  1. Agreed. It's been on most of the loaners I've had whilst my car has been at the dealership and I find it obtrusive. It reduces your speed way too early for my liking.
  2. Yes, the facelift RC brakes are the same as the 4th-gen GS F-Sport. Like the IS250/300h->IS350 conversion featured in this topic, it's a bolt-on upgrade too. 🙂 The friction surface (disc), and the bell part that bolts to the car are 2 seperate pieces. Usually to save weight.
  3. 😄 Same thing happens in my IS250. I sh*t myself and thought I had a catastrophic engine or gearbox failure the first time it happened.
  4. Plenty of options for 1st and 2nd-gen IS over the years, but hardly any for 3rd-gen. Apparently, to swap the rear bar on an XE30 it's a huge undertaking, with the entire subframe having to be dropped/removed for access. That would explain the lack of support from the aftermarket world. A company called Hardrace do make them though. Front ARB Rear ARB
  5. I noticed recently that all of Shell's pumps are now clearly stating how much "non-fuel" is in their products.
  6. Check whether your local TOYOTA garage has a Hunter 4-wheel alignment machine. Mine does, and they charge £39 for a check.
  7. Denso Same dilemma. Bought a set, with the intention of changing them, but car is running perfect (and not quite yet at 60K anyway), so I'll leave them for now.
  8. Should be easy enough to swap yourself if you can source a replacement. Give www.lexuspartsdirect.co.uk a try. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. Great write-up and pictures. [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Should be a couple of bolts deep in the area where you removed the heated seats/ TRC panel. There's another 2 bolts at the top of the stereo unit. To get at them, you need to remove the top part of the dash with the central air vents. On a car without navigation you literally just grab the top of the dash and pull it off, but it might be different on a car that has the nav screen there. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. Japan and Europe are both DVD Region 2. Their TV system standard, however, is NTSC (60Hz), not PAL.(50Hz). Maybe that's the issue.
  12. My pick would be OSRAM Nightbreaker, or Cool Blue Intense. For the fogs.... I bought these for my previous IS250, but never got around to fitting them. They're no good to me now as 2011 cars have a different bulb type. You can have them if you can paypal a few quid to cover P&P.
  13. You're exceeding the recommended spec, so it'll be fine. It seems nobody besides Bridgestone offer tyres with a 90 load rating anyway.
