Thanks @campbeam and @Tony Prodigy for the info.
@bob007 As per T&C from TOYOTA, my car is still with warranty as long as it's serviced properly.
In order to keep my warranty, I probably will have to keep all my receipts for parts and oils.
The reason why I want to service my RAV4 - I know the dealership use VPS 10W-30 for oil change. Nothing wrong about the oil but I want to use better names, due to 12 months service interval of the latest models. I am looking to switch to 0W-16 or 20 from Penrite or Mobile1.
I have been servicing my 2012 COROLLA for over 4 years and have no issue performing most of the work as per log book.
I am researching the viability of swapping a 2zz-ge into an ae82, I have seen a few ae82's and 92's with the swap done but no detailed information on mounting, driveshafts and the shifter. Hoping someone has done the swap or seen one done and can give me an idea of what's involved.
Back in 2019...I did a lot of research on Petrol vs Hybrid that's why I bought a Petrol Camry.
The Hybrid battery that sits across the back seat costs many thousands to replace...Toyota gives you a 5 year warranty...10 years it you service the car with Toyota. After that you pay...your car wont be worth much in 10 years.
If the Hybrid battery dies...you can't jump start it. The Electric motor that runs the system also costs heaps to replace...replacing the brakes cost thousands to replace...Hybrids cost thousands more to buy.
Toyota says you only use 4.6 lts per 100 kms but you must use 95 octane or higher and there's the cost of the Hybrid battery replacement...so where's the saving.
In all honesty mate, whatever is on sale really. Look into Mothers CMX, Bowden's Wet Dreams, Meguiars Ceramic Wax, Turtle Wax Hybrid Spray etc. I've used a mix of CMX, Wet Dreams and even Carpro HydrO2 sealant when I do the whole car and the work great. I tend to top it up every month or 2 just to be sure that it's slick and protected. I know that CarPro has their DLUX kit which is a ceramic coating for lights which will last much longer but does require a bit more effort to apply and what not and is also a lot pricer given that it should last a lot longer.
Hi everyone hope you are all well. I am still trying to hunt down a company that can made me a heavy duty sway bar for my Kluger, can anybody help or assist me i live in Melbourne and i cannot find anyone.
As well has anyone fitted a cold air intake to a 2011 Kluger? if so can you please let me know where you purchased it from as i cannot find a kit anywhere thanks Lebo
Nice mate! Looks good. It's worth putting some spray on sealant on them too if you have any. Will stop them fading so quickly as well. I've been doing mine for the last year and a half or more and no issues with the lenses.
Just a" heads up". I had the y pipe mod done & did notice a slight difference. It was getting into 6th a lot quicker though.
The biggest change was when I recently combined this with a high flow rear cat & 2 Berklee anti drone sports mufflers. You can only just notice a slight difference in sound at idle & even higher in the revs but is it way smoother & a great power increase.
I am not sure about fuel economy yet but definitely worth it in seat of the pants power uptake and free revving.
I know the Mitsubishi 380/Magna's 3.8/3.5 were getting 7kw from this mod and have used it on them in the past.
