  1. I recently got a SanDisk Clip Sport Plus Mp3 player and it supports Bluetooth, so I thought I would connected it up to the TNS510, on paper they should work together and support the right Bluetooth formats, but when I try to connect it I get an error “Bluetooth connection failed. Verify the passcode”. The manual for the player says, The car audio system must support A2DP, Some car systems will ask you to enter a code before pairing. Please use "0000". Has anyone else had experience with the TNS510 and Bluetooth, could they shad any light on if I am doing something wrong or if it’s just going to work. Steve
  2. I got my H&R Lowering Springs from demon-tweeks, demon-tweeks suspension just put in your reg and it will list what's available, they do have coil overs also I think.
  3. All black, it looks a bit darker in real life.
  4. I went for the Luxury and I would say the pile is thicker than the standers carpet set, but we are not talking shagpile or anything, it’s still a car carpet. The whole mat is stiff with a non-slip backing. With regards the shape it fitted to the shape of the car and has cut-outs for the seatbelts, if you look at the link the picture is the shape you get.

  5. Hello, I have just done this very thing in my 2009 IQ2 and I also made a guide of how I fitted the camera, see the attached word doc. Steve Toyota IQ Hardwiring Dashcam Power Guide.docx
  6. I would not think its a good idea to be supplying power directly into the OBD2 port, I would not think that would be safe for the car, I think you need to think of a solution that is connected directly to the battery, if its not going to be in use for a long time, can you not just disconnect one of the battery terminals as the battery will keep its charge if its not connected. You could always get something like one of these jump start kits if you are worried about it not starting. https://www.halfords.com/motoring/battery-maintenance/jump-starters/
  7. I think you can download it from here Toyota IQ 2012 Owner's Manual
  8. I have just got a 2009 IQ and have been having the same thoughts as you, I was unable to find any instructions on how to do an upgrade, but after much investigation I come across this on the German forum (you will need to use an in-browser translator to read it) but its instructions to effectively fit a standard W5W bulb into the original housing. I have done this myself and I would say it took about 45 minutes from start to finish but does involve a small bit of soldering. This is the bulb I fitted and I would say it gives you about 10 times more light then the original (very much like his pictures on the thread) and will light the cabin like its daylight with a nice soft light, it also light the boot area and fades in and out when it turns on and off. Philips 127994000KX2 X-tremeVision LED W5W T10 4000K CeraLight, Set of 2 Credit should go to CWein from the iq-board.de forum. Page 15 posted on Friday December 28th 2012, 2:20 pm Steve
  9. I have been on the lookout for a boot mat for the IQ that is for when you have the seats down, I did receive the official one with my car but I found that it was crap as it would never sit flat when you have both the seats down. Most places online only seem to sell a mat for when the seats are up, so I thought I would post on here that I had a mat made up by Premier Products that I would recommend, as they only start from £14 and you can get them in a ton of crazy colours if you want, I got it in black with a black trim and opted for the Luxury Carpet and it cost me £23.99 all in with shipping. It was shipped in a few days and the quality and workmanship is top-notch. Here is a link to the IQ seats down mat. TOYOTA IQ (WHEN REAR SEATS ARE DOWN) (2008-2015) TAILORED BOOT MAT
  10. You can get the upgraded Hir2 headlight bulbs direct from Toyota on eBay, the listing has the wrong description but the correct part number, so I contacted them and they confirmed they were correct and I have since bought them and fitted them with no issues.

  11. Does anyone know if Tarquin is still about, as I would like to get home to do the light upgrade, I have PMed him but not heard anything back.
  12. I saw that but I get this error from the link, I have just noticed that I was not logged in when the new page opened so it was giving me and error doh! Cheers that seems to be what I was looking for :0)
  13. I have a IQ-2 2009 1L and I have been searching for the Toyota workshop manual for it but I have not been having much luck, would anyone be able to point me in the right direction where I should be looking for it.
  14. Hello, I am a new IQ-2 2009 owner and I come from a VW background and previously used the VAG-COM a lot to fault find and make software modifications like turning the lights on at a set speed and making the doors auto lock at 10mph. But I cannot seem to find any lists of possible options Techstream, does anyone know of what mods you can do to the IQ or are there any lists around the Web of possible tweeks. Regards Steve
