  1. Alas its not in the cupboard. I have emailed every breaker on Ebay and app have says the cover has gone 😥
  2. Me again, anybody know where I can get a parcel shelf for 2nd gen RX. they are like rocking horse turds and expensive!
  3. me again in my glove box I have a cable that has three ends. aux, old iPhone and usb. anyone know how I get anything to play through these? there doesn't seem to be an option for external input. also under my seat by the dvd player there is an fm transmitter plugged into it so I can play the dvd through the radio. bonus
  4. Hi all, what are the air suspension levels meant to be used for? when should somebody be in low or high. I feel I should be in low all the time as only drive normal roads?
  5. hi all, my 05 rx300 has bluetooth and works but when I press phone book and ADD, it just says send your phonebook from your phone. how is this done?
  6. thanks mate. quick one about the sat nav screen. is there a screen saver setting? I don't want to look at maps or trip info all the time but also don't want black screen. a clock or Lexus symbol would be perfect
  7. thanks mate, what is the aux connection for in drivers seat? wired headphones? I doubt the car will come with wireless ones, are they easy to pick up?
  8. ok guys so in the morning I'm off to collect as 2005 rx300 se-l ice wood nav thing. 104k full lex service history, mint condition and warranty, never failed an mot. all for 2800 which I personally think is a bargain. what you think? couple of questions though, it's the SE-L with sir suspension. do these always go wrong or only a few? is there a way to turn it off and just run it at normal height? I don't need it to move. it has rear screens in the head tests. how do these work? where is the input and how do you hear it? are these cars hands free? I heard they ate non interference engines so if belt snaps there's no damage? anything else I should be aware of?
  9. Hi all, sho looks like im back again. something always keeps pulling me back to the lexus. So I've just wrote off my Mazda 6 and need a replacement asap. My family has grown and we like camping so im looking for an SUV. Unfortunately my budget is maximum 3.5k. it looks like I can get a 04/05 RX300 with around 100k on for this price. car looks smart and tidy, lots of gadgets but generally is this a safe buy? 16 year old motor with 100k on I'd usually laugh at but these seem to be built to last. and advise welcome.
  10. Well im sorry to say, you've put me off, gutted! the 250 is just too thirsty for my miles. I brought a MAzda 6 2.2 instead and so far after 300 miles im averaging at 55mpg. In terms of sat navs, i do agree phones are better, i just like the aesthetics of a built in one. My old vauxhall vectra had a awful looking sat nav in it, no post code entry so was bit crap on A roads but the traffic alerts were better than most phone apps ive tried. Each to their own i guess.
  11. Well you have definitely give me something to think about. I do about 500 miles a week and nearly all motorway and i drive quick so hopefully lots of issues i wont see. Am i right in thinking 90k on a IS200d should be ok with full service history? If its got that far surely its ok?
  12. Thank you for your advice, ill leave the Satnav. Yes ive researched and im aware of the problems, specifically the head gasket that worries me. I do a lot of miles though so was worried the 250 would kill me in fuel. Regarding the 220, they dont all pop do they? Is it a case of when not if?
  13. Hi All, Im rejoining the clan after a few years away. Looking at a IS220 2008ish. Question is 1) do the standard readio head units have bluetooth in as ive seen one that says Phone on the display and 2) is it possible to swap out the old headunit for the satnav version?
  14. Recently i was interested in a Nissan Murano and ive been to see a few, firstly i gotta say, amazing car and amazing spec for price, but 2 main things put me off, 1) lacks the prestige of the Lex badge and 2) 3.5 thirsty petrol guzzler! Anyway, whilst doing a comparison between the RX and the Murano, it says the RX turning circle is 6m and the Murano is 12m. Is that right? the Murano would be double?? If people are struggling to park an RX how on earth will they park a murano?
  15. Hi All, Finally going to view an RX on Saturday, what you think, is the below a good deal or should i hold out for better?
  16. Ok im getting confused and need help. I have 10k give or take. I originally wanted a hybrid, no particular reason, i just liked the idea but ive noticed i can get newer and lower miles if i stick to petrol. Either way i want a SE-L model. What are the main differences (apart from running costs) that separate the petrol over the hybrid. Which do you prefer Ultimately which is better?
  17. Evening all! Well its been a long time but im back, ive had 3 IS200's in the past and have always been in love with lexus and the LOC. I currently have around 10k to spend and i want a nice RX400h SE-L. Would everyone say this is the best option? I dont really want sky high tax and fuel costs. Also and this isnt important, back in the day i used to love messing around with the IS200, putting my own stamp on it so to speak, there were literally hundreds of tiny mods that could be done, all of which i found on here. Is the RX similar or is what you buy about the best its gonna get?
  18. just checked the site and it says now lexus from 99 onwards?
  19. heres a link to the thread on here for it
  20. i have one for sale at the moment, literally listed on ebay 30 mins ago, according to grom, all issues with the older models have been fixed
  21. my factory stereo im my is200 plays mp3. the trick though is to burn them at the slowest possible speed, if i burn at x4 or above they dont play. x2 always works
