    Depressingly basic touch and go?

    The head unit has very little to do with car settings. Better of getting a Carista OBD dongle and their app which allows you to tweak all manner of things. You get a 1 month free trial of the app with the dongle which should be enough time to set things to your liking

    Alignment in Poole/Bournemouth area

    Thanks both, I’ll probably take into Mike Stokes in the interim and then arrange a trip up to Abbey later in the year for some more sophisticated fettling.

    Alignment in Poole/Bournemouth area

    Have a road trip planned for end of the month and was hoping to find time to get up to Abbey Motorsport to check alignment following lowering of car. Sadly, work is crazy right now and weekends are spoken for. As such anyone know of a place I could get alignment done in Bournemouth/Poole area?

    Improving DAB reception (AutoDAB)

    Hmm, that’s got me thinking, would a 2017MY aerial have the same effect, as DAB is available as standard. As such the stock aerial should have a DAB output and in theory be better than the aftermarket stick on one. Anyone have any idea whether this hypothesis is in any way correct or if I’m talking out of my...

    Lowering springs?

    H&R Springs on mine (supplied by Tuning Developments: http://www.tuningdevelopments.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=502_625_629&products_id=2388). Likewise very pleased with how close to OEM they feel, no additional harshness at all.

    Improving DAB reception (AutoDAB)

    So, I have the, supposedly official, AutoDAB unit in my car. When it’s locked on, to Radio 6 99% of the time, it’s generally fine (once I rerouted dashcam cabling to avoid interference). However, it has a habit of going hunting for stations when you get into a black spot area (e.g. a multi-storey car park) and in doing so takes me ages to scroll back through the 50 or so channels to get back to R6M. i don’t want to replace the HU so I’m wondering whether there are any other options, e.g. replacing the 'stick on' aerial or replacing the AutoDAB unit altogether. Any thoughts/advice welcome.

    Toyota software

    Apparently Carista can now do TPMS. Dongle is about £15, subscription about £30 a year. Have the dongle but not the subscription - nor 2 sets of TPMS valves for that matter ;-)

    Would like to hear the TD exhaust

    I have TD resonated, std everything else. I’m in Dorset but will be at Goodwood next Sunday (weather permitting) if you’re interested.
