  1. Temperature gauge

    Tax is a surprising £130 considering it’s a hybrid. Currently getting 67.5 mpg ,mainly town with 10% motorway saving me at least £50 a week. That’s a saving that equals 50% of the finance payments. Just done my 1st pair of fronts at 25k. Got it with 2000 on the clock , over 5yr term, no deposit at 390 pm. services are every 10k the same as a new i40 strangely enough. Heated and ventilated front seats , heated rear seats and headed steering wheel I couldent now do without. must say that after 12/13 hours a day the i40 was more comfortable. well happy with it . It beats the Toyotas hands down for me.
  2. Temperature gauge

    Spam kind of keeps you off for some reason mate, but Iv had my ioniq now for 6 month with no issues.

  5. Still got a litre in my lock up down the rd, will have a butchers when I get a mo
  6. Tbh honest I suppose you don’t know. Although I always try and have a little chat with the technician. I did though ask beforehand after asking for the quote actually ask how much I’m paying for the fluid. i seemed to save around £30 by purchasing this at another main dealer. if I remember correctly I was advised to buy 8 litres although after the work was carried out they handed a one litre bottle back.
  7. 60.000 mate. My advise is to get the main dealer to do it, it needs to be done correctly. Its not just a matter of dropping and topping up but you’ll be surprised how many mechanics will do just that. A colleague of mine done just that and it lasted around 2000 miles. Basically wrote the car off. Main dealer costs for a new box is around £9000, yes 9k. They’ll charge around £200.
  8. Oil overfill problem

    On a Service they do tend to fill to max so hopefully it’ll be fine.
  9. Coolant conundrum

    You know your getting old when, you can’t remember the colour of the coolant you put in your car only 3 months ago. id have a butchers if only the tea leafs had not chord my car. The point is though, it don’t matter what colour it is as you can safely mix with any other colour.
  10. Choosing between 2 i40s

    Agree with abbs.
  11. Coolant conundrum

    My main dealer would only supply prestone anti-freeze. They told me the reason was that it’s guaranteed to mix safely with any other. And never use any anti freeze neat other than topping up which you should never really have to do.
  12. Car stolen

    Every 10k servicing on a new i40 absolutely killed it for too. Its every 10k on a Toyota so if that’s the size your looking for bear in mind the boots easily as big on the ionic. Im getting 63.5 mpg cabbing mainly around town saving me a tenner a day against the i40. That alone pays half my finance making a hybrid a no brainier for me. Heated steering wheel heated front and rear seats plus ventilated fronts. Wireless charging, Android and Apple play and smart cruise. I’m loving it.
  13. Choosing between 2 i40s

    DAB radio and an upgrade to a 7 speed auto gearbox , just the two things I know of.
  14. Car stolen

    No idea mate. What’s the problem with the long life Gaz?
  15. Car stolen

    Sorry Gaz , never read your post correctly. This what I used ,
