  1. I have seen oil on plugs of another car. I thought it is rocker cover gasket and replaced it twice with no joy. Still oil on threads. Do this, start the car, carefully undo the oil fill hole with a rag. Does air come out of it?
  2. dougie The body work and paint people are cons unless you find a skillful person. How do you find the right person... I dont know and I am trying to find one. Happy to pay 100 or 200 more than average asking price. I don't haggle with artist.
  3. Linas Isn't the extra speaker a sub woofer and the big difference is ML has a stand alone amp in the back. Amp not only delivers more power but provided better audio quality and powers the sub. So I expect to hear more bass. Standard headunit is underpowered. I would expect standard unit to deliver 10w per speaker and no more.
  4. Shahpor It is not about that he made a mistake. Never said IS220d is bad and can't say that as I never owned one. Well... depends really what OP wants. But what I wanted to say is that Diesel era is nearing end. You know how the older ones will get banned or higher tax in main cities. And owners of used Lexus are the ones who drive it till they break so for them it is a long term investment (i am asuming this of course). Petrol will head the same way eventually due to electric cars but we will not be alive till then.
  5. Mark L Audio is far better than Standard audio. But if you are not one of those who will pay 100s for headphones, you won't care. Just for anyone else reading this and buying IS220D, avoid diesels. They come with lots of issues, not good for enviroment, eventually you will pay higher tax and insurance, diesel price per liter will go up, your car value will go down the drain fast, all sooner than later. I think guys here should keep on preaching this like Pepsi ad.
  6. How do you get the address? I will start to store dump for the day.
  7. That's because hardly anyone complains here and 99% of people here do not care about cars. You guys are too old to care or too Americanized (if its a word).
  8. Some people just do not know how to drive. Their license should be revoked. Hitting a stationary car... That is just wrong on so many levels. They give points on silly things like over speeding... No, man get these folks out of the road who managed to make a scooby of you and the system and you handed them license, cheaper insurance.
  9. Hmm... what test is there... This is confusing. I took a theory test and practical one a few years back. So what other test is there... This system is broke!
  10. Yes I had passed the test a few years back... Standard pink color license... Provisional was the grey one... I recall insurance folks mentioning 'its less than 5 years so it is not a full UK license'. They point towards that being reason my insurnace is in 1000s range...
  11. Insurance are saying I do not have a full UK license... what does that mean... I have a UK license for a few years. What upgrade do I need to make it a full? Google is of no help. Thanks
  12. Any relationship to RPM? Check exhaust mounts and exhaust. They should all free hang from rubber mounts and you should be able to shake it. Should not be stiff. I think you know more on this subject.
  13. I had replaced steering fluid 2 years back even though service manual does not call for it. Noticed today it does it even when going backwards and forwards so it has gone worse. Couldn't drive the car today. 20170623_092554.mp4
  14. Guys Mazda 3. I heard loud screeching. Very loud and only when turning wheel to left while moving. Does not do when the car is stopped and I turn the wheel.
  15. One guy here fitted a supercharger. I jad my eye on it as well. He might know more as no use of supercharger if can't remap.
