  1. Ive booked my wife's IS250 in for a major service this weekend at a local garage. Looking on the garage website for what's included in the service, it states change fuel filter if fitted externally from the tank. The wife's Lexus is a 2010 with 31k on the clock. I would be interested to know if the fuel filter is fitted inside the tank or outside and at what age/milage does it require changing.
  2. Thieving Gits

    I get mine for free. I just wait until dusk and pop a hoodie on and half inch the neighbours dust caps. Only joking of course but most independent auto stores sell a pack of 4 dust caps for around £1.49 or you can go to Halfords who charge a fiver a pack.
  3. 70,000 miles

    70k on a Lexus is nothing. These cars go on and on and on if serviced properly at the regular intervals. The IS300H is a superb car that does not disappoint. Go on treat yourself.
  4. I've been considering such a system myself for the IS250 for a while now. I would welcome the extra decibels as for me the car is far too quiet (great if you like that sort of thing) I love the V6 growl of the 250 but you really have to put the power down to hear it. This system sounds ideal for me and a bit more response as you say would be an added bonus.

  6. I had the same problem myself with mine. Could not do it for love nor money. I then put my 3 year old daughter in the drivers seat and she pressed a few buttons. Then hey presto, my contacts transferred 😄
  7. @Rebecca seems like you need to lay off the baked beans 😂 @Vtn2017 seriously though your problem is not normal and I'm pretty sure you will need to dip your hands into your pockets and dish out on new cats. Best get it booked into your nearest Lexus auto centre or trusted auto mechanic for a diagnosis. I'm looking forward to hearing the verdict.
  8. I would forfeit a kidney to own this car. In fact I can't think of a more desirable vehicle. Problem is I would need to hire an SAS battalion to stop it from being nicked.
  9. Absolutely stunning looking car both inside and out. Love the cream interior. Iv'e always been fond of the GS and in all honesty will probably be my next Lexus.
  10. Back in the day I used to get Kent fast road cams fitted to my hot hatches. Got an extra 35bhp from my ford escort RS2000. I wonder if these are available for the F?
  11. IS250 SE-L Newbie

    Yep there G spyders same as mine. Mine were in a dreadful state but had all 4 refurbished last year for 300 notes and they look splendid now. You really need to get the caliper pins lubes up. Trust me when they seize up they are a nightmare to free up. I ended up having to replace the housing on the rears and it wasn't cheap. Other than that it' a superb car. Enjoy 😀
  12. It will do next to nothing on an ISF. and the very small gains it produced (if any) would never be noticed. The ISF is a properly quick car as standard. Why spend a fortune in trying to make it slightly quicker. Some people are never satisfied. You can give them the moon and the sun and they would want the stars to go with it.
  13. About the same as me and the wife are getting from the IS250 during these cold winter months.
  14. Is 250 II brakes upgrade

    Why upgrade the brakes on the IS250? I just don't get it 😕 I've owned a variety of cars over the years including bmw, Mercedes, Audi, jaguar. I can say without doubt the brakes on the IS250 are probably the best I've ever experienced.
  15. Totally agree with @dutchie01 regarding the IS250. By far the best car I've ever owned. Quick off the Mark, silky smooth transmission, ultra reliable and great sounding V6 when you put the power down. Simply can not fault this car. The worst car I've ever owned is also a Lexus but this time it's the IS220D. Absolutely dreadful and very unreliable. Massive turbo lag and mismatched gearing make it a chore to drive. I've never owned a car in my life that gave me anywhere near the ball ache the diesel gave me.
