  1. Hey there Andrew, Just wondering whether you resolved your missing remote issue? I'm currently in the same boat! Cheers.
  2. Happy Birthday derekyau!

  3. F-Sport = no smart entry. In return though, the wing mirrors do auto-fold in when you lock it via the remote fob :outforcount:
  4. I think that you must have non-standard parking sensors fitted. If they are fully integrated into the car, there will be a button to the right of the steering wheel; below the wing mirror adjustors to turn them on/off, which also link in to a green dashboard light/associated beep when you turn it on/off. Distance adjustment for the sensors (if they are official) have only 2 settings anyway. If you have the Sat Nav option, it is set via the Navi menu system. Not too sure about if you don't have nav... So, name that dealer!
  5. Hello all! Not been on these forums for a few years now. What's been going on? Any London-ish meets on the horizon? Any oldies still around? Who runs things around here now? :winky: Not been in the car scene for a while, but am back now with a nice grey ct200h F-Sport with all the trimmings. Anyone with any Qs about the car feel free to fire them my way. For those that don't know me, I work at the Toyota HQ in Burgh Heath. Often getting sittings and the like of new models kicking around at work B) Will get some pics posted up when I get some time! But hope everyone is well ^_^
  6. Yeah - I uploaded there directly from my N95 at first... then realised I couldn't link to them directly from the Forum image tags. Pics of the New Avensis on FlickR as well, and the iQ.
  7. Interesting theory. Need to get someone standing outside to verify/observe.
  8. Hey, Yeah, it was a tad cold yesterday. Was going to go take some "proper" pictures at lunch, but it had gone by then Need to find the lady who had the keys again! Pictures and video from UK - the car was left hand drive. No idea which country it was from (didn't try to find out tbh). Dont recognise that number plate's country of origin either. The car was most certainly filthy on the outside (inside was fine though!). Lady said it was for dealers who were interested and wanted to see the car or something like that. Rear passenger leg room - very similar to current saloon tbh. There isn't a middle fold down arm rest. erm... To be honest though, when I first walked towards the car, the rear of it from a distance reminded me a lot of the Peugeot 206CC, and then a bit of the SLK convertible Argh, wish I took the pictures now. D'oh. D.
  9. I have been caught off guard (and worried at first!) when I started to hear some strange knocking/rubbing noise (cant really tell fully when in the car with the stereo on). I've had 3 current generation GS, and its only really happened maybe 5% of the time for me - reversing on full lock. I'll have another play tonight and see if I can re-create it on demand... D.
  10. Hi all, Not been on the forums for ages! Hope everyone is well? Many new members? They had the IS250C at work today, and managed to get the keys to have a brief play. Thought I'd show you and comment on it for what its worth! Only had my N95 for some quick photos and a video of the hood in action. And pictures (taken by a work colleague - so not my fault if you think they're crap!) The car itself looks nice with the very light grey interiour - almost looks white. Some things I noticed: Sat nav graphics look "nicer" with more colours and maybe even higher resolution Not all the electric windows are "auto" as per the saloons (yes - there are 4 windows still in the car) Front cockpit interior much the same The electronic graphic display in the dials has a graphic animation and progress bar of the roof open/close You have to hold the roof open/close button for the duration of the "transformation" There is a (small) boot! The wing mirrors now automatically close, and open when you lock/unlock the car on the keyfob This one was an automatic Its a 2 door (obviously) - with both electric buttons and a manual lever to fold the front seats forwards to let passengers into the rear Same twin exhausts as the current IS250 Really nice 18" alloys Sorry for the lack of high quality pics - car was parked in an awkward parking space, and I was still quite excited to care about what photos my colleague took! Promise to get some more decent photos next time I get the chance. The lady who gave me the keys was under strict instruction not to let anyone drive it away! So no comments on how it drives. D.
  11. Sincere condolences Tony. Its frustrating that its a ticking time bomb, with no way to stop it. 65 is quite a young age to go. Wish you and your family and those around you the best to get through this sad event.
  12. Yeah, nice one Niraj. He's gonna charge for his photography services one day! Was a good turnout. I'm guessing if no one on LOC knew about it/arranged anything, then there would have been just that 1 LS400 and GS300 there by themselves... I guess Ace Cafe expected someone to be keeping an eye on their diary... D.
  13. Hmmm... That would be very useful... The GS auto-locks about 15mph + But definately does not auto-unlock when its put in P... But anyway, I think the dealers can disable if that's what you want (I like it... makes the car feel more like a taxi safer/secure and more advance/automated).
  14. Not been to a meet in ages... i'll try come along after work... Hopefully the rush hour traffic wont put me in too much of a bad mood! :tsktsk:
