  1. Hi.Not a good experience really.First appointment cancelled because the LPG mechanic wanted a day off,but at least they rang me.On the day I was booked in first 1200.Checked the car in at 1140.Was told to come back around 1330.When I came back they hadn't even started it.Took the car in at 1340 and was out in 35 mins.Car runs OK but as soon as I got on the motorway the VSC/Trc light came on.Phoned them and was fobbed off and told it's a problem with the car.Had a look on here on a couple of posts and utility seems that something hasn't been tightened properly. Haven't had time to go back but they are pretty arrogant and rude so next time I'll probably go back to BPV in Slough. £79 + Vat but hassle with it . Sorry if it's a bit of a story ! Thx mate.probably need a code cleared hopefully.Live and learn Yes it was Oxford AUTOGAS. Daughter lives out that way so took a day off work and booked in there. At least my lunch was free 😉

  7. Happy new year everyone. Can anyone recommend a good mobile LPG service technician in the Reading area? I have previously used BPV services in Slough but they do not open on Weekends so I need to either someone to come to me or a place within 30 mins or so that opens on a weekend. Thanks in advance
  8. Thx Harry.I presume there must be a fuse for the compressor somewhere ?

Hi all.I now have an oven on wheels as during the 3/4 days of summer we have I have no air con !Had a guy from AC4 cars look at it and said that there was gas in the system but the compressor was not cutting in.Need to check whether an electrical or mechanical fault.I had the rad and condenser replaced 2 years ago.Any ideas? Thx in advance

  13. I have done some research and am tempted by the new Michelin Cross climate tyres.Not available in 245/45/18 yet but I have a set of 17" wheels so will go for 225/55/17 as fitted on previous Ls models.cheapest I've found.let me know if anyone can get them cheaper.thx https://www.cartyres.com/tyre-selection?source=brand&op=manual-selection
  14. Hi all.Just wondering if anyone has had their rear a/c pipes capped/welded as I have a leak on my rear pipe(common apparently) and it is too expensive to replace.Thanks in advance. Lexus ls430 2004 LPG
