  1. Did Torquay to London today.... Cruise set at 75mph in the motorway, by the time I got to Hammersmith it was 63.3 and 66mph, the track through London dented it a bit, but still I’m impressed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. When you get it can you post up some pics and give some feedback on the item. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. What year is yours? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. If I am doing a long journey then it’s handy, I’ll load up my journey from my Lexus and be on my way. If I’m local and I just want to see the destination then it’s not as good as google maps etc. And I find it slow to load and clunky to navigate. My wife has a 2009 bmw and that nav is much smoother and user friendly. Most of the time my nav is not in the screen Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Mine sits here Magnet on the back of my 6s iPhone and it sits there lovely, plus the charging lead is pretty much hidden Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have the workshop manual for stripping a front bumper as well, hope that helps FRONT BUMPER Disassembly.docx
  7. have a look at this......... FRONT BUMPER removal.docx
  8. This was a common issue with the Gen3 Prius, the pad retaining clips would lose their spring tension over time and move in the calliper. not dangerous, just irritating. When you have your pads done just change the retaining clips, that should stop it
  9. My 2014 300h has now covered 107000 miles, 50k of that in the last 13 months. At 80k I would say you shouldn’t be encountering any issues, the drive should be nice and smooth, no bangs or clonks and the interior should still be looking very fresh. Generally the bodywork should be in very good condition, however expect the front bumper to have taken a battering, mine looks pebble dashed and has done from about 60k. As far as longevity is concerned I would say don’t worry. I have seen Toyota hybrids with over 300k on them and they are still running all their original major components, my oldest Prius is now 15 years old with 330000 miles on it and is still on its original hybrid battery. Given that the technology for the 300h has come from the Prius I think that’s a pretty good benchmark. By this time next year I expect mine to be at about 160,000/170,000 miles and by then I would have replaced the shock absorbers and changed the transmission fluid and all the antifreezes as well as a couple of diff oil changes as well, however my expectations are that it will still be giving me late 40’s to the gallon and still pull like a train.

  10. This is after about 50 miles on A roads. The day previous I had cleaned out the hybrid battery fan and gauze filter
  11. it would have been easier to service if it was an easier accessible item. With a bit more engineering it would have been possible to build that into the vent panel and make it more removable.
  12. No, that looks pretty clean, but don't forget the gauze filter in the trunking
  13. Here’s mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Ive got the same one Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. My mpg dropped by about 10mpg and I noticed that the hybrid battery was discharging quicker. I average 40/50,000 miles a year, most of that is town driving as well. After 2.5 years it might be worth having a look, if nothing else you get peace of mind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
