  1. Apologies, my previous post was meant to Gareth1902. You bought the car i looked at :) Glad you enjoy the car. It's a lot of a car for the money. It just did not feel right to me.
  2. tonyricha, have you test driven it before buying? I was in a market for Premier GS450h too. When i have tested it 2/3 weeks ago radio was not working and it had some cables behind the rear view mirror (dash cam?). And it felt like it had more miles than it had on a clock for some reason. Initial sale price was 19.7k. When i walked in to test drive it they said it is 19k. All that in mind i have tried to negotiate the price but they wont budge. My final offer was 17.750. Then they took deposit from someone else but sale fell through when buyer saw it. And they have dropped the price even more to 17.7K I hope you have negotiated a bit more off. Given all of the above - i did not want to buy even at reduced price. I might be too paranoid but never know... Hope you've got a good one. They are lovely cars. I've got myself 2012 RX 450h and already missing my GS300.
  3. Hello all, I have 2005 GS300 MK3 with 128000 miles. Since i've bought it there was some sort of 'looseness' when shifting from P to D or D to R or vice versa. After reading about oilchange in a transmission and rear diff i've decided to do it. Popped into garage and asked them to check transmission fluid if it's any good. They have looked under the bonnet and after not finding dipstick concluded that it's a reeled unit and can not be done. So i have decided to just do it my self. Changed the diff oil yesterday as it arrived first. What a difference - all the noises from the rear and the 'looseness' is gone! Car feels much tighter. Article i've read to do it: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-third-generation/662365-diy-rear-diff-oil-change-w-pics.html. I had ramps but no axle stands so ended up lowering the car, taking the rear right wheel off and topping up as needed. In summary this is what i needed: 2x Red Line 75W90 Gear Oil 946ml Fully synthetic - done a research and it is supposed to be good. - £38.00DELUXE SIPHON PUMP FLUID EXTRACTOR - a must. Saved me loads of time and made job not messy at all. - £7.0010mm Allen Key - Part of set - £4.00Car jack - had oneRamps - £5.00 - boot salePaper towels, empty bottle for old oil, oil drain pan, funnel, piece of cardboard to put underneath when working.All in all - job worth doing. Word of caution - try to undo filling plug first. As you might get stuck if you drain the fluid and can't fill it up. As you can see it is not a difficult job and it took me around 90 minutes to do. Most of the time spent jacking up the car and lowering it as i had to put rear wheels on a ramps. If you have access to the garage – a lot easier. Hope it helps, Giedrius
  4. In my books it will be a perfect excuse to buy some nice tools... Unless time is an issue, that is. Maybe pipe would be a garage job. All the others - should fairly easy. Giedrius
  5. Hi, had the same problem. used big washers. unscrewed the old retainers using pliers. they are made of aluminium. fiddly job - had jack up the car on a side i'm working on and unhook the exhaust at the very back under bumper. couple months ago i've done it. seems to be fine. both sides fallen off on mine - so check. regards, Giedrius
  6. Hi, currently have GS300 but starting to look around for somethin' more spacious - so to say. Spotted this one on a bay:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251872621449 From NI so a bit of a gamble i guess? Was looking at GS450H from NI when buying my current GS300. Was a good value for money too. Anyone has any experience, any advice on the subject what to look at? Thanks in advance. G
