  1. FREE IS250 Roof Rack

    @niloc just sent you a PM
  2. FREE IS250 Roof Rack

    @niloc a bit of a long shot but don't suppose you still have this?
  3. In case anyone is interested, I also emailed Lexus customer relations (just thought if I had an email from a Lexus email address it would be even more convincing) and got the following response: Dear James, Thank you for your email, regarding your Lexus IS headlights and driving on the continent. I can confirm that as you have HID Xenon lamps all you need to do is turn off the I-AFS. Thank you for contacting Lexus. Kind Regards Sonya Anderson-Davies Lexus Customer Services So for any other members driving in Europe it may be worth emailing customer relations to get an email from their "" email address. I did it here:
  4. Thanks Normski, much appreciated. I shall print the letter off and use that!
  5. Setting off for a drive to Germany in a couple of weeks. Do I need to buy those plastic beam deflectors for my 2007 IS250? My old Focus ST I used to have had a lever inside the headlights to adjust them. I've also read conflicting reports on the internet as to whether or not they are required for headlights with xenons/projectors which I have on mine?
  6. Heated windscreen

    Oh I know the one. Doesn't this just turn the blowers on to max demist on the windscreen? I have a similar looking button on my IS250 that does just that.
  7. Heated windscreen

    What does the button look like? I wasn't aware the CT200h came with any form of heated screen? My IS250 has one but it's just bit below the wipers basically that's all. Helps to get it started though I suppose!
  8. In my Lexus tool kit (the one with the screw driver and wheel wrench in the boot) there are two prongs that open it. I've used them/it before to update my disc.
  9. Must be as Eric just mentioned because you have a diesel.
  10. Yes that is my car in the photo. It's a 57 plate SE-L with multimedia. I assumed all had the auto recirculate feature?
  11. Your pic is too small to see but doesn't look like you have it. Here is mine - holes highlighted as red circles. The whole panel with hazard switch/clock etc comes out on mine to reveal the DVD slot. Also, I'm pretty sure I have a software eject button in the map info on the menu. This panel must be removed first of course :
  12. If you have DVD there are two hold in the front of the fascia which you can use tools (prongs) in the Lexus tool kit to remove. Behind this is the DVD slot.
  13. His wasn't ML but the sat nav unit looked the same. Just didn't have the ML logo
  14. A friend of mine had a 59 plate SE-I that was DVD based but had USB in the arm rest
