  1. Thanks Messi, couldn't find a 430 or 460 so bought a 300 with fsh
  2. Hi all I'm looking to purchase a lexus gs 2005 onwards. I have read a few reports about very heavy oil consumption (1l per 1000km). Some sources say this is normal others have required pistion ring replacement, although this seems to be in the USA and Australia. I have had few 3.0 Lexus before and have never needed to top up the oil between services. Also I understand that the engine uses a chain rather than a belt, are these maintenance free? Am I over thinking or would I be better off searching for a 430? I can't go for a 450h as boot is far too small. Thanks in advance
  3. I wish I knew about the key programming a couple of months ago, I ended up taking the car to an auto locksmith who reprogrammed an existing key and cut and programmed a brand new key while I waited (35 mins) for £100!
  4. I recently purchased an updated disc. http://www.satnavdvd.co.uk/lexus-25-c.asp Disc worked fine although doesn't allow destination input on the move
  5. I have already purchased an RX, thanks anyway
  6. Hi all I require the roof rack end covers (rear) both sides. I haven't seen any for sale on eBay, does anybody know of any for sale? Thanks in advance Bob
  7. HI all I am on the hunt for a Lexus RX300, series 2, 2003-2005. The car must have navigation and reversing camera, but no air suspension. Budget is £4.5k. Not fussed about colour, mileage. Would prefer one with a documented recent cambelt change. If any of you are selling or no of any good cars for sale please don't hesitate to get in touch Regards Rob
  8. Hi I have a 300 Sportcross for sale on Auto Trader, not sure what rules are with regards to posting a link on here ? Afraid only Gold Members can sell/link to their own cars Robert
  9. Thanks for bday msgs txts etc

  10. Thanks for all the birthday greetings!

  11. Thanks for the birthday messages !

  12. Hi Thanks for the advise, the issue sounds expensive. The car sold for the full asking price, with the ABS & VSC light on, looks like the new owner knew as much I did. Regards Rob
  13. Evening all I've just started the car this evening and the 'ABS' 'VSC' 'VSC OFF' lights are on. I press the VSC OFF button but the lights don't go out. Is it the dreaded brake master cylinder or just a sensor?? There is no buzzing sound, I just hear a strange sound under the bonnet and the brakes squeak a bit, the car had an MOT 2 weeks and passed though. Does any anybody know what the issue may be? Thanks in advance
  14. Hi J You might want to try www.clublexus.com is US based but I'm sure they would be able to help questions or queries you may have, www.lextasy.com is another but I'm not on a member so don't know if it's any good or not Regards Rob
  15. I replaced the back box with a genuine Lexus unit but guess what, some how there is now a hole on the downpipe! The car sounds terrible! I will do what I should have done before and will purchase a full stainless steel system, but I don't really want to just throw away the new back box as it's less than a month old. What's a good price for these second hand? I've looked on ebay, can't find any guide prices, and other sources gumtree etc don't list them either Regards Rob
