  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks that worked. Somehow the brake was put in to manual mode. I didn't even know it could do that.
  3. Need to mind the caravan going under low bridges though 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
  4. Today I was very glad I did. I think next time a car with no spare wheel option will be a deal breaker for me.
  5. Hi Jeegnesh, Just a thought I have a set of roof rails on my car. A set of bars and a bike cerrier will be a lot cheaper than a tow bar. Bri
  6. Today
  7. In that case, maybe an IS or NX would make more sense? Bear in mind the NX is almost as big as the third gen RX?
  8. I see your logic, but my fuel is reclaimed at the relevant AFR rate, so it’s 14 pence max for diesel. RX 450h as a 2ltr + petrol allows 22p. Also unless it’s 2016 or newer the car would be Euro 5 which means paying for the London ULEZ and any other cities that follow their lead i.e Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham, Derby and Southampton. Petrols only need to be Euro 4 to be exempt.
  9. I've sold my F30 320d for the same reason - ULEZ! And that it was hitting 100k miles. Just got the Gs450h a few days ago and i'm in love. Whole different world. They're amazing cars! MPG won't be as good as the diesel but that v6 engine OMG!
  10. When my car was serviced a few weeks ago it was suggested by Cheltenham Lexus that I get the front brakes re-checked after about 5 thousand miles rather than having them changed then. Lo time came to pass and I had finished an appointment early today so rang and asked if i could call in on my way home as i would be nearby. Popped in with the car and after a short wait shiny new discs and a set of front pads fitted. With my Gold Discount a saving of over £50. Well happy. Got a quote for replacing my stone shattered Grill badge - circa £198 if they can do it without dropping the bumper. Another £100 if that is needed. Will probably bite the bullet and get it done.
  11. Welcome to Europe's Leading Lexus Club! Please Enjoy!

  12. Think it may be to do with the fact its hauling 2 tonnes around? Thats why I was thinking diesel estate if you need the space at that mileage. 40-50mpg would be quite cost effective I would think?
  13. Welcome to my world, two meetings and some driving in the middle. My Diesel X5 is no better than the RX on fuel, plus petrol is cheaper. Servicing every 4-5 weeks, are you sure?I’m thinking it’s more like 11-13 myself 😉 Out if curiosity why would you choose diesel?
  14. I went for Osram, I believe with some discount they were £46 instead of normal £80, so no that much different from generic brands. As well considering how difficult it is to get to the bulbs I would rather spend few £ more (or over long term the same) and save myself few hours of taking out air boxes and washer fluid fillers. If original bulbs are anything to go by lasted 10 years as well... now I still have 7+ years of worry free lights. As well Nightbreakers made massive difference at first - I had to check few times I am not running main beam.
  15. I used to have a 2.2 4 wheel steer prelude. It was some thing called a motegi in black with a bodykit and leather interior. It was a nice car.
  16. Success! well apart from 1 thing small issue. So it seems my door lock issue is now resolved by replacing the "interior fuse box", I installed it again but with the same part number, everything now works except for the door locks are not auto unlock when I put it in P. It just stays locked, I think theres some info how I can program this myself so will dig into it. Everything else is back to normal.
  17. What do you guys think of the matching rubber mats? I added them, the original carpet mats are underneath them but the rubber ones are much easier to clean.
  18. Anyone run an ipod classic in their NX? I have a strange problem with mine in that I cant seem to select songs from albums. 1. If I go browse all songs all artist and all album or a variation of this it will list all the songs in the ipod in an order which I dont understand but is always the same (similar to the previous RX i had) Now if i select an artist then album or simply an album and choose a song, it will default to the song number in the first list i.e if the song is first in the album i select it will play song 1 from list at 1 above and so on. This happen with anyone else ipod? Cheers Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  19. Sure will list it here when I'm ready to sell. I'm really after a late manual 2.2 Honda Prelude. It's quite hard finding a decent one of those but when I do the Lexus will have to go.
  20. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your great looking LS.
  21. Lexus will compete in the annual 24 Hours of Nürburgring, with its LC coupe tackling ‘The Green Hell’ for the second consecutive year Following its inaugural running at the event in 2018, in which the car completed the full 24 hours, the Gazoo Racing team has put in a rigorous testing programme, covering thousands of kilometres, with the aim of improving the overall performance package and completing more laps in 2019. Taking part in the production-based SP-Pro class, the Lexus LC will be piloted by the same four driver line-up as in 2018, further aiding the car’s development. Endurance veteran Takeshi Tsuchiya leads Nurburgring expert, Naoya Gamo, alongside rising stars, Takamitsu Matsui and Yuichi Nakayama. Changes to the car over the 2018 event, during which the Gazoo team endured a four hour period of pit work in order to complete the race, include a number of aerodynamic updates, body enhancements to maximise low-slung weight and work to optimise overall performance of the brakes, tyres and electronics. Engine development work has also been undertaken to reduce friction and increase output from the 2UR-GSE engine. Naoya Gamo has been instrumental in steering the LC’s set-up for 2019 and believes the coupe to be much improved, with the relationship between car and driver far smoother than last year: “Through testing in Japan and Germany, I hope to pursue more than just better lap times. I hope we can build a car that is more comfortable and fun to drive.” Chiefly, for Lexus, the development work put into the Gazoo Racing LC coupe all contributes to informing development of the technologies used within its road-going range. The Gazoo Racing LC’s engine is a modified version of the 5.0-litre powerplant found in the 10-speed, 471bhp LC500. The Nürburgring 24 Hours takes place over the weekend of 22-23 June, with competitors tackling the full 25km, 170-plus corner circuit. Toyota Gazoo Racing and Lexus have competed in the event since 2007, with the aim of refining team members and making ever better cars.
