    Hi, We have a Lexus rx450 and my wife got a warning to say the battery was low on her key. She popped in to Guildford Lexus they.replaced her battery FOC which a small thing but great. She mentioned that both badges had de-laminated and they told her it would be about £200 to replace them. But because she bought it from them 10 months ago they would fix FOC. What great service thanks lexus Guildford - Pete

    Just a little project i have been messing with to pass the time. The original speedo needle is now the seconds hand The 3 marks were for, 30-50-70 mph.

    Looks great, too good for a shed. Not sure about the three marks though......isn't 62 mph equal to 100 km/h?

    You may already have a set of carpet mats but why not try to see if you can get the dealer to throw in a set of genuine Lexus rubber mats for the winter?

    Another thing to bear in mind with the American stuff is that it's designed for LHD. Many of the manifolds that are imported by people wanting decats and such end up finding that it all fouls the steering column on their RHD car! Cheap turbo manifolds are indeed prone to cracking. I've even seen some of the expensive HKS manifolds crack though :( Paul at Whifbitz is very good and knows his stuff so you'll be alright in his capable hands :)

    So fellas! She´s done for this time... I´ve installed the TTE Coil Overs, BOOZ strutbar and the TTE´s. It was meant to be in a totally different anthracite grey colour and i was chocked when i saw them for the first time. At first i got scared ****less, but after installing them, they kind of start growing on me a little bit. Photo is taken with iphone and during dusk, so the Picture doesn´t do justice. What do you guys Think?

    I would disagree. Most people would be happy to live with a black interior even if it isn't their first choice. But there are many people who would never have a red interior.

    Not sure if I could let them touch my car, I'd have to inspect all the rags to make sure there is no bits in them lol. Chris, trick to arriving there kinda clean, drive real slow (60-70mph, it worked for me last time. No flies wedged in my grille or spread on my windscreen which is my pet hate.

    My choice is, sorry me and the other half's choice is Museum, camping site, beer, barbecue, more beer, seconds at barbecue, some more beer, set-up tent, and maybe just another beer or 3 to celebrate if i set the tent up the right way. For entertainment we could play boot golf in the LS's, they big enough. After you have fell about laughing at me setting up a tent. If all else fails then skeggy followed by beer etc, you get the picture

    I'm up for the trip to the motor museum, other half is ok with it too, only condition we have is it needs to be weekend, damn work gets in the way of all fun. As for camping, we both up for that too, sadly needs to be weekend again, bloody work grr, I like the skegness pod thingamadoodads, barby is good with a few good peeps and a few more good beers. First week in june is a no go, hols to isle of man for the TT racing, 2nd week in sept is out too, family hols lake district, other times should be fine, other half does work the odd saturday but will be able to sort i reckon as long as dates are know.

    ^same^ I'll be there wherever it is but if we could arrange a campsite not too far away after the meet? My mrs would come if we go overnight and have a BBQ and some drinks. :)

    Personally, I would travel any distance in the UK to attend a Lexus Owners Club meet,-if last Sundays East Midlands ( my first) was anything to go by, I'd take me and my LS anywhere to repeat the experience, a finer bunch of people I never met. I'd be up for an overnighter, camping sounds good, -as I mentioned on a previous thread, I wouldn't mind taking responsibility for cooking the food,( barbecue ?) It would also give members a better chance to get to know each other, something not achievable on a one-day meet,whatever we decide, count me in.

    When I bought my LS I was told that you can override the need for the code, I am not sure if this is the info that you need but it might be worth a try. I have not tried this myself, it came on a seperate piece of paper in my Sat Nav and Stereo instruction book. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (combination meter warning lights illuminated) While pressing CLIMATE and AUDIO switches simultaneously, turn the HEADLIGHT CONTROL SWITCH in the following sequence: OFF~SIDE LIGHTS~OFF~SIDE LIGHTS~OFF~SIDE LIGHTS The SYSTEM CHECK will become displayed on the screen. It will take approx. 30 seconds for the check to be completed - the display will change from CHECKING to OK Once all the function checks display OK then press MENU. The DIAGMENU will be displayed Starting with the AUDIO button, follow the sequence: AUDIO~DESTINATION~AUDIO~DESTINATION~AUDIO~DESTINATION The SECURITY menu will be displayed. Using the numeric keys enter 440215. Press ENTER The displaywill return to the DIAGMENU. Switch the IGNITION SWITCH to the OFF position. The security code is now cleared - the unit will operate normally. PLease ensure that a new security code is re-entered with the customers knowledge. As I said before I have no idea if this will work, maybe you can let us know how you get on... Redsteve.
