    Strange Aircon noises...

    My car is 6 years old and started doing this in May. Sounds like a sort of grinding noise that changes pitch. Breathing sounds a great description! When I hear it next time I will fiddle with the aircon switch and see if it changes anything. Useful thread this!!

    Good news

    We have a hybrid C-HR with 1.8 engine, and have tested the 2.0 hybrid in the Corolla recently. Toyota have certainly moved the tech on in 3 years from the version we have in the C-HR. Power delivery is much smoother and comes in sooner, making the hybrid Corolla a very sporty machine! If they can adapt the GT86 onto their TNGA platform I imagine a hybrid version could be much fun. The weight of the batteries though!

    Agree about power delivery being harmonious with how the car was developed. If I can refrain from dumping the right foot, the car drives just as it did when N/A, and you can go for a moderate tootle and the car still feels right at home. If you want to travel at a fair old lick then it does that as well, like it was engineered to cope easily with the extra power and the more gentle delivery that the S/C provides. Two cars in one. Charger is very useful on the motorway and I feel a lot safer carrying out certain manoeuvres with the S/C back up.

    I had a similar experience on a forum regarding "should have gone turbo" as if I didn't know what I was doing. Having explained that I had experience of TD04, VF34, Garrett etc through 13 years with turbo'ed Subarus, and just wanted something different, and that I liked the word "supercharged", and had never had one, and wanted a different sort of power delivery for a change; they still thought generally I was off my head. That will teach me for not running with the herd. The term "each to his own" was not understood either.

    Interested in this. Presumably Denbies would allocate us some hard standing parking, rather than in the adjacent field where Pistonheads parked us?

    Bringing an 86 back from the dead

    Wow Sam! Good luck Mate! Can't wait to see the Bunny fitted (for this year). You cost me some new rear lights so far, so don't go too mad!! 😉

    Indeed Nick. Two big engines. Grandchildren love the drama, and how large the driving wheels are! My kids can still name all the Thomas the Tank Engines from back in the day!

    Well, after all that I have a clash! My daughter has bought tickets for us to take the grandchildren to the Giants of Steam weekend at the Bluebell railway. The tickets are for sunday, so a separate visit to Brooklands will be necessary for me. Thanks for organising, Vadim.

    There is no wrong and right with personal choice. Happiness with the end result is more important. You will love your car even more!! Not too long to wait either!! Enjoy!!

    Same response, or lack of it, that I had last year!

    Are we having a club display Vadim? Do we buy tickets as individuals and hope they park us together? Have I missed this information somewhere? 😉
