  1. Hi Looked on Westfalia Automotive tow bars, where I had my RX450h fitted with one for you, only IS200, IS 250.? Might be worth contacting them direct! Westfalia link 2ddesign
  2. Lee Thank you for your post, my tow bar set-up is the best you can get from, Westfalia automotive in Bristol, recommended by Lexus for the RX450h. I take your point about suspension, but this is for the coil springs that fit around the suspension arms. 2ddesign
  3. Rayaans You are correct that this does put an extra load on the springs! I do not live with salty air though. I just had the Lexus technician phone me up as I am typing this......the part has not turned up...... so it will be tomorrow when it is sorted! But I asked him if pulling the caravan was a cause, he commented that the other side is ok and more likely a fault in the metal of the spring? So at least I have a new NX 300h with 2000 miles on the clock to drive till then... 2ddesign
  4. Hi David Still waiting to pick-up vehicle, so have not had a chance to discuss this with them! My caravan is a Trivargo Silver 310, one of the smallest caravans you can get and the lightest 850kg. As to the cost it could be £430 approximately waiting for the part to be fitted today! 2ddesign
  5. Hi All My RX 450h 2010 with 47000 miles has failed the MOT with a rear suspension coil spring snapped in two places? I have seen the evidence video of the part on the vehicle, sent by Lexus Bristol, showing the item in situ broken in two places. So how does a vehicle of 47000 miles carefully driven get a snapped coil spring? OK, could it be because I have started pulling a caravan recently? Ideas, happened to anyone.... 2ddesign
  6. Hi Try this site for "all things" IS200.... IS200 link 2ddesign
  7. Hi Try this group on Facebook Lexus IS200 Classifieds (+IS300/Altezza) Ricky Smith is always breaking IS200's and posts stuff to your address. 2ddesign
  8. Hi I had my dash cam fitted by Lexus Cardiff, to my RX 450h 2010 model. The price was £125 all up, Ashely (technician) removed all the trim side pillars, glove box etc. see post 2ddesign
  9. Thank you for your comments, with my earlier post I had completed a search of the forum and found this post that confused me a little, regarding 235/55/R19 tyres. R19  wheels tyre pressure 2ddesign
  10. Hi yes you are right about the sidewall inflation pressure, not thought of it as the max the tyre can withstand before 2ddesign
  11. Hi when checking what the tyre pressures are for my new Michelin Cross climate tyres 235/55/R19s, it seems that there are different answers. On the Michelin website it states use only those pressures on the door pillars recommended by the vehicle manufactures not on the tyre side wall. So here are the ratings Lexus tyre pressures So looking at the ECO setting 36psi seems correct? 2ddesign
  12. Hi Recall in June see this post. 2ddesign
  13. Hi Sorcerer Yes it may seem excessive, but no wires are visible at all, and yes I was aware I could do it myself as many Utube videos how to Guides show dash cam fitting! By taking out the interior glove box and also removing the pillar contains the airbag, he has hidden the wires completely and it is a first class job. Excellent that you did yourself I chose not to! 2ddsign
  14. Hi I had my Dash Cam fitted by Lexus Cardiff £125 inc VAT, to my RX 450h model. All hidden away behind panels and Ashely fitted the 12v supply by drilling into the side of the housing of the arm rest and taking the cable up through the glove box and side pillar along the top fitting the cam behind the rear mirror. This left the large cigarette connection inside the box/armrest. Model fitted Mini DVR 0801 see review on this post below! 2ddesign
  15. Hi What about buying a 12v cigarette adaptor that has 4 ports so you can then plug into the same source as your front cam,(extension cables can be purchased). See on Amazon "Ring RMS4 Car Four 12V Sockets Adaptor for Dash Cams, Sat Navs and more" £11.98p
