    Flat battery - surprising

    Hey, this used to happen to me as I only used to drive my car once a week, it stopped once i started driving more often I think you might have to give the car a bit more of a drive
  2. I wanted to replace my puddle lights on IS250 14 plate F Sport with LED's! I completed the interior ones no probs even brought the propper tools not to damage the plastic surrounds! I had a couple of Led's left over for the puddle lights, at the time I thought, I leave it for another day. Days turned to weeks, weeks turned to months.............I pondered for ages and ages about the pitfalls of doing this particular job, yourself, even watched quite a few youtube vids! and I knew I shouldn't of done it, but something in the back of my head kept saying..........."Go on son it's a easy job course you can do it, just flip out the mirror no probs", ...........anyway my conscience got the better of me......." yeah why not get this job done!" .........mirror came out fine no probs. I thought to myself "What you worrying about".........then when replacing the mirror back, must have put a bit too much pressure on it.........thought i was being really gentle........ know what happens next.....yup.........cracked the mirror!..............................price from Lexus Reading for replacement £322!!!!.....Whats the deal with Lexus not being able to give you the part number??....The chap on the other end of the line said they are not allowed to give it???.......F.F.S!.........I'm sure theres a saying that says if it aint broke............... Now looking on ebay for breakers yards that may have a replacement in VGC.
  3. Hello, I thought i'd open this up to the Lexus community for your opinions I took receipt of a IS250 F Sport '14 plate last year from Lexus Derby with a years warranty ending in March of this year........Fine no problem I said If you give it a uptodate service I'd have it, So Lexus Derby did a 30K service for me at 21,643 before they delivered the car to me. My Current Mileage is 24,452 ..................yup I wrap it in cotton wool and don't drive it too often...................so I've put on about 3k rounded up in the last year I've received an email from Lexus to say a service is due.......................I know its a year but........come on 3K miles...........is it really worth it What would you recommend? Also I've noticed that in the maintenance section in the sat nav screen that 30/3/18 is given as next due date, can this simply be reset, to my choosing???..... or will the world come tumbling down around me If I attempt to mess around with it............LOL..............I used to have a 2000 plate Is200 and it was nowhere near as complicated as this.

    Wow!!!................Looking real good!
  5. Hi All, What do you all clean your interior leather with and how often? and what do you rate as best leather cleaner? I have interior Dark Blue in a is250 f sport. In the hand book simply states water and mild detergent??
  6. Well Toyota Newbury will take it, I have 24k on a '14 plate. have been quoted £485 for a full service, does this sound right in your experiences when taking to Toyota?
  7. Hi Vladimir, I did try Toyota in Bracknell but they told me i had to take it to Lexus for a service?....... I thought a toyota dealership would have been able to perform a service for sure. Is it standard practice for Toyota to do this?............ Or should i just ring a few other Toyota dealerships and see if i get a bit more joy?
  8. Hello, Can anyone recomend an independent Lexus specialist in the Berkshire (South East Area) for Servicing?
  9. Yup all carried out, no problems found after the recall notice, they even carried out Navi software update for free, ....after (thanks Ryaans) just stating that its been glitchy............so can't complain
  10. Hey guys has anyone else seen this??..on lexus-tech.eu....... My IS is booked in next week https://www.lexus-tech.eu/euro5search/Campaigns
