My delivery ETA has moved from the 30th to the 25th at least.  I'm not sure where my little Koba is in the world but my working off my original assumption my expected ship has docked at Port Kembla today and maybe the tracking system is a little off.  In any case I know I'll have it by month end, just getting a bit antsy the closer we get.  

Very close now!!!  I'm excited for you.

Lots of compliments on look and colour since Thursday.  People stopping me in car parks to ask about it.

I'm not sure who chose the slimline plates, as the original contract said $35 for plates, new contract had $170 for plates. I like them, but should I have been asked?

With the CC, is what you're talking about the ACC, or the regular CC?

I've always used CC around town. Don't think this one goes down to 40kph though. 

I asked for min - expecting them to ad to the Contracted price - In the end there was no charge  :)

$170 is Vicroads Price - yes you should have been asked - Ask them now - maybe they can chuck something else you way

Adaptive cruise control - don't think you can just set manual

Yes 40kmh is the bottom mark

But I set mine to 80 on the way to work - if the traffic is doing 70 - it does that

If the lights change and the traffic stops - the car will slow and then eventually put the brakes on by itself and come to a stop

The car is is a hold mode - You tap the accelerator when the lights go green and the care resumes - at the pace of the traffic - until it reaches its max set speed

I don't know if I should trust this tracking system or not since I've now jumped straight into the dealership. Very excited in any case!

Picked up the red devil haha. So happy - pretty nervous on the short drive home. Turned a few heads. Just waiting on side garnishes which they said were on back order (e.g someone forgot)...looks ok without them. So smooth and zippy.

I've always used CC around town. Don't think this one goes down to 40kph though. 

I think it also has a speed limiter so you can set it to 60k and no matter how hard you press the accelerator it won't go over 60k. Better option for around town. Can't find it in the book.

BTW how cool are the puddle lamps!

Guys and girls, please remember to create a topic in the Members Rides area once you start getting your photos of your vehicles.

This thread is starting to get fairly cluttered now. A lot of these questions and points could go into their own topic in order to start expanding the C-HR sub-forum.

      2017  C-HR Koba - AWD - CVT - Pearl White - Carbon Dash

      Hi All,
      Just wondering how other C-HR's are performing fuel wise? Currently I can't get below 7.3L/100km no matter how carefully I drive. I came across a good review where it mentioned they got the test car to match the promoted figure: http://www.carconversation.com.au/reviews/2017-toyota-c-hr-koba-review but I was wondering how everyone else's C-HR was on fuel?
      Anyone get below 6.4L/100km??

      Calling the C-HR a dragon might be a stretch but it is a stand-out, head turning car, even when parked in the street, there is no doubt it looks aggressive from every angle. The C-HR looks like nothing else on the road and makes the competitors cars look boring and bland. I have been stopped more than once by car enthusiasts wanting to know, how it drives or even just to comment on its unique style.
      There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to the driving features and the "WARNING" notices in the manual are there for a reason, ignore them at your peril.

      Australian Specification (2017) CH-R's do not have a Toyota Original USB Charger Port option and the aftermarket USB Ports do not fit in the blank in front of the gear shift, which is the logical place for the port to be located. I have developed a Plug and Play option that any handy person can do to give your C-HR the missing option. 
      NOTE: This is a USB charger only and does not connect into the entertainment system.
      STEP 1:
      Buy a suitable aftermarket USB Charging Port. I purchased one that has 2x 2.1 amp USB ports and a Blue LED Volt Meter. Buy a Twin mini blade fuse holder. These are a piggyback double adapter with a length of wire, usually with a crimp fitting on the end STEP2:
      Prepare the USB Port Unit that you purchased. This is the scary part and done incorrectly will quickly destroy your USB Port. Cut the back off the USB Port flush with the back plate of the USB Port. I used a small high-speed hobby cutting tool with a less than 1mm thickness cutting disk. You may choose to use a fine hand saw. Take care to only just cut through the plastic and not cut into the circuit board or components below. You will also need to cut around the connection pins on the back. Take your time and plan your cuts carefully. Always wear suitable Safety Glasses or goggles and Cut Proof Gloves. Mount the USB Accessory in a vice or clamp as in-hand cutting is dangerous and your blood will damage the circuit board. Depending on the design of your accessory you should now have an exposed circuit board attached to the plate as per the picture below. I would highly recommend that you use an epoxy glue to glue the circuit board to the front plate as most designs only have a small tab either side that the board sits in. Apply voltage to the power pins on the circuit board to ensure correct alignment if using the voltage meter option. Ensure the circuit board is correctly located in the tabs on the body. Ensure the glue you use does not flow into the USB ports or again you have wasted your money. Wait for the glue to completely set. Wrap the circuit board in good quality heat resistant electrical insulation tape to prevent dust settling on the board causing short circuits.  Congratulations, you now have an ugly circuit board attached to the front plate ready for installation. STEP3:
      Remove the Accessory blanking plate from in front of the gear shift. You have two options to do this: Use a sharp tool between the edge of the blanking plate and the trim panel (Not Recommended) Remove 3 trim panels from your car. This sounds the hardest but in fact, Toyota have made this very easy to do and it exposes some fantastic engineering and opens your eyes to how little wiring is visible in these cars. I found the European Spec Hotspot Installation Manual (RHD) - AIM 003 833-0 provides details for removing the trim panels that match the Australian Spec C-HR. You should remove: the passenger central dash cover, the passenger side trim panel on the front of the center console and the trim panel that holds the blanking plate from the back press the blanking plate out of the trim panel. Remove the fuse panel access cover under the dash on the passenger side. The instructions for this are in your manual and the clips are difficult to locate, take your time and you will have no problems with this cover. Removing the large plastic cover gives you access to the interior fuse panel which is located on the left side under the dash. STEP4:
      Connect the wiring. Cut a suitable length of wire to reach from the internal fuse panel and the USB accessory port. Connect a female spade connector on one end and Connect the wire from the fuse double adapter to the other end. Cut another suitable length of wire to reach from the accessory port to a grounded bolt. There is a bolt located on the transmission tunnel that is well located and easily accessible. Crimp or solder a suitable terminal ring onto one end of this earth wire and a female spade connector on the other. Remove the bolt and place the ring terminal over the bolt retorque appropriately. Identify the correct positive and negative lugs on the circuit board Connect the positive and negative spade connectors onto the correct lugs Use good quality insulation tape or shrink wrap tube to ensure no shorting across the terminals. Tie the positive and negative wires together with tape or shrink wrap near the terminals to support each other.  STEP5:
      Remove the fuse cover Locate the 15amp accessory fuse (Blue) in the fuse box and remove it. Attach a new 15amp fuse into the direct line of the piggyback plug and a suitable (5amp) fuse into the takeoff port. Note the genuine Toyota fuses do not fit into the piggyback adapter.   Keep the fuse for future reference and the blanking plate for if you change your mind. Connect the piggyback adapter into the place where the original accessory fuse was located. Stick cable-tie bases at various locations between the fuse box and the USB Port. Attach the cable to the bases with cable ties. Apply some cloth tape from one side of the fuse box across the piggyback connector to the other side of the fuse box for added security STEP6:
      Replace the trim panel through which the USB Panel and wiring are located. Use automotive trim double sided tape to stick the USB ports to the trim panel. Wipe the area where the tape will stick with suitable cleaning fluid to remove any wax or product that may affect the tape from sticking. Sit back and admire your work. but not for too long. You did put the fuse cover into the glove box for potential future reference, didn't you? Refit all the other trim panels. Walk around the vehicle to the driver's side. Don't forget to let your eyes drift over the great lines of the C-HR as you walk around. Seat yourself in the driving position and smile, because you have the coolest car Toyota ever designed. Turn the ignition to the accessory position. (Keyless vehicles, press the start switch without depressing the brake pedal. CONGRATULATIONS 
      If you bought the USB with Volt Meter you will have a lovely new display on your dash.
      Connect a USB lead into one or both ports and plug it into your phone or other USB accessory and check that the device is charging.
      NOTE: Do Not Connect a cable between this USB charger port and the entertainment system. EVER!
      Standard Rider: Do this project at your own risk. I accept no liability for the work of others who follow these instructions.

      Is bling your thing?
      ABS Chrome and Stainless Steel non-genuine accessories seem to be coming onto the market along with custom rims and other things.
      Do you intend to pimp your ride! and what is hot and what is not?
