  1. I think you all may be missing the point here. This sounds like so many things that are now "new and improved" which of course means that they are easier to use, faster service, cheaper and better in all ways. And saves the planet ,win win all round when you look at it properly.๐Ÿคฃ
  2. Thank you Hornet,yesI liked my CRV very much too, very spacious and comfortable. Like you I had a big change in lifestyle which made the CRV redundant,big deisel, changing to low mileage etc. From your pictures it looks like mine was the mark before yours, and was ES trim if I remember,no screens just buttons to control which was what I wanted, the parking sensors were handy and the heated seats in winter. With the current situation I probably cost myself a few grand selling it then, but it went to a relative,so not bothered . Thanks for the info though as I do like to keep up to date on car values. Hope you are enjoying your new Aygo.
  3. Out of interest,can I ask which model CRV you had Hornet ? And was that a part ex or trade sale or private? My interest is because I sold a 2012 2.2 idect in April 2020 and was wondering if it would have paid off keeping it for while. Academic now of course as the ship has sailed.
  4. It's coming on well Hasan, who'd of thought so much dirt could accumulate on seat belts Looks like you had a nice sunny day to do it too which is always a bonus.๐Ÿ–๏ธ It was a bit on the warm side oop here too, when I went to lift the hatch to put my shopping in , I noticed it was sticking a fair bit, having sat in the sun. I have a tube of that gummi stuff, not the ยฃ15 one though, but hope it's good enough.
  5. I can only guess Tony as I am not knowledgeable on tech stuff. Bearing in mind that the car body is most likely a negative ground as in when jump starting connect to a metal part rather than negative terminal on the battery. And there have been many cases of lightening hitting a TV Ariel on a house roof and thousands of volts shooting into the TV and blowing it up. I reckon a huge voltage surge like that would knock out all the electronic equipment stopping the car. This may be all total nonsense of course , flash is the man who understands the tech. But makes sense to me, so far, I would love to know if some other reason as very interested in why things that are unusual happen.
  6. About 11 million to one I remember reading once,as opposed to 14 million to one winning the lottery jackpot. Though that may have changed by now. Also read that a car is about the safest place to be in a thunderstorm/lightening due to being a Faraday cage effectively. You're right Cyker a brilliant bit of footage ๐Ÿ˜Š
  7. Are sure those clever Americans have not just invented a super fast method of Charging the battery?
  8. A post it note on the steering wheel saying "drive on the right" does not hurt. Happy travels ๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. Shame about the "service" you received or rather did not. I am starting to think if all dealer employees are pathological liars,or is it some other motivation. Maybe pressure to just make a living,a pretty poor way of making a living by lying to, and deceiving customers though. I would far sooner a dealer or garage said "look,we can't really be bothered to do a good job on your car,all we are interested in is faffing about a bit and charging you ยฃ100+ per hour for our incompetence" You know where you stand then.๐Ÿค—
  10. Thanks Hasan, I only wish I could do the jobs on this car like you are doing on yours. As it is I have to pay someone to do everything, and of course they do not care to do the jobs with care, only the money. So the only reason mine is in the condition it is in,is down to the previous owner and it being garaged for the first 16 years of it's life. Keep updating on yours , it's looking good. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  11. Awful thing to happen, and I understand your worry even if the car is recovered. Even if no visible damage, car thieves are notorious for thrashing the cars they steal among other things,as I am sure you know anyway. I really hope that this works out ok for you in the end, and maybe get another equivalent car with no thieving hands having touched it. Good luck ๐Ÿคž
  12. Took a picture of my Tsport in the sunlight to try and catch the bronze looking fleck in the paintwork. A combination of poor quality smart phone and shaky hands may make it look like I took it with a potato.๐Ÿ˜‚ I can't remember or find the thread where I was talking about this colour with Cyker I think. Anyway , here it is.
  13. Is there no police investigation? sorry about your car ๐Ÿ˜ข,are yyou in Athens btw?
  14. I know that my car 2003 is from a different era. But it came to me with 3 keys,2 black with the transponders and 1 grey with no buttons on it. Also a tag with a number stamped on it. I am guessing the number could be used to order a new key from a Toyota dealer, hope I don't need to ๐Ÿคจ ยฃ100 or so for new one I guess. No idea what the grey key is for unless for valet parking , but then if it has no transponder it would not deactivate the immobilizer ๐Ÿค”
