  1. LS430 AUX, possible?

    Hi Alex, as far as I can recall, mine looked very similar. The Bluetooth was integrated as far as I am aware, and not being technical, I just pair it to my iPhone, and it works. i have searched my eBay account, which is how I guess I found it but can’t locate purchase. Good luck, Rgds, Roger
  2. LS430 AUX, possible?

    Hi Alexander fitted mine no problems and it continues to work fine. At the time I recall ordering , the model year and type was listed and I just went ahead and ordered it. Sorry I can’t be more help, rgds, Roger
  3. I totally agree that 600 miles is a max day distance. I have just begun my first leg,of a European adventure and have no intention of exceeding that limit, there just is no point. So far first 250 miles showing 31.4 miles per gallon, and effortless 'Lexus' drive. Eurotunnel on Monday morning, cheers, Roger
  4. John, they were not in danger of needing to be replaced, and I would probably have run them safely for another 3-5k miles in this country. However as tyres wear so does the potential of a puncture and the advice I was given, advisory as it was, I took, more on the basis of cost in an emergency situation. I think with hindsight it was probably also more sensible from a safety point of view. Had I been advised to change them for use in this country, on safety grounds, I would have done so without question.
  5. I think I was just making the point that it is cheaper to buy 4 new tyres in advance, not through the Indie who advised by the way , than risk a blow out, from tyres that had seen their best years. As Malc says would have been getting close to legal limit, and I think there were cracks appearing. The comments were made in good faith, and yes I do have full breakdown cover, but you are not going to be able to buy at the prices mentioned on here, for one tyre in an emergency. The 4 Michelins cost me £480 fitted. I also have better peace of mind to have ticked of a potential problem.
  6. I am leaving a week Monday for a 2 month trip around France and Spain. I am very attentive to my tyre conditions, but when I visited a Lexus indie recently, and told him of my plans, he advised to fit 4 new tyres in the basis that if I had a blow out in France, it could cost me more than a new set of 4 tyres here. I have just fitted 4 new Michelin Primacy 3, just trust I now don't have a puncture, but I do carry a spare. Sorry to hear of Norman's problems.
  7. Paul, have a chat with Paul Frost at Lexusspares direct. There is not much he does not know about LS 430's. His no is 07590 072646 Cheers, Roger
  8. I agree with you I thought it was cheep.
  9. The car mats are designed to be able to be washed in a washing machine and come up like new. I took mine to a launderette which had a large drum machine then dried them on the washing line.
  10. Paul it is highly durable, and will last a long time, I understand. Most of the top Powerboats, Sunseeker etc., are wrapped. Being on the sea is an extremely hostile environment and they take it no problem. A big advantage is if you scratch or damage it, you just cut a piece out and put a new piece in, plus it always looks shiny, like new.
  11. I have to agree. Am taking my LS 430 to France and Spain, leave uk 22nd May, back 12th July. Am not complacent, or wishing to tempt fate, but I have total confidence in my car. Malc made a very good point, that major components don't really break down, and minor problems can be sorted with a local mechanic. Have full Nationwide European Cover, just hope I don't need it !!!!!! Cheers, Roger
  12. See Lexus are numero one again, with the RX gaining 5 Stars. FYI Land Rover / RangeRover, BMW X5, Audi Q7 all got 2 Stars. Happy days, Roger
  13. Welcome onboard. Your new baby looks brilliant, so do what we all do...........enjoy...Rgds, Roger
  14. I would like to think that is not the case, if so, it is very naive in this day and age. An opportunity to build trust and a new customer, whichever way you look at it.
  15. Has the car been standing for long periods, because if they rust, this then really accelerates wear
