  1. Is this normal?

    It’s the wires going into the black fuse box on the left, any IS200T owners can confirm with a photo. Thanks
  2. Was doing the engine oil level check on the IS and spotted something unusual. The bunch of cables going into the fuse box next to the battery isn’t protected by any conduit but wrapped in electrical tape only, this doesn’t seem right to me. can someone confirm wether this is normal?
  3. Have the same dialema with my 2011 ISF. Car is due it’s annual service on 1st March, having only covered around 2k miles and currently stored away during winter, I’m thinking of stretch the interval a couple of months and have it serviced in May with Lexus when the car is back out. Altough I said to myself I’ll never sell her but you never know, would you be put off by the car because it’s not serviced at 12months interval as it’s been stored away?
  4. This happened!!

    Looks an excellent job! Dropped mine off at the RRG bodyshop in Bolton on Monday for repairs, should be done next week. From the top photo it looks like it can be removed by a dent removal man? what alloy wheels is on the car in the first pic?
  5. This happened!!

    Good to hear they're up to standards Rayaans, I went direct to them rather than through Lexus Bolton, do you know if I can still request a Lexus loaner.
  6. This happened!!

    Thanks all for the advice, looks like I may go down the insurance route and have Rrg accident repairs to carry out the work because the age of my car and are Lexus approved, atleast I have some sort of comeback if I'm not happy with the job. estimate came back at £2.5k.
  7. Wife scraped the side of the IS on a low wall last night, only 7months old!! Just been to the rrg body shop in Bolton for them to have a look, needs new rear door, and skirts, front door can be repaired, not looking forward to the quotes they'll be emailing me. Reading this article, apparently the Azure Blue is a very tricky paint to match? Anyone had paint done in this colour and how do you find the finish and match? Will also be going to a local highly recommended bodyshop for them to have a look.
  8. Ctek 5.0 arrived thanks Amazon for the lightning delivery! Just not sure what charge mode to use on a perfectly healthy battery AGM or Recon?
  9. Ctek MXS 5.0 ordered and will arrive tomorrow evening, thanks!
  10. Hi Guys Looking for a trickle charger to keep the ISF battery in top condition, interested in the CTEK MXS 5.0 but just isn't sure if it's man enough for the job, any recommendations.
  11. @BUG4LIFE good to see an ex integra type r owners here, was it a DC5 you owned?
  12. NEW ISF!!

    Just checked the photos again on my PC, my bad it's the right way round.
  13. NEW ISF!!

    Nice colour combo, but both the front and rear alloys need swapping around.
  14. Airbag recall

    Sounds reassuring, not too fussed about the supermarket fuel they put in. Will still wait till the next service to get it done.
  15. Airbag recall

    Guys that had the recall done, any ideas what interior panels are required to be removed in order for this to be done? passenger seat, parts of the dash board? I've yet to get in touch with the dealer even tho letter are received few weeks ago for the fear of damages as my whole interior is absolutely unmarked!
