Re: Front wiper blades.

I normally buy just the rubber blade and replace it in the current frame.

Toyota eBay store is good price normally.
At the minute they are £32 for a pair of rubbers, that seems very expensive, you can buy good quality blades for less than that

Re: ??? 3Yr MapCare & Services H ???

Save your money and see how much it costs to upgrade the head unit to use Car Play. The Toyota sat nav is absolutely shocking. I never use it. Even looking at it hurts my eyes. I’d love to know what the hell they were thinking when they decided to use it. I've used it for 3 1/2 years always got me ...
