  1. First they should measure runout of the freshly installed discs and check it with lexus tolerance. If it is off the limit hub might be dirty/rusty or damaged. if runout is fine check calliper and its mounting points on the knuckle. finally are you aware how to use new brake set for the first 100-200 miles ? As both disc are going bad maybe it is you doing something wrong :)
  2. Point is you got RC which is more on the sport side than gs so maybe there are some nice extra features :) in gs we don't even got the rev counter. Maybe in the current gs generation it also looks different but I would need to wait 2 more years for face lift models drop to the 20-30k area :)
  3. You are almost correct. There is no rev change while breaking with the gearbox manual option. Breaking is done by electric motor which is charging the battery. On "gear 5" it charging it a little bit, 4 is more and so one where "gear" is max charge. saying that there is no point to use that option for overtaking as there is no rev change. diference may occurs when battery is fully charged maybe then some conventional engine breaking I cheapening but I never tested it. above are also my observations from Gs450h I doubt it is difrent in other Lexus hybrids but I'm not sure.
  4. Looks pretty loud as muffler boxes are not too big.
  5. That car got a cvt gearbox so there are no gears how we would normally understand it. manual option is not for changing the gears but to apply fixed amount of "engine breaking". That is why you won't see any difference in the acceleration. You will have exactly same effect as pressing the breake pedal. Case is by using gearbox option you won't use conventional brakes at all.
  6. Oh yes all this what is synthetic and what is not. Now they are even more clever and selling synthetic technology oils which is old good semi synth like Shell HX7. Anyway for me Amsoil is the best - it is a little bit pricy especially in the UK but you are not changing it everyday.
  7. Steering wheel is the killer. It is very Eastern European style but if you like it just enjoy it. how does it work on the MOT if half of exhaust system is gone ? How much more insurance company charges you with all those mods ? If I got £30 more just the rear tints you must be paying doub,e at least :)
  8. Me too me too - I also got one and yes post facelift models looks way better plus Cassette deck is gone + refreshed interface + hdd + Bluetooth etc
  9. In GS450h from 2010 clock is adjusted by GPS but you must manually enable/disable "Daylight saving time" to move +/- 1h in chosen time zone.
  10. Are you sure you mean Brake assist ? As far I'm aware it is always on like abs and you can't easy switch it off. maybe you mean PCS but this one should be also on by default at least it was in my previous honda were it was called cmbs.
  11. Denso is just manufacturer maybe fited in factory but as long other parameters like gap, temperature, material, thread etc are proper it will be fine. Either way cheapest iridium ngk I've seen were for £12 and uk official price is £20 so £8 sound too good. Unless they are second hand or not iridium.
  12. £50 for whole 6 ? Where you have found them so cheap ? In UK normally retailers like to charge £20 per one, if you will search abroad you can found them at £12-13 but £8 area is something new. I'm due to change mine soon too so if you got nice source you can share that would be nice to know.
  13. I got both PWR and Sport. As for adaptive lights - I can see how they move on the curvy roads and it is not so subtle.
  14. If I were you I would just take 1 or 2 out and check them - you would notice if they got 60k or 90k. At 90 you would probably even got some misfires or oil level going up :) Anyway enjoy the car!
