  1. I drove a 330e at work the other week. It was lovely to drive. Can't speak to the quality of the hybrid system but it felt really nice. I'd still take my 2.0 Corolla though.
  2. This is right. Holding the button for a sec brings up Google Voice rather than the car system
  3. I have 2.0 touring sport in Manhattan grey and I endorse this message.
  4. So I've had a couple of days with the Corolla. I am delighted so far! The drive up from Kent was really fun using the adaptive cruise control and the lane tracing on the motorway made life very very easy. I averaged about 51 mpg over the 500 miles or so doing a mix of 60-70 and some extended periods well above the speed li... [REDACTED ON THE ADIVCE OF LEGAL COUNSEL] I didn't notice any undue noise as others have commented on. It isn't the quietest car but its just kinda average for noise. It is exceptionally good at keeping up with the lane 3 traffic. The part leather seats in the design trim are amazing. Very comfy and the material feels great. This is the first car I've had with the smart door locking and that is very cool and is definitely something I would miss on a car in future. I was surprised to see the car came with a space-saver wheel. Apparently you can only get it on models without the panoramic sun roof because of the weight and CO2 emissions ETC. The car looks much better in person than on the website. The 17 inch alloys are particularly attractive and look very sporty. One quirk which I don't like/haven't worked out yet is the voice control on the android auto. When I'm using android auto the voice control button activates the car's own voice control, not google. To use the google one you need to touch the button on the screen and this seems a bit odd. I also wish there was a better spot to put my right foot when using cruise control for extended periods like there is for the left. Final niggle: the auto hold feature needs to be activated every time the car is started. On the Golf it stayed on every time when you turned the car on and off. I will need to get in the habit of pressing it each time I get in the car and put my seatbelt on. Small niggles but I thought I needed to present a balanced view. Overall it is a lovely car and a real pleasure to drive. I will get some photos once it has been cleaned up a bit from the drive.
  5. Checked and mine doesn't seem to have that bump
  6. You can get the vin in the extra info on the site
  7. I'll check mine when I pick it up tomorrow
  8. The pillar is more likely correct. Where in the book does it tell you the pressure? In the one I've got it just says look at the door sticker.
  9. I'm definitely not manly enough for a Bullworker. A shakeweight is more my thing. Thanks for the info about the oil!
  10. I want additional oil change between services because the car care nut convinced me it's a good idea. Also I want something in my life that makes me feel more manly.
  11. It's a lot cheaper and still uses less fuel. If someone doesn't care about acceleration/fun factor the 2.0 is madness.
  12. Does anyone else do their own oil changes? I haven't done it for a long time myself but want to do changes myself outside the 10k mile servicing. How much oil do you need to buy to fill it up? Any opinions on what oil to buy?
  13. I just configured a Trek on both the UK and Italian sites. Looking at the rotating picture thing the one from the UK clearly has the little circles on the body indicating integrated parking sensors. The one from Italy clearly does not. For some reason it seems in Italy they don't provide the integrated one. Very strange IMO.
  14. Car arrived at dealer today. Will hopefully collect Monday 25 weeks from order date.
  15. I'm impressed they managed to move that under its own power at all. Real wheel drive has its advantages I suppose.
