That small area is rubbish for putting your key in. My fat fingers have issues getting the key out again   :)  They do stay in my pocket too.

Disagree.  A reverse sensor keeps you informed, e.g. of errant pedestrians walking behind the car, no matter where you are looking (e.g. in the side mirrors).  

Obviously, both sensors and camera is ideal, but sensors are easier to install than threading wires through the car and pulling the dash apart imho (otherwise I'd have installed a camera, tho' I don't really miss one).

Tony H, What I mean is: Toyota to fit the rear camera instead of the sensors, if you want 'reversing technology'

Now using the rev range up to 5k. How much running in before using the full range, 1.5k miles?

Plan to sound proof rear of the car (boot done) next weekend. Also have ordered a replacement 4" speaker while I have the internal trim off. Will let you know how I get on.

Speaker update in other posts. I will do a full report on in members mods when the front speakers arrive. Slow delivery of new speakers ment they will be installed next week. Now have 2k on the clock, Just filled up with super unleaded for the first time. I seem to notice the power dip after 3,300 revs with this fuel, weird!

Yea I've read that too. Apparently they just engineer in the "wear" they would experience while running in.

Shocked  Should be super unleaded every time!  The engine management may still be compensating for the lesser fuel you've been using, and you'll now have a mixture of fuel in the tank.  Keep using the good stuff and you'll get the full performance back.

Depends on the car, and it's not just about compensating for the wear in the design of the engine.  The GT86 definitely should be run in, it's a high performance engine (in terms of its output per litre it is high for a NA engine) and has been shown to perform better if properly run in.   The manual IIRC says <4k rpm for the first 1000 miles.  It also shouldn't be kept at a constant speed/load for prolonged periods, so doing 70mph up and down the motorway is not a good way to run it in.  In fairness, it's more fun doing it on twisty roads anyway Smile
There's an in-depth discussion on running-in here.
