  1. right, thanks for he reply. I meant some years ago maybe 5 or more, I am reasonably sure they did, as I had a copy of it, and did my old IS with it in my local. Steve, do you have any achieves of the old forum? could anyone help?
  2. Hello PPL Tony from wheels in motion re-wrote the Geometry positions for the Lexus some years ago dissolving the habitual inner front tyre wear problem and he kindly punished it here. could anyone post a link please, I need it to set up mine tomorrow, I got inner wear problems. many thanks Felix
  3. Hi, My is done 74060 yesterday. Yes you are right. I will not lose any sleep over the tensioner, idler or the water pump. Will fix it when they are broken. The only reason I do the timing belt is it will be "behind economical repaired" if it went. I wish there is a easier way to inspect the timing belt. How about make the cover transparent? he he Felix
  4. Good Question. There is a very wide accepted practice that you do the tensioner and the idler and water pump at the same time. I don't buy that. "In 25 years of working for TOYOTA, I never replaced one because of it's broke, water pump yes, there is no need if it is not leaking" - the TOYOTA specialist said. I am happy to pay £150 for the job. and keeping eyes on it every service or every 10K. Felix
  5. Just want to share the cheapest timing belt change £O.E. timing belt £18.01 Lab: £130 inc VAT and O.E coolant. (TOYOTA specialist) this is what he took out from my car. He he ..... Very Lucky Felix..........
  6. So glad to see a few familiar names. Yes people do move on after a while, I noticed a interesting trend (tendency if you like) which is a few of old members here bought a Discovery or other kind of 4X4 after a while. Correct me if I am wrong.
  7. Sorry for being off the topic, I quite like the idea of Carbon wrapped bonnet, anyone has any pics PLEASE any idea the cost? and if any recommendations in midlands area? thanks Felix
  8. all really depends that you are keeping the car for a while or just yearly change. and also don't forget you are much GREENER. It's your call. Felix
  9. it seems that it does have an issue with the ipad. same here, no issue with my Mac book or Iphone which both has safari browser. someone help!
  10. I 100% agree with Andy and Jay_russell's. don't even try to do it any other way which will be waste of your time and $$.. Good Luck Felix
  11. bump in to a 4X4 last week. Any one have a spare driver-side rear light for a 03 IS200? PM me Many thanks Felix P.S. sorry couldn't "start new topic" in buy and sell section.
  12. why not, I can't see the reason. don't try to find a cheap place to do that is the advice. 1600 - 1800 would be reasonable. Good luck. Felix P.S. Make sure you find someone has done a few of these and insists a flash lube kit is needed. O sharp tank is waste of time, get a big one behind the seats.
  13. agree with above. the gauge will reset every 150 miles itself. it happens on our old RX300 and my IS too. you will get use to it after a few tanks Felix
  14. 1st thing to check is if your tyres are balanced. 2nd thing is trying to find where the vibration came from, eg, front or back or engine bay 3rd thing to check is if the "shaking" only happens on a specific speed band, such as your said 65-75, how about over 75? (you may have to go to a private road to test that ) Good luck I am sure you will have people to help you out when you have more details reported back to here. Felix
