I had the genuine Lexus side protectors fitted on Friday, painted to match the car. I can't decide whether I like them or not. Part of me likes the fact that they break up the rather 'slab-sided' looks. The other part of me thinks they spoil the overall design and they aren't in line with the looks the designers intended!
Regardless, the car is parked in a work car park every day, so these are an essential to try and avoid damage. I can't see that any other members have these - thoughts?
Morning all, just joined the forum. I'm currently looking to replace my trusted old Astra and i really, REALLY like the look of the RX400h. I'm looking at around 2006-2008 model with a budget of around 7k. I like the style of it for one, and the fact that the tax and insurance is only about £30 more a year than my Astra (for a WHOLE lot more car)
I've been doing my research and reading through all the posts on here on what to look out for (thanks in advance)
I got plenty to time to l look too so i'm hoping to find a real gem, ideal would be <100k miles, dark color, dark interior (not really a tan or beige person), no woodpack, SAT NAV/reverse camera and cherry on top would be monitors in the headrests for the kiddies but not essential
Wish me luck and I hope to be on here shortly showing off my new wheels
Hi all, had my gold 2004 sc430 now for 3 months. What a great car. I love the fact that it is rarely seen on the roads and is a real head turner especially with the top down. I have suffered from excessive battery drain which I see is a common problem but will investigate and see if improvements can be made. After a weeks holiday in Wales I returned home to find that one of the front reflectors had fallen off. I have searched eBay, etc to find a replacement but have failed. Can anyone help me out?
New member looking to buy a RX400h. This will be our second car as we have a new car in the household so will be mainly used at weekends. I work away from home as a truck driver, so a 19 mile journey on a Monday and the same on a Friday, plus a little weekend use and thats it. No other reason than the fact I fancy one, having owned a Jap car before (Subaru Outback 3.0) which I now regret selling. Currently driving a Golf 1.9 diesel auto which still works well and owes me nothing. We have previously owned a Prius which we bought new and was a great car. Also my friend has had two Prius's as taxis and put 240,000 miles on the 07 1.5 model with no issues other than servicing, the other Prius plus running for 160,000 before he traded it.
Have seen a cheap RX400h with 119,000 in N Ireland which has a buy it now of £4k, has had the belt done at Lexus at 102k but they never done the waterpump according to the invoice. The history has a few gaps with the current owner doing the last two himself. Also the issue of getting there then getting the car back is a bit of a pain too.
Any thoughts anyone?
I'm trying to find the fusebox on my 2008 RX400H and going by the diagrams I've seen online it should be somewhere under/behind the glovebox. However there's a large plastic panel there to prevent the passengers feet getting up into the gubbins and I can't see how to remove it.
There don't seem to be any screws so I'm assuming it simply latches into place but I've tried various ways to tug it open and it doesn't seem to want to open with gentle force and I'm worried about breaking it if I apply too much force.
How do you remove the panel or access the interior fusebox in a 2008 RX400H? Preferably with a picture!
