  1. hopefully this will spark a sensible row/debate with the dealer and their bloody robbing costs for parts
  2. mine was stood for 1.5 yrs that I know of and failed the MOT on loose rear seat and flexi pipes front, the bloke who had it before me put it in for the MOT and it failed on the front wheel bearing and because he works in Saudi it was stood for 1.5yrs on his sisters drive, its cost a few bob to bring her back to life but worth every penny
  3. well I was shocked at the UK dealers price £412 +vat each and not even fitted ( that's robbery ) but im more interested in getting just the ball joints so I can rebuild my own so im looking round and if I get any info Ill tell you, that link was for the series 1 this is for later ones, same place it seems they do deliver to the UK take a look at the first link on this
  4. as the heading says I was wondering if it were possible to buy the ball joints and fit them myself ( for future reference ) I have new ones fitted recently and im keeping the old ones so I can referb them which Im sure a 10 ton press will do the job
  5. service history is a must because suspension parts are VERY expensive as are most parts, timing belt and water pump should have been done if over 100k as for imports I think they are called the celsior rather than the LS 400 but the same car only thing I noticed by some guys is the import is limited to 112 mph
  6. just press the CD button and the aerial doesn't go up, the aerial only goes up when you press the power button because that's automatic radio mode
  7. 1.5 liters isn't that much an will burn off quickly but the oil should be 0W/40 or 30 which is optimum
  8. very true my rover 827 sterling auto does worse than the lex at 15 to 25 mpg so im very happy with the lex
  9. no change on mine but I don't drive long distance mainly town and country roads, there is a difference on the gear changes like more responsive and no change to RPM unless I drop the overdrive ( of course that would get less MPG ) so it sounds like its a good idea for the PWR/ECT to be on on distance driving
  10. I always have to pull the release lever twice to make the light go off and fully checked the system and no faults so it must be normal
  11. you do need to do the reset thingy so the SEC is on and not - - - then its like starting all over again
  12. so you have the manual if so you were reading page 117? to get SEC back on ( which means security ) press the power button in keep it in and hold button 1 and 6 this will reset it then you can try again, as Steve says the last 3 digits of the VIN are used in most cases but if its been altered then you will have to take the radio into a place that can access the CMOS and get the code out cost is approx £25 ( don't take it to the dealers ) they send it away and you could add many £££££££ to the bill
  13. mine was valued by glasses guide ( the insurance told me the value )
