  1. Sounds like a broken heater flap someone changed pollen filter without puting it in recirc mode
  2. Yes as Luigi says just tape the sensor to top oth the battery
  3. Is the iron x alright to put on the body paint i thought it was just for the alloys or might just get a mobile valeter to do it for me
  4. Well took the car to a body Paint specialist in Thorne He concluded it was indeed motoway debris in fact most of it brake debris and bits of rubber he took out a credit card and it started coming of with a few strokes said if i get a spray bottle with a bit of washing up liquid and hot water leave it for 10 mins should wipe off. Said he didnt rate the prep as you just bought it, the valeter if he knew his stuff should have known this and the quality control person should also have known said if worked for me he would have been sacked . He also reccomended me to clay bar it the whole car he put a plastic bag on his hand and said even the upper body has imperfections on it so i may do that
  5. Just a update Car is running ok but ....... I found the display takes a few seconds to come on my last one was instant I suppose this is how they are ? The rear bunper and the vertical lower part of boot lid is rough to the touch as though it is contaminated with something i suspect its traffic dirt but it wont come off with shampoo and i found 2 or 3 chips on driver side front wing it looks like it had some waxy sruff in the chips and when i washed it it had dislodged. I did contact Siddcup who said the paintwork was upto lexus standard when you took it and the 4 hr journey home could have chipped the paint as for the road contaminates it was a very rainy day when you took it so will just want a good clean so all in all not very pleased with that I am taking it to my local body shop for an assesment on monday. thankfully the alloys are ok no marks
  6. Yes and it took a while to download the files too and you have to have a 64gb memory stick Formated to FAT32 but it was worth it But Shahpor it was no bother putting it on, the car told you to do everything on the screen Hope that helps and thanks for telling me about the site much appreciated Robert
  7. Hi Shahpor I loaded the update this morning it was very easy i was a bit intrepid in case it corrupted something but went on with no trouble it took 92 min i left car running on driveway but you can drive it while its updating its just the initial veryfing that you have to switch off then back on again. I am sure the maps will be upto date £50 is better than paying lexus 200 anyway its all done something may be obvious that as updated but cant tell yet
  8. It might be the Aircon Drain plug blocked under car if its ok you should see small pool of water under car just under driver side if the air con as been on. Its a common problem with the US cars
  9. Yes i have got it was slow downloading and the 64 g Memory stick as to be Formated to FAT32 that was a nightmare but i downloaded a partition Program FreeWare and that did it i shall put it in today i tried the stick in the car and it verified it so i am sure it will work The Vendor was quite helpful I will let you know how it goes
  10. Yes Shahpor I totaly agree with you I have not seen another around here thats why i like it and its not that they are rubbish like some of the rare cars you see Like those big Citreons And Renaults that are rare Because they were no good constantly breaking down. My old GS450 i got the Extended warranty twice but never had to use it i shall be extending this when the complimentray runs out I went up to North yorkshire (Skipton ) for a ride out and it run superb I did notice a bit of Tyre Roar but they are New Dunlop Maxx but i will be inflating them with Nitrogen today last one run on that and it does make them run Quieter I cant be sure but i think the old one had slightly more poke than this but not too much was still very potent when pressing pedal and the fuel economy according to the readout was 41 the other use to do about 37 so all in all very pleased i have also got the update Map data but not installed it yet so thank you all for the advice that you gave was very much appreciated. Oh one other thing there is a Lexus Marked Holdall in the boot with Breakdown stuff in Hi vis Jacket warning triangle Alchol Test kit First aid kit is that standard or is it a EU kit for going over to continent but it as never been used THanks All Robert
  11. 12 month and 12 month breakdown i tried to get the 2 yr added on when he tried to sell me it but he wouldnt budge but i am satisfied at that its had a few journeys i am making sure all is well with it. They didnt give me too much for my old one but they have it up at 10 plus but i looked after it so whoever gets it will get a good one
  12. unfortuanatley there is no flap so it looks like the usb im sure it wont be a problem and yes it is nice to drive around knowing that there isnt too many 450s about
  13. Hi Shahpor,Nick Chris not had chance to take some pics as its bucketing down here its never stopped and got to get my own reg on it just a couple of points though 1 the sat nav is the origional 2014 can they be updated by owner or is it dealer option 2 On my old SE L the voice came out of centre speaker and i had a choice, pass, driver or centre this one is coming out of driver i have got volume up in settings to 7 but if the radio is on it can hardly be heard the SE L was a lot louder 3 It looks like the Headlights use just the same bulb does the headlight lift for high beam i cant see another bulb as i said i am just getting round to the options Thanks All
  14. Well i finaly decided and went down to see the Gs and to be honest was very pleased with it the only dark area that i found was the discs they were a bit rusty and one of the rears had a slight groove in it so we had a detailed discussion on this and we ended up looking at the specs of the discs and they were in the tolerances so i had a good run round in it and tried the brakes harshly and gently and they performed flawlessly so decided to have the car. Yes Adam you were quite right they was ok to deal with very courteous and said slightest problem let us know and we wouldnt expect you to come the 200ml we will arrange with your local lexus to appraise fault and liase with us One thing i noticed on my old SE L i had music options galore 6 Disc player HDD USB BT but this one as 1 disc USB and BT but the other one was overkill i suppose i didnt let that put me off The Mouse thingy was a bit awkward but just after 3 days ive got used to it The journey home was faultless and it was bucketing down with rain and as the tyres were Dunlop Maxx i was a little apprehensive but they were perfect but they are new One minor problem i found was that the Pass mirror did not drop on reverse but a quick phone call got the answer my local lexus told me to put it in reverse then drop mirror with control then back to park and then try again and voilla it worked I will get a few pics when i get myself sorted I would like to Thank you all for the excellent advice given its much appreciated Shahpor Nick Chris Mike Many thanks Robert
