  1. Technician must have caused it when retro fitting the parking sensors.
  2. Sounds like you didn't do your homework and assumed the car had what you wanted. Why don't you tell the dealer to hold off on the parking sensors and registering the vehicle as it will be easier to change without this done? Everyone says BMW idrive and Audi mmi is great... having had and used both they are not... I can't say Lexus is better but it's no worse. Basic BMW idrive or mmi didn't even stream music until recently. In my opinion all built in sat navs are poor compared to goole maps which is by far better. The standard sound quality in all Lexus systems is comparable to all other manufacturers premium systems.
  3. It's a simple basic repair. Any body shop would do this repair in their sleep. I'd agree Lexus will just send it out. Be fair on the guy. I'd recommended autorestore www.autorestore.co.uk I know for a fact they do a great job with full quality guarantee.
  4. The damage is very minor, looks worse than it is. Easy to repair and no need for new bumper or sensor. The bad look would be taken off by an alcohol wipe. Bread and butter repair for any repairer. Try Auto restore part of the Autoglass group they do great work.
  5. I made the jump last week from IS300h to GS300h. The GS is absolutely fantastic, a lot more comfortable and surprisingly economical despite extra weight. The comfort levels are terrific. I really liked the IS but I now love the GS.
  6. Turn on the heated seats to harden and try use a strong suction vacuum cleaner??
  7. Looks great enjoy. I make the move from a 2014 IS300h to a new GS300h on Wednesday. I went for black with rich cream interior.
  8. Price from Ireland dealers can be expensive. You can get UK postage to Ireland by using this https://addresspal.anpost.ie
  9. Do us all a favour Ganzoom sell the Lexus and stop moaning on this forum about how bad Lexus cars are compared to an EV. Take 2 LEAF's out of Nissans book
  10. Great to see Toyota working on some great things. Would be great to see the hybrid advances in next generation IS & GS http://blog.toyota.co.uk/toyota-announces-development-new-tnga-based-powertrains
  11. If the windscreen has been replaced a new gel pad should have been fitted to the rain sensor. This could explain why the sensor isn't working correctly. If this is not the issue then go back to Lexus and get the sensor replaced under warranty.
  12. I had this issue and was resolved when discs and pads were changed at last service at around 80k. No repeat of this since then.
  13. Like any car driven at high speed mph suffers. I had a newish BMW 520d Se last week when I had my IS in for service. I had for 2 days did in excess of 400miles I averaged 37mpg and drove as I do normally. I hated the BMW, noisy, jerky gear change in traffic. Low quality leather and over all I didn't enjoy and for all the infotainment issues said about Lexus the BMW nav was poor and no music streaming from phone. Lexus IS is night and day ahead of a Volvo S40. The brakes at first can be a bit strange but it's the regenerative braking. However they should not be noisy. For a 220bhp car 45 mpg is very good. If you want high mpg you need to buy a 1.6 boring German diesel with manual transmission.
  14. Edited just for you John, should be more careful with my wording😄
  15. If you have a button on your trouser back pocket this can cause excessive wear on seat. Stupid I know and seats should be more durable, the the button can catch the seat on entry and exit.
