  1. Thanks for all advice. I forgot to mention that I only bought the car 3 months ago and not from a Lexus dealer. The guarantee I have been offered is not therefore underwritten by Lexus but some other company that deals in these things.
  2. Hi all I bought my 2007 Is 250 a few months ago and it came with a 3 month guarantee from the dealer with an option to buy a further 12 month warranty when the 3 month one expires (25/2/17.) Cost is £193 Car has done 49k,I only do about 5k a year and car has good service history so is it worth buying a further guarantee? I appreciate these are limited and not like a guarantee you would get with a new vehicle. All comments and thought would be gratefully receive as always
  3. Have unpacked Denso wipers and they are good. Made in Japan.......I love to read those words.
  4. Thanks to Normski for steering me to the right area. Have put it in my favourites so hopefully no more confusion.
  5. Densos have arrived from Carparts4less. Haven't opened them yet but very inpressed with speed of delivery and price so thanks to all who helped. I had been using Bosch Aeroflat Twins on my previous IS200 and found them very good. I was quite surprised when I noticed the difference between the blades on my IS200 and those on my IS250.
  6. Thank you for your help. I was under the impression (evidently mistaken) that I was in the right area. I will move to the correct section. I am happy to admit that I have little understanding of cars in general and Lexus in particular which means I often seek guidance and opinions from other vastly more knowledgeable members. I am now somewhat stricken in years and am often bemused by the level of complexity of modern vehicles. So different from my first car (1966 MGB Roadster.)Hopefully if I follow your advice I will be directing my questions to a more relevant audience.
  7. Please accept my profound apologies and direct me to the correct section. I regret my error and the resulting inconvenience.
  8. Just another stupid question. It is definitely the Densos 20" and 22" inch I need for 2007 IS250? Thanks again
  9. Thanks to all and it looks like the Denso OEM are the ones to go with.
  10. Thank you all very much. The Denso blades seem very similar to my existing ones. What does OEM mean please? Thanks again for taking the time to reply. Yours ignorantly
  11. Hi to all out there in Lexus land. The blades on my IS 250 need replacing and on examing the fitting etc it seems that the wiper blades have some sort of special cover and the whole assembly clips on to the wiper arms as normal. Are these some type of special Lexus Blades which need Lexus replacements to preserve the appearance of the car or is it possible to buy other (cheaper) brands? All thoughts and advice will be gratefully received
  12. Hello all I have recently swapped my 2002 IS200 for a 2007 IS250 and have got an annoying "buzzy rattle" which seems to be coming rom the central area of the dashboard. Anybody had any similar experiences with rattles etc? I am a bit miffed about this as my IS250 was completely rattle/buzz free.
  13. Does anyone have any experience of these alloy wheel protectors? Any comments/thought will be gratefully rteceived.
  14. Does anyone have any experience/comments etc about these please?
  15. Thanks Dinho, I thought I WAS in the IS250 section.
