  1. I hit a crash barrier doing 70mpg in the wet last year and did hardly any damage compared to that!! thats more like a 50-60 head on not 30!! I was completly honest with my insurance and they wrote the car off, my premium went up £180 which i lived with.... This year with it supercharged, 6 points, a write off, 1yrs NCB, and a value of £7k fully comp is £3700 PFFFTTT no chance. Just ordered a new BMW 120D Msport in white gonna cost me £25k car for the car wen built in october and cost £1800 to insure!! with Virgin Money!! Just be honest and they shudnt be too hard on you! plus shop around! Tom.

  5. Yes mate, after you remover the 3 screws (that in ur case snapped) and the main centre one the plastic cover can be removed and the clutch plate inside can be removed aswell. then i wud just put this in a vice and drill the screqs out, re tap them in M4 and ur finished. Tom.
  6. Thats how you put the swirl marks in lol Tom.
  7. update so far is i dont have the cash at the mo to have it fixed but will be giving it to the guys at Bennet Racing to look at as there not too far fromme! has roughly quoted me £250-300 for the work +£££ for bearings/ anything else i want doing! should have it there at the end of the month! Tom.
  8. all i have to say on the matter is.............. WAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA lol like being at school again!! i cant believe how the forum has changed from being friendly and informative to being soo uptight and argumentative!! like watching the house of commons!! bunch of children sometimes!!! just my opinion..... no doubt something will happen but hey ho!! Tom.
  9. With 3 years no claims i was at £1270 ish standard and £1630 with S/C, Induction kit, Intercooler, Scilicon hoses, Dump valve, De-Cat manifold, Rear box, and soundsystem declared! God knows what it will be in July as i now have a£9k accident/ write off, and 6 points :( :( :( Tom.
  10. Shudnt be too hard i guess.... i just took mine apart and wasnt too difficult! Just need a vice or something to clamp it with while you drill... Tom.
  11. Just look for Intercooler King on e-Bay and look for one with the rough dimenstions as Wozza's Tom.
  12. Dont see how it does??? im still an owner of a lexus? Still update people on my car like others do in the way of when i clean it, modify it, ect..? Still need/ ask for help with my car the way others do when a commomn fault or otherwise arises?? Offer my advise or help other people best i can with there problems or learn from it and apply it to my car if it ever happens to me!! Dont get me wrong i love my car to bits, but after crashing and riting my last one off its just not the most important thing..... when i say i dont care about it i mean in the way im not one of these people who has a cry/ nervous breakdown over a scratch, dent or tiny bump! Its just a piece of metal at the end of the day and a bit of fun...... if anything brakes i'll fix or replace it! As it happens on my way home last night the dif decided to give up on me! nothng i can do, no point gettin upset about it and with it under warranty it means Lexus are replacing it and taking on the £1600 for a new diff and the labour charges! So dont bother me just means i dont have a car till next wednesday?? Tom.
  13. The reason it faild was it was running stupidly hot and the car was at a stand still..... not sure on the mileage.... but i do abuse my car as i dont care that much about it tbh lol Tom
