Hello im looking to get install a turbo into and IS200 and looking through this forum and various other forums I've not really found a clear answer to my question. Can you just install a turbo onto the is200 without having to buy this £2300 kit? For example, could I just change the manifold and install a turbo without having to spend all that money. I understand that some stock internals may need to be upgraded however e.g. flywheel, manifold and such.
Hello everyone! I picked up my first IS200 SE last week for the princely sum of £650. She has 97,000 miles, one owner, full history and lovely in every way apart from the bodywork. My plans are to slowly restore it to a nice standard. Primarily lots of small bodywork and paint repairs including the seriously scuffed alloys.
PLANS Remove major scratches and minor dents. Repair deep dent on rear panel. Deep polish to remove the pretty bad swirl marks. Alloy repair and respray. Tint rear windows. Spray chrome rear light inserts red (sorry, not a fan of lexus lights). Make sure everything is fully rust proof and pristine for longevity. Cruise Control retrofit (if possible). Wire folding mirrors to central locking.
I'm new to this forum, after scouring the classifieds on autotrader/pistonheads/gumtree I thought I'd try and put a wanted post out there after my poor choice in gumtree ad in my first post...
I'm looking for a manual IS200, under £1,500 - ideally with as few miles as possible, FSH and cambelt to have been done at that price, but I am aware they particularly wear their mileage well.
I'm based in Oxford and wouldn't mind travelling a little for the right car.
If anyone is selling in the next month or so, or knows anyone that is, I would appreciate the feedback!

I am seriously considering buying a 2013/14 Rx450h and hope to pick one up before the end of the summer but before I do is there anything that I need to look out for or consider?
Never having had a hybrid before my main concerns are avoiding damaged batteries and anything that I absolutely must or must not do.
Also can anyone give me an indication of the running and servicing costs, please My other car is an RX7 and that is horrendous, but i'd like to have an idea of what i am signing up to before i have any surprises.
At a cyclist does anybody carry bikes and if so, how? I presume a tow bar mounted carrier would trigger the rear sensors but can you fit roof rails to one with a sunroof?
Finally at what mileage does they have their midlife crisis and require a significantly more thorough service?
Apologies if any of this has been covered before, I couldn't seem to find it.
