  1. His name by the way is not Paul Foster, but Paul Frost, commonly known as “Frosty “ for what it is worth
  2. LS430 Air suspension

    Hi Robert, I would describe mine as the same, I just enjoy the armchair comfort and rarely change it.
  3. Hi , I in the past have recommended him, and use him, having been there only last week to replace a front strut. I find him completely honest and he has a mechanic, Colin who works for him, who is competent and through Paul breaking LS’s has good knowledge. There is an MOT workshop next door to him, and I watched one of their engineers testing a car, and he was very thorough, which is what I want. So as far as I am concerned ,for somebody to take care of my LS, I am sorted !!
  4. LS430 AUX, possible?

    Good luck with that one. Did exactly that and it did not work..... cheap Chinese cr*p, which is why I went the way I did, spent considerably more, but have a quality system that works as it should.
  5. LS430 AUX, possible?

    Hi Alex, as far as I can recall, mine looked very similar. The Bluetooth was integrated as far as I am aware, and not being technical, I just pair it to my iPhone, and it works. i have searched my eBay account, which is how I guess I found it but can’t locate purchase. Good luck, Rgds, Roger
  6. LS430 AUX, possible?

    Hi Alexander fitted mine no problems and it continues to work fine. At the time I recall ordering , the model year and type was listed and I just went ahead and ordered it. Sorry I can’t be more help, rgds, Roger
  7. I totally agree that 600 miles is a max day distance. I have just begun my first leg,of a European adventure and have no intention of exceeding that limit, there just is no point. So far first 250 miles showing 31.4 miles per gallon, and effortless 'Lexus' drive. Eurotunnel on Monday morning, cheers, Roger
  8. John, they were not in danger of needing to be replaced, and I would probably have run them safely for another 3-5k miles in this country. However as tyres wear so does the potential of a puncture and the advice I was given, advisory as it was, I took, more on the basis of cost in an emergency situation. I think with hindsight it was probably also more sensible from a safety point of view. Had I been advised to change them for use in this country, on safety grounds, I would have done so without question.
  9. I think I was just making the point that it is cheaper to buy 4 new tyres in advance, not through the Indie who advised by the way , than risk a blow out, from tyres that had seen their best years. As Malc says would have been getting close to legal limit, and I think there were cracks appearing. The comments were made in good faith, and yes I do have full breakdown cover, but you are not going to be able to buy at the prices mentioned on here, for one tyre in an emergency. The 4 Michelins cost me £480 fitted. I also have better peace of mind to have ticked of a potential problem.
  10. I am leaving a week Monday for a 2 month trip around France and Spain. I am very attentive to my tyre conditions, but when I visited a Lexus indie recently, and told him of my plans, he advised to fit 4 new tyres in the basis that if I had a blow out in France, it could cost me more than a new set of 4 tyres here. I have just fitted 4 new Michelin Primacy 3, just trust I now don't have a puncture, but I do carry a spare. Sorry to hear of Norman's problems.
  11. Paul, have a chat with Paul Frost at Lexusspares direct. There is not much he does not know about LS 430's. His no is 07590 072646 Cheers, Roger
  12. I agree with you I thought it was cheep.
  13. The car mats are designed to be able to be washed in a washing machine and come up like new. I took mine to a launderette which had a large drum machine then dried them on the washing line.
  14. Paul it is highly durable, and will last a long time, I understand. Most of the top Powerboats, Sunseeker etc., are wrapped. Being on the sea is an extremely hostile environment and they take it no problem. A big advantage is if you scratch or damage it, you just cut a piece out and put a new piece in, plus it always looks shiny, like new.
  15. I have to agree. Am taking my LS 430 to France and Spain, leave uk 22nd May, back 12th July. Am not complacent, or wishing to tempt fate, but I have total confidence in my car. Malc made a very good point, that major components don't really break down, and minor problems can be sorted with a local mechanic. Have full Nationwide European Cover, just hope I don't need it !!!!!! Cheers, Roger
