  1. I have recently just changed my daughter's surrounds from gloss black to gloss white, bought them direct from Toyota on line for £39 each 🤔🙄 and I now have the spare gloss black ones if anyone is interested.

    Or call Autoglass to come and finish their job properly !!
  3. Will they pass MOT or will you be taking them out for it ?
  4. And if anyone is or has been using bulbs which are UK legal and are exceptionally good, please let me know, as I'd like to have the best for my daughter's car...thanks.
  5. I popped into Halfords last night to see what choice of bulbs they had and they only had one choice and it was their own branded bulb at £22 each for one bulb...so I ordered the below bulbs on Amazon when I was in the shop, £11.99 a pair including delivery, arrived at 9am this morning and fitted in the car at 9.15 am. They look brighter, but I'll test them properly in the dark. I didn't read the description properly and did not realise they came in pairs and ordered 2, so there is a spare set in the boot.

  6. If it is the sticker pack, it should come off very easily using a heat gun or a hot hair dryer, but be very careful and do not over heat or get too close, as you will melt the plastic part of the car under the sticker. Just apply even heat as you are peeling the sticker off and it should come off including the adhesive. Applying the new sticker will not be that easy if you have not done this sort of thing before.

    Giving it more revs, is better than stalling, surely even a driving instructor would agree with that !! Get the instructor to take the Aygo for a spin 😄
  8. That was probably written in the 70s when we had Granada's and Zephyrs....if anyone remembers them !!! Cars like that were pretty long and the back ends swung round. Can't see a Aygo doing that and if it does, the driver was driving too fast round a corner !!!
  9. That's what I did with my daughter's Aygo as soon as I bought it. I put two new Yokohama Blue Earth's on the front and intend replacing the rear two new budget ones which came with it as soon as I get round to it with the same Yokohama's. In regards to what is the best brand, nobody and I mean nobody has the correct answer, because when it comes to tyres, they are down to the individual driver and what they prefer. Best thing to do when it comes to tyres, do as you have done, ask for input from the forum members, then do your own research on reviews and then make your decision.

    I've just bought one for my daughter and test drove a few and read some threads about it on this forum, as I thought there was something wrong, but apparently, this is just what they are like, apparently, it puts some people off buying one. I had to explain to my daughter that it's not her driving technique, it's the Aygo.
  11. Thanks, that's why I have stated 2018, hopefully that should cover it. There is one on eBay with a part number for £35, but it just states 2014 onwards mark 2. Could be any year !!
  12. I have sent a request out using one of those UK Breakers Yard Parts Finder websites and stated it must be a reverse camera from a Toyota Aygo 2018 onwards and hopefully will ensure it has the guidelines in the camera.

  14. ....and yes, stay clear of the Chinese ones, however, Pumpkin and Xtrons have came a long way and are the better of the Chinese ones. Just do your research, should you go down that route.
  15. I just had a quick check on eBay for Pioneer double din with Android auto etc, there are loads to chose from, Pioneer, Kenwood Alpine etc. Check item number below for example. You'll get more for your money buying a used one, but you take your chances !!! 372636314453
