many thanks.

Hi Gary and welcome to the club ;I'm sure you will enjoy your 250C especially when the sun is shining .I have owned mine for almost 5 years and it is a great car especially for Continental holidays ( to be continued when the present fiasco has subsided )         I am afraid I can't be much help to you as I carry out all my own service work ,the only time I visited a dealer was for the airbag recall.It might be worth you checking this has been carried out ,it may have been missed if the car has been away from the main dealer system. With regard to the roof I have not had that problem, the only company I have had recommended is Cayman Autos in Redhill ,I don't know how far you are from them ,they have a good web site worth looking at if you have queries

Regards 

Dave

 There is a YouTube video with info on how to fix the rattle, it does unfortunately involve duct tape!

A friend of mine has an is250c and had the same rattle which he fixed with this method.  Not what you'd expect to do on a Lexus but apparently it works!

It Also worked for me when I had my Is250c,the rattle had been the only annoyance in an otherwise lovely car.
