  1. I never had any issues with non genuine pads. Always uses EBC ones.
  2. The radio code is an optional thing. If it flashes up “SEC” when you’d switch on, then a code has been set, if not, there hasn’t been one set. They are mk1 sport wheels that came on it (albeit without the wider rears), so a relatively rare wheel. I’d stick with those and get them refurbed if it was me. If you decide to sell, mention “Supra” in your advert title, the Supra clan love them, so you’d increase the market you are selling to, and with any luck, get a bit more for them 🙂
  3. Yup, the IS200 does have a DMF. Changing it would depend if it is faulty, do you have any symptoms? Bad judder would tend to suggest an issue with it.
  4. The DBPower one I’ve got has been excellent in the 3.5 years I’ve had it.
  5. Yeah, they were UK only, and not even how Lexus shipped them over. Changes were done in the dealership once they landed. There were some bits they saved for the JDM market though, like power fold mirrors. I did buy a second hand set to retrofit to mine, but never got round to it in the end. They were amongst the parts that all got sold on after the car had gone.
  6. Nice GS. As you say, they are a rare sight these days. I still preferred my gen1 GS300 Sport from a looks perspective over both my Gen 2 GS300 Sport and GS430 Sport. Although for a gen1, the Borbet staggered sport wheels absolutely made the look of the car (have to be the 10” rears). I don’t think I could have a gen1 without them. Whoever it was at lexus that chose those wheels, deserved to be on the new year honours list at the time, they were prefect.
  7. Are they the MK1 sport wheels, or a different rim?
  8. Any picture ms of what they look like? I’ve got some gen2 LED rear clusters (and matching fogs), but they may be completely different.
  9. The TV program was not using second hand gear from donor vehicles. There is a mass of very funky after market kit available. I’m not saying it is cheap specifically, but in the 10’s of thousands, nothing even close to hundred’s of thousands. Clearly the £900 claim is purely based on someone bagging a write off at a bargain price, and getting all the gear (and probably from a mate, of a mate, of a mate, of a garage owner) Of course if that suddenly became a trend, there would be no bargain EV write-offs anymore.... lol. With places like eBay nowadays, even scrap yards are not as cheap as the used to be for anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. There is a TV show on Quest where they do electric conversions an all sorts of old cars, it’s quite interesting. It’s not butchering an existing car to do it though, it is genuine after market tech, designed for the purpose of retro fit. In fact, wheeler dealers did it years ago with a Maserati. I keep mulling it over for my Corrado, as it does very low miles, and short distances, and would be quite cool I think. Prices will continue to plummet for the after market stuff as well, given the advancements in recent times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. There’s a fair amount of info in this topic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. There should be like an insert bar halfway inside (to basically form two circular cut-outs), not just a rectangular hole. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I’d clear the codes and see, nothing lost if they do come back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Shame about the mk1, same colour as my old mk1 Sport. Not many about any more, and not seen one that colour for sale for many years Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I can only assume that list is not all that in-depth. According to the years, they are only showing one MK1 in red. It was a bit of a lottery on the registration document for the mk1 Sports, as there was technically no such thing, them being “modified” by the dealers once on uk soil. I think it just depended what the dealer put on when they registered them, so many only had GS300 on the document. Mine was a red one, and do get quite tempted by a mk1 even now. I’ve still got a set of MK1 sport wheels in the garage, with the 10” rears, so I could take a non-sport and lower it with my own set of wheels if temptation got the better of me.

  16. I’d check the anti roll bar bushes, and drop links. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  17. What were the codes shown for the EML being on Ian? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  18. PDF is now on the link below. Cheers Rick
  19. Yeah, that domain name is dead now. I’ll redo a link to my current domain tomorrow if that works for you. I need to do the same with all my tutorials, as the photos don’t work anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  20. That’s what I would’ve thought too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  21. There is a lot of theorising in the comments to be fair. Unless that add said “original tyres” why would you assume it has them. Someone who does that few miles per year is unlikely to brim the tank 4 times a year, more likely a tenners worth every couple of weeks. Perished pipes would be picked up on services. Has it been serviced, has it not. Cars of 30/40 years ago had many more time related issues than modern cars, materials have come a long way. I theorise as well, but the point is, you will only know the “actual” answers to any of these bad points if you’ve actually been to see it, and asked all the questions. I wouldn’t pay a premium for low miles, but I wouldn’t count one out just because of what “could” be wrong with it. Same as I wouldn’t count out high miles, 100k was considered shot 30 years ago, it’s just run in nowadays. For context, I have a 1994 Corrado VR6, which I on average do 250-500 miles per year in. I’ve owned it for 8.5 years, and have changed perished tyres if needed, never had any fuel go off, not had any rubber or seal issues, etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
