I might stick it out on eBay and see what comes up, just have to have the money ready and snap it up quickly.

Oh not too far away at all, thats what I've been doing so far, trying to get all the little things done such as the LED lights and HID's, now I'm getting to the point where thats all done and just leaves the head unit which I want to change. Go for a DVD head unit with screens in the headrests. And maybe new wheels then onto the TRD bumper trims.

My IS has got a sunroof, will have to check that out when the mirror turns up. Want to try and find the easiest place to wire it in without a lot of hassle of dropping the headlining to access things.

You dont have to drop headlining just remove sunroof switch panel.

Oh fair enough, you mean take the power direct from the switch. Thats only a couple of screws to remove. I just want my mirror to turn up now so I can get stuck in wiring it up.

I know what you mean about the employment future mate. Just managed to get my first permanent job back in April last year, previously I had rolling temp contracts, not knowing if I'll have a job in 6 months time. I've done lowering before on my previous cars, they look good but the ride, I hated it. Although I wouldnt mind sports exhaust and new wheels, thinking of a set of 18's.

Ive got 18's on mine. Although my ride is harder its not crazy harsh as its on a medium setting, its not stupidly low and handles really well. Although i didnt get it done by these people if u want a new exhaust system u shud go to Fast Road Conversions in Ashford (check them out on facebook or there website). If i decide to change anything on my exhaust again i will go to them.

Well after much frustration tonight I have got a Auto-dimming mirror in my car (not wired up yet). What a nightmare that was. I originally bought a mirror from a Lexus GS i think it was, (thinking they would use the same mirror in any Lexus) I was wrong.

I then bought another one (at a cheap price off eBay) for the IS, it turned up, was grey rather than beige. So I then set to work dismantling the one I got from the Lexus GS. Compared the GS and the IS auto-dimming mirrors, could only see one difference. The arm that mounts to the windscreen. So off I go to my car to remove my standard mirror and set about removing the arm and fitting it to the GS beige mirror.

Finally done. Have a beige auto-dimming mirror with beige mounting arm. So if anyone wants a grey auto-dimming mirror. I have one spare.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
