  1. Take a look through here. Should help you. I did get my sensors from USA though.
  2. Yep it's what I use all the time. This may help for other bits n bobs
  3. Nice one Ahmed I imagine there will be quite a few interested in this. Particularly now that Ashpoint does not appear to be offering the kit any more. Look forward to your write up. It may encourage me to try and do this on my son's Nissan X Trail. Nice to see you back here again. Your mod's are of great interest and always show excellent craft and attention to detail.
  4. Do you have both keys and are they the originals? From a quick Google search:- B2799 is a fault that appears when the engine immobilizer doesn't read the transponder key. This means the key used is not programmed or the key has lost the code in it thus not being recognized by the system(Most time these are keys that are cut after loss of the original key)
  5. Or it could have been the SE i variant that you drove. Most garages, from what I have observed, seem to wrongly (or the cynic in me thinks it might be deliberate) label the SE i as a SEL in their sales descriptions.
  6. Here is Newbie's guide I've updated the link in the 'How To' section as well, as that had gone awry.
  7. Yep, memory seat buttons are on the door card. A pic from a post of mine last year regarding door card removal
  8. You sure about that? Mine is 2010 facelift SEL and has memory seats. Crucially too, it has a USB port in the armrest ... not just a phono jack as on pre facelift vehicles. Also, on the facelift version you get a HDD if you have sat nav ... and can store lots of music as mp3 files in the HDD (Hard Disk Drive)
  9. If Lexus have ever done any work regarding the creaking dash problem there will be packers visible when the windscreen is removed. Make sure the fitter knows to leave them be.... do not remove. I think it is normal that a new gel pad should be fitted where the wiper sensor attaches to the windscreen. Check the auto wiper function after with a jug of water dribbled over the sensor.
  10. I have the Osram Cool Blue d4s in mine. Fitted them about 2-3 years back and jolly good they were too. I kept the old ones in my spares box that goes in the boot on continental trips. Oh .... and they’re still going strong.
  11. Sounds to me like someone at the dealership is a bit out of kilter!! Assuming you have HDD system, you should have, as its a 2010 model. You get updated via a usb drive. That can only be done at the dealership...find another!! The port is behind the dash cover. Takes about an hour, and last time I did it .... it was £160. Doubt very much the data would be updated every 6 months...that's bonkers. Map data does not change that much so go for it every 4-5 years or so. If it's got a DVD drive then you can do that yourself with a newer DVD from the likes of Ebay.
  12. Yup ... it's loaded via USB stick. It should update the Gracenote files for your music on HDD as well.
  13. Last time I had mine done it was £160. I would not do it every year as the updates an be negligible. I’m going with 4-5 year periods.
