  1. If I’m honest…I haven’t a clue, all I’ve been able to work out is that it’s Gen 4. spoke to the dealership and they quoted £380 for the rails alone, without the crossbars. I most certainly don’t want to spend that sort of money on them!
  2. Hi all, I’m looking to get some roof rails for my 68 plate RAV4, however everywhere I look says my car would have to have the type of rail clamp that has a clamp leg that goes around the roof into the door recess, which I’m not too keen on. My car has blanking covers that when removed have brackets in the rain gutter on the roof that look like they’re mounting points. I can only guess that these are either the fixing points for the rails to mount to, or they’re the “fixpoints” for the cross bars that go onto a fixpoint system. My only issue is that I can find anything that would say
  3. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363025651764 I’ve just bought this one 2 days ago, expecting delivery in the next couple days. I’ll let you know how it is!
  4. Glad to hear I've went for the better option then. Thanks for that! Nice to see it has some of the 'questionable' phrasing I'm used to from using VCDS on the Audi, I predict google will be my friend on that front. Thanks for showing me the examples!
  5. Cheers for the info. Decided to take the plunge and order a copy of Techstream, purely because of the subscription cost of Carista. As handy as a bluetooth module for my phone would be, I'd rather just a one off payment. Had a flick through the Carista options for my car though and they seem to more or less meet the customisation options that I want, so seems like I should be happy with what I can do! At least in the early stages of tinkering! Thanks again!
  6. Thanks for clarifying, I'd spoken with my mate who has VCDS and he said that he wasn't sure that there was such software for a Toyota as they don't use the reprogrammable modules, they just need to be swapped out. Do you know what kind of options are available to adjust? It's relatively basic things I want to change like I mentioned before. Do you have Techstream yourself? Had a quick search of Fleabay and there seems to be a lot of versions of it, just wondered if you can clarify which version works the best.
  7. Hello all, Just a quick introduction, picking up my 67 plate RAV4 Hybrid on Thursday after trading in my Audi A4 (costing too much to run and 9 years old). My names Dale and I live in the North East. With my Audi I had access to software that plugged into the OBDII port and allowed customisation of basically everthing, called VCDS. If i wanted I could tell the car it was an R8 (but this would destroy the car...). Anyway my question is what is the Toyota version of this? And does anyone had any recommendations/preferences of communications methods/software? Basic stuff like a bleep wh
