  1. So Whats Your Profession?

    Was an electronics engineer on radars in the RAF for 11 years, but left to pursue a career change into programming. Moved between contract work and permanent roles for the next 11 years within the finance industry. Currently in my 8th year as Lead Business Intelligence Developer for a challenger bank in Reading.
  2. My admiral multicar policy has independent NCD, although I did negotiate a bit of a boost on the second one initially as part of the deal to take the policy. Both are now at max, and I an take it with me if I removed one and go elsewhere.
  3. 2001 GS 430 cut out and wont start

    Great result. Odd it didn't throw a code though.

    good choice with the 1uz, more tuning choice and stronger stock internals than the 2uz or 3uz, if you decided to boost it later as well
  5. 2001 GS 430 cut out and wont start

    You didn’t mention refuelling in the original post. When was it refuelled compared to the cut out and non-starting problem? How low on fuel before the fill up? I’d expect issues to show very quickly if the fuel was so poor that is resulted in not-starting, there’s not a whole heap of fuel in the lines to flush out before hitting fuel from the tank (I don’t recall if there is a loop back to the tank on the 430, which would make it an even shorter time).

    Ok, fair enough. Does the flashing security light go out when the ignition is on? (Just in case the immobiliser has kicked in) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Did the guy say he'd read the codes with his equipment? Were there any codes stored?
  8. Lowering Springs for mkII GS300

    No experience with those brands, but ran RSR lowering springs on my gen 1 GS300 Sport, and GMax lowering springs on my gen 2 gs430 Sport. Both gave no problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Nice looking IS. Aero's are by far the best factory alloys they did on the IS B)
  10. Engine problems at 4000 revs

    Are there any lights on on the dash? Limp mode can do this. Knock sensor problems for example, can cause limp mode to kick in. It is normally accompanied by the Check engine lamp though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  12. Is 250 II brakes upgrade

    I’d say it was a good move. Regardless of the adequacy of the stock brakes, if you don’t have 100% confidence in them when they are pushed hard (I never did on any of my GS’s), then it is worth the work. Even if yours aren’t right in some way, fixing the stock ones, or going for a much better option, is a no brainier IMO. Especially as we all know, the sliding calipers are commonly “problematic” on most lexus models. Unfortunately, I’ve no idea how easily they fit, but it sounds like it has been done before, and the other lexus models that have those calipers as stock, run 17’s as an option.

  15. I have a set with my winter tyres on. As I’ve now sold the GS, I am planning to remove the tyres and sell the wheels on. I can do some pics if you like? As you have discovered, they do crack, so the rears have been professionally repaired on the inner edges when they were refurbished. Where are you located, just in case you wanted to have a look?
