  2. Correct. Mine was registered 8/3/2017 and is Road Tax free. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. You had me ticking all the boxes until you expressed a dislike for black (as is mine) and "All for a budget of 10k"! You are having a laugh? The current webuyanycar valuation on my March 2017 (NO Road Tax!) and mileage of 13573 is £12,000!! 😉 (oh, and btw, it ticks ALL the other boxes you mentioned apart from TSS which wasn't available then)
  4. To answer the 2nd part first, no you should not switch off at all. There are no cons to not switching off. The pros are that your air conditioning will maintain a constant temperature and if the engine needs to start to replenish the battery, it can. The final pro is that you will be immediately ready to move off again without having to restart the system. Do not be tempted to put the car in neutral. The only explanation I can come up with for the 1st part behaviour is, for example, if you open the door before switching off, the car will start to beep if you then switch off (while the door is open) and continue until you shut the door again. If you switch off before opening the door, it shouldn't beep at all.
  5. Sounds to me like something pretty terminal has gone wrong with the SatNav unit itself (it's a separate piggy-back unit).
  6. Ah right. No, that's not a concern at all as it is just the memory allocated for the NAV functionality. You would, of course, only be choosing either the Western Europe region or Eastern but if concerned, you do get the option of only loading the UK maps (further on in the dialogues) if you never drive abroad and that reduces memory usage further...
  7. Sorry, where did you see that? (system memory 93%)
  8. Mine is also a hybrid and I have updated mine before when my main battery has been up over the 60% level (all but the last bar lit on the display) without the engine even starting before the update finished installing. I did keep the lights and heater switched off though and you need to make sure it is just after you have done a journey that has got the engine up to its normal working temperature (otherwise it will start no matter the battery level).
  9. Indeed you should! I would also agree that is the most user unfriendly interface on the web but then, much of Toyota's website is a bit like that... Glad you got sorted 🙂
  10. The version for you would be 6.14.0L and although it seems that it is going to make you "pay" for it, if you click through the entire process, you'll find that eventually the cost for you, as long as it has recognised your vehicle reg, is £0.00 when it is in your basket (hopefully)...
  11. You see that threaded hole between the top two wheel studs? It's supposed to have a countersunk screw in it - tightened! Suggest you go back to whoever did it! Compare it with the other side and you should see what I mean. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. ... and the exact difference between legal and illegal (HID or LED) kits is? (When their dip beam cutoffs are as accurate and intensity levels are the same) They are only a menace if they are misused. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. There was an "E" Mark on one of the attached tags but whether that denotes full approval is anyone's guess... On a further check this morning, the marks I'm seeing don't look like proper marks with the normal format. If this is a concern to you, then don't buy them. It is not to me. I just want to see properly at night when I'm driving. Ironically, just after I took those shots (further down the road) I narrowly swerved and missed a pony that had ran out into the road from a field and the only reason I was able to do that was that I just managed to spot him at the last moment at the nearside edge of the dipped beam. I'm pretty certain that if I had had the standard bulbs in, things might have been completely different... I replayed the footage on my dash cam and was very surprised at how close I came to actually hitting him but luckily I had plenty of road on my offside to use... (reported to 999 when I got home but someone else had already reported it...) Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. This is dip beam alone... Main beam added... Fog lights alone... Fog and dip added... All on!
