  1. Anyone with young children or Grandchildren fancy having the coolest trike in the park. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Premium-Lexx-Trike-Tricycle-Inflatable/dp/B01N8Q389E/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1489603782&sr=8-18&keywords=Lexus
  2. Lovely job. Thanks. I phoned Lexus today to see if they still do an update disc and they do. The only issue is it only goes as far as 2011 and they still want £150. Outrageous!
  3. Sorry to Graham for hijacking his thread. I've helped myself a bit here instead of relying on my friends on here. I looked at the link and I found I have a Gen 1 satnav. On the menu it says 08-09ver1west. I wasn't able to remove the disc to find the number as the DVD unit is fixed in place and right up against the framework of the boot. I need to find the number though for this page of the order process.
  4. Mine car is a gen 2 Farqui. I have no idea what gen the sat nav is.
  5. Has anyone got any links to sites where I can get an update for my 2002 GS? All the links above are for newer generations. Cheers, Bod
  6. That's great John. I didn't even know that cat cleaner existed. I'll get some tomorrow and go for thrash. Seems like a good place to start. I changed sensor 1 already. I may have to spend another £35 on another one. Lexus wanted £180 for one. LOL. Thankyou. Bod
  7. Thanks Garry. I know, it was silly really. I only left it because the sensor itself was still working when warm as only the heater element was broken. Lesson learned. Here we go again with trying to second guess a rectification path. Bod
  8. Ah ok John, which sensor should I be looking for. Here's the history. When I bought the car back in August, the CEL was on and my code reader showed 1 fault that being Bank 2 Sensor 1 oxygen sensor heating element not working. Like a numpty, I left it until now to change the sensor. I plugged the reader in to confirm I was changing the correct one, only to find I had two codes. I changed the sensor and cleared the codes and started up and the CEL stayed off. Then after 10 miles today the CEL came on again with code P0430. Bod.
  9. I have the 5th one down on the list sorcerer. Works well and tells me all I need to know and I only paid £5 for it on fleabay. Bod
  10. Hi gang, A little advice please. I have code P0430 Catalyst Working Below Efficiency Bank 2. Can anything be done i.e Italian tune up, or is a new Cat required? Thanks, Bod
  11. Sounds similar to what old diesels used to do. When you leave it for a while the fuel used to run back toward the tank. You start the engine and it would use the fuel in the injectors then run all lumpy as the air ran through the injectors then as the fuel came up it would be fine. However, on a modern petrol it could be loosing fuel pressure in the common rail thus giving a misfire code on all cylinders. It may be nothing like this, I just thought I would give you another angle to look at it from. Bod.
  12. A new good quality SS system are between £800 and £1000. I'm really not sure it's a good idea on a car that is 14 years old and that I only paid £1000 for back in August. The cheap SS systems are between £300 and £400 but they come with all sorts of horror stories of broken welds and fatigue fractures etc after only a few hundred miles. I've been in contact with the seller on eBay and asked him what his previous buyers have done about gaskets and he's been brilliant in contacting them and asking what they did. He has now come back with a car parts website and part numbers for the gaskets etc. I love people like him that will go the extra mile to help a customer and close a sale. Bod.
  13. Thanks Ian, the listings are still there but the links won't work so I've just removed them. Cheers, Bod
  14. Does anyone know if the exhaust bore size is the same on a Mk2 GS300 and Mk3 GS300. My issue is that I have found a seller on eBay that sell the three parts of the exhaust separately for my Mk2 that I need but weirdly he doesn't sell fitting kits. Then there's another guy in Germany that sells the whole lot as a kit including a fitting kit but it's for a Mk3. He will sell the fitting kit separately but I'm not sure it will fit. Hence the question on bore size. Thanks for any advice. Bod
  15. I need a new cat back system on my 14 year old Mk2. Unfortunately the total fitted price for mine at Lexus is a whopping £1200. That's never gonna happen. This is the best (well only) pattern part I can find on the planet that isn't S/S. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281960607686 I think you guys with the Mk3 are lucky in this respect. Bod.
