    Lexus IS300H service cost

    Tried to barter mate.. However cost of aircon gas has tripled and my mate who is a HVAC specialist would charge me 80 quid.. so for the sake of 35 extra, if anything is iffy Lexus will have the responsibility.. The car is serviced for the sake of the existing warranty.

    Lexus IS300H service cost

    £495 for a 20K 0r 2 Year service - this woas brake fluid flush, Oil and filters... Then I paid another £115 for an aircon refresh and also £15 loan car excess..
  3. For the life of me I cannot see it on mine (TPMS Reset) (2016 MY)

    Help Required (IS300H)

    For the complete switch I was looking at around 160 quid which I had no choice as you can see some monkey at lexus broke the trim and couldn't get seperately. Glad you got it sorted
  5. For a defined part number use Lexus EU Tech docs, enter VIN number and goto the EPC section. This should verify the part numbers. (Have to pay to have access) Then goto and check the price - shipped from JPN is around £200 quid - then you have the pleasure of Parcelfarce UK charging VAT and handling. Still cheaper than UK prices.. Part number for my fsport WITH seat memory (2016 reg) is

    Help Required (IS300H)

    Part was £20 that was the whole assembly.. I believe I sold Adrian this part lol.. I bought a brand new assembly as someone from Lexus (prior buying this ex demo car) superglued a thin part of the trim as it was removed incorrectly.. it bugged me and was too late to point it out when I bought the car cos I didn't notice it.. D'oh
  7. See the connection?? lol.. Yep twas me bought it in Jan.. Never programmed it as my buddy at the same time bought one for his.. His pairing failed despite Techstream bonging away saying it did.. Then I dug a little further about frequencies and searching Denso's certification for RTTE for Europe. So yeah its me.. *sigh* Oh well as I say crap happens lol
  8. Joys of having NO kids mate so extra disposable income 🙂
  9. I keep my house keys when at work in my drawer, so just the car key will stay on my person during the day. If me and the wife are out together of course the house keys are in her handbag lol
  10. Ahoy! I really like the Lexus Key Card from other models and decided to take the plunge of obtaining an 'EU' Version for the IS300H. Paired it up with Techstream and 2 minutes later process finished and it works! I'll be brave and say how much and yes there maybe haters out there that its a waste of money etc but I like it. (about £400 quid) - Yes it doesn't have buttons and yes you cannot turn off the transmitter signal to avoid cloning but its slim and fits in my suit pocket. Part Numbers are 89904-53601 - Card (2014 onwards MY) 89904-53600 for MY13-14 69515-30350 - Blank metal key - A competant car key cutter can replicate it NB. US market and JPN Market DOES not work so don't be tempted by price. They run on a 315MHZ frequency and UK/EU/Most parts of the world runs on 433MHZ due to bandwidth licensing laws.

    Service - Brake Discs

    I seriously doubt if the discs are covered as they are also considered a 'consumable' Unless its a design fault etc, my opinion it will not be covered.
  12. Did you get the complete kit? as I believe the spoiler comes with new boot springs to compensate the weight. rear high level light cover and of course the all important template to drill!
  13. Its a genuine spoiler, but for the US market. If the UK one its in excess of 600 quid.. Slightly different styling. So £20 what you paid if genuine is a bargain

    New Lexus's

    From a Product Management perspective deciding to scrap a product contains some certain factors: ROI - Return on Investment - Is the product profitable in that particular country/market i.e worth doing with all the Marketing campaigns etc factored in Sell out figures- obviously this is very important - to gauge again whether its worth continuing your product OPEX costs etc SWOT - Analysis , Strengths, Weakness Opportunities and Threats - Again, Scrapping the 200T and introducing a 300, 350 etc - is it viable vs other Petrol competitors (Probably not) 3 Year Strategy - This is already set in stone in Japan for the UK - So scrapping IS200T was more than likely on the cards for a very long time Did the IS200T do well in Japan ? We are only a handful of countries in the world that are RHD that has a viable market. If a collective figure is way below forecast, they need to cut their losses and scrap it as not making money is not on their agenda! Making these cars take alot of planning - If its not making the company money then there is no point in making it. Focus manpower and increase production on a line that is far more good selling and again - Profitable... Know your market - Does the UK audience/consumer require an IS300/350 big petrol engines? again probably not... Thats what I would do anyway ...
