  1. I'm having a key issue & the related advice is excellent thanks all. Unfortunately I've bought a car with only one key. Only now do I discover, as it was taped together, that it is the grey key, not the black one and therefore they cannot make/cut/code me a spare key, so I can only ever have one key. The dealer is telling me either they can sell me a shell for £50 or it'll be a few thousand to re-code everything. Any advice would be most welcome. Thanks.

    Thank Paul, being new to a Lexus, thought I'd check the helpful advise & options of those in the know. Guess I will bite the bullet.

    Noted! To be fair the price took into account the price of new keys. Thanks

    For me too! And a driving through France thing too!

    Hello, As the title suggests I'm new to owning a Lexus and almost by default. I've owned SUV's before (Honda) and intended reverting to younger days and a convertible, but once I tested a few, realised that comfort and a loftier driving position were for me! I came across a 2005 RX300 ES L, with 48k on the clock and serviced annually. Although the previous owner (2nd from new) had used this as a young children carrier, I saw past the sticky upholstery and badly stained carpets. (It didn't smell too good either) Anyway a smooth test drive and now it's mine for a very reasonable price. I'm amazed by smoothness and the kit on these, actually more that my previous car, which was a 2013. It'll take some retraining and I suspect some daft questions to you all, before I get to grips with it all. Just a couple for now. It only came with one key, (their little boy buried one on the beach!) and although working the casing is held together with tape. The dealer wants £150 for a new key and coding it. Any advice? And SatNat - it'll need updating. Anything I should about those on eBay? Thanks Murray
