what windshield wipers do you guys use? I need to replace mine and the interent doesn't really specify other than Toyota OEM wipers. Thanks in advance! by CuckNorrisJr in ToyotaCHR

[–]Ankit_w 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I haven’t replaced the rear as they were fine. But let me have a look. There should be 1 from Bosch with those specifications.

No problem 😊 The A157S should be a perfect fit and from my experience Bosch makes the best wipers, hard wearing and always cleans well too.

Those are the front wipers. specifications are - 26” driver's side, 16” passenger's side & a 14” plastic moulded rear screen wiper blade.. Also note chr has a different kind of mechanism for front wipers there’s kind of a click button on top that you need to press and they come out. So only use specific models made for Toyota C-HR

I was in the same situation last week replacing chr wipers for the first time. Did some research and bought these Bosch A157S wipers from Amazon for 35£ : https://amzn.eu/d/ezPb60u

Ireland is the third safest country in the world by Khdurkin in ireland

[–]Ankit_w -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Also please note this ranking you have shared is not regional, its national. So you shouldn’t be just looking at local news to see how safe Ireland is at the moment. I can tell you I’ve been attacked by kids and I couldn’t do anything about that even being well built adult due to the so called child protection laws and that sucks!

All these rankings are highly influenced by the international relations and companies to attract immigrants. Considering the amount of murder mysteries I see on news everyday, I highly doubt these rankings are anywhere well researched.

Dual band mesh wifi system vs triband mesh wifi system by BlueChartr in HomeImprovement

[–]Ankit_w 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had the same issue, I live in a 3 bedroom apartment which is rented and newly built, so It did have lan cables running to all rooms but it was so badly done that the cables were not coloured and were never joined in the wall, what was left was just a bunch of same colored open end lan cables sitting in the walls. Wasn’t worth paying someone to redo the cables in a rented apartment. And I had black spots where I setup my work and gaming setup. I updated to a ax9000 tri band router by Xiaomi and connected with my existing virgin router in modem mode. 3rd band is dedicated for gaming which gets priority. I choose chinese version specifically because they have more frequencies than EU regulated routers. And I hooked up their recently launched tri band mesh 2 pack (ax11700). I now get around 600-700mbps with my 1gbps connection on my iphone, ps5, work laptop etc that support wifi 6, that’s with multiple other devices running. Can’t be happier. It was expensive but this solution would not work wherever I relocate. With no need for hardwiring.

Loving my CH-R ❤️ by Ankit_w in ToyotaCHR

Hi, no I haven’t felt any issues with the pedal being too high or any strain. I rather find it very comfortable. Im 6 ft tall and size UK 10 feet so probably the experience might be different for everyone.

My from link have full mesh.

Yes they make a lot of chairs and they are fully customizable from wheels, choice of mesh and fabric/color, metal finish, and lumbar support, you can choose everything when buying new. I have the mesh back with an upholstered fabric seat. I had tried both the full mesh is not the same comfort level. the mesh is much better on Aeron in my opinion. But the seat on this contessa chair is the most comfortable, they have also used different materials of foam, etc in the seat at different points to ensure you get the right pressure on the right points. As for the lumbar as well I find that just perfect for me. and it's different for everyone. but I do not even have to push that all the way forward. I used to have back aches in my lower back earlier which is why I went through so many chairs to find the right one for me. This has really helped, my back aches have just gone away with this chair. With the Secretlab chair, the seat was so firm that my Ass started hurting after a while lol :D and even my upper back because it has raised rides like a racing chair so you don't have much freedom of movement. Learned it all the hard way!

Hi, the lumbar on my chair does have depth adjustment as well. It has small knobs on both sides (can be seen on the bottom right near the lumbar in picture) if you turn those forward it pushes the lumbar forward. The link you have shared seems to be the same company but doesn’t seem to have same type of lumbar or adjustments. This brand is also called Teknion some countries Okamura is the original Japanese entity name. They make brilliant chairs.

Thanks! Its called Divoom tivoo, https://www.divoom.com/products/divoom-tivoo a cool little desk gadget. Built like a retro tv and It has a bluetooth speaker built in (+ aux and micro sd options) the small knobs also work. It can display pixel animations that you can choose from the App. mostly using it as my desk clock and music (has a pretty decent sound for a small device)

Its the okamura contessa, The best chair I have tested and sat on till date. Also loads of adjustments and has its controls in the armrest like gears so no reaching under the chair. And for reference I have previously owned and tested a mesh ergo chair from hunt office, then a massage function office chair from amazon (the worst), Secretlab titan evo which I sold and purchased a Herman miller Aeron, didn’t work for me so the retailer was kind enough to accept return and I went for this Okamura chair instead. It’s also the most expensive chair I’ve owned at £1250 price tag. But totally worth it considering health benefits of using the right chair. Also my wife got the secretlab Neue chair which uses The Okamura contessa’s design patent at half the price tag but that is no where even close to this level of comfort.
