Not A Good Day


 Share

Recommended Posts

Last night I went round a friends house. Parked in the street. Locked the car fine. Went to go home and the central locking would not respond from the key. I had two options, ask my friend for a lift home to get a spare key or open the door with the key. Went for option 2. The GS alarm/horn is loud, more so at 1am :o . Got in started it up then after 30 seconds the alarm stopped so I drove home. Then the remote locking was fine and has been fine today!

Went to go to work this morning and noticed that some :tsktsk: had thrown an egg at the side of the car whilst I was out. Quickly washed off the egg and shell and went to work. Got home tonight and had a closer look and there is now a semi-circle of white dots which are pits in the paint back to the primer :tsktsk: :tsktsk: :tsktsk: :tsktsk: :tsktsk: :tsktsk:

Sounds like you two have had a s**t day!

:offtopic:

Colin, out of interest - I currently have a 03 GS430se on loan from Lexus while they sort my car at their HQ. This car vibrates around motorway speeds just like my old GS300 did - interesting eh - doesn't seem like wheel balance as it transmits through the floor more than the steering wheel.

By the way the chaps that pisked it up agreed he could hear the noise - the brakes juddered the paint wasn't up to standard and the wind noise was worse than in the car he gave me???

Hiya all, just found the site so thought i would join :D

Just brought myself a IS 200 Sport, Granite Sky :D :D what a beauty she is.

Had her 2 weeks, then the snow came :huh: :tsktsk: Span the back end and came to rest in the side of a bus :crybaby:

Still waiting for the garage to finish repairing her, not a good start to my lexus experience. Well things can only get better

Can the marks be removed with T Cut or Sratch X type polish or is it too deep to polish out? :huh:

I've got the surface scratches out but there are pits that go back into the primer.

Good thing it never happened outside your own house, Since I now know where you live... could of pointed a finger

Happened the night before Steve ;)
