  1. Got a 2015 IS 200t F Sport. I tend to drive it mainly on weekends, so whilst its standing i notice the brake discs become a brown rusty colour. When i drive the car and then park it up the colour disappears, however after a couple of days parked up, they begin to become a brown rusty colour again. Is there a way to keep them looking silver? Hoping someone can assist, thank you
  2. UPDATE: So i purchased a new battery from Lexus which they also fitted and start up issue solved. Starts without any hesitation. Thank you to everyone for your help.
  3. Thanks for the help. I think so aswell. I dont drive the car much as its a weekend car. Im going to buy a trickle charger and see how i get on. Allthough it struggles as per video, at times it starts without much hesitation
  4. Thank you very much to everyone who has provided some help and advise. I havent done anything over the festive period but im going to buy a bolt meter and charger today and do the various tests suggested. I will update you as soon as ive done them. Thanks again
  5. Hi, Ok so this morning I had the same issue reappear. Please find a video enclosed, I tried to capture what was going on, hope somebody can help? The car did end up starting. I drove it for half a mile turned it off then restarted it and it started no problem but initially on first start this morning it was playing up? Can anyone help, shed some light on this please?

  6. Thank you very much to everyone who has provided some help. Car is back from its servuce andceverything seems to be fine. So hopefully it will be ok moving forward. They also did a health check and sent me a video with the engineer who was looking after the car, only thing was the wipers were smearing alittle bit so got them changed. He said other than that everything is good.
  7. Thanks for helping. So as i approach tje car it opens normally and then i press the brake pedal as normal and all the ligjts and symbols light up as normal. Its when i press the start button the engine hesitates and i feel it struggling for about 2 seconds trying to ignite or tick over
  8. Thanks, its going for a 40k major service so hopefully they can check. I just went out to start it again after 3 hours since my last drive and it was perfect.
  9. Hi, thanks for the reply, i have read this eleswhere but i am concerned as my previious Lexus IS300 sport (2002) never had any such problems, ive owned that car for 12 years and alltiugh its a key start, i never had any problems with cold weather starting, so this being alot newer car i am concerned. Has it happened to your car?
  10. Thanks for the reply. My friends brother is a mechanic and he suggested if it was the Battery then when i start it again immediatley after the first time it hesitated it would struggle even more or just not start. So when i start it and it struggled, i turned it off and started it again and it was fine, but the next day it struggledagain?

  12. Hi, About 6 months ago i purchased a 2015 Lexus IS 200t F Sport, its only done 24000 miles and i am very happy with it. However, during the last 2 weeks i have noticed when i attempt to push button start it, it hesitates and struggles for a couple of seconds then it starts, it first seemed like a low battery but i am told the battery is fine. Its not normal as befire it would start without any hesitation. It is due the 40000 service which ive booked but im somewhat concerned why is this hesitation , strughling happening. Can anyone please help with this? Thank you
  13. Hi All, This is my first post, so any help would be most appreciated. I have been a proud Lexus owner for a few years now. I began with an IS 200 Sport and now I own a IS 300 Sport Aero. I had the same problem with my IS 200 and now the dreaded Error 3 has appreard on my IS 300 CD head unit. I have decided not to go down the 'fix it route' I am going to buy a non factory replacement. However, I really want to maintain that Lexus factory look inside the cabin, so which would be the best CD headunit that looks and resembles the original factory one that I can purchase, I've seen a Kenwood, but I tought I would get your opinion. Once again, any help would be great. Thanks.
