  1. I wait the 15-20 secs or so until the fast idle enters "phase 2", when the revs will drop from the initial 1500 RPM to approx 1200, before setting off. Unless there's a significant reason (frozen windscreen, mirrors) to wait any longer, you're just wasting fuel.
  2. Agreed, 19" are a better fit. Further to what Linas has mentioned, your brakes will also look ridiculously tiny behind a 20" wheel.
  3. I'd be dubious about that 300bhp figure. AFAIK, the only officially-sanctioned supercharger upgrade is the TOM's IS45 kit and that's a JDM thing, for the IS350. Plus it only boosts power by around 50bhp.
  4. Afraid not, Bob. The shape (and bulb type) of the fogs changed to a round one for MY2011.
  5. Light on dash

    The warning light is due to your brake light bulb failure. All IS200s beep when in reverse gear whether you have sensors or not. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. Centre brake light

    There's a bulb in there. One of these; Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    What are those round things on the centre console?
  8. Centre brake light

    The shroud is just clipped into the parcel shelf. From memory, it comes out easier if you can lift the rear of the shroud on both sides at the same time with prying tools or screwdrivers. It's actually more difficult to re-fit it as you have push down incredibly hard to seat it properly again.
  9. The badge on the engine cover is a perfect fit to replace the one on the steering wheel... That would make the "it must've just fallen off" excuse sound even more dubious to me. Does anyone own an IS where it was serviced?
  10. Ford Mustang first impressions

    They also seem to have trouble leaving car shows in one piece. [emoji2] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. F-sport and non F-sport suspension

    I'm pretty sure the weight difference between each variant (V6, turbo or hybrid) is minimal according to Lexus figures - like 10kg or so. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. TRC/SNOW Buttons

    Yes, the panel comes out easily. Just grab it from underneath and give it a pull.
  13. It would seem as long as the wheels are from any Lexus, that's good enough. My wheels aren't standard but they are Lexus wheels (off an IS-F) and I was offered the opportunity of buying the extended warranty when my car was last serviced. (Of course they may have overlooked that fact in order for me to sign up....)
  14. TRC/SNOW Buttons

    Yes, that's the factory layout but a common mod is to swap the positions of the TRC button with the R/H heated seat button. Like so.. Just push the switches out from behind, disconnect the cable and re-fit them in the new location.
  15. Best polish?

    I'd be surprised if anything apart from the tailpipes were real chrome. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  16. Illuminated Door Sills

    I keep looking for these (one of mine is damaged) - I would probably pay £75 plus shipping and tax but they're $160/£125 each. Even the breakers want decent money for them. Looks like the price has gone up since I bought mine. Import duty was about another £40 or so. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  17. Illuminated Door Sills

    Each. The two part numbers are for left and right side.
  18. Illuminated Door Sills

    I'm afraid I don't, but found this one on google. As you can see, they look pretty-much the same as the OEM scuff plates. The illuminated one is at the front.
  19. Illuminated Door Sills

    Got mine from a couple of years ago. They were around £75 each (plus shipping & import duty) Part # 67910-53030-C0 67920-53030-C0
  20. How old? How many miles? Lexus warranty is probably more comprehensive, but I'm inclined to say you won't need one and that it'll be money wasted. The service plan doesn't actually save you any money but it does mean you can pay monthly without the one-off bill when service time comes around.
  21. TRC/SNOW Buttons

    It wasn't illuminated on my old IS200. You could pull it out and trade positions with the r/h heated seat switch so it's in the middle for a nice symmetrical look.
  22. Best polish?

    Haha, maybe... If the scratches and defects are only minor then Autoglym SRP should be fine if you're applying by hand. It has barely any "cut" at all so it's extremely safe for soft paint. Use an applicator like THIS for best results.
  23. Hardwiring Dash cam

    Is it a SanDisk card? I've seen reports of them being dodgy in dashcams. Plus it's possibly a fake card. I had the same issue with one I bought from eBay. Replaced it with a Samsung one I bought in the High street and problem gone. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  24. Will this routine work well?

    Is it not just the case you have a colour where dust is always going to be highly-visible, regardless of LSP?
