  1. Black grill surround and blacked out chrome for me too
  2. Get the codes read first of all. The vsc light are most likely a knock on effect rather than an issue themselves. Where are you located? Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  3. They are great bulbs, by far the best ones I've found. Good reliability too, I've had a pair in my GS for a few years. Bit cheaper now than they used to be too, I think they were about £20 when I bought them originally. Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  4. Anti-clockwise to loosen Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  5. Other option is use a large flat blade screwdriver in one of the notches and use a hammer to tap it round (like a drift). Once it has cracked off the first fraction, the mole grips should work. Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  6. i used pair of mole grips with a piece of rag to protect the nut and bodywork.
  7. I did this tutorial some time ago on my old Mk1 GS300 Sport. The details are probably the same though, so it may help....
  8. The antenna is built into the rear screen. Probably worth checking for any scratches or bad connections and/or earths on the element causing a bad circuit.
  9. Not a complicated process other than needed a good foot pump or compressed air to help expel the pistons. BiggRed4u on eBay do seal kits for the calipers. They are also pretty good direct for reconditioned calipers.
  10. You'll still need the wobble nuts though. Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  11. There are lots of wobble nuts for sale that cover the range, so that change isn't an issue. The bore (and offset as also mentioned) are additional factors though. Adaptor plates make offset even more of an issue. Probably also worth considering the insurance implications, as non-factory wheels cause problems, they may refuse insurance completely with wobble nuts or adaptors. Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  12. Wobble/variation bolts would probably do the job. But the centre bore needs to work too. If the bore is smaller than the lexus, the wheel won't fit either (and would have to be machined to increase the bore). If the bore is bigger, you'll need spigot rings as well.

  13. Get the codes read, it will give a decent indication of where to concentrate some effort. Where are you located? Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
  14. Have you tried bridging the connections in the diagnostic socket under the bonnet as well, just in case the obd port pins under the dash are playing up? Sent from my iPhone using Lexus OC
