    IS200 Sport
  1. I thought I would pay my respects before I depart from this forum. 3rd party was at fault- back end was smashed. Boot, exhaust, trd bumper- gone. Waiting to be paid out now. I've recently registered as a new member on the Honda S2000 forums as I plan to buy one within a couple of weeks. The Is200 sport was my first taster of owning a RWD car and now that I move onto the Honda s2k im hoping all that experience pays off. The s2k that im looking at has no VSA (traction control) and the back end is prone to slipping out in the wet. That and the heated seats will be sorely missed! I want to say thanks to all that helped me whilst I owned the Lex. Some good guys on here. I had the car that you see to the left of this post for almost 3 years, purchased from an ex board member on these forums. We had a good time and I cant recommend the is200 enough but I think my days of Lexus are over for good. Thanks all. Goodbye. Take care.
  2. I need to drive my car tonight somewhere and just realised its started snowing again! i havent touched my lex since it started snowing last week. if you dont hear from me again, call all emergency services to look for a Y reg silver is200 stranded somewhere near watford!! (im ****ting myself taking the car out now)
  3. I had eibach springs fitted to my lexus a year ago. i didnt drop it too much as im running on 19s. ride comfort was noticibly different. I havent changed my shocks though but not sure if i would need to.... Hi mate, when you say the ride is noticibly different, what do you mean? I love the ride quality of the Lexus and dont want to ruin it too much. Just wish it wasnt so high! Thanks for all your other responces - appreciated! Even though my car had 19s when I bought the car the car looked really high like it was on stilts, especially the back wheels. I opted for Eibach springs and wacked them on. I didn't have them dropped to low. There was a big difference in ride comfort and I feel every bump on the road now. It could be because i need to change my shocks but im not too sure tbh. The car does look much better lowered and more responsive handling. I may downgrade my wheels to 18s though.

  7. Service And Mot Time

    Toyota have quoted me £280 for a full service compared to the £430 from lexus, so i might just go with Toyota. Have you heard of Jem? There saying £210 but i dont know anything about them to let them do the servicing.
  8. Service And Mot Time

    Hatfield quoted me £430 for a full service on 01 plate car (without mot). What am i doing wrong??

  10. Which Ones Do I Choose?

    I just recently fitted the new 55w HIDs - 6000k. Bought it off ebay for £60 including p&p. I've only got the one picture. i'll upload some more shortly.
  11. Dampers / Shocks

    Might be worth asking Tony at WIM about his arch rolling matey when you go to see him as it might give you enough clearance for your rims and stop any rubbing :) love to know the make of tyres as i deal in them and 2253519 arnt a uk size? intresting Originally had Kumho on the front. Now have falken fk452s- 225/35/19 on the front. 235s on the back (kumho).
  12. Loc Knowledge Meet At Wim

    Tony won't bite you know, he's actually a nice bloke Yeh, i had my geo done from him last week. He liked my car as well which was good. and i had free coffees while watching wimbledon. great stuff.
  13. Loc Knowledge Meet At Wim

    i live round the corner mate so i will be there about 0950am/10.00am I'll race you there!!
  14. Loc Knowledge Meet At Wim

    Hi guys, Put me down. Are people gonna make it there for 10am because im only in watford and i dont wanna be there if no1 else is there at 10!
  15. I've just ordered a pair of falken FK452s from camskill. I rang so many garages up and none of them could get the falkens from their dealers! i must have phoned 10 places. only camskill were the ones to have them. For under £100, there is DEFINATELY not a better tyre out there other than falken. I dunno how federals compare to the falkens but either way, im getting the falkens fitted tomorrow so ill report back on my findings later. This will be my set up now- FRONT: FALKEN FK452 225/35/19 REAR: KUMHO ECSTA SPT 235/35/19
