  1. Past hour
  2. Oh! and as you'll have runflats, you'll only have 4 tyres, not 5. There will not be a spare! : o )
  3. Yesterday
  4. Depreciation isn’t linear either. The way I see it, I work hard and enjoy a luxury car so I’ll take the rest on the chin.
  5. genuine LEXUS floor mat set . 👍🏻👍🏻
  6. On my 2008 GS450h, owned for six years - BOTH High-Beam Headlights just stopped working simultaneously and without any warning. I noticed it when driving and I tried to use them. The bright blue dashboard light indicator for the main beam comes on, and there is no warning message on the dash. But those headlights aren't working (all the others are). Easy, you say - their shared fuse must have blown. Per the manual, both paper and online versions, one 20A fuse in the engine compartment fuse box handles both L & R main beam lights. So, I went to replace it: From the instruction manual To my shock, the corresponding fuse (20A) was perfect, and tightly seated. Continuity-checked with a multimeter. In case the wiring didn't correspond to reality, I checked all the fuses around - all were also OK. So I whipped out my OBDII scan tool app on my mobile (BlueDriver gizmo plugged into the vehicle's OBDII port), but no error code of any kind shows up. The only odd thing I can think of is, in the last year, and only a couple of times - the car is driven thrice a day on average - the left dipped beam light did not come on, but came on when I gave the outside of the housing a thump. Please, what do I do next? I've heard there is a relay in the circuit, perhaps shared between the L and the R high-beam lights. Could this be the culprit - and where is it located?
  7. Not a chance. As Bob said, perhaps 5 or maybe 10 with a remap. I've got the mad max version gathering cobwebs in the garage if you want to try one that's a smidge quicker.
  8. Yes. See the other long running thread that has some initial impressions from members, e.g.
  9. Hi mate yep rotated through all the options on the front setting hardly anything coming through
  10. You probably need to store numbers in your address book in international format. +44..... 4g and 5g calls come in with international format and the Lexus software is too basic to figure this out. Paul
  11. Only been twice and usually pick one south of the church on the seafront, there are plenty of them, it's a bit quieter, even get free parking sometimes. Everywhere is easily accessible on foot. Can't remember the name of the last hotel. But all around the Costa Brava are good value usually. Lla Franc is a nice place. Off the beaten track. Even Tossa de Mar or Cadaques. Plenty of places to go around. Some of the other places are a bit touristy lacking character and charm- Lloret, Rosis etc. Nice cheap flights to Barcelona then get out by train ASAP.
  12. Have you read the small print? In my experience these after-market warranties sometimes/often aren't worth the paper they're written on.
  13. Hi. I bought one of these as well. Managed to install it but it seems a bit taller than the factory one. I cant seem to push it in far enough for the yellow plastic clips to click into place it keeps fouling on the top and no matter what i do some of it sticks out. Can you please let me know what did you trim exactly. Im quite disappointed with the fit. Also i cant seem to get this trim panel from the front of the screen to fit. The seller provided a replacement panel but its the same size as the factory one.
  14. Or if you have a RAV4, get charged £70 to have plates fitted.
  15. Seriously? Well thats a coinkydink, 1 in 200-ish..... You never know who you are talking to eh, hope its still going well. I imported mine, its also a 59 plate 2010 model. What are you thinking to move onto?
  16. Do you mean to the look of a 2022 onwards second generation NX? It certainly wouldn’t be a straightforward replacement as the vehciles are build on different platforms with different body dimensions.
  17. I'm sure that's where most of them live,apart from the ladies local to me who seem to all have the "minus R" edition.(That is the on without an R on the gear lever).
  18. Too much fuel. I’d get the fuel pressure and injectors checked.
  19. One thing to keep in mind. If you (like me) use a password manager and use the randomly generated passwords, sometimes there will be characters in there that a website or app won't like. Generally, these tend to be 'programatic' characters, such as " & {} etc. So, if you have problems like this try an alphanumeric password. Usually, an exclamation mark is a safe bet - perhaps use that instead of an i. Hope that helps!
  20. I've done over 16000 miles and the seat still looks like new.
  21. I think this ISF has travelled the world more than most, 4~5 years in KSA, then 3~4 years in UK and now finally arrived in Dubai for some much-needed tender loving care. I decided to ship it out of the UK as London was becoming ridiculous with the 20mph speed limits in the city.
  22. Thanks not sure, will reset and check on motorway
  23. Great thanks this is super useful
  24. These 'services' are one reason why are insurance prices are so high - please don't use them if you don't have to. I suspect the reason why they aren't doing everything they claim on the website is because there isn't a third party at fault that they can claim against.
  25. Today I used Millers fuel additive and also had the car decarbon (ised?). Will see how she runs, especially on the motorway.
