  1. Yes i do actually have them, i sold the car but they are still here for sale

  2. aero alloys

    You wouldn't still have these wheels going spare would you?
  3. Alloy Repair or Refurb

    Wheel refurbishing place - I know that a lot of dealers that charge you over £100 per wheel send them to this place out in Flaunden. http://www.wheelrefurbishing.com/our-prices/ They charge £45 to the public per wheel which is very good. They charge the dealers somewhere in the 30s so you start to get an idea of main dealer repair markups (they're huge). Hope this helps :)
  4. Alloy Repair or Refurb

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/99-05-LEXUS-is200-ALLOY-18-inch-TTE-WHEEL-SPARE-225-40-18-tyre-7mm-Pirelli/282841711561 saw this on ebay. I have the same wheels and have gone through over 3 sets since new. they are basically like butter. if you take them to a wheel refurb place they will tell you if it is worth fixing them. I've lost plenty to huge potholes unfortunately.....
  5. Thought I would bump this!
  6. Had mine done a few years ago. I was on the third six CD changer (first one replaced under warranty and the second sourced from a scrap yard when the second failed). I had a fitting company do it and they had to remove the amp and used an amp bypass harness and double din fascia adaptor. Took a few hours to do but the job was a good one and has worked fine since.
  7. I have a GROM that would fit the head unit going spare - please messgage me if you would like it
  8. Older IS200 under £1500

    definitely good history, service book stamps. at the age they are now the cam belt should have been changed once or even twice. check for corrosion at rear of sills. Lexus quality means everything like windows/roof/electric seats should still be working.
  9. 4 Wheel Alignment

    Yes Wheels in Motion will get it sorted - click the link in my sig below
  10. Tyre Wear (rear) - 4 wheel alignment

    As above - go to Tony at Wheels in Motion - they will definitely be able to help http://www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk/
  11. IS200 SE

    Was thinking about the IS300 which is every ten years. So a lot of IS200s now should have had two cambelt changes?
  12. IS200 SE

    This is a good guide: Fully stamped service book, cambelt change at 10 years or 100k. Check the car is straight and that the rear sills are not going - some let water in and can rot from the inside. These cars are reliable so can go on well over 100,000 miles. Check there is no noise on full lock. Check tyres for inner tyre wear; they are notorious for this. Everything electrical should work. Check the sunroof seal and the sunroof mechanism - that is a costly fix.
  13. IS300 '51 Need some advice

    How much does a terraclean cost and what does it involve?
  14. Is it straight, has it got a full service history and does everything work on it? Does it have an MOT? How are the tyres? Also what is the price? Not saying you shouldn't buy it because the LS400 has a ridiculously high build quality so 200,000 miles does not mean its at the end of its life....
