  1. Hi folks The covers for the security wheel nuts on my 2007 IS250 have disappeared over the years. I would like to replace them in order to keep up the car's appearance. Any suggestions as to where I can find some?
  2. Many thanks for the replies and advice.
  3. Hi folks Is it a good idea to get one of these engine code scanners for use in the event that the engine light comes on. I have not had this happen yet but am a bit concerned about it happening. I have a 2007 IS250 auto which has done about 50k miles and zero mechanical knowledge. All advice and comments gratefully received
  4. Thank you all very much for your help and suggestions. Brechin, I did try the eBay details you so kindly sent but only the spray is available now. I forgot to mention that I just want brush/stick Thanks again to all
  5. Hello again I need some touch up paint for a 2007 IS250. Colour is Brechin Slate 8R6. Where can I find this animal please? I Have checked Amazon/eBay without success.
  6. Thanks very much. Is this stuff suitable for external use? It's actually the exterior window surrounds that are a bit ropey.
  7. Hi folks The black rubber window surrounds on my IS250 are ratty with age and I want to restore them. Can anybody recommend a suitable paint etc that can be brush applied? Also my wiper arms are in need of some restoration. Again anyone have any advice please. Please bear in mind that I have the DIY skills and technical knowledge of a hamster.
  8. Hello It was not a Lexus dealer. It was an independent from which I bought the car ( 2007 48k miles) last November. There is a Lexus dealership here but you know what they charge.
  9. Thank you all for your advice. The problem seems to have been solved by my dealer inserting a length of foam rubber centrally between the dash and the windscreen. Pretty basic but has done the job at no cost so I ma happy with my silent 250
  10. Hi folks I have a 2007 IS25o with 49k miles and an annoying intermittent rattle that seems to be coming from the mid upper section of the dash. AS long as the road surface is good there is no problem but when things are less than perfect then the rattle starts. I previously had an IS200 which was silent and solid so am disappointed to encounter this. I am hoping that someone can come up with some sort of solution other than leaving it with the supplier (non Lexus) while the dash is removed, examined and replaced over a protracted period of time with substantial cost. HELP !
  11. Thanks for all advice. I forgot to mention that I only bought the car 3 months ago and not from a Lexus dealer. The guarantee I have been offered is not therefore underwritten by Lexus but some other company that deals in these things.
  12. Hi all I bought my 2007 Is 250 a few months ago and it came with a 3 month guarantee from the dealer with an option to buy a further 12 month warranty when the 3 month one expires (25/2/17.) Cost is £193 Car has done 49k,I only do about 5k a year and car has good service history so is it worth buying a further guarantee? I appreciate these are limited and not like a guarantee you would get with a new vehicle. All comments and thought would be gratefully receive as always

    Thanks to Normski for steering me to the right area. Have put it in my favourites so hopefully no more confusion.
