  1. After driving this, I am definitely interested in an IS300... Moarr Power If your doing the brakes yourself, get the Lexus brake tool or those C clamps, my regular draper brake rewind thing annoyingly didn't work!... Those tutorials are a godsend Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Definitely agree about room for moving about haha Yeah, it's shockingly grimey around the seals which is annoying [emoji849] should've cleaned it better than I have Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. perfect guide for rear brakes
  4. Saturday Changed front disc and pads and cleaned up wit a wire bush and copper greased everything. With the calliper on the left side (Seized side noted on MOT), one of the rubber springgy bit's doesn't really pop back effectively, so I'm pretty sure I need a new one of those, as it isn't being pushed back out picked up today 2 second hand rear springs found on ebay, but only managed to replace the drivers rear strut, disc and pads cut my hand, curse a lot and get wet... Will try and do the passenger side eventually so it can be retested for Saturday Need a bloody garage!!!

  6. Let me get it MOT'd first(and taxxed), then I'll run a quarter of the M25 and let y'all know if it ran like a Swiss watch? Does that imply it runs smoothly unlike a watch that tick tocks? Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. You bet. I'll have to pop the hood when I get home to have a look [emoji102] fingers crossed it's just low on coolant... Who's making bets against that?? Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. I'm loving all the positive stories about buying cars without seeing them, I am still interested in horror stories though haha Update: Took out the battery and charged it, put it back in the car and it started first time last night whoop whoop. Sounds metally when moving but I put that down to rust on breaks from sitting for so long I have a gurgling sound behind the dash but I've read that could be air in the system? Gonna scan it later today, hopefully I'll have no errors and need to book it in for an MOT next Sat or Sun Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Gonna charge the battery over night and see what happens.. will keep y'all posted. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. I will have a search for that post. Will replace the belt and water pump for piece of mind anyway tho. I started it, so far I'm happy with the purchase.... Took about 3 minutes to figure out how to move the seat forward because. E L E C T R I C....S E A T S =D and a sunny roof Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Lol yupppp... I got sucked in by the price... Just thinking what's the worse that can happen, cambelt parts are cheapish and looks easy to do.. just pray for me Herbie x Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Hi all Just purchased a 2004 Lexus from eBay with 89k miles on the clock for a bargain however it hasn't been driven since August, has a few issues and needs Haven't been to see it yet but it's got part service history, heated leathers, all electrics work (apparently) but doesn't start due to a dead battery (time will tell) Previous Mots look like i may need to change suspension components which I'm comfortable with and brake discs maybe... Then I'll scan using my eBay obd reader What in particularl should I be looking for? Will update later wih whether or not I've bought a lemon Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
