  1. This morning after getting to a jobsite, I was sitting with just the radio on when the vsc & engine lights came on. Long story short my battery had finally given up the ghost, glad workmates were there so I could duck out and get a freshie :D
  2. I feel like she's a bit heavy on the fuel, sits around the 10.5~11l/100 mark with my style of driving, whereas my old trd with more kms on the clock would an easy 1l/100 lower than that with the same style of driving. Changing out the plugs is a cheap enough exercise in my books, also going to do an injector clean (in my ultrasonic cleaner) and have a rebuild kit on the way, because what the heck. Mostly curiosity as opposed to necessity really
  3. Known TRD aurion issues

    One I had come up was the supercharger coupler was worn, so when the car was idling it had a very diesel engine ticking sound coming from the sc snout, the noise would go away when you applied some revs.
  4. haha damn, I only just ordered the NGK's yesterday and didn't even think of trying the pamper20 code. Oh well! :p
  5. Noise when starting ignition

    If you're really keen you can buy a stethoscope from supercheap, otherwise with the screwdriver you pretty much have your ear against the end of it which helps you to hear if the sound is coming from the thing it's touching.
  6. Bluetooth Music ?

    Typically you can't, though if you use an app like BTMono you can, but the quality is compromised.
  7. TRD Body kit fitted to a ZR6 ?

    I'm pretty certain that's a solid yes. I hope so anyway, I've got the TRD rear bumper & bootlid w/ spoiler that I'm going to put on my ZR6 eventually!
  8. My sincere apologies for the seemingly lazy question, I have tried searching but I'm having a royal brainfade in picking the right terms and can't find any. Just after a pic that shows the HU plugs, facing the pin opening. Thanks
  9. Kluger brakes fitted to Aurion sx6

    Sorry to dig this one up, but I just want to check what pads people are running with their upgraded calipers and how much dust they're putting out. Finally bought a pair of calipers yesterday (can't rush into these things haha), rotors are on the way, and I'm slightly doing my head in looking locally and internationally for pads that won't dust up and scream all day long
  10. Going by the bustling hive of activity of this forum sub, I expect a speedy response (haha) Anyways, in case there's anybody out there, just a couple of questions about that particular unit, the GA8164. 1. How do you find the sound quality compared to the stock unit? 2. Don't suppose anyone knows if there's a pre-out on that unit? The head unit info page doesn't give any specifics, just the front & rear outputs vs front & rear speaker outputs, which has me scratching my head. All I want is google maps, bluetooth connectivity, and DAB+, with a physical volume knob (not buttons!), is that too much to ask for D':
  11. Aurion Belt Replacement

    I remember it being pretty easy to do on my TRD (rip baby), take off the driver side wheel, remove the access panel, and use something to back off the belt tensioner and then the rest is pretty straightforwards, just take note of the routing if you don't have that handy sticker in the engine bay anymore :)
  12. NEVER ! Replace a TIRE AGAIN !!!

    It makes no difference unfortunately. I had already been using it in my TRD when the dash started breaking down, and it didn't cover the stickiness either. Think of it like sunscreen - it'll stop you from getting burnt skin, but it won't stop you from dying inside :)
  13. Front Rotors/pads

    Last time I did the pads, which was on my TRD may she rest in peace, I found I could compress the pistons by hand/finger strength alone.
  14. Buying TRD Aurion

    If the engine kinda sounds like a diesel while idling, get a bit closer and confirm the rattle is coming from the s/c, which'll mean you'll want to look at replacing the coupling inside. Also, keep an eye out for the dreaded melting dash, as per the sticky up the top. If you find one where the dash has already been replaced you're laughing.

    Easiest way to work it out would be to remove one of the easy to access bolts and visit a fastener shop and get them to match it up.
