  1. May to September but don't let them put you off. So long as there is a slight breeze you'll be fine.
  2. If it works, will you do mine for me please?
  3. Mine gets a weekly trip into Oban so you may be lucky
  4. Oh no, that's far too cheap!
  5. They do look good in green when clean.
  6. On a similar note, I've got a dead daddy longlegs in one of mine, no idea how it got there
  7. I replaced the front brake discs 11,000 miles ago with genuine toyota ones and after yesterdays service, the garage has said there is only 1mm left on them before they need replacing as they are at 27mm and the minimum is 26mm. I have no idea how thick they were when new but it looks like they won't be on much longer! Any guesses as to how many miles I can get for 1mm?
  8. Thanks I've just seen those figs elsewhere as well. The calipers are fine, so the discs are less than 50% worn as the actual figure is 27.2mm. I had pads fitted at the same time and they still have 9mm left on them so it looks like I've been worrying over nothing, thanks for all your help.
  9. I'm not a heavy braker by any means and there's no problem with the calipers. I don't use the car that often and maybe living on the salty west coast has had a detrimental effect.
  10. Great colour choice, it's the same as mine! There's a set of 5 alloys on eBay with starting bid of £75.00, could be a bargain for you.
  11. Out of curiosity, I haven't driven my 400 for about 3 weeks and it was left unlocked so apart from the clock what else is running in the back ground to drain the battery?
  12. Good garage

    So is this forum run as a business venture or is it here to help fellow Lexus owners? I belong to other forums and must admit that some of the rules on this one are of a very big brother mentality when it comes to selling and advertising.
  13. Good garage

    That's a good idea, I'm still looking for a good garage in Scotland.
  14. My battery is 2 years old and is a Numax Premium Silver 68Ah, and this is the first time its gone flat on me
  15. I think I need to drive it more often to stop this reoccurring
  16. The battery is pretty new, I may try leaving the key in the ignition when I know I won't be using the car for a couple of weeks and see if that makes a difference. I know I can do that at home but it is a concern if I left it at say an airport carpark for a couple of weeks and returned home to a flat battery.
  17. Scarcity of the model I reckon
  18. I have an agreement with my eldest daughter that I will give her £5 every time she sees another 400, so far she hasn't cost me a penny. I drive up and down the country afew times every year and I have only seen a couple myself!
  19. There is a guide on here somewhere as I asked the same question a while ago. Try the search thingy for airbag ecu and it should come up in the results.
  20. I had my local Toyota garage swap the airbag ecu for me. My light was on so I bought a secondhand one off eBay and it took the dealer 2 hours labour to swap over which I thought was well worth it as it is a PITA to do yourself.

    This one was at £4000 back in November and I thought I read it had lpg fitted?
  22. I had my alloys refurbished last year and they sprayed the centre caps to an exact colour match with the alloys. Best bet would be to talk to the refurbishers first.
  23. It was on ebay back in August but I cant remember how much for, its probably dropped in price as the dealer was trying it on to start with back in October so the price now is probably close to what he paid for it? Mines the same colour combination and I love it
  24. Waxoil

    I've been quoted around £500 to have mine dinitrolled which is a much better product than wax oil. I live by the sea and intend keeping my LS for many years so it's worth my while spending the money, I've already had my Hilux done and am very pleased with the results.
  25. I've just seen v250fnn on auto trader for £4000. This was for sale when I was looking to buy and it was nowhere near that price then, prices are going up for the good ones
