  1. Thats plain right rude! and is not tolerated here! I suggest you apologise And I suggest you wind your over-zealous neck back in! It is f**king awful, ok, it's her car, but it's still f**king awful! *****, since when did opinions on a forum mean I have to apologise?! Worlds gone mad!!
  2. I've driven both... Obviously, speed and acceleration the CTS is much quicker (140mph plays 120mph and 0-60 in 8secs vs 9secs), however, the t-sport, being much smaller is much nicer to punt along a twisty road and yes it handles significantly better. I drove a CTS and found it to be very 'mushy' and quite unresponsive in the bends, the brakes also were a cause for serious concern! The engine was a let down too, having sod all beneath the magic 7k rpm, very frustrating dropping out of the 'powerzone'. There are no such problems in the YTS, it has enough torque to ebb along without being thrashed and plenty of power for its size, insurance group and mpg/running costs. Depends on your size needs and wether you actually need the extra horses!
  3. Iv found the Toyo's to be weak in the wet and greasy weather, but good in the dry. Dunlop SP9000's are sh*te all the time. BF Goodrich G-Force Profilers were brilliant at everything but hard to get holdof now. Just had two new Vredestein Sportrac 3's fitted and thus far they are brilliant too... noticable inmprovement in cabin noise, not had chance to thrash em yet though!
  4. Yaris are well known for the wheel not being 'dead-on' when wheels are straight. Local garage was bemused but tracking is now dead-on balls accurate.
  5. Magnatec is awful awful oil. Makes a very noisy engine. Use Millers 10w40, brilliant. Standard toyota filter does that job fine. Make sure you replace the sump plug washer too.
  6. If you're not into modifying then that price from Mr T is very good. Cost £60 to get fronts done at Mr T near me. The toyota brakles are fine for normal to light thrashing duties. Any heavy work and upgrades are required.
  7. I'll start with possible solutions beginning with the easiest... Dirty fuel. (poor quality supermarket fuel) Fuel pump malfunctioning (basically, fuel starvation) Dirty lambda sensors (thinks air is too clean/dirty and thus alters the air/fuel mixture to the wrong level) Spark plugs need changing (clogged up due to deposits running rich... also related to lambdas, or the gap has altered with age etc) VVTi Controller (unlikely) I'd say to fill it with a bit of optimax and a fuel cleaner first, reset ecu and take it for a damned good thrashing (amazing how well the Yaris responds to this) I mean a good hour or so, not a run round the block. Then check the spark plugs, if it still does it, then get it checked.
  8. There's a Corsa VXR 888 available now... 225bhp! Niiice. Until you encounter any element resembling a corner.
  9. Mine went at 70k. To be fair, they have every right to refuse as you should hear it... it's pretty loud, it doesn't just go, it decreases gradually in its operation and creates a lot of bearing noise. But there's no harm in asking!
  10. Check the plastic trim that goes into wheel arch, may be moving when the car moves and lightly touching wheel? Could actually be poor oil in the engine if it's a chuf chuf chuf noise like you describe, use Millers 10w40, it makes a massive difference!
  11. My lock button is dead too, I just used the other key. About £80 for a new key iirc.
  12. Toyota OEM yaris discs corrode very quickly, you're just as well putting some local car suppliers versions on, cheaper and don't scrape as much. End of the day, its just a little bit of rust, nothing serious.
  13. What an annoying useless piece of junk. £63?!?! Rather buy some fuel to burn.
