  1. A set of 4 BK matt black/polished rim alloys for Aygo/C1/107 fitted with Kumho 175/50 tyres (all with good remaining tread). Please refer to ebay ad - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251525976669
  2. The horn on our new Auris is even more pathetic than the one on our Aygo. I can live with the Aygo horn, but had to change to Auris hooter for one with a bit more ooomph!
  3. No wind noise on my new 2014 Auris (Touring Sports). In fact, it is the quietest and smoothest car/engine I have ever owned. Feels like a silky smooth V6.
  4. I remember these times fondly. Queuing up in a grubby DVLA office. You hope and prayed that you was not behind a dealer with a wad of new registration/tax applications to deal with for the new registration letter.
  5. If you are lucky it can go through in 2 weeks, but that can go to 6 weeks at new registration plate change (March/September). The following quote is from a main dealer in response to my above post on another forum - "Just a quicker pointer on the plate change Truthseeker. If the reg is on retention it can go straight on to the new car (as long as the keeper has a retention certificate), if however the plate is currently on a vehicle this is where it will take up to 6 weeks and yes it is easier for the customer to take the car on the current plate and await the transfer to go through. Why th
  6. If you are thinking of changing your current car for a new one, and you have not changed cars in the last year or so, you may not be aware of the changes at DVLA, concerning personal plate transfers. It can now take the dealer 4-6 weeks to arrange the transfer of a personal plate to a new car, which is most frustrating. My advise is to just put your current personal registration on a retention certificate (£105 instead of £80 transfer fee), then take delivery of your new or used car on it's new/current number, and transfer yourself when relevant paperwork issued. Most dealers are happy with th

  8. Got it and have now posted. Many thanks.
  9. Just a heads up for the sale of my wife's White, 2011 (""11"") 5 door Aygo MMT semi-automatic in late May/early June. 1 owner, and covered just 9,800 miles. Full Toyota service history with 2 years Toyota warranty remaining. Completely unmarked paint and interior. Both non smokers and has always been garaged. Will come with a new MOT (due 21st May), and it's yearly service. The "Go!" model was top of the range with - air con, sat nav, blue-tooth. MP3 input, rear privacy glass etc. Price £6250. Will post photos later. Further details please email me at - apettitt@sky.com
  10. That's what I want to do but cant find it!
  11. Can we advertise our car on this forum, and if so how. Saw lots of dealer cars for sale but could not find a place for private ads. Thanks.
  12. I read the BBC post, but am struggling to agree with it's conclusions of (up to) £100 a year saving. Anyway, I always reverse into a parking bay when on a road, not to save money, but it is so much safer (and legal of course).
  13. And with a 5 year warranty as opposed to the C1/107's 3 years.
