    Disk/pad Upgrade Or Just Stick Oem?

    I had my SC serviced last week and was told that front brakes needed changing. Like you they also said something about 99% worn and so discs and pads need doing. They quoted £435 but I said I would shop around. Tried another Lexus dealer who is doing it for £290 (including LOC discount). It pays to shop around. Plus I do a lot of travelling so can usually get quotes from a wide range of dealers. I did think about going down the route of buying parts off eBay and getting a mechanic to fit - but I'm a total novice to mechanics and would probably get the wrong kind. Plus I like the piece of mind of using a dealer.

    Folding Mirror Fault

    I hate to say this but last year I had the same problem with the mirrors on my 2003 SC and in the end the dealer offered to replace them (the car was under a years warranty). Funnily enough one went and then about a month later the other went. Replacement is expensive but if you are on a budget then I suggest strip down and clean first.
