  1. So I’ve been driving a banger old 206 for the last few days after my poor iQ was in the car hospital getting a new gear box, clutch, and a new section of piping in the engine. Got him back today and he feels like a brand new car! My car was also plagued with the common issue of the viabration between 1800-2200rpm. I think a new clutch has fixed it, the rumble has gone. No noise, no viabration, just smooth quietness. Like I’ve just driven off the forecourt. Think replacing the clutch maybe the root cause of it as it didn’t do it in gear.
  2. Hiya, Been going around google looking for quotes for dents and bodywork repairs - anyone have any experience with this and have an idea of how much it could cost me? Before anyone gets upset at the damage to the iQ, this wasn't me(!) I bought the car with this 🙂
  3. Only just 70,000 miles - I've put 30,000 on since I bought the car. Toyota is famed for it's reliability, but I'm honestly a little shocked the gearbox has just went. He even said he has a hilux that he's now put 300,000 miles on with the same gearbox. I don't especially rag the car either, I love the acceleration in first gear - nobody expects it to be so quick off the mark haha.
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm 25 years old and the owner of a funky iQ that I've affectionately called Iggy Peach (Iggy because I bought him when Bowie died, and peach because it's rear end is peachy). I have some questions about the car if anyone can help that would be awesome! 1. Does the car autolock if you don't get in the car after getting in? Mine seems to lock itself if I don't get in the car after 20-30 seconds, but then sometimes it doesn't? 2. Does anyone know the parts/know-how to add a USB port to one of the 4 slots where the VSC button is? I've seen a picture before for and iPod module, would love to add it! I have a Bluetooth receiver that sucks. 3. Failing the above - does anyone have any recommendations for a Bluetooth kit? One that has a button for me to change music preferably? (like to keep my mobile tucked away whilst I'm driving so there's no temptation) I also have a gripe... Why are the gearboxes so shoddy on these cars? I've just had to spend £700 on getting a new gearbox and clutch fitted! The synchromesh in third has failed and now I can't get into third gear, has anyone else had this problem? Also hoping a new clutch will partly remedy the infamous 2000 RPM vibration issue. Cheers - Paul
