    Paint Correction

    thanks it's the solid velvet black
  3. As I said above, the Goodyear Vector 4 Searsons G2 all round is my preferred choice. The two on the back that I have at the moment seem to be excellent and being an all-season tyre there's no reason to worry at any time of year.

    Yes the rear wheels have stored rotation energy but their contribution is insignificant. The physics and real world experience can be quite different... but no less real.
  5. Today
  6. I have the oem dunlops all round, but recently noticed that a Sport Maxx A1 and a Sport 270 have been put on the rear axle. I could see in the service history that 1 tyre had been replaced, which probably explains it. They both have sufficient tread left (around 6 mm), although the outer edges seem to go a little faster than the inside. Both front tyres are just above 2 mm, hence need replacing anyway. I am now in two minds what to do: i) replace both fronts with the Lattitude Sport 3's to maintain summer tyres all round, or ii) replace all 4 with the CrossClimate or Goodyear Vector 4 Season. Option ii would probably be my long term aim anyway, but option i would allow me to continue to use the rear tyres while benefiting from new good summer tyres up front. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated as always.

    I do like a good scientific debate. If nothing else this thread proves that parallel universes DO exist!

    you are the one's making big fools of yourselves... and if you still dont believe momentum from the rear tyres do not assist in pushing the rear end of a fwd car forwards, get us a lab, 4 independent wheels rollers, and a FWD car and a proof will be made right before your eyes that momentum from rear wheels pushes the rear end of a Fwd car.
  9. Lol. I forget cars need software updates now.

    Sorry, but I'm right about the Honda Jazz!
  11. I'm in Coventry and happy to assist, I'm pretty sure I can make the meet in July also so could help then.
  12. Time for a software update I think. Someone kindly posted the latest on the forums a few weeks back. Else, take it to dealer to do, you'll probably be charged.

    MPG on IS 300h etc.

    I've seen all bars lit only a few times in 18 months of ownership.
  14. I've used Android and Spotify for years with no problems. I stream via BT to many devices and can't complain. Did you try just starting over? And could you expand on "dreadful"?

    MPG on IS 300h etc.

    Getting back to MPG on the is300h. We are just back from a week on the South Coast, near Lymington (we live near Southend in Essex). I filled up just before leaving, did over 500 miles during the week, got home without having to buy any more petrol, and still have some left in the tank. On the way down I had it up to 60mpg at one point. By the time we got home it was a fraction over 54 mpg (on display), which I am quite happy with. One more point. Has anyone managed to get all of the bars on the battery indicator lit up blue ? The best I've had, is all lit up except for one.
  16. Just had a look on Wikipedia. 3 different engines for the 3 different models. There you go. You learn something every day.

    Vacuuming query

    I did mine today prior to giving it a wash. My wife won't let me put the cleaner round indoors, as she says I don't do it properly. What is the point of moving furniture ?, I ask .

  19. @J Henderson John I believe not, but there is a right hand drive RcF that's been seen at 'Lexus UK Headquarters on UK trade plates. I understand that one of each maybe just maybe at the 10th anniversary meet, date of which as yet still undecided. But I'm at the dealers on Saturday and the DP there is a font of insider info I shall pump him ...... so to speak and try and find out more, if one is available shall I put a deposit down on your behalf........😇 Big Rat

    F Sport ride quality

    @J Henderson is right. Our IS is an F Sport. It has better ride quality than the 3rd Gen RX F Sport and is marginally poorer than my 4RX F Sport. Having said that, all cars are smoother than their German counterparts with Sport packages of the same years. The loaner CT I usually get is the Advance or Sport specification and the ride is bad enough on them in comparison
  21. Yep should only be 1 month I think as the first ones were registered in July 2013. Ours is registered beginning of September but I've been getting it serviced on the last week of August to avoid having to do it when school starts as it's the wife's car

    F Sport ride quality

    That's what I was hoping, I find the ride on the CT a bit fidgety on anything that's not perfectly smooth. I had a IS F Sport as a loaner last year, and found the ride fine, but it was only a couple of hours to work and back, so difficult to judge overall, and as I probably wont buy from a dealer I'd feel a bit cheeky trying for a longer test drive Mrs B hated a Volvo V60 R-Design I had as the ride was to firm, but to be fair it was awful - I used to change my route to avoid certain roads as it was so bad, so she is quite sensitive to me looking at anything that looks sporty!
  23. @65mike Your car looks like a facelift model and should have full postcode entry. The default navi screen is 1/2, it's on the 2nd page. 😀
  24. Thanks for clearing that up, before posting my previous comment I had watched a you tube on a oil filter change of a GS and the oil filter housing was the same as my IS , must have been a later model. Confusion solved!
  25. @Big Rat do you know if any of those 10th anniversary models made it into the UK?
