Toyota Avensis T27 Tourer Project

This also arrived tonight

Has a nasty plastic/vinyl wheel and no cruise control - and I know many on various models have had some luck with adding a cruise stalk/cable and it activates!

Stalk and cable is about £80 but kill two birds with one stone, cue a further up the range steering wheel, full leather, cruise control stalk in place, a few other functions (which won’t work), a cheeky best offer on eBay to the dismantler and, £41 delivered later, new steering wheel.




At worst, I end with a leather steering wheel and some functions that don’t work such as hands free (or I just move my existing buttons) and at best I end up with a leather wheel and cruise control. Worth a shot

Will get yesterday’s update on here tomorrow as pics have uploaded and then will get on with the job as I have been promised some time for it tomorrow

What a bargain. Sometimes a cheeky offer is worth trying.

I bagged some black exhaust trims for my 3series came off a showroom car. £25 cheeky offer accepted including delivery rrp £90

Yeah - I have picked up some great buys - some from dismantlers, some from Toyota dealers online, some from Toyota directly and some general eBay or Gumtree hawking for the car.

Once a car starts to get written off ages, parts become easier at bargains.

Checking HowManyLeft on the car the maximum number of Avensis T2’s on a VVTi Valvematic was around 480 at it’s peak for both 1.8 and 1.6 petrol and there are still near
460 left on the road so a long lasting car.
