Buy/Sell Section / WTB: Thule Towbar cover
« Last post by bikeit on November 26, 2018, 10:05:00 PM »
I recently borrowed my brother in laws new  car and when I was in town someone nicked the Thule towball plastic cover, so as he is being a prat about it I was wondering if anyone has one they could sell me as Thule have stopped making towbars.

Mazda 3 / Re: Complete Mazda Beginner - Looking for the right car

Found this: https://www.parkers.co.uk/mazda/3/hatchback-2004/review/features-safety-and-equipment/

However a quick read suggests, the Takara is bottom of the range but is still reasonably specced and gets sports body kit and wheels. TS2 is not as sporty looking but actually more highly specced.

Thanks everyone for the help!

I'm also looking at the Takara Spec.

I've been trying to do some Digging online but I struggle to find a comparision between the TS2 and Takara. I have read that the TS2 has traction control whilst the Takara does not?

Can someone tell me the differences?

Punctures are rare these days, and it must be 15 years since I've had to change one at the side of a road.  Generally I get slower punctures, and usually I can find the offending nail.  If it's at the edge I need a new tyre, if not it can probably be repaired.  I then plan that in for tomorrow, or the next day if I maybe need a new tyre ordered in.

Personally I wouldn't choose a car by how commonly stocked its tyre size is. Fit a space saver for that once-in-15 years occasion if you're worried about it (as we have).

Awesome, thanks!

I was seriously worried something had been tampered with with the dashcam installation.

Yours is a Gen 3 but certain things have a tendency to stay the same over time. Sure someone with a more recent car can confirm.

Thanks! Sounds like it could be that. No idea what Gen my car is though :)

On the gen 2 it flashes quickly until the alarm has fully set.

Vehicle Electrics / Security Indicator Flashes Fast

Hi.

Sorry if this is a daft question but is the security indicator supposed to flash quickly for five seconds after you lock the doors?

I think it flashes every two seconds once locked but I've never noticed it flashing fast when you lock it before.

We have just had a dash cam hardwired so I'm worried that something may have been altered.

Thanks.
