  1. No vehicle manufacturer will make their own engine oils - they will contract with one or more oil companies to supply oils to their spec, much in the same way as any other component.
  2. I replaced the headlight bulbs in our Aygo with Toyota Optiwhites (made by Philips) about three years or so ago and found they were a worthwhile improvement. They are expensive. PIAA and Elta are cheaper, and there may now be other makes available. Just be wary of the performance claims on upgrade bulbs. Standard HIR2 bulbs are supposed to be around 70% brighter than non HIR2 bulbs, and some claims for the upgrade bulbs are against non HIR2 bulbs. Also the brighter the bulb, the shorter the life. Easy to change on the second generation Aygo.
  3. Department of Transport has confirmed that E10 unleaded petrol will be introduced in the UK from September 2021. Super unleaded will continue to be E5. Toyota Europe information on which cars cannot use E10 is as follows: Toyota; Avensis 2,0 L made between July 2000 and October 2008; Avensis 2,4 L made between June 2003 and October 2008. Lexus; IS250 2,5 L V6 made between August 2005 and September 2007; GS300 3,0 L V6 made between January 2005 and September 2007; LS460 4,6 L V8 made between August 2006 and September 2007. All vehicles mentioned above that are not comp
  4. Hello Chris - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  5. Hello David - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  6. Merged with previous topic and moved to the Rav4 club.
  7. Toyota Owners Club is UK based. Presumably you are in the US, as the UK didn't have the Corolla between 2007 and 2019, and UK trim levels are different (we don't have L, LE, etc) so it may be difficult to advise.
  8. Where a post shows !Removed! the word has been removed automatically by the site's profanity filter. Moderators will keep an eye on the topic/member for further transgressions and may take appropriate action.
  9. Hello Bill - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  10. Hello Martin - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  11. Moved to the Corolla club. Does the dealer do new car preparation at a different site to the showroom? At the end of the day, some minimal mileage is usually on new cars when customers take delivery - movement around the distribution centre, around the dealer's premises, loading on and off transporters, etc, etc. I've had 21 new cars and every one has had a handful of miles recorded.
  12. See the following on standard and enhanced cabin filters - https://www.toyota-europe.com/service-and-accessories/genuine-parts/cabin-air-filter-new Enhanced filters may be more beneficial for asthma sufferers, etc.
  13. Its all down to personal preference - some have stayed with the standard bulbs, some have upgraded.
  14. The second generation Aygo uses HIR2 single filament headlight bulbs for both main and dipped beam. There are upgrade halogen bulbs available, but most will have a shorter life - eg Toyota Optiwhites, PIAA, Elta, etc.
  15. 0W-20 oil is for Feb 2009 Aygos onwards which had the Optimal Drive improvements. Cars built before Feb 2009 have 5W-30 as the preferred oil.
  16. Unless one already subscribes, the main issue is that to read the full Times article one has to sign up to a one month free trial as a subscriber.
  17. The Toyota 1.0 litre engine used in the Aygo has a timing chain rather than belt.
  18. From your profile, don't you mean C1. The grill is there, in conjunction with the side vents, to provide a flow of air into the cabin, and may also assist with demisting the windscreen. Neither Toyota nor Stellantis provide an infill to block an air vent. Covering it will reduce the air flow into the cabin, and may also adversely affect demisting.
  19. See attached. Auris Touring Sport_PZ483-E5120-00_Dog Guard + Divider_AIM_002_854_1.pdf
