  1. Hi. I have a 2.0 D4d Avensis (2007) and the dealer has just contacted me to tell me he wants to do a software upgrade on the ECU. The reason for this is apparently that there is the possibility of the enging management warning light coming on erroneously and the software upgrade will fix this problem. My warning light has never come on. Having checked another forum I have read avout an Avensis 2.2 D4d owner who had the upgrade done, following which the car always started very roughly and gave much poorer mpg. Once done the upgrade cannot be undone according to the dealer. Has anyong out there had the upgrade and what do they think? The dealer says I sould have it done and tells me he has heard nothing negative from other owners who have had it. One RAV 4 owner has apprenetly told him it increased the mpg. THe dealer also says I will not be able to have any waranty work done unless I have the upgrade done. Any advice gratefully received.
  2. Hi I have a 2007 Avensis D4d and I'm dissapointed by the quality of the headlights. I've read in the forum about fitting HID headlamp bulbs and am wondering how easy they are to fit. Kits are available on Ebay. Is much wiring needed, and also is there room behind the headlamp unit on the Avensis for what seems like some extra equipment? I presume they are just fitted to the main beam lights, or are 2 sets required one for dip and one for main beam? Also I've been trying to figure out how to ajust the beam angle but can't figure it out so any advice would be welcome. The dealer says they are set correctly but I think they are too low. THey are cetainly well lower than my wife's peugeot which passes its MOT every year and doesn't dazzle anyone. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks
  3. Hi I'm new to the forum. I've just ordered a new Avensis D4D in Silver Fern and can't wait till I get it on about 19th April. Just wondering about one thing. My last car (Citroen) only had ! remote key and a spare with no remote function. Does the Avensis come with 2 'proper' keys?
  4. Hi Thanks for that. I think they're pretty similar and the dealer was vague so I thought I'd ask. Not sure about a used T3x, the T2 has all the toys I need, and I'm struggling to find a facelifted T3 for the price of a new Colour collection.
  5. Hi I'm new to this forum and am about to buy a new Avensis D4D. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between the Colour Collection and the T2 models. As far as I can tell the only difference is the price, about £1000. If that is the case why does anyone buy a T2? Thanks.
