  1. Ride was definitely firmer, but not too bad. Still very comfortable. That was with new OE-spec dampers. I suspect the IS300-specific Pro-Kit probably has slightly higher rated front springs because of the bigger 2JZ engine. You might need to import some from the USA.
  2. Was a sporty variant of IS250 that was sold circa 2008. It came with a bodykit, which your car appears to have. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  3. @lex28 I think. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  4. The bottom row has the exterior colour & interior details. 6N9 is your paint code. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  5. I believe his old car was involved in an accident recently and most likely written-off. [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. Yes, they'll fit no problem. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  7. It sounds like you've already bought your tyres, Vlad, but I think Lexus will offer to price-match any local garages for prices? It's mentioned on lexus.co.uk and also in promotional material that's usually bundled in with the paperwork after my car's been serviced. T&C's apply, and I don't know what they are, but it appears to be a wide-ranging policy, not just dealer-specific. Personally, I always order from blackcircles and have the tyres delivered to, and fitted by a local garage that's recently been refurbished and has all new and modern equipment. Way less hassle than visiting the dealer that's located in a congestion bottleneck. 🙂
  8. IIRC, It's about 2mpg according to the official figures. Enough to put a 2011 car into a lower tax bracket. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. According to the handbook, 0w20 is the recommended grade for a MY2011 car, and that's what it leaves the factory with. 5w30 is listed as an acceptable, but apparently temporary, substitute. Strangely, my Lexus dealer (Edinburgh) uses neither during servicing. They always fill with Castrol 0w30.
  10. Welcome. [emoji2] Nice looking car. Is it an SR? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. That's an American thing. An alarm sensor is in there on UK cars. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. I believe the 027 battery is more or less the same, but has the terminals at the "front" side. Rotating it is a no-go as that'll leave the - & + the wrong way round. I think it can fit, but the cables have to be stretched to reach, if they can actually reach far enough. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  13. Yes. That's my own car in the picture. [emoji2] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  14. 026 is the one you want. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. Very nice. I think if/when I get a mk3 it'll probably be black. [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
