  1. Evening Gentlemen, and Ladies, have noticed a few comments about underbody corrosion on RX models, notably RX450h items like fuel filler pipes. Would using Hammerite paint be a solution? They say it can be painted directly on to rust? Just an idle thought.
  2. Hi David, it was probably the simplest of all the bulbs to change, I bought Osram bulbs from Amazon, not the cheapest but i guessed they may last longer than unbranded bulbs? Some of the bulbs were really difficult to change, the worst being the rear passenger bulb! Changed to full LED for interior, left all external bulbs apart from reverse lights alone. Number plate were originally LED. Car does look lovely at night when opening doors....As you get older you do appreciate the strongest clearest light you can find.
  3. I changed my reversing lights to LED and there was a huge improvement.
  4. Thanks Rayaan, I'll pop over tomorrow and collect them. 4 Brand new wheels and Dunlop Sportmaxx for £350 was a good deal.
  5. Eamonn, can I ask a question re your wheels, are these from the newer model, the reason I ask is someone is selling a set with new Dunlops tyres at a good price, I have a 2010 model, would they fit? Extra rubber would also improve the ride?
  6. That was good of you to take the trouble to clean it up and post for us to see what was involved. Wonder if painting with Hammerite would help????? Ed
  7. I have a 2010 SEi and it certainly has the hill hold feature. It should work just as Rayaan described. HTH
  8. Thanks a lot Rayaans, spot on as always
  9. Rayaans, I was given 22, Correct and 26", Is that correct, i thought they were closer to 25" on the car? What did you get for the drivers side? Thanks Ed
  10. http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/lexus/rx400h-2005/?section=good Honest John of the Daily Telegraph certainly loves the car....
  11. I pondered this too before going the hybrid route but I learnt the technology is actually very impressive and reliable. Whilst there must be some degree of wear on the batteries, all batteries will degrade, there appear to have been very few cases of battery failure. Think of all the Prius taxis with 400K miles still on original batteries. Unless going for hyper mile examples or very poorly maintained cars that's not an area of concern. If you find a well cared for example I would snap it up. The main areas of concern seem to be brakes and suspension, and even then no worse than any other manufacturer. Good luck and good hunting
  12. Don't need them yet however as OEM I have ordered a pair, £27.84 with the 30% discount. Cheers Rayaans
  13. My father used to call the television at home the 'Idiot's Lantern'. I guess that's a fair comparison between the inbuilt Sat Nav and the latest updated phone apps you can get now. I do however like the inbuilt nav for showing me the upcoming bends and twist roads on unfamiliar stretches! I'm getting a bit of a fuelly freak and enjoy the mpg bar charts! I just need to ensure it doesn't turn me into Miss Dasiy....
  14. Happy Easter everyone from a rain soaked West of Scotland!
  15. That's a good point well made! Then again, if you knew my wife........
