  1. After some bars for our MY20 Swace (Corolla TS). Would prefer the 'Wingbar Evo' style rather than 'Edgebar'. Either to collect in Sussex/Surrey area or post at sensible cost. Would also consider parts thereof if any spares around: footpack (710600), fitting kit (186080), bars (108). Cheers!
  2. Be interesting to see if or how quickly Suzuki pick up the new TS for the Swace.
  3. Fitted the Climair deflectors on Friday. Left them over the weekend before opening windows and the anti-trap hasn't kicked in yet so seems that was long enough. Did find the branding to be excessive (including URL and UK distributer's phone number) so removed with ispropanol, soft paper rag and the thin edge of the supplied installation tool. They look more low-key now so happy with the result. And not noticed any appreciable change in fuel economy either so I guess that's a result.
  4. Thanks for all the suggestions. Went with the Automotiva bumper protector for £43.00 from ebay. Wanted (some) protection from dents as well as scuffs/scratches so seemed the best option. Fits well, seems durable enough - already had stuff dragged across it without harm - gives good coverage and has a centre-mark to help line it up. Outrageously expensive for a single piece of plastic and double-sided tape but still cheaper than most other options. Still looking at sill protectors. Got loads of helitape in the workshop but as with the bumper I want ding protection too so would prefer something more rigid. Most sill plates seem more decorative than practical though so not sure where else to look. Maybe a combination of tape and plates.
  5. In the process of life/family-proofing our Swace (1.8 TS). I fitted Toyota mudguards yesterday and now keen to get some protection on the rear bumper and other areas like sills, door edges etc. Any recommendations for reasonable quality (preferably not too hideous) and sensibly priced options? So far I've found these two bumper protectors: https://rgmautomotive.co.uk/product/rgm-abs-rearguard-rbp344-corolla-touring-sports-trek-4-2019/ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223885591179?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180105095853%26meid%3D85df468e62b14869a59bf0aa44d8d414%26pid%3D100903%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D20%26sd%3D374220037743%26itm%3D223885591179%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2510209&_trksid=p2510209.c100903.m5276
  6. Had a Blackvue DR900X Plus 2ch installed in our 2020 Swace and no issues so far. I was told the key is to set the low-voltage cutoff high enough to avoid battery issues or the car getting unhappy. Cutoff is set to 12.5v on ours and seems to be giving around 3 hours time lapse recording in parking mode before shutting down so while that's enough for most supermarket carparks I'll probably fit a dedicated battery pack to cover longer periods, i.e. overnight or when parked on-street.
  7. Keen to know how reliable/stable these are. Is the connection fast enough for full functionality (not too laggy) and does it hold the connection or do you get drop-outs?
  8. Got the same issue with front passenger window on our Swace. Will contact the dealer as it's quite annoying
  9. Haven't ordered yet but will be from climairuk.com. And yes, the 'Toyota Corolla 5 door estate 2019 on' versions will fit the Swace
  10. Thanks folks. I'll get on with it and order them. Will let you know if the mpg falls off a cliff
  11. I did search for threads/comments about this (honest) but nothing relevant came up beyond relative merits of Climair vs Heko vs OEM. While I’m not sold on the aesthetics, I spend enough time sat in the car waiting for people/things to think that wind deflectors might be genuinely useful. I’d probably go with Climair front & rear but can’t find anything definitive about the real-world impact on fuel economy. Has anyone fitted the Climairs to a TS (or HB) and could you comment on what impact they’ve had on fuel economy either way? Cheers
  12. On the subject of ride quality with smaller rims, picked up our Swace SZ5 yesterday and the difference between it and the MY19 TS Design we sent back is night and day. Glides over the crappy roads round here so really glad we’ve got the 16” wheels. It’s wearing Continental Eco Contact 6 at present and while they seem fine in the dry (and significantly quieter than the Falkens on the reject) I’m keen to see how they do in the wet and during winter. Looking good with 12k miles on though and had the dealer rotate front-rear before collection so no idea when we’ll get to try something different
  13. May have been a bit hasty on this and accept that something odd may have happened to cause the upgrade to fail, however, considered against the dealer's conduct in every other regard, nothing would surprise me. Thanks again for advice. Just need to find find another car and swallow the lost time on this one.
  14. By way of an update: thanks very much for the advice on this one. It clearly hasn't been done and subsequent calls with the dealer and their general attitude post-sale suggests that they're simply lying to us about it. That said, they've also refused to address the lengthy list of defects and have opted instead to take the car back. The list of issues includes loud rotational rumble from rear axle, CC that doesn't get cold and stinks of bacterial/fungal contamination, badly damaged front splitter, countless chips and deep scratches, damaged CC facia trim, missing wheel-well insert, faulty passenger light switch and a liberal splattering of tar, tree sap and other contaminants. Buyer beware and all that, and don't buy a car you've not seen... even an 'approved' one.
  15. Given the extent of the service campaign I'd have thought they'd be well practiced?
