I think, and I'm sure someone will correct me, that in the UK if you use "e10" it invalidates the warranty.

Think you might be right there Lester, not so important on a car that only has a three year warranty I guess :P :lol: :lol:

I see they are working on a methane powered vehicle but so far it has proven a bit sh1t.  Codename is Toyolet.

Daz,

Is this how you funded your new motor?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-11105220


A man has paid for a van in China with 100,000 yuan ($14,700; £9,500) in pocket change he gathered over years, state television reports.

Mr Zhao, a businessman, dropped bundles of notes, none worth more than one yuan - about $0.15 - at the dealership in Jining, in northern Shandong province.

Extra staff had to be brought in to work shifts to count it all, a clerk at the dealership said.

And I like this bit:


After hours of counting, the staff at the dealership confirmed he had provided exact change

That is a classic Lester  :eek: I throw all my 5c pieces in my wife's jar.. I hope she doesn't go out and get a better car than me...

P.S. Got incredible finance deal through Toyota 20k at 1.64%  :eek: about A$1264 I think in fees and charges over the 4 year term.. (I can nearly earn that much a year in dividends on the shares I was going to sell  :D)

No.. got it all in writing.. They are advertising 2.9% but that is for small business buyers I think .. turned out to be even less for joe blogs (and me)

Due to the public perception that they need to be plugged in, are new technology and would drive a lot differently to a normal petrol car they are selling a bit slowly so this was a way of increasing sales without butchering the price..

I don't normally use finance but I would have been crazy not to on this occassion.. They did want to know the "ins and outs of a ducks a$$" but happy to oblige for that deal  :mrgreen:

Dazzler starts searching the internet for 1.64% finance deal on trip to the UK... :razz:

I like the idea of travelling to the UK and Italy in particular (although wife is paranoid about terrorists..) and I'm paranoid about spending money with nothing but memories in return..

In the 1800's we Brits exported prisioners to OZ, mainly Tassie and Melbourne..

Now make enquiries and see if you can take up 1 of the return places, which should be FOC, which wasn't claimed.  :lol:

It is an amazing car to drive.. Drives like a Statesman or a Calais then you look down and see you are still getting 6.4 LPH  :eek: I really like the reversing camera and the auto wipers are very clever the way they adjust to the intensity of the rain.. and the Hybrid is so Quiet and rides so well over rough surfaces..  :cool:


Doesn't have the kick in the back you get with the diesel though... :'(

Got a set of Hybrid Decals the other day.. Bit tricky to put on but happy how they look (the Window tint is darker than it looks in this photo too)



Also did a bit of a mock up of something similar for the i30.. Logo didn't come out too clear though  :'(
