  1. Just over 56K on mine. Wanted to get a pic of the 55555 milestone when it happened, but was driving at the time. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  2. A few hours? 😜 I changed mine last year and it took maybe an hour in total from start to finish, including giving the air filter and MAF a clean whilst the engine covers were off. I also went with Osram bulbs. Cool Blue Intense though, not Nightbreakers. Was about £90 for both packs.
  3. This is what mine looked like inside. The flap has the motion sensor on the underside and it was pretty difficult to prize open. Presumably, the one that does have the sunglasses compartment, has some kind of latch or clip so it can be opened easily without needing tools. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  4. Lexus IS250 2009 front interior roof lamp light, sunroof switches 1D153-017G
  5. The 2 for 1 warranty offer has been around for forever. An invitation to purchase is always part of the bumpf/paperwork whenever I've collected my car again after any visits to the dealer. Good luck with the purchase [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. Pay extra attention to the condition of the sills of any potential cars. The rest of the body seems quite resilient against rust, but the area in front of the rear wheels is very prone to bubbling and eventually rotting. Most MkI cars I see nowadays either have some corrosion there, or have been cheaply repaired with an unsightly steel plate to get through an MOT as fixing it properly can be quite expensive. I believe the sunroof and poor drainage is the cause, and most ISs come with a sunroof as standard. My own car succumbed to this when I had an IS200, despite otherwise being in excellent condition, so it's something I always look out for whenever I see a 1st-gen car out and about.

  7. Rare colour. Looks epic at this time of year, when the sun is (mostly) out. 👍
  8. A more sensible/easier swap would be the 3.5 2GR engine. More powerful than the V8 to boot Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. Nothing noticeable. An IS250 doesn't have enough power/torque to "need" 255s. Arguably, fuel economy should be slightly better since wider tyres equals more drag. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. You can get non-runflats. https://www.blackcircles.com/catalogue/goodyear/eagle-f1-asymmetric-3/245/40/R18/Y/97/f?tyre=34510578 £113 each fitted
  11. Get the Asymmetric 3's, but in 245/40-18 instead. I run this size and there's barely any difference, performance-wise, but the tyre choice is much, much bigger (and way cheaper). I put 4x Michelin PS4 on my car a year ago for under £450, which is almost what just the rears would cost if sticking to OEM size.
  12. There's a pair of brake shoes inside the rear discs that work very much like a conventional drum brake. That's the setup for the parking brake. You could first try and see if they can be adjusted by removing the grommet and turning the cog adjuster with a screwdriver. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  13. Sounds like your navigation system is the later type which is hard disk-based, not DVD. Unless there's a third-party / bootleg method I'm unaware of, it has to be updated via USB by a Lexus dealership, which costs £££...
