  1. Lexus RX300 SE 2004 119k Miles - £2350 ono For Sale is my Lexus RX300. It is finished in Platinum Silver paintwork and Cream Leather interior, with black leather dash, door caps and steering wheel. The car is in good condition and has recently (December) had two new front tyres fitted, front brake discs and pads all around and brake covers in the last 12 months. The car has very good MOT history and its current MOT runs until March 2021. Additional Information: Mileage – 119100 Full Service History Owners Manual and Holder SE Specification 6 CD Player MOT until March 2021 Rear load cover Rear boot floor rubber cover (covers complete carpeted area) Lexus carpet mats and rubber mats for the interior New front and rear wiper blades Sunroof Other information: This car is in good condition. Mechanically the car is strong as can be seen from its MOT history, with recent advisories being addressed. The exterior is in good condition, there are some small scratches and marks, but generally the car is very presentable. The leather interior is also in very good condition, with all electrics functioning well. This car has been fantastic; I bought it for the winter period as I took my other car off the road. It is great to drive, very reliable and extremely comfortable. It is my second RX300 having owned one for a few years in the past. Please feel free to contact me to arrange a viewing / test drive on 07976976160 or send me a pm. £2350ono
  2. Thanks. It’s up for sale so my RX300 will stay with me at least until the new one arrives
  3. Haha! Better than that, it’s the 5.5 biturbo.
  4. I bought a 2004 RX300 in November. Have to say it’s been great. You can check the MOT history on line as will give a guide to any potential issues that may / may not need addressing. I last owned an RX between 2007-10 and the only difference bar inevitable ageing, are a couple of squeaks in the interior (can be fixed). The car still looks great, drives well and even the kids give it their seal of approval despite our other car being a 900bhp Mercedes! Hope it works our well.
  5. I used the same person on EBay and had x2 keys sent. All done in 48 hours so these key I use daily now has a solid casing. I just sent him a pic of my key so he cut send the correct one. Jules
  6. Put x2 new Avon’s on my RX300 in Nov after identifying the previous tyres needed replacing when buying the car. Been great so far. When I had my first RX300 back in 2008 I think I fitted General Grabber tyres, which to be honest were fine also.
  7. Anybody get any creaking from the dash cluster? Mine creaks if on anything other than smooth roads, but if I squeeze together the top centre of the cluster cover and dashboard it stops.
  8. I think it will become clearer once you post a pic of the Dyno graph. If your peak torque figure is correct (or close to what Lexus states) and it peaks at the correct rpm, then theoretically the HP should be also close to the Lexus claim. Either the Dyno isn’t set up correctly, or the car has a slight restriction at the top end (could be fueling related - does the graph show the AFR trace?). Another factor could be how the car is set up to run on the dynamometer, for example does the car have a “Dyno mode” similar to AMG Merc cars, that it should be put in to run on the Dyno? i agree with your logic though of getting another similar engined car on the Dyno to compare.
  9. It’s various suspension bushes, joints, pins, front discs etc so worth checking. I’d do it before purchase as there may be reference in the service history to show the work has been done. I suspect it has as the most recent MOT shows no advisories, but I’d want to be sure.
