  1. Yup those above ..when I mentioned that I got their details off a forum they knew it was this one ....
  2. £17.50 to cut a supplied flip key to my original that had fallen apart, considering timpsons wanted £140 to cut their own non flip key blank and refused to touch mine I'm chuffed with what I payed.
  3. Had mine cut today, nice helpful guys working there, can recommend them for any key issues car or otherwise.
  4. Thanks for the locksmiths in Birmingham details ....off there today.
  5. Same reply I had when I asked Timpsons to cut a blank for me ...rip off
  6. Having issues finding a local key cutting place that's able to actually cut the Lexus key, seems that it needs a particularly :thin cutter and tracer (2mm) compared to the more normal 3mm that's used daily for seemingly every other key .....
  7. Mine went a couple of days back, ordered one of those flip type replacement ones from eBay, certainly looks stronger and shouldn't break this one.
  8. Brakes will work with the engine off, but there will be no servo assistance so they will be greatly reduced in their effectiveness. .... Carpet mats under the throttle cable has been an issue with Toyota /Lexus for many many years, only really suffered on start up when the engine has raced away upon turning the key, can only imagine the terror when it happens when traveling at speed.
  9. Saw the film yesterday but missed the dash ..,think I was too busy looking at the tasty police woman By the way, I really want that modern interpretation of the Jenson interceptor .
  10. Yes those are the type I was considering as it has front and rear camera views, which as I said would be useful when reversing.
  11. Yea seen that camera, it is nice and small but needs hard wiring in to the car and id prefer to run one off the cigar lighter socket, plus a screen would be preferable although I think its a bit of a no no to have it showing when driving from what I gather, been looking at ones with a add on rear camera which would he useful when reversing and using the screen.
  12. If I used a phone to do this then the chances are I would forget just when I needed it, so was looking for a dedicated camera that's permanently fixed on the screen behind the rear view mirror, so out of sight and hard to see unless really looked for. This is just for the Lexus as not needed for my other car so no need to be swapped over at times, so should record on a loop as soon as its powered up, and stops when the ignition is turned off, not sure if there is a discount available from the insurance company, but at this moment that's not an issue as the is200 has saved me some money compared to my scooby when it comes to premiums, it was just the conversation I had when I was searching for cover that made me think it might be worthwhile should some scrote decide to try and fleece me.
  13. As I was informed I seem to live in the cash for crash capital when renewing my cars insurance today, it made me think about purchasing one of those dash or screen mounted cameras to record any incident that may or may not happen ...... anyone used one or can advise on whats what? Don't really want to spend a fortune though.
  14. Thanks for all the reply's, now I know it was just lack of gas that was stopping the system from working I can always get it vacuum and refilled correctly, £17 for the halfords can to confirm that was ok for me.
  15. Does the is200 have full climate control? The reason I'm asking is following on from my air Con not working thread, I've now regassed it with one of those refill cans from halfords, and its working nicely now and really cold air from the vents, but when its set to auto and the temp dial is on its coldest the a/c cuts in and out as if its reached its desired temp and then cuts back in again ..... is this what climate control does normally as I've not had a car that's had this feature before on a a/c system, just comes on and stays, on but those cars just had a hot to cold dial, not a temperature one.
