  1. Found this on ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/325178682284?hash=item4bb628ebac:g:8jgAAOSwt2didXvZ There are also a few scrapyards on there with write off cars .
  2. Looking at the Mazda 2 specs the main difference I found was that all the grades came with a Tyre repair kit instead of a spare tyre.
  3. I have the Nextbase front and rear fitted in my yaris. They were already installed as it was an ex demo model. It is a very neat installation although I have not checked the fuse box to see if the cover is actually fitted. This was from Johnsons on the Wirral.
  4. I have had the same symbol occasionally appear but never in a specific place. It has usually occurred at dawn , dusk or when there is poor visibility so I have put it down to the camera not reading signs properly.
  5. My 2020 Yaris is getting the recall done along with a service this Friday. Do not really use the cruise control but might as well get it checked and rectified if needed.
  6. I was always under the impression that in the UK scrolling DAB text had to be disabled as it could be distracting when driving.
  7. I was able to adjust the time on my Yaris launch edition via the multimedia screen . I found how to adjust it in the multimedia section of the manual.
  8. Just checked and my Yaris is also affected. Due for a service in the next month so will arrange for it to be done at the same time.
  9. I had the same symptoms the other morning when the car had a thick layer of frost on it. The Lane assist and the speed sign indicator failed to work. I also assumed it was frost as it cleared when the car warmed up.
  10. Found this product gives a good fast shine and can be applied to a wet car so really quick.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Autoglym-Rapid-Aqua-Wax-Complete/dp/B0060KJLKY/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=autoglym+aqua+wax&qid=1645483203&sr=8-1
  11. My Launch edition failed to start a few weeks ago after being left for 3 days during a cold snap. Called Toyota assist and the AA sent a local recovery agent who started it immediately with a power bank. Bought one of these off Amazon straight after to keep in the car.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hilka-Tools-83850400-Starter-Power/dp/B076615FJZ/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 Was out cleaning my car this afternoon and used the Power bank to start a Audi with a flat battery nearby. Went back to cleaning my car and my battery was also flat and car would not start. Connected power bank and it immediately started. Power bank was still showing full charge afterwards. So glad I bought it and everything is in a zipped wallet that fits neatly underneath passenger seat.
  12. https://www.aldi.co.uk/auto-xs-obd-ii-fault-code-reader/p/705061560241500 Just seen this coming up on Thursday. Posted it in case somebody is after one.
  13. My yaris was bought as an ex demo and had the front and rear next base dashcam already fitted. I do like the extra reassurance given by it although thankfully not had to download any footage yet. The rear camera is very neatly fitted just below the high level brake light and the wiring has been routed through it.
  14. Hi Tom I used Revive to repair some stone chips on my Yaris Launch edition. Service and price was very good. If you send them photos of the damage they will get back to you with a quote. That will give you an idea of the cost and you will be able to compare it with other quotes. https://revive-uk.com
  15. After a lot of searching was able to find replacement tpms valve stems on Ali express at a very good price. Had 4 delivered in two weeks for under £7. Have had the broken sensor valve stem replaced at local tyre fitter and was told that they were of comparable quality to originals. |Toyota quoted £150 for replacement and cheapest compatible was £80. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002604560456.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.395f3ef3Mmx01G&algo_pvid=22f23bb7-f094-49f3-8102-62dc94e26065&algo_exp_id=22f23bb7-f094-49f3-8102-62dc94e26065-2&pdp_ext_f={"sku_id"%3A"12000021357349785"}
