  1. If the car is fitted with DRL and auto lights and you disable them would this not cause issues with any insurance claims as a safety device has been disabled .
  2. I have optiwhite in the Auris and Elta in the Yaris . The Elta seem to give a better light then the optiwhite and are a lot cheaper
  3. I used a Toyota approved service centre Geraint Hill in Aberdare for the first time for this service on the auris . Normally use the main dealer near work to me FRF Bridgend who are very good , but due to illness this was not a option to travel that far . To be fair car was in and out in 90 mins all very efficient and friendly
  4. This from the Brochure on The Toyota website Which shows height adjustable front seats , but want to be 100 % certain before we place a order. We have been told we would be looking at a mid March 2022 delivery
  5. Had a test drive today in a Yaris Cross but it was a Excel model . Has anyone taken delivery of a Icon model and would you be able to post some interior shots as the ones on the Toyota Website don't really show much of the interior . Also does the passenger seat have height adjustment . I have seen two reports that conflict on this Thanks Steve
  6. Very disappointed to see that Halfords have increased the excluded items on the new discount cards Certain exclusions apply to Motoring including Dash Cams, Sat Navs and Audio Certain exclusions apply to Cycling including Tech, Electric Cycles and Scooters Is this a recent change as I cant remember reading it when I received the new card
  7. Thanks for this . I just wish I had held off then as mine was serviced 10 days ago
  8. Mike Thanks . I had seen the post and is in line with what the dealer told me the beginning of the month when I was booking the car in for the service . I hope that Toyota do something for owners with cars over 5 years old for servicing . Toyota already have a industry leading warranty for 5 years so would not expect them to be able increase it further Steve
  9. I was disappointed read ''annoyed '' to find that 5+ had ended with no replacement announced . I had to pay £300 plus a extra 10 pounds for the insurance on the loan car this week. I will add that I always do have very good service off FRF Bridgend so do not blame them in any way. Apparently there is something coming out for owners on June the 1st but no one is able to confirm this. We signed up both our Yaris and Auris to the 5+ scheme last year but never got to use the scheme, so unless the new scheme ''if there is one'' has a similar price model I will be paying at least a extra £200+ a year on servicing. I do more than 10,000 a year . I will be considering taking the Auris ( diesel ) to a good local Toyota independent garage for servicing next time as it is also now out of warranty, so where is Toyota business model to keep older cars in the dealer network .
  10. Worth a look PCD Toyota wheels -Wheelfitment.eu | PCD, Offset, Center Bore, mounting and tire size data
  11. I was told by my local dealer that the 5+ had now ended when I tried to book by 2015 Yaris in a few weeks ago
  12. Joe I think as Bob said they have been previously refurbished and damp has got under the lacquer . They look worse by the day
  13. Thanks Will considering that as I am no too worried on keeping the mirror finish It just so annoying they have gone bad . The alloy wheels on my 17 year old Panda 4X4 look in better shape Bob they looked really good when I bought the car nearly 2years ago but quickly started to go white in places
  14. I have 2 alloys on my 2015 Hybrid which are breaking down really badly due chipping, curb rash before I had the car and causing damp under the mirror surface. Has anyone had these refurbed or could should I consider buying 4 alloy wheels off a mk 3 Yaris that were not the mirror finish . How would I be able to sort the TMPS if I went down this route would the garage be able to swop the valves from the old wheels without having to recode ?
  15. I have Optiwhites in my Auris and Elta in the Yaris . Not sure if the headlight itself is making the difference but I find the light output of the Elta bulb is better than the optiwhite and they are cheaper as well
  16. My son drove my Hybrid this week for the first time , his daily is a sports Seats Leon . He commented that he found the Yaris was very light and followed groves in the road so maybe I have just got used to the it over time
  17. I have a 2015 Yaris Hybrid and I find it very stable . Have you checked your tyre pressures I have mine set to 33 front and 32 rear or possibly have a damaged tyre that can not be seen as on the inside wall
  18. I have used Toyota direct parts quite a few times and the service has been first class
  19. I have recently added DAB to my 2015 Yaris ICON I used this aerial Imwell DAB Aerial Car Radio Signal Amplifier GSM Patch: AmazonSmile: Electronics which I have stuck to the top of the windscreen to left of the mirror ( looking from the inside ) but had to use a adapter from this pack in the pack of the radio Bingfu DAB Car Aerial Adapter SMB Female to Male: AmazonSmile: Electronics A fairly easy job , took less than a hour and that included swopping the Sat Nav module of the old radio on to the new one with DAB
  20. I would just suggest the the pipe on the wiper arm has frozen and maybe caused a pipe to split or a joint pulled loose
  21. I have fitted the DAB radio I purchased and attached the Satnav off my other unit . I used a aftermarket Aerial Imwell DAB Aerial Car Radio Signal Amplifier GSM Patch: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics and used a adapter as the one on the aerial was not deep enough Bingfu DAB Car Aerial Adapter SMB Female to Male: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics all works really well thanks for your help
  22. Bob Thanks for the advice I think a aftermarket one will be the easier to fit .
  23. My 2015 Icon Hybrid has the Sat nav module fitted . This radio does not have Dab . I have purchased a Hybrid Radio with DAB from a 2016 but no Satnav , What is needed to swop the SAT Nav module between the radios and will my Hybrid have the aerial fitted for the DAB Radio ? TIA for any advice Steve
  24. I am getting 58mpg at the moment dropped from about 65mpg in the warmer weather
