  1. Guides should be posted within the tutorials section and not stickies. Although I like the idea of have a notable threads type post and only mods add threads that are worthy of a mention and would be very handy to members. I am not a fan of stickies, i believe they should only be sticky for a certain period of time then fall back to a normal post. Stickies make the forum section look outdated and cumbersome.
  2. Green Spark Plug Co are good. used them before

  4. Please add what age group you are in so we can see what is the most popular age group of the LOC audience. cheers folks
  5. Hey guys and Gals.. Bit of a Team Lexus Survey going on here... we need to know how you found the Team Lexus website.. was it from a search engine or a link from another site.. we would really be interested to know. Cheers in advance :) your Bud Admin :smilegrin:
  6. Hi Guys Some of you are probably experiencing a slow website the last couple of days. I am trying to get this sorted asap and have spent most of today trying to get it sorted. It always happens on a bank holiday. Please bear with us.
  7. All web servers will have a max limit to prevent the server going under extreme heavy load. Basically the setting only allowed 150 concurrent connections, so everyone was put in a queue. I have increased this level and the server load level has gone up, but not enough to make it slow performance wise. Working very well.
  8. yes, basically the server was throttled and was running out of worker connections, i increased the maximum workers and it has improved. I will keep an eye on it.
  9. I have tweeked the website's ECU and now sticking her on the dyno LOL Looking better already.. i will keep tweeking. I am no longer getting reports of downtime, must of had 2000 reports, my phones ringtone was on fire. Funny how it gets fixed at the end of the bank holiday weekend. Just typical
  10. cheers John yes i noticed that when i was out at tescos.. stressed out in the bread isle :D
  11. not at all.. guaranteed to happen lol had to cancel a trip last minute as not resolved. All else fails then a new server on the way.

    How Do I Upload Photos to Topics / Subjects

    Using a 3rd part image source is not really ideal and we soon restrict this. This is due to the photobucket issue that has rendered 1000's of posts on this site useless due to the new photobucket restrictions. We suggest using the club upload feature, they are much more safer here.
  15. yes i have heard of shortages. Luckily my local shell had a fresh delivery. Won't be long before they will get their delivery.
  16. AMCI Global tested the Lexus LC 500 against the Aston Martin DB11 V12 Coupe with pro driver Justin Bell at the wheel for closed-course lap times, slalom and wet cornering. And what’d they uncover?

    nice one sean. yes the update will take a while on some phones as it updates itself.
  18. the only thing that has changed is the front end to encompass the community and the right hand side on the topic views. The forums are exactly the same. @sorcerer i have re-added the topic menu back. I have removed the videos and added news below that. We do need to have these to keep the website circulating, but at least the topics are back :D

  23. The all-new Lexus LS 500h has been primed for launch with the announcement of the UK model range, headline equipment specifications and prices. The fifth generation of the flagship saloon promises to reinterpret luxury for 21st century customers, bringing style and innovation inspired by the Lexus the brand pillars of brave design, exhilarating performance, imaginative technology and Takumi craftsmanship. Offered exclusively as a petrol-electric hybrid featuring the Lexus Multi Stage Hybrid System that made its debut this year in the LC coupe, the new LS will be available in four equipment grades: LS 500h, LS 500h Luxury, LS 500h F Sport and LS 500h Premier. All-wheel drive will be available for the Luxury and Premier models. On-the-road prices start at £72,595. Equipment highlights As befits a model that sits at the pinnacle of the Lexus range, the new LS offers an exceptional level of equipment features at every grade level. The LS 500h sets the tone with 20-inch cast alloy wheels, ultra-slim triple-LED headlights with Automatic High Beam, Lexus Premium Navigation with a 12.3-inch EMV display and 12-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control with nanoe air quality control and a 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor with pedestrian alert. The front seats have 20-way power adjustment, smooth leather upholstery and integrated heating and ventilation. The Luxury model benefits from four-zone climate control with Climate Concierge and nanoe technology, a bespoke 23-speaker Mark Levinson QLI Reference Surround audio system and integrated heating and ventilation for both front and rear seats. Fine semi-aniline leather upholstery and 28-way front seat adjustment are also included in the specification. The LS 500h F Sport amplifies the new model’s dynamic capabilities, both in its exclusive styling and its sophisticated vehicle control systems. On the outside it’s distinguished by its dedicated alloy wheel design and lower-profile tyres, spindle grille with intricate mesh pattern of L-motif elements, visible black brake callipers stamped with the Lexus name and jet black plating details for the side sills, front bumper and boot lid. In the cabin the three-spoke steering wheel and shift selector have a perforated leather finish and there is an F Sport combi meter with a moving ring design that uses display technology first developed for Lexus’s LFA supercar. The F Sport seats are finished in smooth leather. On the technical front the Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management is extended to include control of the F Sport’s Variable Gear Ratio Steering and Dynamic Rear Steering. The LS 500h Premier delivers the fullest expression of Omotenashi, the Japanese tradition of hospitality that inspires features that prioritise the comfort and safety of everyone on board. This can be witnessed in Shiatsu massage functions that are provided for the rear seat and in the front seat Relaxation Package; a rear-seat entertainment system; and rear seats with 22-way adjustment and an extending ottoman leg rest. It also benefits from Lexus Safety System+ A, Lexus’s most sophisticated package yet of active safety and driver assistance systems.
