  1. I have a stitched leather, quilted boot liner in black...the epitome of luxury. I bought it off the Internet and actually bought two of them, I intend to overlay my interior mats and cut out new ones from the liner...I will use the original edging from the old mats to edge the new set...a bit of work I know but when you compare the £80.00 asking price of matching mats to the cost of the liner £35.00 it’s a no brainier, for an afternoons work and I have the equipment to do the job so I might as well have a play.
  2. As it's never happened before I was reasonably sure it was a regen...quite spectacular especially for the cars stuck behind me...Ha Ha Ha !
  3. Hi everyone, I'm still here...whilst stuck in rush hour trafic in a stop start situation for 40 mins my car suddenly produced the most horrendous cloud of white smoke from the exhaust which lasted about a minute then stopped and everything was fine. No loss of power, increase in revs or anything other than the smoke...I have a 2010 facelift RAV4 D4D XTR 2.2 with just 50,000 miles on the clock. Serviced and maintained by RRG Stockport. It's happened once befor about two years ago whilst in traffic in France. Any Ideas, have I got a problem. Thanks Paul
  4. Happy Birthday 4raver!

  5. My lovely new car has a similar problem to my previous Toyotas in as much as the change up from first to second gear where it grabs/clunks/crunches/baulks a little.....Toyota say this is normal I'm not so sure...my first Rav did it as did the next two new Yaris the avensis tourer and now this one....the only two that were OK were the auris and the new Yaris 1.4 d4d. Toyota say its a trait with Toyota gearboxes and is no detriment to the unit. They usually change the oil and this helps. Oh and there is a slight difference when the gearbox is hot and cold.
  6. Fully loaded and resplendent in dark metallic blue (titan midnight) this car has a whole host to extras on top of the XTR package....I love the leather and alacantara seats, especially the drivers electric one. The CD is the six CD changer and is a cracking bit of kit...I got a great deal and new tyres as part of my package. A run today saw 48 mpg non the motorway from the very perky 2.2 D4D....help needed I can use my phone to receive calls but can't get the system to store my contacts so can't make calls. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy 4s.
  7. Hands free kit for Avensis, Auris or Yaris with correct wiring loom fitted for all three cars. Comes with a brand new paired dash or steering wheel control unit and accessory cable for iPhone, USB, jack or remote charging, microphone etc.....sold boxed ready to fit...takes less than 20 mins.this is a crackingnunit and works faultlessly. £55.00 posted pay pal only.
  8. Laser cut from chrome plastic...perfect fit as per the o.e.m item....but not steel. Fit in 5 mins, comes with adhesive strips already fitted....Bought two in error and one is for sale at £18.00 posted...pay pal only.
  9. One of each mk1 and mk2 rear number protector in black 180 micron no bubble carbon fiber ...laser cut to exact shape...easy fit just £10.00 each posted. Pay pal only.
  10. Hi I've just bought a 2010 rav with 17 inch wheels will any of them fit as I only have the repair kit not a spare and I do prefer a proper spare. If you can be bothered some pics would be of help.

    Rav 4

    Well I've only gone and bought it...2010 2.2 XTR, leather tints electric seats etc....so question is will a 17 spacesaver from an avensis fit my new rav or do I have to buy a car specific tyre as the rav only comes with the pump/foam kit.

    Rav 4

    Insurance group 26......omg! Mine is 11, what is this going to cost me a year....I pay £320 fully comp for two drivers at the moment...probably talking double. Ah well have to lose weight anyway, so that's the beer of the shopping list every month and the cake, the biscuits etc etc.

    Rav 4

    So this afternoon I am hoping to buy a 2010 2.2 D4D XTR with the new fuel efficient engine...and getting very excited at the prospect...unfortunately it means my beautiful Auris has to go, shame really as it has been fault less and returned a regular 50+ mpg. Some of you will remember my original blue Rav 4 which is still in my signature. I see this car often and it still looks good. Anyway more later.
  14. After two years of dodgy air con, low gas, no gas, Toyota gave me a new compressor and condenser and the result is I now have very cold, top notch air con and its blooming wonderful. Best of all I also got a new !Removed! lighter to boot. Thanks Toyota for extended warranties. Cost to me a big fat ZERO....
  15. What his the cost for a new socket from Toyota or can I retrofit a generic from Halfords.
