  1. Yes. Get a Parrot Bluetooth kit fitted. Got the MKI9000 in mine. Works a treat.

    My poor corners

    Claim of his car insurance for the damage to yours.and get it fixed. Simple.
  3. Think the white flaky paint issue is only on cars up to 2011. I've got a 2014 white iq and no issues at all.
  4. Hi. You'll love the IQ. The one to go for in an ideal world would be the IQ3 that has the 1.33 engine however these are very rare especially in auto. Your best bet is therefore the IQ2 in an auto as these are a lot more plentiful for sale. There are quite a few on auto trader at the moment with low miles. Mine has been really reliable. Go for one with FTSH. The IQ2 comes with keyless locking, auto lights & wipers, climate control, electric windows, self dimming rear view mirror. Some things to consider on the IQ is that the interior light is shockingly bad and it doesn't have Bluetooth. This can be rectified by interior lighting upgrade by Tarquin on here and getting a Parrot MKI 9000 Bluetooth fitted. Good luck in your search
  5. Just found this..... wrong model, colour and spec but check out the miles!! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323790672593

    Engine change

    You're better off just buying a 1.33.
  7. Quick search on Blackcircles.com brought this up. Two makes around £55. Half the price of Bridgestones. I've used budget brands on my IQ2 and have had no issues at all.

    Sunroof ?

    Malko83 Just seen pics of your H300. Very nice. They want over £1000 to supply and fit that version plus will need complete new headlining according to fitter. Think the H100 pop up might be the way to go for me.

    Sunroof ?

    Hi. Has anybody got any pics of sunroof installed in their iq?.who did you use to install and how much? I've been quoted £325 + vat for a Webasto H100 pop up sunroof and £900 + vat for H300 electric spoiler type. Thanks
  10. Get a parrot Bluetooth installed and then you can do sat navigation through your phone plus make calls and listen to your music. I've got Parrot MKI 9000, it's brilliant.
  11. Cupholder/storage solution. I've always struggled with the fact there's only one cup holder and limited storage cubbie holes in the centre console area of the IQ. The door pockets are great but the storage under 12 volt socket means things sometimes slide and fall out. I follow a guy on twitter in the U.S. @iq_scion who has come up with a cheap way of getting 3 cup holders out of one and also some extra storage for oddments. Please see pics below of triple cup holder on eBay. Cost me £6.99 and now means you can have up to 3 drinks stored or use the extra holes for small storage. It's made of strong rubber/foam material and fits in original cup holder. It will also deform and return to original shape when you slide passenger seat forward if you leave it in situ. Alternatively just remove it when sliding passenger seat. I'm very pleased with it. 😀 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F371894012937 LB

    Iq 2008

    Think there was a Toyota recall for this. Speak to your local Toyota dealer.
  13. I have the Parrot MKI 9000. It's the one without a screen and works off of voice recognition. On mine the small microphone is up by the rear view mirror. The control unit that you press to make/end calls I have put on the lower dash on the opposite side to where start button & door mirror controls are. Under where mileage/radio display is. It's well worth getting and is very discreet unlike the ones with digital screens. I had it installed by a company called Creative Sounds in Winchmore Hill in North London although there will no doubt be a stockist list on their website. https://www.parrot.com/uk/car-kits#discover-car-kits You won't need sat nav when you have Bluetooth as you can play sat nav and music through it via your smartphone. Good luck with respray.
  14. That's one rare car you have. Dacuma grey was only available on IQ3. I've got the interior lighting upgrade on my 2014 IQ2 and Parrot Bluetooth. Both well worth investing in. Tarquin on here is the man to speak to about lighting upgrade.
