My Is300 With Pics


Recommended Posts

Hi im Matt.

2 weeks ago i brought my is300. This is my first lexus as i have always had rovers but i did have a BMW for a bit.

Im a hands on guy and all of my cars have never stayed standard for long. I brought this Lexus as i wanted something rwd with some poke.

Gave it a full service last Saturday and i also painted the calipers and fitted the Lexus decals.

4 Problems with the car

* Tail gate going rusty

* The brake dust is shocking. Only takes a day for the wheels to go black.

* Automatic gearbox is very laggy. (i want it manual)

* Car is under powered as a 3.0 liter. (slow)

Apart from the problems, im loving it and the build quailty is A1 compeared to the rovers i had :D

Heres some pics.

Welcome to LOC your car looks very nice.

Brake dust is bad on the standard pads as i have the same problem on both of mine.

Maybe we both should invest in green or red pad or even greddy pads would be better.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

My previous rovers where a rover 25 and then a VVC coupe. I also have a VVC mini which is very unique.

But like i said there no comparisment from a Lexus to a rover but sadly the 1.8 coupe is faster than a 3.0 Lexus which seems crazy. But the Lexus is not about speed so i just cruise every where now.
