  1. I have a 2016 IS300h SE-L Navi model. I can figure out what the Navi means, but can’t find any details of what extra you get over the standard SE spec for the SE-L. It isn’t listed as a model option on the Lexus website .
  2. Hi. I have a 2016 IS300H which is due for its second service. I have been quite £450 by Lexus for what is basically an oil change and a look around the car. With my previous 2015 Mercedes C class, I purchased the genuine Mercedes oil and filters etc, normally from eBay and Mercedes just charged me for the labour of about £100. So full service with genuine Mercedes parts was sub £200, instead of their usual £400+. I assume Lexus will do the same thing provided Genuine Lexus parts are used. The parts do not seem so readily available as genuine Mercedes parts or am I looking in the right places ! Anyone done similar and know of a good place to source reasonably priced genuine Lexus service parts? Thanks.
  3. SE-L spec vs SEspec ?

    How do you know if you have a pre or post 2015 changes ? Any obvious spec change, figures etc?
  4. SE-L spec vs SEspec ?

    That seems to make sense. So the L is attached to the Navi and not the SE. L-Navi is a strange abbreviation for Navigation as it is not going to be made by anyone other than Lexus (L) !!
  5. SE-L spec vs SEspec ?

    Oh it does. Its on all my documents, my V5, Service books etc. See below details of my car from the Lexus website.. It has half leather so the L can't mean that. It does have a few extras onto of SE. Nav, keyless entry etc.
  6. Servicing Costs

    Avoid Warranty Direct. Bunch of sharks. They are very good at avoiding payouts for anything by quoting small print and classing everything as a ‘wear and tear’ item and not covering it, although the item is listed as being covered in their paperwork. l ,
  7. I did ! The sensor must be very sensitive, as the bump was so minor that it only dislodged the light washer jet.. I wonder where the sensor is?
  8. Techstream arrived and pop-up reset. Worth the £12 already !
  9. Thanks. Are you sure they would change the diff oil on its second service with sub 20k on the clock? Trade discount sounds favourite as I have been told need to be 'Toyota boxed' parts. What is the 'fancy type' pollen filter? Surely air filter too?
  10. Thanks. I have been quoted £140 by Lexus for the labour inc Hybrid check, so just need to find the 'Toyota boxed' parts now, but I am sure I can do it for under £310 !
  11. Thanks. Will give it a go when the tech stream arrives.
  12. Anyone know what this is.

    And your prize is......... warm glow inside..
  13. I removed my rear bumper today to have a fiddle with the parking sensors and saw this mounted to the centre upper behind the bumper. There was a wiring connector going to it, but couldn't figure out it use. Any ideas. Just interested thats all !
  14. As the one and only key to my 2015 IS300H is now lost ( I know, I know ! ), what is the procedure for getting a replacement? The key blade is fine as Lexus will order me one off the chassis number for £45, but they are scratching their head over if it is possible to get a replacement fob to work.. They are talking of a new immobiliser ECU ( wherever that is) and then reprogramming it to the car and the new keys. Sounds very expensive ! Has anyone ever come across this before and have any info for me. Thanks.
  15. Thats the message ! I will put my washer back into position and then have a go with the Techstream when it is delivered.. Does it specify pop-up hood in the software or is it under some other setting?
  16. No Keys.

    Thats what I am thinking. Worth a try. Waiting for my Techstream toy so I can start playing !!
  17. No Keys.

    I have heard that. There are sellers on eBay that describe their keys as having been erased and ready for programming. I don't know if that is the answer ??
  18. No Keys.

    Thanks. I will bear them in mind for the future.
  19. Hi. Can anyone recommend an eBay seller of aTechstream for a 2015 IS300H. A link would be good to a seller who someone has used and sells working stuff... Thanks.
  20. No Keys.

    I intend to. This is the key.
  21. No Keys.

    Hoo Raarrr. Found 1 key. The youngest had put it inside his reading book and walked in this morning and said 'Dad is this yours?' , holding the key aloft. I didn't know whether to kiss him or send him to the workhouse !! Will get another key sorted this week, incase he wants to hide it again....
  22. Hi. Do you know what caused the warning to go off, as in what sensors detected it? I have had it come on with mine, after a very minor front nearside corner toucher. It cracked the bumper around the headlight washer causing the washer to fall inside the bumper. The bonnet did not explode on me! Just the warning 'pop-up hood ' I haven't looked into it yet but hopefully it is just a reset or a new sensor as I believe it is mounted next to the headlamp washer. Will Techstream reset it, as I have just ordered a tech stream module?
  23. Techstream

    I It does say uk, but lists 10 days plus postage. We shall see !!
  24. Techstream

    Ordered this one. Can only try ! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391788689000
  25. Techstream

    So you guys recommend a seller for this with recent software?
