  1. Hope you find anything useful in there [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks Paul Here are the main thread links to the progress on both my cars: https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=407726 https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=382716 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. All the details are in this thread: https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=407726 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. All the details are in here - quite a bit of work needed to swap these out! https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=407726 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Search for DetailingWorld and you’ll NEVER use a car wash again - “hand” car washes are a nightmare no matter how good. A sponge contacting paint sets anyone in the know’s teeth on edge [emoji1787][emoji2357] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Best of health to enjoy it. It’s pretty much a bombproof car if looked after - my Avensis (59 plate, 128,000 miles is doing great too) and my Lexus GS450h (56 plate) is superb at 117,000 miles [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Is the tourer actually any heavier - and I’d imagine it is possible more aerodynamic than the saloon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Brings back so many memories of one of the best cars I ever had - a 1997 P reg Carina E 1.8 in silver. Had some work done to it - exhaust, wheels, much sound system work, various bits inside, a Kenlow HotStart fitted, lowered springs, drilled discs/EBC pads etc. I did 100,000 miles in it over 3 1/2 years then sold it for a new Avensis (which lasted 8 months before I bought the car I really wanted - a new Subaru Impreza WRX). Now back in an Avensis (alongside my Lexus GS450h). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 100% sorted for me - this is it months after I Silkaflex’s the rear lights and gaskets, the roof rails and the paint joins at the hinges, as well as replaced the Toyota vents inside the bumper followed by rust treating the boot floor - now looks like this after many months : Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Does this affect a specific Avensis? Mine is a 59 plate T27 1.6 valvematic petrol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hi. I am replacing all of mine just now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I bought a genuine Toyota one for about £10 all in, delivered, from Toyota UK direct. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Does not work [emoji26] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I am about to explore all of this and from research there are several issues: The paint cracks near the roof rails, along joins but very hard to see, so needs the paint sealed up here. Permatex flowable windscreen and glass sealer sorts this. The vents on either side of the inside of the bumper fail around the seals etc. I have ordered a pair of these. The gaskets around the rear lights can fail or become filthy/ineffective. The lights will be striped out to solve this. Hopefully these 3 things will sort the issue for me as it’s not too bad at the moment but has been there since well before I bought it last month. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have tried it on my 2009 59 plate T27 1.6 Valvematic T2 Tourer. It does not work. I have retrofitted the cruise stalk, cable etc - my dash has the light and the Techstream Software even lists it as a setting etc but it just does not work - must be missing something from behind the clutch and brake pedal.
