  1. Happy Birthday waveydavey!

  2. Post Pics Of Your Lexus

    Thanks Matt. I've a whole album of pics of the car on my flickr page here I got the lighting panels from ebay. I'm just about to head out now but a couple of others have also asked for the details so i'll find them out when i get back later with a couple of pics of the panels themselves etc.... Cheers Dave.
  3. Wheel Noise ?

    Just wondered if you got the problem sorted? Did it end up being a problem with the rear brakes like mine and others? Cheers Dave.
  4. What about the problem with a whistle that comes from the wheels when over around 20mph??? Mine suffered from this issue and was sorted by the local dealer during a service. I've seen others mention it on their cars and the issue seems to have always been caused by dirty rear brakes or having to play about with the rear brake guards etc..... I've also heard two other IS's that have driven past me when walking that have had the same whistling as they've gone past me. Always worth remembering about this one as it's something that drives you mad when your car suffers from it!!! Cheers Dave.
  5. Post Pics Of Your Lexus

    Thanks John. All IS300 came with factory fit HIDs/xenons, (along with the IS200 version of the ltd ed), so can't help you there. I know there is also a cover under the bulb to alter the beam pattern to cut dazzle. Basically if you look at the headlights head on when they are switched on the bottom third or so of the reflector is in darkness. You can see what I mean in the third pic. I replaced the sidelights with LEDs along with all the interior and boot lights. The sidelights are 9LED 501 bulbs, The map and boot lights are 12LED panels, The main interior light is a 24LED panel and the visor lights are 3LED bulbs. I also replaced the front and rear indicators with silvervision bulbs. I can pop up some pics of the headlight bulb cover and the LED panels if you want them. :) Cheers Dave.

    Here's some of mine. One of the rarer ISs on the roads the elusive 300 Limited Edition..... Mainly standard except for the switching around of the seat heater and traction control buttons, lighting mods, aerial (not shown in the pics) and air filter. Cheers Dave.
  7. Is200 Splitter

    Mine has the yellow fogs. Lexus had a stint of putting them on as standard didn't they???? I know mine must have had them from new as the car's only had one previous owner and that was an old fella who i don't think would have been in to modding. :) Cheers Dave.
  8. Quick Question About Ipod Connectivity

    This time it's a possibility that it's a totally different shaped connector too apparently. Around the size of a mini USB connector. Cheers Dave.
  9. Thanks guys. I'll give it a go in the next day or two. :) Cheers Dave.
  10. Quick Question About Ipod Connectivity

    I'm looking into getting either the Grom or the Xcarlink unit. Only thing i'm waiting for is the new iPhone announcement as if the rumours are correct it's going to have a totally new dock connector so won't work with existing dock accessories like the Grom/Xcarlink adapters. Cheers Dave.
  11. Hi all, I have an issue with the driver's door red light where i need to remove the lower door panel that has the red light in it. Since i got the car that red light hadn't worked and as it wasn't anything major i only just got around to looking at it and replacing what i thought was a blown bulb. I removed the light only to find that it has no wiring connected to it!!! The vehicle history that Lexus pulled off the system for me shows that some work was done on the driver's interior door handle so i'm assuming when this was done the light was never connected back up. Anyway i've tried feeling to see if the cable is near to the hole where the light goes but no joy so it looks like i'll have to remove the lower panel to try and find the cable and re-connect the light. How easy is it to remove that panel? If it's a PITA i'll just live with the light not working. ;) Cheers Dave.
  12. Wheel Noise ?

    Hi, I had near the exact same problem where there was a whistle noise coming from the drivers side of the car when the car got above around 25mph. The noise would stay constantly till the speed dropped down below around 10-20mph when it would stop. It seemed to come from the rear of the car. It drove me nuts as I couldn't work out what it was. You couldn't hear it with the windows up only when they were down and also it wouldn't happen if it was raining or the roads were wet!!! It had it's service last year at Lexus Sheffield so i mentioned it to them and decribed exactly what was happening and they cured it by stripping down and cleaning the rear brakes. It's been around 10 months now and the noise hasn't occurred since, (touch wood!!!) Hope this helps Cheers Dave.
  13. The one thing I miss from my previous car that i dont have on the IS is not having lane change indicators. Is it possible to enable this feature somehow on the IS300? Cheers Dave.
  14. Is200 Ahead Of It's Time?

    I see a couple. I commented to the wife the other day though that I was pleased we got the sportcross as you don't see many around at all (unlike in NZ where in Altezza Gita guise they are semi common), then we pulled into a car park and there was an IS300 sportcross, doh! If you want rare you want the one I've got.... According to howmanyleft.co.uk there were only ever 191 of them registered new in the UK. I've yet to see another 300 LE on the road yet. There is a 200 LE round the corner from us though which is the closest I've come. :) Cheers Dave.
  15. New K&n Panel Filter?

    Quick question.... If you just replace the OEM air filter with a cotton filter do you need to reset the ECU or is that just when carrying out more advanced engine mods? Cheers Dave.
