    I want one!

    Cool.....tempted myself
  2. Mine was ordered Mid November last year.....manufactured 24 December....arrived at dealership mid February
  3. It's ok to have the Road Hero facing down (without the bag) but that means you need to buffer the alloy wheel from touching the floor of the boot to avoid noise/vibration, rather than having the rubber tyre against the floor. I also think that the original Toyota alloy is not as concave as the Road Hero and may not present the same issue. Agree about retaining bolt only necessary in extreme situations but the the fact is, there is always provision for one.
  4. Iain....just one more thing....if you lay the Road Hero in it's boot space with the outside of the wheel facing up (as I did) you will need a longer securing bolt. This is the one I bought https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323856777744 That is just a bit too long but I made a washer from 1/2" plywood to fit under it and it's perfect. The shorter bolt https://www.thewheelshop.co.uk/product/toyota-rav4-2005-2019-space-saver-spare-wheel-retaining-fixing-bolt-screw/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw is only long enough if you have the spare wheel with its outside facing down. Hope that makes sense
  5. Mike... it's this panel I have to replace (see pic). I'll contact my dealer after the weekend.
  6. Thanks Adrian....does it come already painted in the black?
  7. Unfortunately had a mishap with my RAV4 Plug in today and managed to rip off the lower n/s rear door panel. Number of the lugs are broken as well so will have to source a new panel. I think these panels are a sort of piano black for the Dynamic bi-tone Plug in, anyone know where I might get it? Part number appears to be 75078 42050. Or will I have to take it to a body repair shop? Appreciate any suggestions.
  8. Seems to me that Toyota Europe are not running the system and servers in a true production mode. My previous experience with Volvo On Call was far superior and I can't really remember not being able to sign in remotely. They need to invest in making the system production ready and resilient because we as customers see it as part of the overall product offering.
  9. working now for me Nick
  10. I should qualify this and say that virtually all my journeys lately have been short low speed events which would explain why I'm seeing the projected range
  11. I have to say that hasn't been my experience lately. Checking actual mileage of all my trips has been very close to the total forecast range. Happy
  12. This morning after a full charge it was showing 55 miles with Aircon..... impressive
  13. At the end of the day it costs an extra £355 per year (£30/Month) Road Tax due to my PHEV being over £40K list price. It's certainly not enough of a premium, in the context of the total costs of acquisition and operation, to put me off owning it.
  14. One more thing to consider is that the Road Hero weighs 18Kg, whereas the equivalent 18" steel wheel (Wheelshop) will weigh quite a bit more.

    MyT app again

    Have you tried the VIN instead?
  16. Here's the link https://www.thewheelshop.co.uk/product-category/space-saver-wheels/toyota-1/toyota-rav4-1/?filter_vehicle-year=2005-present-day
  17. Mine's an 18" Road Hero spare too, but "The Wheelshop" lists both a 17" and 18" spacesaver as applicable to the RAV4
  18. It might be the small detachable tray inside the armrest, check it out.
  19. On the motorway it's often the racing Fiesta and Corsa drivers that are right up your as* when your in the outside lane overtaking.... really pis*es me off This is my first Toyota and I really love it, only had it less than 3 months and my affection is growing daily. 90% of my driving is EV and yes I'm now seeing a range in the low 50's. Never use LTA. I had a Volvo with Pilot Assist which also favoured keeping the car too close to the left and so didn't use it much as it was uncomfortable as you described. All in all the PHEV has exceeded my expectations.
  20. Can't say I get much wind noise that I particularly notice, but tyre noise yes sometimes unless the road surface is pretty smooth.
  21. I should have said that the inbuilt mobile connection is only for Toyota connected car services. You can't use it to connect or hotspot to the internet for your own use.
  22. For my non-Toyota Road Hero spacesaver, this is from the supplier's website: Does Road Hero come with new nuts or bolts? If so, do I need to use these to fit it to my car? Yes, Road Hero is supplied with new nuts or bolts, whichever is appropriate. These do need to be used with Road Hero. The original equipment bolts are not suitable. I haven't checked to see if this is really the case
  23. Lucian....here in the UK there is a built in mobile (SIM) connection for all the connected services but not sure if it's 3g or 4g. There will be in North America too but no idea if LTE.
  24. My Road Hero space saver (for my PHEV) came with it's own set of bolts. Was told by the vendor they were needed. Don't know about Toyota supplied space savers as not available for the PHEV.
