  1. Thanks. I have the Bosch ones fitted which ais e a big improvement over the cheap one that were on before. I'll see how they do, and may go back to the hybrid, but would have to buy the whole wiper and holder as my car has been changed over. On another note I do feel the drivers wiper doesn't come far enough up to the right on its sweep and I wonder if it sits too low down. Can anyone compare my pics of where the wipers sit with theirs?
  2. Just collected my 'new' RX450H and very pleased with it. Although it's an older car it drives well. However the wipers were changed by the previous owner to aftermarket flat blades which do nothing to shift the water. The drivers side one drags in the centre, but the lower end flaps around, making noise but doing nothing. The passenger side is ok. I'll swap them today for Bosch Aeros as I can get these from the local Halfords. However, what is the thought about these versus the original style Lexus wipers? I had an IS250 before with the Lexus hybrid wipers and at best I'd say they were ok. Never really good in heavy rain. Any advice how to stop it dragging, but make the lower part connect?

    No, I feel the same way. I've also had a comprehensive look at the other hybrids out there in this size, as I'll never buy a diesel again. Nothing came close, in terms of price, kit and towing ability.

    Collecting on Friday, all being well. Lexus Stockport have put it through the bodyshop for some parking scrapes to the passenger door, re dyed the drivers seat, serviced, and will come with 12 months warranty, breakdown etc. not bad for an 8 year old car with 90k on it.

    Hi Sold the car easily and got considerably more than what the dealers had offers. Happy with the price and I hope the buyer is happy too.

    I though it was the best combination as well and was very lucky in finding one nearby. I'm still in two minds as to whether to put it at £4500. Got to say the trade in offer was very poor (which I expected) but £2200 from the dealer was very low indeed. My wife had a similar shock recently when looking at swapping her much newer high spec Renault Megane for an electric Zoe. The dealers quotes were 50% less than what I am certain I can get for it privately. Getting a good price for mine will substantially reduce the finance, maybe hence the low offer?

    Strange it doesn't show, but I am a gold member. Must email admin. what price do you think it should be up for?
  8. Thanks, we're looking forward to it. Like you, I'll be glad just to get the bike in the back without roof bars, but I am planning a tow bar and demountable rack. The guys at Stockport are good and have been looking after this one for a few years, so there should be no surprises at all. One thing I couldn't find, does it have a USB port anywhere for plugging a flash drive into?
  9. Sadly parting with my IS250 SEL due to upsizing to an RX450. The IS250 is in great condition, available to view and free of finance. IS250 SEL Petrol. 2006 with 125,9000 miles on it. Full Lexus and Indy history, last serviced at Lexus Stockport. 4 new Avon tyres recently fitted all round. Front and rear bumpers recently touched up. The car is blue with oak leather. The car is a two owner, the first owner has it for 10 years and looked after as I have done. It has the full standard SEL spec, which includes: Mark Levinson Audio, reversing camera and full parking sensors, electric heated and cooled memory seats, 6 disc autochanger, Bluetooth. Leather is in excellent condition, service and MOT due in October. Happy to consider test drives with ID, and open to sensible offers. Please PM through here in the first instance. £3,995 Ono.
  10. Thanks for all the advice. I've just put a deposit on this, a 2009 SE I Nav. Although it's got 90k on, it's been well looked after and fully serviced by my local dealer, so I'm hoping it will be a trouble free upgrade for the next few years. Be a shame to get rid of the IS250 though! Anyone interested?
  11. Thanks for all the advice. I'm now off to test drive a 2009 SEI so I'll see what I think of the standard ride. I need to check that I'm not giving up anything important from the SEL spec either.
  12. Thanks for all the advice. I'm not put off, my 125k IS drives like a two year old car and pulls like a train. Getting an older RX is not really a worry. I just have to try and find some nice ones to test drive.
  13. Thanks for such a detailed reply. It will take some time, especially as the three I was going to look at tomorrow at Lexus Stoke have all been sold in 48 hours!
  14. Thanks, are there problems then?
