  1. I Just thought I should mention that I also got the Check Vsc light on and it was bank 1 & 2 lean and it was the same hose that literally disappeared. I didn't have the rough idle issue and the Toyota mechanics had no idea why it disappeared. FYI I was also just doing motorway driving when it happened.
  2. Scott I just read through your whole build. Great job and you do take better photos than most.
  3. Thanks for this document it is very interesting.
  4. There are alot of right hand corners in NZ..... To be honest based on my experiences - mechanical failure can happen anytime anywhere, whether its owner neglect, or a poor production batch **** happens when it wants to happen. I will enjoy my TRD Aurion anyway I want, and not live in fear of a mechanical failure - If the car breaks it breaks and I will repair it or upgrade it. There are over 500 TRD Aurion's out there and many more Lotus Exige S and Evora S with the same setup. I haven't noticed a huge recall on either vehicles and most people believe the 2GR-FE is pretty solid.
  5. Damm Auckland is such a small place....I grew up in Papakura and work in Drury/Ramarama. The first owner is actually Toyota NZ HQ - I assume it was a demo or media car - which could be a good or bad thing....The second owner was a photographer who did work for Toyota NZ frequently. Its had all the recall 's done I checked that with Toyota NZ via email.
  6. Hi Scott Yes I was looking for a used daily driver and I saw the other TRD Aurion in Whangarei for 30-32k I think. It had quite low km around 60,000km but it was beyond my budget. Originally I was looking at XR6 Turbo, Mark X and SS etc but the TRD Aurion popped up and I knew it was a rare vehicle. So when I saw this one on trademe for roughly 20k I jumped on it. I got on a plane to Palmerston North about 1week after the trademe ad went up test drove it signed the papers. It got transported up to Auckland in a weeks time to Turners Auctions. Its a little rough here and there as it was daily driven by its previous owner but I am happy with my purchase of course. I am going to do a couple of things to it and thats all really. I am going to install one of these 10.2inch android tablet systems in particular this one below: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Capacitive-10-2-Quadcore-Android-4-4-Car-radio-for-Toyota-Camry-2006-2011-car-radio/1179635_32710547112.html?spm=2114.12010608.0.0.Hw6lfE and maybe some performance enhancements - nothing crazy. I'm based around East Auckland and work in South Auckland - Drury mainly. Let me know if you want to check it out.
  7. Hi All my name is Bobby and I have purchased a used 2007 TRD Aurion SL in Auckland New Zealand. My TRD is no13 hopefully it isn't a unlucky number for me.
