  1. I took a car to one of those car washes once... never again! I always do mine myself, this way i know the job is done properly.
  2. Mine sometimes starts with the battery but by the time i get to the end of the road the engine cuts in. Sometimes it starts with the engine and then reverts to battery quite quickly. It's perfectly normal for it to be this way.
  3. I've been meaning to take a look at my car since i seen your thread but everytime i go out i forgot. Today i cleaned it and made a point of taking a look. I can tell you that my wheel arches definitely don't look anything like yours. Mine are a mixture of pastic and felt and look very neat.
  4. I went from a Peugeot 3008 to Corolla HB and i'm loving the lower ride. The only bad point for me is the storage space inside as there doesn't seem to be anywhere to put anything. The door pockets are rather small and there's not really any storage near the gear shift. The reason i chose the HB over the TS was because i didn't really need the extra boot space. Most of the time there's only myself and my daughter. My daughter is also learning to drive and i take her out in the car inbetween her driving lessons and i thought a HB would be easier for her. I find it a very smooth ride and the seats are extremely comfortable, which is a huge plus in comparision to the 3008.
  5. Do you reset it everytime you fill the car up? I do and mine always changes depending on where i go.
  6. It's perfectly normal for the temperature gauge to show where it is when you first start a car from cold. You won't do any damage to your car if you fill your tank up. I always fill my tank up to the top and always round it up to the nearest £1 if it stops short.
  7. Did you reset the MPG before the journey home? I always reset mine each time i fill my tank up.
  8. That's rather low but it will also depend on how you were driving. If you had your foot to the floor and driving at high speeds then this could be why it's so low. Most of my journeys are round town and this tank of fuel i'm getting 62.5mpg. On a long journey i would expect to get over 70mpg with my driving style.
  9. Indeed and then chose it just for HUD ... 😐
  10. Mine is denim blue and it's really nice.
  11. What i don't understand is why buy a £26,000 car based purely on the HUD?
  12. I ordered my 1.8 HB in mid Jan and collected in on 19th April.
  13. Thanks. I don't even know why the ambient lighting is even on there then because it makes no sense. I had this on my previous car and it was really lovely to drive at night with that on.
  14. Thanks for your reply. Last night i was just sat in my car and not driving but the lights on the doors were off. I'll have a look in the manual again to see where i can change the brightness.
  15. I've had my 1.8 HB corolla (design) for 2 months and last night was the first night i've used it in the dark and wondered where the ambient lighting was because i couldn't see it. I waited until tonight to go back out and have a proper look. I can just about see it on the cup holders and the open tray but i can't see it at all on the front doors. I know it's supposed to have it because i double checked on the spec guide. Does anyone know why i can't see it please? Is there some way i can change this? I've had a look through everything that i can see on the infortainment system but nothing seems obvious. I would appreciate any help as it would save a trip to the dealers on Monday. Thanks in advance.
  16. When i first had my car back in April i wondered what on earth that noise was when driving slowly in EV mode, forwards or reverse. Then i realised it's the warning for pedestrians. I have some very strange looks from people when driving round car parks, or when go out of a space haha.
  17. There was a message on my app this morning saying they are experiencing some issues and are trying to solve the problem. Though, i must admit that past few days it has been a lot better.
  18. I can only see just over half your car and both pictures are identical, was this an error?
  19. Yes it does seem that way. I ordered my 1.8 HB in mid Jan and collected it on 19th April.
  20. That's something i really miss because my previous car had it. I have no idea why they didn't add it.
  21. The size of the tank is small so take that into consideration when filling up. My previous car was a Peugeot 3008 and it took about £85-90 of diesel to fill it up and i only got about 390 miles per tank, shamefully. For this and many other reasons i'm loving my 1.8 HB design.
  22. I never test drove the 2ltr because the 1.8 is more than enough for me.
  23. Yes, it's the same. I find it very useful for this very reason.
  24. It depends on what journeys you do. Round town, motorways. Round town for me it's about 480 miles before i fill the tank up but i could do perhaps another 50 miles, possibly more. I've had my car since mid April and my longest journey has been about 60 miles. When i fill up it claims well over 600 miles.
