  1. Congrats Tom.B You had a storm trooper avatar no? ... Gen 5 celica's? you want to be thinking about moving baby stuff around and messages and stuff, something with more doors.....he he
  2. Wow, thats very lucky indeed, glad your all ok.
  3. My mates Iphone is pretty cool, he is happy to do a lot of online stuff and as the add says it has an app for almost everything. You will need to sign up to a broad band package and if you dont they wont give you one. As a number of reps said to me why do you want an Iphone if your not going to be using its internet properties. I could not answer that and got myself a Nokia 5800 Music Express. I prefer to do online stuff on my computer. Its maybe not as refined as the iphone but its fully touch screen. After a few weeks I quite like mine. Although I cant get my Navicore (TOM TOM) on to it. I am just beginning to use the playlists for listening to music on it much better than the Nokia N73 I got that, and a pack of screen protectors and a plastic wallet thingy to keep it in, although the accessories are not Nokia
  4. Dude your not giving us much to go on. Is the ST205 a celica? There is a celica sub forum search that and this section for general faults relating to the st 205 when was the lat time this car was serviced, is it running smooth? has the petrol consumption changed? It could be a number of things, including throttle positioning sensor, camshaft sensor, air flow meter, lambda sensor. It could also be a broken air ducting hose or leek on the inlet air system ? Have a search on the forum for past topics, what have you done to check things? , if you dont know where to start then simply take the car to a diagnostics centre and ask for a diagnostic test, or find someone with a fault code reader.
  5. Thats me never forget a car....But yes I can remember that name with a black gen 7. My cars have gone totally weird a Merc C180 auto and an Nissan Elgrand......now thats a crazy vehicle but the wife picked it and is over the moon with it. The cars are fine but in terms of driving they dont really spark or ...I dont know what to say really.....blandish?
  6. Yeah Hi I remember you, you had a red Gen 6 no? I have also parted with my gen 6 too and now have some very weird vehicles Now the MR2, they are a stunning little motor always wanted a turbo version, your looks nice, very clean hope you enjoy it :D
  7. Ahh your right there. I forgot about that. I also tried to join that forum Donkeys ago, gave up and put it to the back of my mind.....obviously Quite winging, and make use of it while it lasts! ;) lol..... There was a number of the ah topics on said forum that had a read count....so some one is making use of the links. Hope they got their AV up to date
  8. I know a lot of members here are members of other forums I am too. Recently having bought a Nissan Elgrand I tried to join a couple of the associated forums. Which from other forums I am a member of its simple enough....no? I have tried several times registering with the elgrand forum and while I get an acknowledgment I never get an activation or other contact from the forum, this is over a month now and nothing from them The really weird one is the nissan owners main forum. I was looking to join that as I had no luck with the elgrand forum but every time I check the forum the boards are full of topics covering various medical supplies, callis viagra etc. Its obvious they have had their system overrun with spam. I sent them a message and on checking tonight the medical subjects have all gone and been replaced with various options for !Removed!. I dont know about the membership levels and how these forums are moderated etc but honestly its mental. There would be no point in joining such a forum. I hope they get things sorted out there. In the several years I have been a member here I have never seen anything like this on TOC. Thats years of doing a very good job, well done chaps
  9. I did 1300 miles looking for and getting a new vehicle for my wife. I will do another 450 miles tomorrow on a round trip to pick it up.
  10. Did you get the info you needed? Google" Wikepedia" and go to the site, look up toyota hiace, there is loads of information there and a number of external links to more specifications etc if you dont get it from Wiki. HTH
  11. You said it, im finding the same with a MPV that I am looking for..........Ive just done 1200 miles looking at different vehicles and cant get the one I really want
  12. Ive seen some of those programmes too and the camera makes a difference for any police officer getting recorded. What I really dont get is why they have to put up with so much crap and abuse from the scallywag's they catch. Some of them seriously need a bat in the mouth.
  13. Thanks for that, they certainly look the part, some nice cars in the workshop garage.
  14. I was wondering if anyone could comment on this Jap Specialist in Warrington called Car Planet Ltd. Their premises look good and there is a lot of cars there. They do a lot of electrical and diagnostic work as well as sell imports. I was wondering if anyone had any dealings with them and could make any comment on them? I was looking to get an MPV from them. They do a warranty but I am old enough to have had warranties in the past that are not worth much. I am not sure with this chap giving me a warranty I would have to return the car back there for any warranty issues. Martin
  15. Hey Jimlad hows you doing. Interesting new job then? Hope it goes well
