Hi, I have a 2007 IS 250 II aut and I think that the original brakes are really not up to the job so I was thinking about upgrading them. Maybe put on the is350s 4 piston caliper and an original size drilled/slotted rotor because I would like to stay on the 17" tires. What do you think? Will the 350s caliper fit the original size rotor and a 17" wheel? Have any other suggestions? Thanks..
Here is a mystery. I bought a red & white Sep 2006 SC430 with 28,000 miles to replace my black & tan Sep 2007 SC430 with 56,000 miles (which is now for sale). The black 2007 car with double the mileage is noticeably quicker in acceleration than the red 2006 car with half the mileage. This is so when comparing the two with the ECT off or on. I thought that the SC430 engine and transmission were identical in these two cars. What could be the explanation for this phenomenon?
I have a performance chip which was connected to my Lexus IS 220D turbo for over a year. It works wonders, no turbo lag, higher rpm and power through the gears and even managed to use 6 gear at 75mph and not at 90mph lol. I filled my tank up on £70.00 ever time, and before fitting this i would get 370 miles. Now i get around 450 miles from only £70.00 a tank of fuel. The power increase is from 175 bhp to about 215 bhp same as the IS 250 but half the amount of fuel.
Hi All, Only heard about this website recently and thought it would be a great place for people to help. I have recently purchased a Lexus IS200 SE (2003) . I am looking to purchase some new spark plugs to help with starting the car and general performance, any advice would be great. Thanks Waz
