Nice to see a UK independent business producing a quality replacement.

I have seen the middle section before, but do not know if it was this company.

Fully endorse this.  Fitted it last year on my car. 30 minutes work, no regrets.  Smooth as a buttered banister!

Can't get much better than a LOC member with a personal experience endorsement! Gonna bookmark that seller for future!

What has actually gone on the exhaust?

Do both the middle sections and rear sections need redoing?  I went for a stainless steel cat back.....did look at this replacement but it was the middle section of mine that went so I needed to replace from cat back. 

This one is good and suggest you look for a second hand middle section and this back box.  Should last you a few more years.

I have a cat back system from my IS250 SE-L that was only on the car for 14 months from new. It's been taking up room in my garage for far too long so was thinking of putting it on Gumtree or possibly EBay.

My 2009 IS sounds like it’s blowing somewhere. Will this part fit? It’s says no but I just assumed the exhaust system would be the same on all IS’s?

Yes it will fit. The only ever changes made to the generation 2 IS250 exhaust system was the tailpipe shape.

I'm not so sure - I think you should ask them to confirm that it will fit a 2009 - all the exhaust places quote different part numbers for pre and post 2008. If there are differences they won't be much, but it may mean making up adapters or cutting pieces off and reworking somewhere or other.

The tailpipe shape never changed - all the tailpipes from the silencers are round (and quite large diameter) but have what Lexus describe as 'tail exhaust pipe baffle sub-assembly' pushed on to the end - (exhaust trims to most people). Those are polished stainless steel and oval shape - they all look the same to me, although no doubt many have been replaced. They get in a mess, but with a bit of TLC you can restore them to more or less original condition - they are made of good quality (if a bit thin) stainless steel.

The originals cost upwards of £50 but you can get universal replacement trims for a tenner or so.

I enquired and apparently it won’t fit. Any suggestions John? I believe from Lexus price is north of £700.

Or find out where your exhaust is blowing and see if it's repairable.

Pop over and see these people http://www.jpexhausts.co.uk/

They provide an excellent service - I've had several bits and pieces of exhausts made up by them over the years. They do both mild steel and stainless.
