  2. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    thanks bobmc, looking at vintages pics, i think i'll have a go, it's a great write up
  3. Hi guys, hope this is nearly in the right place? I wanted to get everyones advice if possible? My headlamps seem very low on dipped, dangerously low if i'm honest. I will check them against the wall tonight, just to see if they self level. As i drove in the night Fri, they were terrible. We happened to stop at a shop, where i got out and just bounced the front and rear of the car, and they seemed much better, and much higher. I will get the local garage to check them out,but was wondering if there should have been a warning? Apart from the obvious lack of vision lol My car is a gs300 2007
  4. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    just an update, and a question. headlamps working great, both height adjust as you turn ignition on, and not pointing at the floor, so all good. but ns headlamp is very cloudy, and i've been looking at polishing it to see if i can get it looking a bit cleaner. has anyone got any advice, or has anyone used the kits on ebay? with good results? thanks tim
  5. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    thanks bobmc, all done the part was actually very reasonable, £350 for the double unit. seems to be working, but will take it out tonight in the dark. the worse thing? one shiny headlamp and one dull lamp. I did mention to the misses maybe i could change the other one, but i got the look!
  6. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    so booked into Lexus Cambridge tomorrow for a new os headlamp, apparently the motor has seized/burnt out? and you guessed it, not available by itself. Lets hope this fixes the issue! tried ebay for a 2nd hand lamp, but the only couple in the uk for sale were only just a little cheaper than a new one fitted so don't feel quite as bad
  7. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    just an update. local indy garage can't do it, they are not 100% sure which sensor or motor or ecu is causing the fault, and their computer can't find any error codes. instead of just guessing they suggested Lexus, and didn't charge me anything so that's ok i guess. Lamps would fail an mot on height, but no warning lights to say motor not working. Lets see what the dealer says?
  8. Mechanic Damaged My 220d

    hi Marty, has he explained the problem to you? is he waiting for parts, or tech advice? i'd start by just a phone call to check you're both happy with whats to be done, and to just confirm the price he quoted(just for your sake) tim
  9. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    thanks Tiger, gonna book it in local garage, and see where beams point on MOT ramp, then they are going to check the level sensor on suspension to see if it's stuck. looks like they are hid, and no thumb wheel in car to adjust. fingers crossed it's not to expensive
  10. Lexus GS300 headlamp question

    Hi Tiger, yes to h/lamp wash, and no warning lights on. Seems to think it's ok? maybe it's just very low? I did try on the garage wall at home, and they don't seem to set. When i tried our rx400h the lamps bob up and down and set.
  11. hi Vintage, we had a quote for our RX400h, £1000 for just the part, luckily the local garage that had it said they thought it was worth trying to weld. Charged me £70 i think, and that was 3years ago, so def worth a go
  12. Quick hi from new owner

    hi all, Just wanted to say hi to everyone. Just picked up a new to me, 2007 GS300. Sold a Nissan Juke diesel,so hoping the mpg doesn't scare me to much. Hoping to get involved with forums, and looking forward to some wafting! thanks Tim
  13. SC430 project

    looks really good, the body kit sort of reminds me of something? mgb rv8? got a retro look to it
  14. hi Noo Bie, is it worth asking the shop if they have cameras? or if it's a parking eye type of car park would they have a car leaving matching your pic at the same time with a clear reg?
  15. Quick hi from new owner

    thanks guys, nice to meet you all. hopefully the questions i ask won't be to silly. although i did have to use the manual to find the hidden head rest button on the drivers side. will have a nose at the build sections, did see an interesting thread on audio, but that might be a little out of my league.
  16. Quick hi from new owner

    thank James. looks like a really good site. going to check out some of the sections as i get time at work.
  17. Quick hi from new owner

    both i'm sure!
  18. Quick hi from new owner

    hi Farqui, it's def a nicer place to be. My misses has a rx400h and it's such a reliable car for us, a Lexus was the perfect choice. I looked at 200, but really wanted something big and comfy, as i travel 30miles to work, and the gs300 seemed the right choice. this one just had the low mileage i was hoping for, and at a sensible price
