Hi, I'm the second owner and I've had it for all but the first 3 years. The vehicle has been only serviced sporadically in last few years and now has 97,000 miles. The timing belt was changed 5 years ago and a person planning to buy the car has said it is due to be changed now; if it is not, there could be a nasty bang and expensive repair! Any truth in this?
janner posted a topic in Lexus Audio/Video/Electronics/SecurityHi, I hope someone can fill in some blanks for me as only recently bought this car. 2004 Is 200 sport UK model. The previous owner, for some reason, removed the sat nav. Then replaced it with the standard flip up parcel tray. I have a button by the gearstick saying TM but of course doesn't do anything, plus i have a cable that comes from under the dash and over the top, with a sensor at the end. Is that supposed to be there or is this something maybe left over if they had their own satnav in there instead? If so, can the wire be ripped out or will it affect anything? How much would it cost to have someone fit a 2nd had lexus nav back in? If i had lexus nav put back in, i prob wouldnt use it though(!) i am just thinking of the cars resale value, not that i plan to get rid of! Thanks
Whats up fellow lexus people, I need some advice with my current mk1 GS300. I've fallen into a state where I do not know whether its worth keeping and spending money on, or letting it go. It a 95' M reg standard model with 95k and service history up to 74k. Since I've owned it, the only work that I have done to it is a back-box delete, and oil changes every 5k. Problems: The body work has a few dings and scratches; the back windows don't work; the cup holders are broken; the CD changer doesn't work; the front left lower arm bush needs replacing; there is an oil leak; some of the LED's on the dash don't work. Now baring in mind that I only paid £300 for it, is it worth pouring in more money to fix up the issues and run low level boost? My intention was to turn it into a highway cruiser/ tourer, but considering the costs to do this, would it not be better to start with another base? My alternatives were a 3000GT, an e39 540i, or an RX8. A BPU 3000GT will run around 380 at the crank but parts are harder to come by. An e39 will cost a lot to boost but the v8 sound is gorgeous. I've already own two rx8's but at the time I was in college and never managed to pull enough money to work on them. I have have been offered to swap my GS for an FTO Tip/auto Mivec. Are these any good or should I avoid it?? I love my the noise the 2J makes and the interior is nice on the MK1 GS. It doesn't get as much attention as my supra which sucks, but oh well. What do you guys recommend I should do?? My initial budget as of this moment is about £1500. Should I trade her in for something else or stay pure?? Any advice or encouragement is appreciated!!!
So was I ripped off by lexus Reading Charging me £81 for diagnostic but if you have the tyre repaired now, which we would recommend as it isn't safe, then its £200 That's expensive I said, they responded 'its the cost of the parts' Well I find out I would have been charged £45 for the part from parts but it was nearly £70 on my invoice plus nearly an hours labour charge to replace a valve and programme? Is this correct as a friend who fits tyres has done them before and it has been 5 minutes er corner for fit and then about 5 for the reprogramme??? So my calculations are about £54 for part inc and about £25 for labour inc so that's £79 not £200 hmmmmmmmm Complained and got manager calling me, but bet that doesn't come down to £79 lol
