  1. Welcome to the club, I hope you get as much fun and economy (I know, as mad as it sounds it is possible) out of your Auris HSD as I do from mine.
  2. I only use it to pull away a little quicker from a standing start. Normal mode I find is as quick and less noisy when i'm already moving.
  3. Had the same problem on my Auris, connector failed, they sorted it in about 25mins and got me on my way full of caffeine :-) must say always been very lucky with my local dealer.
  4. I don't mind the auto lights to a point. That is going under the local railway bridges below a main station means they come on briefly and go off again. Looks like I'm flashing people. Even got shouted at for it once...
  5. Car back, immaculate. Very impressed with the quality of repairs. They even gave it a full valet for me :-) Time to fit the blackvue now ;-)
  6. Not fixed yet, parts are all in and work started. Two weeks to get it back good as new. :)
  7. I have documented it and requested copies of both phone calls from them seeing as they record for 'quality and training' purposes. Once i've finished dealing with the claim overall then i'll raise it. :-)
  8. I was told that the original garage was, but digging found out they were not. I was pretty firm but polite and they caved stating that they did not know whether they were actually approved as they don't store those details. Turns out my boss also knows the owner so it may be ready sooner :-)
  9. I complained about the expectation that it should be written off given the speed of the accident. It went to a new bodyshopyesterday and low and behold i'll have it back in 3 weeks after being repaired by a Toyota approved bodyshop. Success!
  10. Happy motoring, they're cracking cars for the engine size :-)
  11. Funny you mention that I have on order (ordered it about 24 hours before the incident) an in car DVR with gps. Paid a fair amount more but figured what with all the whiplash claims and 'It wasn't my fault honest' approaches nowadays I felt it best be safe than sorry. Knew I should've paid for next day delivery :(
  12. Fortunately I had a witness who saw them and has agreed to provide insurers with an account of events. I would imagine as she pulled out of a side road across give way markings and hit me from the side that it's going to be pretty straight forward right? *insert nervous look here* J
  13. That's great thanks guys. I have a hire car from them for now (I only have to pay £15 for the fuel 'surcharge') which I have every intention of claiming back as I had a full effin' tank and can guarantee it won't be when I get it back. Being without a car was due to me only being provided a car for two weeks after the decision has been made by the insurers, not sure where I stand if I contest it but as you say not my fault. I do have the gap insurance and worst case scenario is I claim on that to get the differnce back but i've never had to use it before (hey i've never had it before). She adm
  14. Thanks Martin, wish I was that lucky. Just wondering what sort of time frame I would be looking at for Abraxas (underwriters) to pay out for the gap insurance. Not liking having to bike to work in the bad weather.
  15. Can't on my friends Aygo she took delivery of last month. Given that they're intended for daylight use I wouldn't have thought it would be a feature manufacturers would enable you to chose to have on at night, they are pretty bright and not 'dipped' in any way. Happy to be proven wrong :)
