    Picked up my 2017 Orange Edition for under £21k which was a nice little saving 7k on the clock. Still in love with it.

    IS the performance pack the Clubsport?

    If so, worth going for as you get the sachs dampers & brembo brakes.

    Blue Ed with Performance Pack all day long. You can't buy a full front and rear Brembo BBK kit for the price difference alone. That's not to take into consideration the better dampers and wheels too. The Blue is a no brainer, it's the best 86 you can buy.

    Need to see one in the flesh I think, just not convinced with the light blue :confused:

    yeah it's a shame the performance pack isn't available on the standard car as the blue is a bit marmite.

    I think the blue looks much nicer in person than pictures, thought the same about the Orange Edition too

    Definitely worth seeing it

    I don't really like the shade of blue but the kit is nice. If you fit Sachs suspension (some of the best stuff you can buy on any car) and big brakes to the standard car it would probably cost around the same.

    The dealer called today, to tell me they will only be doing the light tomorrow. They said that they won't be doing the recall until Toyota have sent someone down to do "a show and tell" on taking the engine apart.

    Yup, the ~150 page picture book instruction manual is too complicated for most techs to understand. Not expecting any dealer to have the training and parts in place until easter, I'm aiming to have mine done with the 6yr service in August. I was aiming to go FI on that service but now I'll have to wait another 6 months to make sure the engine is put back together properly.

    Yeah ideally I'd like to wait until August/September for the service to be done at the same time too.

    Spoke to my local dealer today (Although I'm not going through them for the recall) and they said they've received some documents about it but still waiting for a training course date for 2 of their mechanics to go on before they can start to proceed.

    It's a known fault!!!!!

    Yup, well known issue due to being tightened up too tight. If they won't budge, just do what everyone else does and get Valentis. ;)

    I wanted to keep the outside as standard.

    I have told them it's either been damaged when they took the wrap off, or it should be fixed under manufacture warranty as a known fault. Or it should be covered by the 1 year warranty it had when I bought it. Or else what's the point of a warranty?!

    Just keep at it - if they don't budge complain to head office, will generally quickly get it resolved if it's a known issue as such

    A guy from the main office gave me a call to say the car will be ready tomorrow, and to ask what I thought of the Aygo. He wasn't aware that the garage had mentioned charging me for the work, and is now looking into it.

    Is this a case of the garage manager being on commission, so has tried to charge me?
