Has anyone got Toyota to sort out the holes for the mud flap fixings?It looks really gash with the empty holes but my dealer reckons there's nothing he can do. It may be a small thing but it's really got me narked.

Fixed that for you




That really is a bad attitude from the dealer when you've just spent £25k with them. All it needs is something like these fitted to the holes.

Something which they must have hundreds of in their stores\workshops.

Yeah, my dealer reassures me that it's an easy fix and they'll do something about it but we'll have to wait and see.

Looks great and part of car
That was my thinking also, just didn't work out to be the cheapest way of filling the holes...

True but then again I saved £1600 by having cloth seats and £750 by using my Tom Tom sat nav so I am quids in
Positive thinking..! In that case I saved £750 as I didn't get Sat Nav, already have a TomTom.

Ah yes, but in my view we're getting a gorgeous car that's worth way more to us than having £25k sat in a bank somewhere...

Totally agree
To me it is worth every penny
Makes me smile every time I get in to it and just love it being on my drive gleaming in sunlight

Yours will be along soon I see...

Yep, about 2 weeks to go now so getting very close, due Monday 24th but if it arrives at the Dealer earlier I might get it Thu/Fri the week before... needless to say I'm crossing more things than a contortionist.

New registration month(s) are the busiest for all car manufacturers, by a long way!

It's half a dealer customer service issue. The fact that you've used the words "my dealer" instead of "the dealer who supplied the car" implies your satisfied to continue to put business his way. Any dealer worth their salt knows their profit and reputation hinges on customer service. If your treated well you're likely to back for servicing, repairs and even future purchases.
Why continue to line the dealer's pocket with profit when your not happy and there are many other Toyota dealers out there all keen for your business.

Remember he's not your dealer. He's a dealer who needs to work for your continued business.

.. exactly.. and don't sing their praise or give thanks, just because they do what they're contractually obliged to do! My client doesn't say thanks to me for doing what they pay me to do :)

In my opinion the leather alcantara is well worth the £1600 rather than having it sitting in a banl somewhere


My dealer could only offer to fit the mudflaps for £140 ...
