  1. £30 plus £5 delivery unless you can collect locally.
  2. I use BP 97 which seems ok. I may switch to 99RON as I do less miles now, and see if it makes any difference. Avoid 95 though, feels like it does the car no good at all.

    Valve failure 2014 GT86

    Might be worth phoning the dealer.. my car is a 2014 63 plate but it was eligible for the recall as I guess it was built in that time.

    Why do Toyota use DOT 3 brake fluid?

    I’ve tended to use 5.1 in the past on track and always been fine, I feel that the expensive fluids are a band aid for inadequate brakes/cooling.
  5. Noticed on the cap, it said DOT 3 only. I assume there’s no harm in using 4 or 5.1... but wondering whether to stick with Toyota stuff.

    Spare keys?

    Unfortunately probably the going rate for a modern key I was quoted £450 for a new OEM fob and programming on my old Boxster, and that was just a old style fob.

    Worst Car Ever Driven

    I quite liked the Aygo other than the terrible driving position and seats.

    Wanted - 16 inch wheels

    Thanks all. I found some VW Golf GTI mk4 wheels on eBay, fit perfectly and I’m pleased with the way the car drives.

    Wanted - 16 inch wheels

    No tyres I take it? How does the car drive on these compared to standard?

    New car

    True, it would still be a fun drive with sticky tyres as it's just a great precise chassis. What I would say though, is if it's not driven 'enthusiastically' I would think there's better cars out there, better engines, comfort etc. I happen to think it would make a nice driveway ornament too, cool looking cars.

    What I always say, is the low grip tyres is kind of the point of the car?
