  1. My mechanic saved the day - thanks Paul at Toyotatech in Guildford 07833 456051 He had a spare glass from (I think) an IS200 which he supplied and fitted for £20. So no anti-glare or heating but it will do for now while I track down an all-singing IS300 mirror. So, the Sportcross has a new MOT and I'm looking forward to driving it up to North Norfolk for a few days this weekend. I've just worked out that Toyotatech did the 60,000 mile service, including new spark plugs and MOT, for only a little bit more than Lexus wanted for a new mirror glass!!
  2. I was quoted £250-ish today! The glass was smashed by a man in lycra yesterday and I've got the MOT tomorrow - so it's the cheap stick-on solution for now. But I dearly want to replace it with the correct anti-glare glass. But not at £250.... So I'll be trawling my local scrappies over the coming weeks. Good luck.
  3. Thanks Jomo. Have sent a message via Facebook as suggested.
  4. Ashamed to say it took me until today to pluck up the courage to change the fuse! (after guessing it was labelled TV). It now works beautifully! But the map data DVD is dated 2002. How easy it is to change/ upgrade? Any recommendations where to get the correct up to date DVD? Thanks, as always, for your answers. Cheers.
  5. Hi Farl I haven't found a beige one yet but there's a guy on eBay who says he's got black luggage covers for £60 + postage or you can pick up in Birmingham, His number is 07866104047. Hope this helps! William
  6. Hi Does anyone have a IS300 Sportcross Luggage Load Cover I could buy? Ideally to match the beige trim of my car, but black would be fine too. Is there a Lexus specialist breaker? I've tried but nothing's come up yet. Thanks William
  7. Thanks - I'll take a look in the daylight. A couple of days ago I pulled the screen up into its 'on' position (without removing the tab you refer to) but still no good. My next step I think is to pull the fuses out one by one as i don't know which is for the sat nav. Did 300 mile round trip to Somerset today - fantastic car! Cheers Will
  8. Thanks - that's great!
  9. Hi Jomo Yes - the stereo is still fitted: 6cd autochanger, cassette and AM/FM. Sounds great! Just done 400 mile round trip and really pleased with the car. I've found a manual online But I can't get started as the sat nav doesn't come on. It doesn't flip up/down when you press the switch, nor does the screen come on. May be a fuse? I've studied the diagrams and I can't see a fuse dedicated to the SatNav and everything else is working fine! Do you know which fuse number it might be? Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks!
  10. Hi I have one master key that seems to do everything it should - but no spare. Where's the best palce to get a spare key? Thanks William
  11. Hi I'm new to Lexus ownership and only picked up my '03 IS300 SportCross yesterday. I know I'm going to have a few questions but I guess it's best to post each question separately. Looking forward to chatting with you all over the coming months. First issue - can't get the SatNav switched on and don't have a manual to go with it. It's the type that flips up on the top of the dash and says "GPS Voice Navigation System" on it. I can't even get it to flip up pressing the open/close button. Can anyone help me with a link to a user manual so i can at least read what it should do?! Thanks. William
