    My IS250 F-Sport

    Yeah, I did. If left parked up for a weekend or so, the car would struggle to start. The battery eventually died in August so I had to buy a new one. I just disconnect the camera now when I leave the car parked up for a while. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    My IS250 F-Sport

    Its the A119S I have, but not a V2. It's been in my car and working fine for over a year now. A couple of things to mention. The reliability issues you've heard about might be down to the type of SD card being used as I had some bother with a SanDisk one. After swapping it for a Samsung card though, problem solved. Another thing is that the optional GPS module doesn't fit very snugly which can make captured footage shaky. You can solve the problem by packing something between the two surfaces to ensure it doesn't move. I use a small zip tie. I believe the V2 version of the camera fixes the problem as it has a redesigned GPS mount. So, go for that one (if you want GPS functionality). Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    No problem. The flasher relay is up underneath the dashboard, on the driver's side above the pedals. Its not too far from the fusebox. It can be a bit awkward to get to, but removing the lower dashboard panel where the OBDII port is, makes things much easier. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Car looks like a very nice example, Mike. [emoji106] Silver wasn't my first choice either, but its really grown on me. It looks fantastic at night, or on a bright sunny day. Regarding LED indicators...Yes its possible as I've done this to my car (plus the reversing lights), but haven't updated my build thread yet since the job isn't 100% done yet. I still need to find the time/weather/courage to remove the front bumper so I can swap out the front bulbs, but the rears are done and look great. I used these Osram W16W bulbs, plus I had to swap the flasher relay to prevent the indicators from hyper-flashing due to the LEDs drawing less power. The relay is only a few quid on Amazon. Anyway, great start to your build thread. I shall be looking forward to future updates. [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  7. I also run the Pirelli Sottozero 3 as my winter set and find them to be very good, even in the significant amount of snow we got back in March. I typically have them on the car between Nov/Dec through to March/April and their performance in low-temp, damp slippy conditions is such that I barely need to alter my driving style. Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 is another tyre I can recommend. I had these when I had an IS200 and they were similarly good.
  8. You need a 21mm socket to remove them, if that's what you mean. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Front pads

    It is, PAYDAY50. £21 for Pagid or Brembo. Eicher are even cheaper but I've no idea what those are like...

    LOC Golden Membership issue

    You should be able to get 10% off at Lexus Glasgow. Either the staff are ignorant or they're trying to wriggle out of applying your discount because they've been in the scheme for years. I've not dealt with them myself as I'm on the other side of the country, but the same parent company also owns and runs Lexus Edinburgh, who are well aware of the LOC Gold Membership scheme and will happily apply the discount when you present the card. Vlad, If you go into the dealer discounts section in the Gold Membership area, there's a phone number and email address for the relevant person to contact at Glasgow. I'd complain to that person and ask for the discount to be applied retroactively, if you've already paid them any money. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. Yes, that's correct, hence the term "low profile". Journalists commonly use the term "section" to describe a tyre's width.

  13. Does your car have navigation? The owner's manual just deals with cars that don't have it equipped. There's a separate handbook for the navigation unit.
  14. Yes I think so. The car selects the "to feet" setting when the interior is colder than the desired set temperature. This is the quickest way to heat up the interior since warm air always rises.

    DIY Disc Change on 2009 GS450h

    No sliding pins to worry about as they are monoblock calipers. You should be able to reuse the guide pins, clips, shims etc if they're undamaged. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
