    Now going up for sale
  3. I'm going to park it up with sign in after its MOT on the 19/04/14. £5,000 or offers
  4. You know I love the car. I bought it new because I planned to keep it, so I put a lot of time and money into it and looked after it. Its just that 99% of my driving is motorway from Monday to Friday and I just feel I need some thing a little bigger. We have an old Audi A3 tdi also (my wifes) and I'm thinking of getting one for my self. I think I need a change that's all.
  5. Once mine has had its MOT on the 19th of April its going up for sale

    Hi Bob, happy days. I bought my car from new and plan to run it for as long as I can that's why I look after it and treat it well. I have treated many cars over the years with ZX1 and swear by it, after all F1 teams use it so it must be good.
  7. I've just ordered a TANNABE Strut Brace from J-Spec Performance. Looking forward to fitting it when it arrives as I have fitted many of these and find that they work really well. I may then consider the Sway bar but I don't want to keep adding more weight to the car if I can help it.

    Hi Bob, good news. Not sure how much you paid for your ZX1 Oil Treatment but I get mine for £15 for 250ml off EBay and i believe its good for 30,000 miles. I treat my IQ2 every 12 months (12,500) miles and put the rest in my Audi (3,000) miles. I also add Redex injection cleaner every 6 months and at the same time add Cataclean I average 68mpg

    I think its the fact that the IQ is so little and only has a 3 cylinder engine makes it feel or seam fragile. I have and always will have it serviced at Toyota and will keep adding the ZX1, injection cleaner and cataclean.

    Clean Egr Iq2

    Hi, I have cleaned many MAF Sensors in the past on VW, Seat and Audi etc with alot of success and replaced EGR Valves with bypass once with alot of success also. If you think that you are having a problem with yours then I think that you should take it to a dealer as I had mine replaced under warranty because the early ones fitted to the iq2 were faulty.
  11. Hi, any help appreciated. I want to remove the roof lining so that I can wrap the roof with Carbon Fiber to match my bonnet and then replace the aerial with an amplified shark fin aerial. I just want any tips before I start. Thanks for any help

    Just completed 54,000 miles in my 59 plate IQ2 Manual that I purchased from new. Still on the original discs, pads and exhaust etc.
  13. Hi, I think it was me. I fed a flexie pipe from under the front of the car to the original air filter box where I had fitted a Blitz panel filter.
  14. Mine is a manual and it pulls alot better from standing with a little more torque.
  15. Hi David, I did feed my cold air feed under the bumper at first but with the car being lowered by 35mm all round I was bit concerned about getting water in or even getting it clogged up with snow and ice.
  16. Their was no better way of getting a good cold air feed to the filter.

    Hi Pritesh, Sorry its taken so long to get back to you, I havent been on here for ages. I lost a little ride quality going to 17" wheels and tyres but its still a good ride with the IQ suspension being quite soft. I have lowered the car since by 35mm all around and I was very suprised that still the ride is very good but the handling is transformed its like a gocart now. The exhaust is just a stainless Steel tail pipe.
  23. Hi Barry, I went for the 9006 bulb fitment for the Hid kit, please type in 9006 Hid kit on Ebay you will find plenty on their, I payed around £30.00 for the complete kit all ballasts fittings etc. and they havent given me any problems in nearly 12 months. Well worth money and time, the difference in vision and safety is a must have for the IQ I think? Replacement bulbs are less than £10.00 delivered. The DRL's fit quite easily, but you do have to do some cutting to the slats at the bottom of the grill to make them fit. Wiring is a piece of cake, they DRL's come on with the ignition and go off as soon as you put your lights on, everything happens automatically.
  24. I have the standard exhaust at the moment but will be having a stainless steel vortex exhaust system fitted next month. I am wrapping the exhaust to keep the under bonnet temperatures down to help with the cool air being sucked into the air filter. .
  25. I will post some pictures and a Youtube link of the install when I get back from my Holidays, I have fitted a stainless steel heat shield and 3 cold air feeds. When I get back from my Hols I am going to borrow my mates pit and wrap the exhaust with Titanium Exhaust wrap and stainless steel ties purchased from ebay the other week, I will be doing the same to my Audi that has a Pipercross induction kit (and much quieter than the K&N) and a cold air feed.
