    April 2021 Upgrade - Whoops

    Well, we did an upgrade this morning and suffice to say, it did not all go well. The upgrade itself went fine, the post-upgrade tasks utterly broke it. Everything was a mess and looked a bit like a Defender after a short journey :) Sadly, the restore of the backup did not fix it either for...

    GDPR - what is it and how does it affect us

    Folks, Some of you may know what GDPR is, what is means for consumers and what it means for websites and companies. This new EU law comes into effect on the 25th May 2018. In a nutshell: Consumers have to opt-in to marketing or "non-contract" emails. Consumers should be able to easily...

    Flashing Park light

    Hi folks, Well, another trip to Italy, another new flashing warning light... I'm currently in Italy and the 150 has started pinging and flashing the P light when you stop and turn it off. Can't see anything in the manual for it, never heard it do this before. Wondering if I broke it...

    2018 Land Cruiser

    Could this be the new LC? Did someone from Audi defect to Toyota? I don't think the dash of the 150 is anything to write home about and they certainly seemed to do a good job at ruining it more :( Made from old tesco bags? Clocks might be nice? Hard to tell... Back to the 120 look...

    Auto folding mirrors on the 150

    Slow coming up to temp

    In these code(r) temps I feel the 150 takes ages to get up to temp. In the morning it takes around 6 miles (15 minutes) for the need to get to 1/4 on the scale. For much of this I'm doing 60-70mph. Yesterday I did a slow drive to pick up my daughter (10-15 minutes each way) and did not climb...

    LED high beams

    The LED low beams on the 150 are brilliant. Very bright, very white and do well at lighting everything up. The brights also throw very far but are rather orange in comparison. I thought, for the sake of £20 and some change, I thought I'd try these. There were two options - with...

    Auto folding mirrors

    I find it odd that in 2016 a vehicle does not have auto folding mirrors when you lock it. end rant. Right, so, at the risk of being ribbed by @TonyP again about this - I don't have folding mirrors. I have found a few candidates from China who sell kits to enable this function. It works on the...

    French company who sold 4x4 bumpers etc?

    Non-genuine parts used by insurance companies

    I was on the phone today with an insurance broker who mentioned that a lot of the larger companies - he named Admiral - use copy parts if the car is older than 3 years and at their discretion if the car is newer than 3 years. I thought this was a bit of a con. You crash, you get non-genuine...
