    Nice to be here

    I nearly bought the GS450h that was advertised at Lexus Stockport (the red one) but then got the call from Lexus Stoke to buy this (the previous buyer had pulled out of the deal). You've picked the right car in terms of smoothness and serenity. They are other-worldly in that department and very relaxing indeed. I hope the op goes well. Keep strong.

    New car first Lexus

    Fantastic - but we needed a smiling face in the passenger seat! I had two LS400 previously and have just been driving around in a Honda Accord for the last two years. However, last week I got back into a pre-owned Lexus LS600h and it is great to be back! Here's a link to the car I bought from Lexus Stoke. Enjoy your new LS400.

    New to the club and lexus

    Lovely looking car and welcome to this super forum! I've just got back into a Lexus ( you can read about my experience at Lexus Stoke here) and it is a great experience isn't it? I can't help with your specific questions but I'm sure someone will come along soon who can.
  5. Remember to tell your insurance company (boring I know but.....)
  6. What a great review! Thanks for posting. I've just bought a 10 year old LS600h from Lexus Stoke. Just over 101k miles but they were happy (for a small additional cost) to give me a full three year manufacturer warranty with the car. As with your GS450, the peace of mind that the warranty offers means I can enjoy the car for three years (at least) without worrying about the potentially big bills that accumulate quickly. It was interesting to read about the work that you have had done on your car too. When you bought it, did it have a good Lexus service history or was a mix of Lexus and other independents?
  7. Agree. Raise with the dealer - confirm in writing - in a nice way.

    Squeaking in Low Speed

    Just an update. I brought it to lexus and they checked brakes and plates, etc. they finally told me the reason is my driving style as I am not braking hard enough. They said they could put some grease but it the noise will come back after a while. They confirmed there is no mechanical problem with the car

    Fitting DRLs

    Thanks for the help guys. I've ordered a harness/relay with all the necessary connections on it. I'm hoping to fit them properly next week. I have a set that have the running indicators in them. It's a rubber strip that should fit really neatly below the light unit between the bumper. I'm going to multi meter it up today. Has anyone got a list of which fuse is for what. (I really should get a Haynes manual)

    Wind noise at speed

    Mine has had a replacement screen, it is a non genuine screen. I don’t know when it was done as there’s no history of it in the info I got with the car, I’m tempted to remove the plastic scuttle and see if there’s anything obvious missing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bought this!!!

    I'd want to know exactly what happened and where the damage was. The price is OK. Not mind blowing as it's a CAT D and very unlikely someone will buy it if putting up for sale
  15. Thanks for your honest review.... It's all very off putting for a £500 device!! I'd say at that price it would have to be near perfect although I've read some horror stories on the US Lexus forums! It's a real shame, no real solutions available... I just want to load up MP3's on a card and install a decent Sat Nav package, quiet basic stuff although as you've already mentioned, even these tasks are temperamental.
  16. the pic is not mine... i stole it form german version of this site...the description is english isnt going to help,( I have never seen this part here in ukraine) you have a friendly parts guy who can help me out? pretty pls.....

    Smell when AC turned off

    i have cleaned out the aircon drain tube on a yaris it was in the passenger footwell next to the tunnel the amount of rubbish in there was surprising
  19. Sounds fun! Have a great time in the LS!
  20. Sorry Ian, I don't know about the sun/moonroof. I've never had a 400h so I never really researched into them very much. To be honest, although almost all of my cars have had a sun or moon roof, including our current one, I don't particularly like them and never use them, preferring instead to use the climate control all year round.
  21. Fear no more, gents! Ear plugs are here! 😁
  22. That’s good then chap. I doubt you will still have the car in April next year but if you do I’ll get in touch. Depending what the dealer offered it may be out of my budget but who knows.
  23. Hi there, I completely agree, I was speaking to a few people & they thought exactly the same. The last thing I want is to go through all the work of installing it & then it's not reliable or not up to scratch. Thanks for the advice.
  24. I have used the same garage for the last 50+ years. Today I discovered that they are now ready to service hybrids. (Oxford City goes emission free in 2020 so they are expecting business to grow.) They can do the hybrid health check (though perhaps not with he insurance that might apply to a Lexus check). They can even service the hybrid battery. There is a Toyota dealer nearby if the customer wants Toyota stuff - 0W20 oil in my case. See I will report after they have done the minor service + MOT on my car at the end of this month. John
  25. hi Pidster i think your sat nav is a generation 1,if you visit the Lexus map update and enter your disc numbers it comes up with part number PZ445-X01EU-11 - the X01 referring to the generation and the eu11 referring to the year of the update which in this case is 2011.The two discs in the photos above are both generation 1 sat nav discs.

    The Fisker Emotion

    I can't believe Fisker have the know how to achieve this when companies like Panasonic have been working on batteries for decades. Reformed in 2016 - leaves my spider sense tingling. Fisker Automotive was a company known for producing the Fisker Karma, which was one of the world's first production luxury plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. It debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, and first deliveries were in 2011. Production of the Fisker Karma was suspended in November 2012 due to bankruptcy of its battery supplier A123 Systems,[9] with about 2,450 Karmas built since 2011 and over 2000 cars sold worldwide.[10] In February 2014, Fisker Automotive's Karma vehicle design, tooling and a manufacturing facility in Delaware were purchased by Chinese auto parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group. Henrik Fisker, the founder of Fisker Automotive, retained the Fisker trademarks and the Fisker brand and launched a separate company, Fisker Inc, in 2016. Wanxiang later renamed its new company Karma Automotive.[11]
