  1. That was a very helpful guide, thank you very much :) I think I may have to attempt this on my GS soon. It too has had a spell of damp carpet along with condensation on the left windows. It does however have the approved pre-owned 3-year warranty on it, so I'm going to attempt my luck and see how much it'll cost to do it via the "official" route at Lexus 1st. Cavanman01, what was the size of your barb and how much prodding and force did it take to rip the grommet?
  2. Agreed, the ventilated seats were especially awesome in yesterday's weather :)
  3. This thread may be helpful regarding the different trim levels of the 3rd-gen GS: http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/91640-differences-in-se-l-spec-before-and-after-2008-for-gs450h/
  4. Wow that does look good! Come on Lexus, how about the next LS!? :D
  5. Mine went in on Friday for the recall, along with the 80,000 mile full service. Apparently the fuel pipe recall is a 4-hour job, and involves removing the inlet manifold and injectors. I was also told that there was a slight trace of dried pink coolant around the water pump. How many miles has your car done?
  6. Happy Birthday LexIS200Sport!

  7. Another fan of the Gen3 Glasscoat here; this is really good stuff. But speaking from experience, if you are considering on getting it applied to anything other than a brand new car, please go to an independent detailer and not a Lexus dealer. I find that Lexus dealers don't do a good job in removing swirl marks prior to applying the Glasscoat. Not all independent detailers are able to apply Glasscoat though, only those who have been certified to. Google is your friend :)
  8. Oh wow, looking good! Same colour as mine :) Welcome to the club and enjoy your car!
  9. Just about 4 years. Got onboard with an IS200 Sport (still remember the excitement of buying my first premium car :) ) Now rolling around in a GS.
  10. All said and done, I'm still baffled as to why the RC-F is so heavy!? A smaller 2-door coupe that weighs as much as my battery-laden GS?? I mean Nissan managed to pack AWD into the GT-R and it still weighs less!
  11. Firstly, why does it matter? Drive the car that suites your needs and makes you happy :) I'm 31 and drive a GS450h SE-L (equivalent to the "Premier" back in the day). I bought it because it's quick, unconventional, and looks good. On the other hand, my dad is 61 and he's awaiting delivery of a 370Z (with a manual gearbox). To most people, we should be driving each other's car just because of our so-called "age group", but instead we drive the car that suits our individual tastes (and budget) :)
