Hi Guys first time posting on the forum but wanted to share my experience. I have a 07 Is220d for almost a year now with 120k. I drive about 400 mile per week motorway driving. When I got the car it wasn't great so got it remapped. I then got it carbon cleaned through the air box and put some fuel cleaner in it to and still not great. Low revs poor. Couldn't get 40mpg no matter what I done. Monday night I decided to pull of the egr valve and it was totally blocked. The fuel cleaner and 1 hour carbon clean was useless. I soaked the egr valve in brake cleaner and also the steel pipe. Used a tooth brush to get as much carbon off the manifold. Put it all back together and I'm not getting 50 mpg at 75mph. Takes any gear at low revs. Different car. It took me about 2 hours and it's only 6 nuts. Hope this helps some of yous.
agent_dess posted a topic in Lexus IS 250 / Lexus IS 250C Club / Lexus IS 220D & IS 200D Club** UPDATED - New Photo's Added - 15th March 2013 ** Hey guys i've been busy in the past weeks wrapping my interior with carbon fibre wrapping... Motivation for doing this was to: 1) Make it look fresh and stylish. 2) The previous owner must have been a smoke, as they have tried to use touch up paint on the centre console... So really it was bugging me! 3) Couldn't find any right-hand side trim on the web... Except for the horrible wood effect!! 4) Lexus quoted £315 to replace the centre console!!! What I've done: 1) All 4 door panel control + the plastic cover inside the door handle 2) Centre console + Can holder + Ashtray 3) Key fob 4) centre vent Still to do (Work in progress): Air vents both side - I started to work on it but had to temporarily abandon this due to time constraint, still left the photo Possibly considering: 1) Steering wheel control (don't know if i have the guts to take that a part.. I'm scared the air bag might go off, will refer to Ahmed post on how to do it) 2) Silver trim that fits all around the edge of the speedometer instrument cluster panel 2) Overhead lights Attempted but abandoned: Tried to do all the small button panels i.e petrol, boot, snow, ect... Couldn't get the vinyl to stick to the surface as its not smooth! Total Cost for Project: £8 Obviously pictures can never do the same justice as see the actual thing for yourself but at least you will get the idea
