Good And Bad Day

Robin H

Recommended Posts

well the good part about today was that the car past it's MOT with no problem apart from the advisory that I need 2 new tyre's for the back (which are on order)

bad part, come back from shopping to find that I now have a small dent and what looks to be a small crease in the front wing of the car :angry: looks like a 4x4 as it's to high up to be done by a car. you can see where the cars just rubbed down the wing, looks like there's some paint smeared from the bumper, so will see if it will polish out

now looks like I've got to find on of those guys that can push all the little dents out :yawn:

Sorry to hear that mate. Car parks are **** **** mate. I've got a couple of little dings from car parks and probably a few very light scratches which will hopefully polish out after I've done the full monty on the car.

I now take the work van when I go shopping or I park across 2 parking bays. It pisses everyone off but ****** 'em. Aslong as I don't get any more marks on my beloved car.

unlucky bud,hope you get the cosmetics sorted soon.what tyres you going for,i got the warning on my rears also.

Toyo Proxes T1-S are going to be fitted as this is whats already on there,

I've never had any problems with them, so why change

as for the dent I know a few peeps that have had the same problem. so just gonna ask if they can recommend anyone. or pop in to my local Toyota deal to ask who they use, or how much it would cost for them to do it. which I'm sure won't be cheap

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.

      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”

      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.

      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.

      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
