I'm pretty sure I had a post somewhere for the most useless RAV4 accessory there is. Can't find it, so going
to post it here instead as I take it back. Because this has got to be the most useless accessory ever, but the
surprising thing is that it's badged TRD, why ?


PS, it's a "thing" to cover the gap between the side of your seat and the side of your centre console,
Don't ask me, I don't know why either :rolleyes: Maybe it stops crumbs ?

I've had a pair of PIAA Slim Profile Two Tone Sports Horn 400/500Hz fitted to number 2 RAV http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/horns/piaa-slim-profile-two-tone-sports-horn-400-500hz as the existing horn has given up. I haven't heard them yet, but hopefully should when I get the car back tomorrow (as long as the petrol tank pump plate arrives in time for replacement). I could try sounding the horns to see if it wakes Big Kev up?

Hello all, on a U.S. RAV website some members have fitted "side protection moldings" to help stop some dings.
Would you believe that Toyota NZ are not allowed to import them to NZ due to some agreement with Toyota Japan :rolleyes:

So I wonder does anyone know if they are available in the U.K. please? I have tried Amazon in U.S. but they won't export them
to New Zealand either. I find this situation crazy as I am sure they would sell more than enough to make it worth the effort.

They are definately available for the RAV4.3
Not familiar with these mouldings for the latest 4.4

These here I guess? Genuine Toyota (PT938-42130-10) Side Body Molding

we actually looked at the 4.3 which had the side strips and my wife was a definite no.. that's after having the 4.2 with side strips which were spot on.

reverse side of this thread - the garage said that they can take the strips off easily as they are heat bonded and they assured us that you wouldn't see any marks.. wasn't convinced TBH
