  1. means Vehicle stability control :D hope you enjoy it like as much as I do, it goes like the clangers once you got 4000miles on clock, the secret to the the clanging is not to pull away slowly lol ;)
  2. Hi spwolf, front spoiler is TTE, but side skirts are TBC dealer has an option for me I haven't seen them yet will keep you informed ;)
  3. John, I hope this is soon, I got to have it done, you had your springs done yet ? I'm hoping to have front spoiler and side skirts done soon, but not sure if i can risk non TTE springs due to warrenty issues,
  4. The current Leon cupra is the newest in the Seat/Audi/VW line up and is the car that all the above will be based on it has the latest floor pan, that the rest will use, this was in all the motoring press last september, so any changes to the Leon will only be minor face lifts, I had a Focus ST170 for under a month, brake problems wich could not be rectified (took Ford 5 mths to fix), so having already ruled out the cicvic type R (to wild in the wet, not enough toys) I paid a visit to the Seat dealer, and took a Leon Cupra for a test drive (R version was not available at the time) the turbo is good and handling was good to, build quality suprised me,(but given my 2 previous cars where new corolla,s) it did not impress me. But when you look at the spec of the Cupra R, you'd have to spend a lot of money on all the revivals to match the quality extra,s. But i couldn't wait, I got a T Sport and have never looked back, passing 6200, is fantastic, staying there trough 4 gear chages is an experience i frequetly enjoy, and the looks on the faces of BMW, Audi,VW,Alfa drivers ect, is that of "what the **** was that" lol :D :D :D I'm wait to fit lowering kit, already have 17x7's on, and also want the quick shift kit, which will help keep the revs high as i change.
  5. Hi Alydee, I'm currently awainting a phone call from Steve @ JCT (Hull) 01482 586733, he's been talking to Toyota about all of the TTE parts and should have more info today, I'll amend this post as soon as I know what's happening, Steve appears to be the only Toyota parts guy in the UK who knows about the TTE parst, and is actually willing to try and help.:D
  6. Hi Guy's Steve at JCT in Hull is aware of all the TTE stuff, but there is staill a problem with getting the parts in the uk, so far only the front spoiler is available, I've been told we should see it start to arrive in Feb, fingers crossed.:(

  9. I keep asking my dealer when they can get me the TTE kit, I have the funds ready and waiting for springs, fr.spoiler, twin exhaust, gearshift, and fr. suspension brace, thought it would be available by now some mainland euro countries all ready have it :(
  10. I read in a Jap car magazie, that there is a chip, already fitted to some TS's over there, which give as much as 225 bhp now that would be nice, if you fitted the lowering springs and some 18" wheels. :o
  11. now why would i want to tell you that ;) http://www.speedlinecorse.co.uk/ I phoned them direct and managed to get a very good deal, close to trade price in the end with some begging, I got 5 which i think helped, paid just short of £650, for the 5, normall retail would be closer to £1100. The Toyota rally team supposedly use this make :o

  16. Hi aly it's not a girly thing I can't do it either,,,have found one way of doing it but it's a little tricky,,,,,,,,you got to take left hand off wheel and extend it almost fully while moving it slightly to the left at the same time, and also extend one finger on left hand, then push button,,,all just a bit to much for me, tend to pull over to carry out this task,,,unless I have wife in with me she can even do it with her right hand........... Please take this for the good humour it was written with ;) No help I know,,if any one does find a way please let us know

  24. hi joely,, I also get the occasional drip on to the seats when the cars wet,,, I find that running my finger down the joint above the door before opening prevents the water dripping on the seat a small niggle,, that I can live with given how good every thing else is
