  1. £1,300 seems pretty cheap no? I would've expected the cost to be 2 - 3 k? And the car looks great btw!
  2. BoJo Interior removal tools make the job easy, - without damage... - you can get that panel off easily in a matter of seconds :)
  3. Four different budget tyres, dear oh dear. That really does reflect the owners attitude towards the car. They'll be loads of others :)
  4. That's a fantastic price - who was you buying it from?
  5. How about a stainless steel job? This one is very quiet and normal speeds, but has a V8 barble when you put your foot down https://www.dcperformance.co.uk/uprated/fox-exhaust-backboxes/lexus/ls-430.html
  6. Are you sure your speakers were blown, and didn't just need rubber glueing around the cone? I did my subwoofer, - but I think the speakers in the door cards need the same treatment now.... - sure there's a tutorial for that around here somewhere..
  7. I haven't had any trouble parking it, - supermarkets are easy as apple tart. I do however try to avoid multi stories where possible, I've only visited a couple since owning a 430 and they were no trouble, but I can see that the smaller car parks definitely would be difficult! Parking is very easy with the front and rear sensors and camera. Bottom line is that I haven't found the size of the car to be problematic at all. I've had no door dings either (touch wood) - so far!
  8. That does look in gorgeous condition. Think back 20 years and 20k usually meant that your car was approaching retirement :)
  9. As you know, the brightness dial adjusts both the instrument panel and all the surrounding cockpit switches as one. Personally I find this annoying as the instrument panel is so much brighter than the switches, - so the switch lights end up appearing very dull :( The girlfriend's idea; place a piece of tinted film on the instrument panel. Simple but effective; I can now turn up the brightness to almost max and my instrument panel doesn't blind me, - which means that all my cockpit switches are nicely illuminated :)
  10. Thanks for sharing your experience, everyone! :)
  11. This is stone cold. Unfortunately I do not have any coolant left - i've just ordered some. I may top it up a little with water for the journey later whilst I wait for it to arrive... hope it'll be okay?
  12. I have never noticed this before, - I have an important journey to do later which I cannot miss, - 150 mile round trip - so had me worried...
  13. Just went to top up my screen wash and I noticed that my coolant level looked low. Is this normal (see attached)?? Looks empty? Wasn't that long since it was changed and the car is driving fine...?
  14. I had the VSC light come on when my LPG run out and it switched to petrol. INdependent garage just swtiched it off again (they told me that it was the lambda sensor in the exhaust which triggered it (for whatever reason)) and off it stayed for about 4 months.... then it came on again, - I just left it, and soon after I put a little petrol in, - it went off again, - that was about 3 months ago - and it's not come back. Don't know if that's any help at all, but it's all I can offer!
  15. Interesting, - is the quality (I'm thinking of the FM signal) degraded at all, or is it as clear as CD for eg?
