  1. Hi, I have been kicking around this site for a while now and I thought it was about time I actually posted something. Here is my guide on how to fit a tow bar to an IS200. Hopefully, everything in this guide is correct, if you see something wrong please tell me. I removed all the boot linings so that I could clean the car out and have a good look around. I took the next few pic’s to show the various wiring connectors and the two drainage tubes coming down from the sunroof. You can also see the alarm siren and remote opening ECU tucked up in the "C" pillars. 290 291 292 294

  2. I took the plunge in back in December and ordered my new company car. An IS 300h F-Sport in white. After what seemed like forever i took delivery in March and i love it. Unfortunately so does my wife.... So much so that on Friday we part exchanged her VW EOS and in 15 days time we'll be collecting her new CT 200h f-sport, white, premium nav, sunroof. Does that mean we now have Alexus's are is it Lexi? :-)

  3. A nice birthday treat indeed - looks very good. I had a couple of w126s myself - a white 420SEL (2000-2012) and a black 500SEL (2005-2013). Both now sold and replaced by two Mk 3 LS400s. I liked the w126s - hence the long period of ownership - but on balance I think I prefer the LS400s. I hope the keep them for a long time too. Enjoy the w220!!

  4. John hi , the remote fobs you describe sound the same as my Mk3 ones , as for the keys if the non Lexus one is not a transponder key that has been programmed for your car then it will behave as you describe . I can only assume that pushing certain pedals overides the immobilizer in some way to allow the car to start ,if that is the case it is not much of a theft deterrent . I have had a spare key done at a local key cutting shop, the wife looks after this in case I lock my keys in the boot again , the key opens all the doors and turns on the ignition but wont start the engine . Will have to

  6. Ever noticed how they never include Labour charges for poor old Edd. If I knew where he hung out I would book my cars in there. Parts only, rather appealing. Mike

  7. Do you know that rather than buying a new 3 button key, you can convert your 2 button one? no soldering is required,just get a 3 button key case and a repacement 3 button rubber. The 3rd button is already in place on circuit board.On the denso key anyway.

  9. It is recommended that the engine ECU is reset after any engine performance modifications have been made to the vehicle, including using a higher octane fuel, to accelerate the learning of any new parameters. Resetting the ECU will also clear any stored error codes, however if you have a fault with your vehicle it is advisable that these codes are retrieved rather than wiped as they may help in diagnosing the problem. Make sure the ignition is turned off Remove the engine bay fuse box cover Remove the 20Amp/25Amp EFI fuse Remove the 15Amp ETCS fuse Wait 30 seconds Re-insert the two
