  1. I've no idea where you live, but my brother in law had his GS450h centre section fixed here for less than half of what you've been quoted :- http://xtremestainless.co.uk/ They also sorted the equivalent section on my wife's Volvo S40 2.4 a few years ago, and it's still going strong. Hope this helps! Brian.
  2. FWIW, I don't think they are just online, I saw them in our local Aldi branch yesterday.
  3. I found it difficult to do this job properly, because I couldn't reach it all! These are on sale in Aldi at the moment:- https://www.aldi.co.uk/autoxs-car-windscreen-cleaning-set/p/095578196588500 They are £2.99, I bought one last year and they make the job a doddle in my opinion. Hope that this helps somebody! Regards, Brian.
  4. That may be so, but one day Gus might decide to "identify" as a she.... ☺
  5. Plus one for hybrid, agree with all that's been said. Get a tidy one with Lexus history, you'll never look back. But do consider the small boot for the size of the car, other than that it's all positive IMO. Brian.
  6. FWIW, although I didn't buy my GS450h from them, Lexus Stoke have looked after it for the last 2+ years. This is for servicing through their service plan scheme including MOTs; Lexus warranty work; non warranty work such as the dreaded rear exhaust section; buying parts such as brake discs and pads etc, and I have to say I cannot fault them. Not even once, not in any respect about anything whatsoever. And believe me, I am as fussy as it gets, I'm a lifelong petrolhead and I've had many car brands of all types in my lifetime; and I am happy to confirm to you that in my total experience with them that Lexus Stoke customer service, care and attitude beats every other brand I've had by a very long mile. I hope you thoroughly enjoy your new car, and I'm certain that you will. As I say, FWIW! Best wishes, Brian.
  7. Brake pads

    When I bought my GS450h front discs & pads, Lexus Birmingham were selling them from their Ebay shop for £175 delivered. I told my local Lexus main dealer parts manager the Birmingham price but said I'd rather buy from him so he did them for £170, collected from from the local dealer. This was earlier this year I think, maybe the end of last year. Just my opinion, but I'd much rather have the real thing rather than aftermarket stuff. Always worth asking, you've everything to gain and nothing to lose!
  8. The intelligent way to stop the seatbelt gong chiming is to fasten the bloody seatbelt.
  9. That's because they are all here. I have one, my nephew has one, and my brother-in-law has one too! Brian.
