    New Forum

    Sorry if it’s already been said but the new forum seems to work quite nicely. It’s faster than the previous (although it did crash like the old one did when I first opened it - maybe my iPad?). I like the “like” facility and the easy access emojis. The old problem I had with apostrophes being...

    GT diesel and Turbo gasoline front brakes

    Had the pads out yesterday while fitting the winter wheels. It appears that the front brake on the high powered model is a carry over from the CX7 with twin pistons. Here is a comparison of the pads with the single piston version left and the twin piston version right. Here you can see the...

    Some PDF*s. I suppose the most significant breakthrough is the use of ALL LEDs for all other than base models including the indicators as these will migrate to other models and facelifts.

    Sorting a couple of dash rattles - 2018 model.

    I had a couple of rattles which curiously, I never had with my red 2017 model. Ive sorted them now with a bit of input from RRG Stockport who have been superb about sorting defects since I changed over from Toyota to Mazda. Anyway, thats another subject so first, the rattle from the centre...

    Ceratec brake grease.

    I’ve often said that I detest copper based grease on brakes but I thought I’d share this. If you mount alloy wheels onto steel hubs, they will corrode to the point of needing to knock them off. Two years ago I removed the wheels from a mates RAV4 Hybrid to underbody seal it. It was literally...

    2017 speaker change - WARNING

    Look what Ive got.....

    Look what Ive got..... Im in the USA for a while and was pleasantly surprised to see Alamo with 2018s in stock. It gives me chance to compare yours with mine (if youll pardon the expression). Im suitably impressed with it although this one with 10000 miles has not been loved. The low oil light...

    Advertising banners dropping down on this forum

    This forum has started dropping banners down with links to National Enquirer type garbage. Its a typical attempt to increase revenue but its no good to me and I find it infuriating. If there is no way to stop it, I wont be visiting the forum. Is there a way to stop it happening?

    2.2D Photos.

    As more and more questions start to pop up about the forthcoming diesel engined KF (2017 on) model, I thought you might like a look under the hood. With the cover on it looks very much like the 2.5G. .....and on the inside, the box is the same conventional six speed auto but note the absence...
