  1. Thanks, Unfortunately Toyota was unable to locate a remote for my vin so ended up with an aftermarket system. Cheers, Leo
  2. Hi Team, Just wanting to shed some light on the 1990-2000 model TCR10 tarago keyless entry and chip key, information doesn't seem to be readily available. Looking at purchasing a 99 tcr10 but only has 1 genuine key, which looks like it has an immobilizer chip in the key fob, Are they easy to replace? Only saw one guy selling a generic Toyota "97-02" key with unprogrammed chips on ebay for $40, are these the same for all Toyota keys of the same era? The other thing is the keyless entry remote, there is alarm and security light, but it never turns on according to the current owner. Haven't found any luck with this, did some searching but doesn't seem to have much if any info the the remote. Anyone got a picture of one or part number? easy to program? Thanks
  3. A question re. the awd/4wd estmia's, are they full time awd or part time? edit: a nice read about imported cars (estima in this case) http://altonabeauty.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/buying-imported-used-car.html
  4. I too am in the same boat, I was looking for a Tarago but found the Estima had way more factory options than the overpriced Tarago's with over 300,000kms... Just watch out for those hybrid or diesel models (mk1?) as servicing could be troublesome Also some of the notifications and buttons might be in Japanese, the estima hybrid I had a look at had a touch screen in Japanese side note: why not go to a car dealer and have a look at one? Ie. Pickles or Manheim auctions who display the cars out in a yard like most car dealers Have a look and sus it out, not obligated to purchase...

  6. Response is noticeable over 4000rpm with a 2.75" inguard CAI and 2.25" exhaust with high flow cat and magnaflow turbo muffler on my old 1zzfe powered zze122r. The engine revved freely to redline, but not sure if it made more power, maybe 1-2HP? When the car on the market, the CAI was removed to make the car more stock, anyways drove the car around for afew days and the revs bog down enough to notice around 4000-redline consistantly compared to the CAI. At the end of the day, better off getting a sportivo or something engineered for more performance. ie:
  7. normally get 500-550 out of a full tank of for a 1zzfe city driving, but it didn't matter if i used 91 or 98 so i just use 91.
  8. Shipping was quote at $120 for the coilovers. Will put the items on ebay at lower price.
  9. Not sure on the spring rates, will remove them on the weekend and find out the part number. And have updated they are the early V1 spec coilovers
  10. yeah when they are out of the car, 10-15kg per corner, maybe more
