  1. I had this problem a lot over the years doing MOT's on cars after they had been parked up for a while.In 99% of the cases i sat pressing the hazard switch on & off for a while which sorted them.Best of luck i hope it works on yours.

    15" Alloy Wheels

    Has anyone got or know of a set of black 15" alloy wheels for sale.With or without tyres & i don't mind ones that require referb as long as the price is right.
  3. I would check what peugeot say as it's virtually the same.

    That's what i thought so i need to know what one is the simplest to fit.I have no idea if there would be any wiring there to work with another unit that Toyota fit.

    I have a 2015 Aygo with a standard stereo is there a direct replacement one with sat nav that i can fit please.
  7. Any car paint abrasive polish such as paint restorer will transform them.They are coated with clear lacquer that fades in the sun, if they are wet flatted & re lacquered they come up like new.
  8. Have you looked at the Peugeot equivalent,I know they fitted on older Aygo's.
  9. My BMW X5 will go flat after a week,modern cars have a lot still live all the time so can not be left to long.
  10. I must admit Zuh i have not been on a long trip in the aygo yet as i would use the X5 but if i decide to leave my caravan down the coast i will try it.If i find i can not put up with it i will probably sell them both and get something in between.
  11. I have a 2015 aygo and have been pleasantly surprised how good it is,pulls very well for 1lt.Mine has 29k on the clock and drives very smoothly with no rattles,creaks ect.I am used to driving my X5 BMW that is a 4.4 V8 but love driving the Aygo.

    Tyre pressures

    Work have there gauges checked on a regular basis.

    Tyre pressures

    I run mine on Toyota spec & find it's ok.Have you checked them with a different gauge in case the one you use is wrong ? If you lower the pressure from toyota spec it will wear the outer edges of the tyres & could be less stable.Mine is 2015 so Mk2.

    Rusty bottom

    When i bought my 2015 it was nice hot weather so really dry,i used spray grease on all seams and suspension.Its simple for me as i used a ramp at work.
  17. There are loads of roof bars for the citroen C1 on Ebay which will fit straight on our Aygo's so a roof box could then be fitted.

    I will be upset if its as low as fifty,My BMW X5 v8 i run on LPG @ 55p Lt works out to at least 40mpg.

    I have just bought a 2015 Aygo & have no faith in manufactures figures.I will work it out tank full to tank full my self hopefully it will be 60 + MPG.

    Sat Nav upgrade

    Great information thanks Devon,
  21. When i need some i will check and see if there is another size thats close,As long as the rolling radius is the same & not much difference in width they should be fine.
  22. Just sold my Chevy G20 day van & bought a 2015 aygo,but i also have a BMW X5 4.4.I have just retired and wanted something small to run around local.

    Sat Nav upgrade

    Hi all,I have just bought a 2015 Aygo that has not got the sat nav.Is it much of a job to fit the sat nav or just a straight forward plug & play change.
  24. I have never come across front calipers that do not just push back.The only ones that have this problem are on the rears & if fitted with electronic hand brake may need diagnostic's.
  25. Putting filler of any sort in a sill on a Aygo is a mot failure.It will be near suspension or seat belt mounting so must be a welded repair i am afraid.
