  1. Yes, I wish we had the Mercedes "Return to main dealer" quick access button
  2. Are available on ebay, not sure how long they've been out but they are around £40 for full European maps.
  3. If you take off the cover under the bonnet above the grill can access from the top quite easily.
  4. You can turn them off - either to expert level (still there in the background) or totally off.
  5. They are same as GSF and Aluminium Alloy. I did see a journalist describe them as plastic. https://parts.keyeslexus.com/oem-parts/lexus-paddle-switch-8461024020
  6. A new problem has come to light. If you have a tracker, the company won't tell you where the car is as it breaches the thieves GDPR data rights, namely 'location data'. Have to laugh. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  7. Techstream is Toyotas own software. The only wag you can use it outside the network is with a hacked copy. We arn't allowed to share links or talk about it here. Tbh, it can be a pain. For this one thing you may as well just ask dealer to do it. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  8. Yes its at 2000 revs. 60 70 is fine but 80 90 is a bit noisy. In top. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  9. I want to know what he was driving. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  10. I think one of first pics I posted here was rcf with a 718. This weekend went for blast with the older n/a caymen. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  11. Good rant that - I enjoyed it :D Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  12. No worries was tongue in cheek complaint. :) Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  13. That sounds like one of the worst features award contenders. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  14. I never said that. Mis-quote. How did that happen? Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  15. Yabbadabba doo Thanks for the honest write up. Hard to argue anything there, all seems very objective ( other than looks ). I hope the gsf is being well looked after and one day rides again. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  16. Good luck. Why the swap? Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  17. Main reason for crossplane is to balance the inertial forces. It sounds rougher but is smoother - flat plan is rougher but sounds smoother.
  18. Crossplane V8 (like RCF) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iw4rqQD479o Flatplane V8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJrpmY6AITE
  19. I recorded this in my aygo a gogo at 16:30 today Last year I got 37 Not this hot since 1911, 23, 32, 57 & 76 Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  20. I understand 5% ethanol is a legal requirement in 95 ron and currently in SUL a choice left to manufacturers.
  21. OOps - I linked the wrong one - I had previously found a UK statement last year.
  22. With metal parts what happens is because motorbikes are often used infrequently - the Ethanol pulls in water - you can if you desire separate Ethanol from petrol by adding water then draining off the petrol from the bottom. So for bikes with steel tanks it is the water that rots the tank. This can happen anyway without Ethanol so it's hard to say if it's worse or not in steel tanks. With Nylon based tanks they tend to swell and distort due to ethanol being left in over winter. Clearly modern car tanks are designed to accept it. Ethanol does seem to swell and harden a lot of rubber tubes and seals on vehicles of an older vintage, I have seen fuel hose that snaps like brittle plastic. Clearly modern vehicles will have different rubber to resist it. As far as I am aware - the only Super Unleaded available without ethanol is BP Ultimate. I emailed all the major players and they all replied that Ethanol was present in super but not necessarily 5%. Only BP state it isn't. https://www.bp.com/content/dam/bp-country/en_au/media/fuel-news/fuel-octane-power.pdf
  23. Does it have a locking torque converter? Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
  24. Standard bolts torque down onto the mating pipe. No way to fit a nut. I used aerotight nuts which are split and twisted to give a heat proof lock. Sent from my BV5800 using Tapatalk
