  1. Does anyone have any experience of these alloy wheel protectors? Any comments/thought will be gratefully rteceived.
  2. Does anyone have any experience/comments etc about these please?
  3. Thanks Dinho, I thought I WAS in the IS250 section.
  4. Thank you all. I have decide to go with the "attempt resurrection" method. I have asked my local sole owner garage who has said he should be able to improve them for me. I do not have any tools, equipment or energy. I will take the car to him next Tuesday and in the meantime will dose the trims with WD40 to help the corrosion removal process.
  5. Thank you very much Very helpful. Is measurement I need the diameter of the trim that is on the car or another measurement. Apologies for my complete ignorance of all things mechanical. Thanks to all

  7. Thank you very much I contacted my local Lexus dealer today who quoted me £157.35 for a pair which is silly. Does anyone know what size I need and whether I can buy decent quality trims here in the UK? Thanks to all
  8. Hi Gang Where can I get a pair of exhaust trims for my 2010 Is 250 se? Thanks all
  9. Thank you Nemesis
  10. Thank you very much. I have sent them an email.
  11. Thank you very much and I expected this to be the case. Many years ago I drove an Escort which had a heated windscreen and I thought it was marvellous. I have often wondered why I have never seen such a useful feature on other cars.
  12. Hello again I have noticed that My 2007 IS 250 SE has a device called a "Windshield Wiper De-Icer" which is described on page 194 of my owner's manual. The description of what this actually does is not very clear (at least to me.) Will using this clear ice off the entire windshield or just free up the wiper arms if they become inoperative due to freezing solid? Again apologies for my ignorance and any info will be gratefully received. Perhaps it is just me but I find modern vehicles very complex and full of items that seem unnecessarily so . I appreciate we live in the gadget age but I have never been fascinated by such things.
  13. Hello all you clever people out there in Lexus Land. I have recently bought a 2007 IS250 SE auto and the dealer gave me a 3 month guarantee with it which will expire in February. I was also told that I can buy and extended guarantee to cover the car after this so does anyone have any advice and / or information they can give me please? Thank you
  14. Thank you wise ones. I have now located the relevant section on page 109 of my owner's manual which seems to be the size of a novel. I had been labouring under the misapprehension that the start/stop button did only that. Stand by for further enquiries
  15. Hi gang I have recently acquired a 2007 IS250 se auto which has keyless entry and other feature which I have not encountered before and , being a simple souls rather feel they are unnecessary complications. It has a start/stop button for the engine but no ignition lock. How can I use the electric features such as the hifi ,windows, mirrors etc without switching the engine on? I am sure I have just given some of you a laugh so please help
