  1. I believe it hooks up to any Bluetooth phone see https://www.cnet.com/uk/products/blackberry-music-gateway/review/ for more details
  2. Wow never thought of using the tape deck with Bluetooth, let us know if it works
  3. Just been out to the car and tried audio from YouTube and it works fine
  4. Not trying to teach a granny how to suck eggs, but are you driving it in sports mode?
  5. Nice colour, who did the wrap for you?
  6. I realise this topic has had a wide range of discussion for pre 2010 models, but I thought I would throw my penny worth in. Having reviewed many systems that involved taking apart the dash, which I was loath to do, I have just finished installing a BlackBerry Music Gateway Bluetooth Audio Adapter. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182346156646?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Inside the arm rest is a 12v supply and a 3.5mm audio jack: You need to buy a 12v mini USB like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-2-Port-Mini-Bullet-Universal-Dual-USB-Car-Charger-Adapter-5V-2-1A-1A-/391774226811?hash=item5b3790497b:g:bN4AAOSw~y9ZCoo4 And most important a ground loop isolator like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272606832493?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Plug the USB adapter into the 12v socket Use the supplied blackberry USB to mini USB cable for power Plug the supplied blackberry 3.5 jack cable into the blackberry unit Plug the other end into the ground loop isolator And then plug the ground loop isolator 3.5mm jack into the aux port Turn on the ignition and pair your phone to the blackberry Select the Aux system from the disc/aux button Start music on your phone and hey presto it works like a charm, all your music through the wonderful Lexus speakers. The system stops when you turn the ignition off and auto starts when you put the ignition back on. Also if you have a virtual assistant like the iPhone Siri, by holding the home button down you can tell it to start whatever Album/artist/track you want and it will play that for you, and will shuffle, pause the music etc For a demo watch
  7. When I bought it from Lexus Manchester they said it maybe the only AWD 460 SE-L in the U.K. but that could have been a tempter to get me to buy it. Anyhow whatever it maybe, the car is amazing and now it's wrapped it should protect it for some years.
  8. As I said: from £1,300 that's for the outside of the car, each door shut etc costs an additional £100 Venom wraps are a small business and as yet do not charge VAT
  9. 3M state 7 years. But given the fact that the car is garaged and covered, it's probably as long as a piece of string
  10. The car is the same just a different number plate. Wrapping is applying a vinyl to the car instead of re painting. Go to: www.3m.co.uk/car-wrapping this will give you all the information you need.
  11. Venom Wraps did it cost from £1,300 although I had all the doors inside the bonnet, boot etc done.
  12. Sorry, photos deleted and re uploaded, try again
  13. All Wheel Drive 460 SE-L: Couldn't think of any another car I wanted so to feel like a have a new car I had it wrapped from original silver to dark blue. its growing on me.
  14. Engine Noise At Startup

    Hi, I currently have a LS430, having just got rid off a 07 GS450H that had the problem with the VVTI gears. The purpose of my blogging this issue is that I was about to buy a 07 LS460 when I found that owners were having the same problem. My car stands idle for long periods of a time and I don't want it to sound like a tractor when it starts. Here is a link to my video of the noise. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jf2cdr7m4lp8vza/Engine_Noise_At_Startup.mp4
