  2. hi marcin congratulations on your purchase m8,stunning motor & like the pics. welcome to Loc :winky: john
  3. Thanx for that john appreciate the reply...would you say that maybe thats the reason why i have the problem starting that i have said about in th topic....... Hopefully getting the HID`S from HIDdirect dno whether to go for the 6000 kelvin or 4500 k one`s think they are HB4 bulbs?? i dont know m8,im not a mechanic but if it was me, i personnally would follow robs advice,as i have found his advice 1st rate in the few years i have been in LOC got my 6000k h.i.d.s from them...big improvement in light output with hint of blue john
  4. Ok cheers rob i was thinking its the battery.its not sluggish when i first turn it over but then do it again and its kinda slowish when it does fire up...what is the best one battery to get i want to fit HID`S so best to get higher amp battery ?? if i change the battery would it set my alarm of and balls my radio up (standard lexus one) and do you change & swap over one wire at a time from old battery to the new one? hi mate i have just bought a new battery,bosch s4 which is asia fit from o.e.m & 60 amps which i run h.i.d kit. no it wont set of alarm or mess up radio which isnt coded, but you will have to reset your fav stations disconnent neg lead first & reconnect last onto new battery john
  5. welcome to l.o.c happy
  6. the new bosch S range are replacement units ...S4 is asia silver.....garage followed bosch database which came back with two battery types for lexus is200.... S5 which was wrong...after measuring o.e.m battery, bosch S4 was correct one & fitted perfectely...
  7. been back to garage who agreed it was the wrong size,they orderd bosch S5 battery using car reg on bosch database. after measuring o.e.m battery bosch S4 was correct one thanks stav john
  8. hi guys...just bought new bosch s range battery & im having difficulty securing it due to fact that new battery is higher than o.e.m. is there any aftermarket nuts that will extend through battery bar onto bolt....the bolt is level with top of battery so i cant use existing nuts. any thoughts appreciated. cheers john
  9. congratulations m8, i remember feeling the same when i bought mine & it still makes me smile. enjoy & welcome to l.o.c john
  10. Can't actually remember how much it cost, think it was £50-60, got it from Allparts (they're really helpful, great prices and have everything in stock). If you're thinking of changing the battery, this is definitely the one to go for :) tnx for that..will add new battery to shopping list john
  11. i know m8,its annoying like i said ive used wiring harness,checked its properly earthed & problem still exists on first putting on lights after starting car then fine after flicking switch a few times with equal light pattern & no flickering of light from drivers side came to conclussion it must be battery after what lexus said & fact h.i.d instructions state it may be battery which should be 70 amph...apoligies if im waffling how much did you pay for bosch asiasilver & what amp is it m8(hope you dont mind me asking). cheers john
  12. to be honest ryan..i have used the wiring harness & problem still exists,less frequently since i took harness back off as einstein says i think there is not enought curreny on start up,which in my case after flicking light switch on/off a few times with engine running..drivers side then lights up i was told by lexus at recent 50k service that battery was not as good as it should be,so will defo upgrade to 70 amp battery shortly & hopefully that will cure problem john :)
  13. i have same problem with drivers side not lighting sometimes,it is not the kit or poor earth with mine ...but poor battery which will be replaced at some point. instructions with kit states if this problem occurs it is most likely to be the battery which should bo 70 amp...after research on this site i found that o.e.m battery is 45 amp. hpoe that helps john
  14. hi m8 i have parrott 3200ls kit fitted to mine...excellent kit. i had local i.c.e shop fit mine using the front door speakers which mutes stereo when receiving or making calls manually or via voice recognition.......charged £60 fitted mine to the plate of existing phone cradle next to stereo john
  15. hi m8 i bought mine from hids direct & not had any problems.. john
  16. hi dani & welcome to l o c :winky: good choice, we want pics :D john
  17. hi anto & welcome to l o c : :D
  18. hello & welcome to l o c :)
  19. hi m8 & welcome to l o c great choice keep us updated & best of luck john
  20. hi m8, didnt know the 300 came with full leather, the is200 se & sport come with i/2 leather 1/2 suede combo which is best in my opinion,especially in hot weather(not sticking to seats) the biggest difference between the 200 & 300 is the power. if i had the chance to choose know it would be the 300, i am looking at getting a supercharger which is probably the best mod for the 200. the 300 also comes with xenon h/lights as standard...i think at the end of the day it is what you want that matters hope that helps & good look with search & keep us updated :winky: john
  21. you can do it yourself, just a few retaining clips/screws to undo. :winky: none of the front is ripped off, just undo retaining screws & replace center grill with new sport grill.
  22. recently fitted mintex on rear, lot less brake dust, cost £22 delivered from ebay.
