  1. Friend from China.. Car is IS200T however he had other things in mind if you look closer...
  2. Haven't looked at in depth but normally there should be a diagram of the pinout numbers on the female side of the plug?
  3. I find it hard to believe the piston in the caliper has seized - Overkill if you ask me, to replace the entire caliper. Try a reliable independant to 'clean' up the brakes and see what happens. On a side note, I upgraded my 300H brakes for the same price using the GS/IS3500 4 piston caliper along with brembo pads and ATE discs (from 296mm diameter to 342mm!) If you want to go the original route import from Japan even with paying duties etc its alot cheaper than Lexus UK
  4. Depends where the 'fault' is mate. Might not be faulty and the caliper sliders could do with just a clean. I would try that first. Normally this is the case. *fingers crossed* I doubt if the piston itself has seized.. You would know this once you have the wheels and pads out.
  5. People tend to use double sided tape from the 2nd Gen versions of the IS and to compliment the "aluminium" look the foot rest from the RCF or GSF are also 'double sided' on
  6. Best bet mate to get access to diagrams is to use Lexus Techdocs (have to pay for sessions) but its useful to screen grab the stuff you need as I believe you cannot 'save'. https://www.lexus-tech.eu/
  7. If youre old like me Fast Lane and Performance Car were the best I've read.. Thats how I got into cars at a very young age as my uncle used to give me his copies when he was finished with them.
  8. Bring back Chris Goffey and WIlliam Wollard lol *old age alert*
  9. Devils advocate - I don't find The Grand Tour engaging either?! Too scripted imo
  10. For me the winter time I'm averaging around 42mpg, in the summer I'm probably hitting 45mpg or so
  11. No ashtray mate. In fact theres not a huge amount of storage in the 3IS unfortunately...
  12. Theres 2 in the rain sensor part.. the black square is for the wipers and theres a tiny lens underneath that. Lexus tested these components as I was having "blue sky syndrome" with my auto setting as they were activating in really bright weather.
  13. Indulge me as I can only see a speaker by the drivers A pillar?
  14. Yes it works in collaboration for 2 functions. To sense check the auto climate setting i.e. I think fan speed and also for the headlight sensor. It gives off different voltages 0-5V depending on intensity.
  15. That sensor is dual function, just like the Hondas. Technology nothing special there.. Also the auto headlight main sensor is by the rear view mirror.
