  1. Had mine serviced last month, Lexus VSC says brake pads have 5mm front and 8mm rear remaining but no mention of the discs, but they looked in pretty good condition to me. Done 23k miles, I'd get a second opinion from a trusted mechanic to make sure they do need changing.
  2. Yes I'm sure they can arrange that if requested.
  3. Will be the second time I'll be using them to source a car from Japan, iirc they charge a fee to get the car registered on the road. Which includes all the dock collection, All necessary conversion for clock, speedo and rear fog, IVA test, registration and MOT plates etc, basically you just get down and drive your car away.
  4. Speaking to Darren at Torque GT for some advice, they import cars and make them Road legal in the UK.
  5. Yep ordered mine on 17th Jan and the estimated delivery is end of april so about 3 months of wait.
  6. AVS is only available on the IS300H in F-Sport/premier pack as per the brochure.
  7. This is the exact reason why I've ordered one for the wife. Looked at the usual Diesel BMW, Audi, Mercs, but decided to stick to the IS200t. It's reliable, well built, rare, petrol with auto, all the toys you'd ever need with an awesome look. 😎
  8. Mine under direct sunlight.
  9. The ABS module failed on my wifes Honda Jazz back in 2015, basically i got a mechanic to remove the unit and sent it off to a company called ECU Testing for rebuild. Costs were £244 inc shipping and the turn around time was about 5 days from when they have received your unit, also it comes with lifetime warranty too. Once the refurbed unit is back the mechanic refitted and bleed the whole system and its been as good as new. Give them a call and see if they can help.
  10. For those who does their own oil changes, what oil do you use on the ISF. Been looking around at engine oils for my 60k mile service, Shell Helix Ultra seems very well priced. Went on the shell website put my reg number in and they recommend the Helix Ultra Professional AG. Works out about £35 for 10 litres from euro carparts, not bad for a well branded oil, so what are peoples thought on this oil.
  11. Very well discounted indeed, do you reckon will there be more discounts to be had on this?
  12. I think you're correct, I do recall the cars I've seen with the mud flaps on also have the rear bumper protector and rubber floor mats in the boot.
  13. For some reason front and rear mud flaps are fitted as standard to the facelift, make the car look cheap imo. Mine will be coming off when it arrives.
  14. Just had an even better quote from my local dealer at £325 + £300 for the 8 spark plugs so works out about £625 inc vat. i did double check with the lovely lady to make sure it's the 60k+ major service for the ISF, brake fluid and rear diff oil are also inclusive. Just need to pop down to checkout the dealership and confirm what they'll do on the service.
  15. Doesn't sound too bad then. As it's the wife's car and being a brand new purchase, we'll be keeping the car a long while if it stays mechanically sound which I'm 100% sure it will, possibly 5 years plus.
