  1. RS4 to ISF

    Cheers for all the replies, i think a test drive is going to be needed, im not overly fussed about high mileage aslong as the car has history, my RS4 had 120,000 on the clock with full ASH and nothing has gone wrong on it, and its had a few good runs to germany and back
  2. RS4 to ISF

    Don't really know why I am asking the question really......I mean, I've been around Lexus from day one But i see the ISF prices are tumbling now, and wondering if I should move back to the Brand to fill my garage with a new toy been running an RS4 now for a couple of years and to be honest, other than a couple of niggles, that were sorted by Audi really do love the car, so is it time to go for an ISF.... the only thing that I think will put me off is the gearbox, I like manual cars! sell it to me
  3. i added mine to the oil cooler sandwich plate on the side of the engine
  4. Engine Wiring Info Please

    if you want to maintain multiplex functions (dash, alarm, central locking,etc) you need to use the IS200 ecu to control that aspect
  5. Steel, the alloy nuts tend to strip there threads after a couple of on/off
  6. the picture is off the temp sensor, is either clipped under the slam panel or located on the underneath of the crash bar

  8. Alternative Ways To Drain Coolant?

    You do not need to remove the tray completely, just undo the front screws. the drain screw for the radiator is located (looking at front of car) to the bootom right, it is a small white plastic wing nut type plug, undo this, ensuring you have a container suitably sized to take the fluid. once it is undone (it does not need to be fully removed to drain) remove radiator filler cap and this will allow for a more efficient drain of the system

  12. Gs300 Mk2 Sport

    As i dont use it anymore (company car) i have had to make the decision to ungarage the Gs from winter storage and get rid of it, i am not looking for very much as long as it goes to a new home, preferably on these forums. 1999 Gs300 mk2 sport Blue grey leather grey trim 18" sport wheels with 5 great tyres, 2 practically new new pads new abs sensors recon steering rack new track rod ends, and steering arms cam belt done last year will have new battery on collectioni serviced it every year, new oil and filters regardless of milage, and it didnt cover alot each year aftermarket stainless steel exhaust HID headlights (OEM) Aircon works, as do all switches, however the radio display has a life of its own depending on temperature, but functions great the car has the usual scratches and odd dot of rust, it just needs to have some love spent on it, interior is pretty darn good. as it was garaged over the winter, it was declared SORN, and currently has no TAX or MOT, however it had no issues on its last MOT drop me a message if you are interested, as i say, im not looking for very much.
  13. yes its a Mk2, the abs sensors were £300 from lexus poole im not looking much for it, decent offers, just want it to go to a decent home and have a bit of love put into it, the hifi works fine, the display is a bit funny, but thats common
  14. Just to let you know, before i stick an ad in the for sale that i will be putting my 99 GS300 sport up for sale, due to it being garaged over winter, and getting a company car, its now no longer got Tax or MOT....currently SORN it did fly through its last one fine..... its a genuine sport, has the 18 wheels, and xenon headlights, interior is grey, with the dark grey "trim" it has the usual small scratches and little rust spot, but it drives like a dream, i serviced it every 6 months,cam belt was done middle of last year, has almost new tyres, brake pads, it has new ABS sensors and steering rack,track rod ends and will have a new battery. it has an aftermarket exhaust fitted i dont want much for it, i just want it to go to a decent home, if anyone is interested let me know.
