    Update Not fixed and looks like it will be some time. Earlier this week I had convinced the insurance company that they should pay for Lexus dealer to do it. Went back to Lexus dealer to confirm the quote. Dealer is closed and I was also told by email that they are not able to order any parts either. Spoke to an area manager at Autoglass. They are not ordering any parts. Could not even advise when the trim would arrive (this should have been ordered on 17 March). When I suggested that they could have got the glass and parts from Lexus ages ago Autoglass said that the insurance company would not let them do that! Hmmmmm that's probably the agreement they have to keep the cost down for both. Crack is now right across the drivers line of sight so technically should not be driven. Fortunately we have second car and obviously not going very far at the moment.
  3. Hi Brian Can you tell me which one you ordered and the way I understand it - it fits to the battery and sits next to it?
  4. Hey Lexus peeps, How are you all doing? Here is a video I made of our 2019 IS premium, it has everything from keyless entry and go, to a heated steering wheel to heated & cooled seats HOPE YOU ENJOY MY CAR TOUR VIDEO, THOMAS 🙂
  5. Harry's videos are amazing! Did you see the one on the Tesla?
  6. Hey Everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and safe? I thought this video might perk some of you up briefly with the sound of its V12 engine! Enjoy and stay safe, Thomas
  7. I also have an Aldi compressor and it's brilliant for all sorts of things around the garage and house. Sadly, you have to wait until these things come round in the stores but a quick look on eBay brought up this one which is very similar. This one isn't quite as powerful but is free delivery and free toolkit as well. I initially got mine for blowing out computers that came in for repair; some of them can be quite nasty as you can see below (although these photos are from somewhere else, not me, as I've never had anything quite so bad):
  8. I didnt realise the current gen C63 is so heavy and people have a dig at the RCF!
  9. Today
  10. My mum has a black 2019 IS 300h and it is awesome, soo many gadgets!! I actually have a video on it if you would like to see her car?
  11. on mine, Mk3 Ls400, I think I read somewhere ( probably on here, but maybe in the manual somewhere ) that to drain say 2 ltrs at 130k miles and then the same again at each 35k miles thereafter ..... just the 2 ltrs mind to drain and refill my indy does it of course so I have no idea how challenging that may be BUT he doesn't complain about it at all Malc
  12. @Cactus White. All my Type R's have been white (3 Integra's). Yep, styling is Marmite but I liken it to an Apache helicopter. The pilot is flying around worrying about it being ugly 😉
  13. I always add a letter H between the s and i......just about covers the quality then which often leaves you inde****!
  14. What I don’t understand is why companies are still advertising but are closed, for example BMW are running a TV ad promotion at the moment, a nice 30 second ad costing thousands but all their showrooms are closed. OK some products are still available by mail order but surely not a brand new car when you are spending mortgage money on one.
  15. If your MOT date is after the 30 March, then you have a 6 month extension on it. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-mots-for-cars-vans-and-motorcycles-due-from-30-march-2020 However, you are still expected to keep the vehicle safe for use on the roads but that is always the case. If you knowingly drive an unsafe vehicle you are liable for prosecution and your insurance company will refuse to payout if you have an accident.
  16. I had a flat in France last year, I found the jack more than adequate to lift the car to get the space saver on.
  17. OK to put this all to bed on cats My prtnr is a Cats Protection co-ordnator with much experience and we have 4 cats ( god help us ) YES they do have a genetic ? coronavirus type which stays in the cat and it's NOT covid19 .... you will find that all cats have this specific strain which has never ever passed to humans ...... well maybe in China I suppose ....... and I remember going to Canton many years back ( about 30 ) on my holiday touring China AND was quite horrified at the delicacies on offer in the marketplace there ......... say no more .............. it was a horror story ...... I part put it down to Canton having a very much French cuisine influence as they were the " colonialists " for that part of China in the day Malc
  18. @rich1068 - that's my Discovery of The Week, thank you!
  19. I would highly recommend Russell Birch of Toyotec in Redhill - http://www.toyotec.co.uk I had a bunch of MOT work that needed doing and he saved me well over £500 compared to what my local garage were going to charge, purely through better techniques and knowledge of the car. And he also diagnosed an engine bay rattle for me for free (it was my aftermarket cruise control unit).
  20. Yesterday
  21. The bracket is fine but seeing at the pin is snapped and seized inside it may as well be redundant. Think I'll have to take a trip to breakers yard when all is normal again.
  22. Thank you for your post on this John. I hope that by trickle charging occasionally I will be able to avoid the 12v battery going flat. I am aware that once flattened they are not always recoverable and even if they are this can drastically reduce their efficiency/life.
  23. Let's hope you manage to keep clear of it, it's always been part of my routine for many years to ask my circle of friends if they have any symptoms of flu as I have to avoid them, but of course that's a bit of a waste in supermarkets and just about everywhere else.
  24. It must be more pronounced in the USA ( compensation hungry lawyers and all that) but not mentioned on that article is the episode whereby Winnebago had to give a customer a new replacement RV because he got up out of the drivers seat while on the highway after engaging Cruise Control to go and make a coffee in the kitchen area! Needless to say the vehicle crashed soon after but because it did Not say in the owners manual you should not do this he got a new RV ! Beggars belief...But the older I get the less shocked I get. paul m.
  25. Just a quick question from the pics... Is that wire cradle standard on an original exhaust set up?
