  1. Thank you for that. I may get one soon. Drove it home tonight and it was perfect, just as I remembered. Amazing for a 10 year old car.
  2. Oh and Also I wondered if anyone had a LE grill they wanted to sell? And is there an iPod adapter yet?
  3. I sold my last one 4 years ago and just decided to get another, I pick it up tonight it's granite sky and a cream sport (just before facelift) reg X258 GRF it was owned by a doctor first (apatently) then a Toyota or lexus service manager. Both times it had private number plates on (I won't list those regs on here as it's not fair to them) Does anyone know this car? Many thanks and hello Craig
  4. Do you mean that I don't need him any more? . . . . . It depends on how you drive your 250!?
  5. probably Strathcaron Blue. I think they only did 2 blues, royal saphire pre 2001 and Strathcaron after 2001. you will only need 2K to charge it but get insurance quotes first as alot of companies arnt interested if your under 25 on a IS Lex, although Auto may help.
  6. Well you could have called yourself Mary and put a nice pic of some random woman from the internet as your avatar, it's never too late! actualy, thinking about it, it's amazing what you can do with plastic surgery nowerdays! anyway, hello! I do like the Altezza, well I'd have to as I have an english (slow, excentric and quite boring) version.
  7. good for you. It's good that some people can do it. so how do you afford the Lex then? I manage an Orange Mobile Phone Shop. I am looking for another job at the moment. Well as of today it looks like I havn't got a job, I've been made redundant as a new company is taking over, they've offered me a new job and said they wanted me then insulted me with the pay. Me thinks it's time to get out!
  8. good plan, although looking at your drive, it's hard to belive you want something to resemble a german car?! :winky:
  9. sorry I'm struggling too as I can only read english!? I like the Orange as it's easy on the eyes at night while driving.
  10. I didn't like the strip in the grill in the first pic but that's probably because it looks a faded pink it looks good in this picture though. not sure wether It looks better or worse than just plain black in my opinion. it certainly doesnt look though. :D
  11. LOL Looks good. why do you have a red rim on your grill?
  12. It could be that the pads arnt put in properly like said above, calipers don't tend to squeel. they bind, or sease up. jack the car up and spin the wheel and see if it's free or not. by the way there probably not seased anyway because the garage should have noticed if they were when replacing the pads as it's dificult to push the piston back. to sum up, it's probably not the calipers fault.
  13. do a search but here's one topic that may help: lost key
  14. who is 'Chip Foose' he's a person not a company. Chip Foose is the guy that does all the cars on discoverie's 'overhaulin' he designs one off wheels as well as the cars so I wondered if he's branched out to branding his designed wheels. just wondered, thanks for letting me know.
  15. No. 1. Go Back to a Sony Ericsson mobile phone because there great! No. 2. They will look great on a black car, seen it done before on an IS.
  16. I don't like chromes full stop, but mainly because the there too detailed so they just look to much when chromed because it pics out every facet. on another note are they foose as in 'chip foose' alloys?
  17. Dito, 0-60's are for corsa owners who race round town from trafic lights because there car won't go any faster. I owned an 88 wide bodied Mitsubishi Starion, similar to the origional MR2 but alot faster. and alot better looking! :D :winky: Pictures here. I now drive a Lexus IS200, yes there like chalk and cheese but although the IS is no where near as fast and doesn't handle as well, I love every second of driving it, it's so comfy and I drove to the tip of wales last year, 5 hour drive for us, I got out like I had only been driving for an hour at most. why not get a IS200, manuals are easy to come by and Supercharge it, it's only £1850 inc fitting. supercharger link. Im sure for the price you'll pay for a Altezza RS200 6MT you could buy and supercharge an IS and I think there a touch quicker with half leather/heated seats and all the nice bits. Supercharger info. in fact looking at the stats above it's .1 of a second quicker than the RS to 60 but more importantly the 30ish to 100ish is 8seconds quicker than the standard IS!
  18. when they hit 100K do they blow up then? :D Only you can decide what is best for you. you know what condition it's in. how do you know a low milagae one is going to be any better?
  19. NO DON'T GET ONE!! is that a small hint?! why not? I don't want one but what is wrong with them? :D
  20. Glad to hear you got a good result. TBH, if your son is 1yr 4 months, I wouldnt sugest a dvd type system, you may waste your money as you may sell your car before he can apriciate it. I don't know for sure though as I do not have kids, you will work something out. :D
  21. because it's an ES300 try asking the American Forum as the ES was and is not available here; you will get better and more advice from them.
  22. LOL I wouldn't mind going Isle of Man, I may have to talk to my mate who is going there for the TT.
  23. that made no sense at all just like the rest of lost! I wasn't interested in seing this but if you say it's that good I may have to go.
  24. Charley, Oscar, Charley, Killo! Kazi! :P Blah Blah Blah! yes OSX is great and I love it but I was just trying to explain what something is, anyone will realise how good it is if they use it so I'm not going to bad mouth Windows all the time, It's un profetional. Anyone will make there own decision after using it. :D
