  1. The nishokku wheels were already fitted to my car when I bought it and I love them, I preferred them to those fitted to the F sport at the time, they are always commented on. I am on my second set however as last year they were replaced by Lexus when the outer coating appeared to be peeling. One year on and the peeling has started again, I will mention it at the up and coming service but don't expect anything from Lexus now the car is out of warranty.
  2. Just received my recall notice, looking to include it with its next major service due next month. Just baulking at the price of the service!
  3. Glad it's sorted, Lexus infotainment is not the most intuitive.
  4. Hi Casa, Mine has the hotspot wifi fitted but I thought the aerials are internal to the unit, don't use it but my dab is fine in good signal areas. Sounds like someone may have fitted an extra dab aerial to the windscreen to try and get better reception. Maybe the existing aerial has been disconnected.
  5. Scroll down in general to find software update, software info is underneath it
  6. Try menu, setup, navigation, connected service. Scroll down to change username and password. Think I had to do this when deleting the previous drivers details to allow me to access my portal account. If you have the Nav manual its on p393
  7. Do we get informed by Lexus about the recall or are we dependant on this forum for the information as I just checked and mine is also subject to it.
  8. Hi Pete i bought a dab radio for my wife's old fiat a year or so ago from halfords and bought an fm / dab adaptor with it to use with the existing roof aerial. This worked fine and we were totally satisfied until the station we listen to was removed from the local transmitter and we lost reception. They do need a power supply to the blue wire to work, and I can't seem to see them on halfords web site but they are on Amazon or specialist car audio stores. hope this helps Bob
  9. How do they check this at the mot, do they just check the warning lamp. If so John's solution would be ideal
  10. Hi Gerry I think I went into the audio settings, manual tab (not presets) found the channel required and select it so it is playing, Went back to presets select the position you want it and hold the controller down a couple of seconds to save it. Hope this helps
  11. With all the technology in the car it would have been good to have a display of the pressure for each tyre. This would show up a possible puncture which everyone worrys about or just normal leakage and / or cold temperatures. Mine came on when I was about to travel home a couple of weeks ago late at night, tyres looked OK and after a few miles it went off, the next day I checked them all and just reinflated to 36 psi as they were all around 32.
  12. Some dealers may be better than others I suppose. I got my spare after clumsily snapping off a tyre valve topping up a tyre at a garage. My dealer fitted a new sensor for free claiming it under warranty, my nisshoku wheels had also started to degrade after less then two years and they have just exchanged all four wheels under warranty again. So I've been very pleased with the dealer.
  13. Bought mine from local main dealer (Bolton) and it cost me £140 for wheel and tyre, bought a cover from eBay for about £10 and just leave it the boot. Takes up a bit of space but not an inconvenience really.
  14. Hi Geoff, Just got back from a trip out and saw your reply. I've added the link below not sure if it will work but if you search for spare tyre cover you should find it. I bought it from craftsales ltd and it was really quick delivery. The bag is ok for £9.99 plus £2.18 postage it is zipped and is the kind of material you find in strong shopping bags. I went for the XXL because the smaller ones looked a bit too small for a 17" wheel and due to the depth it may even take the 18" that is removed from the car in the event of a puncture. Bob
  15. Mine is 17", I think this is standard for spacesavers with large wheel sizes.I haven't seen too many 18". I believe they are limited to 50mph, I know I would be very cautious with it fitted. I also bought a cover off ebay for £12.
