  1. I have used Westfield on a few occasions , one of them being a big job on a LS600h and i would definitely recommend them . Just give them a call first as they are always busy and it might take a while until they fit you in.

    Ls600hl suspension woes.

    The front noise from the brakes it might be from the brake pads fitting kit . I had the same on mine and changed it on front and rear so it is quiet now. Phone should work without any issues , mien does not need to be added every time so you might do something wrong .
  3. Hi Tim, The best to get will be for you to decide to be honest as it depends on everyone needs . For example LS460 they are all RWD in UK while LS600 are all AWD . LS460 has a decent size boot while LS600 has a smaller size which for me is fine but for others it might not be . Fuel consumption i suspect on a long run to be the same but in town or short journeys the LS460 will have a worse fuel consumption compared with the 600h . If you want the rear relaxation pack that was available only on the 600h here in UK . The list can go on but if you have any particular questions feel free to ask .
  4. In my opinion now after i have a car with so many toys but without the RSR , i would choose any of them , depending on the price , mileage , condition . My LWB still has heated and cooled seats with a bit of recline in them , rear dvd screen but that is played from the front DVD and all the climate and audio controls from the armrest in the back + blinds . It depends if you would really have someone to use them , for example kids , but other than that they will not be used much . Also in case someone use them you always need to remember and check that they have not left the heating or the cooling of the seat on , very different temperatures . You either check them every time , either disable them from the front console every time someone has been in . It will be nice to show it off to friends every time but depending on your personality you might also be annoyed as they might leave a bit of mess every time when they do it . Go , have a look at both , drive them if possible and chose after , don't set your mind on just one and miss the other .
  5. If you search good enough on the forum you will find that someone did some thorough investigation and found out that the shock absorbers from the IS250 would fit , if my memory serves me well .
  6. Usually there is a height sensor that corrodes and needs to be replaced , or the self levelling motor . I would suggest to check those first .
  7. Unfortunately the apple operating system IOS does not allow to do the transfer on that version of Bluetooth and satnav , it is the same in my LS. The best suggestion would be to see of you can transfer the numbers on an android phone . Either transfer, borrow an android phone or manual input in the phone and connect that to your Bluetooth as that will allow you yo transfer the agenda . I have attached the Satnav manual and you find information there about how to set it manually from page 139 pf the manual and 151 of the pdf. OM50715U.pdf
  8. Also as far as i am aware if you do your annual hybrid health check at Lexus you get an extra year warranty and it only costs £36 . I am doing mine on 25th this month for a peace of mind but to be honest even if i would actually have an issue and not be covered by the warranty i would use Richard from Hybrid battery solutions who is present on this forum and sorted out my previous GS450h .
  9. Ebay says 275 people bought them so they can't be that bad . I would say give it a try and it is not ok you can always return it . When mine went on the gs450 i have bought some osrams from for about £60-70 i don;t remember exactly .
  10. Maybe you are right , i have no idea . But even so that's why on the journey made yesterday by the OP at that speed i was expecting something closer to 30 if he reset the trip computer as soon as he hit the motorway . Maybe the car has the units set to US gallons :)
  11. It can't be normal as the guys in US are getting 18/19 mpg city driving and 30 mpg at 80mpg and 33 mpg at 70mph where fuel is worse and the gallon is smaller to. According to what i have seen on the US forum and also applicable to any car the factors that can impact the economy are : 1) Oil , better economy with 0W-30 vs 5W-30 2) Air filter 3) Tyre pressure 4) Fuel quality , try some Shell V Power on a longer run Also on Fuelly , your car seem to get better mileage : Pictures attached are from US forum .
  12. Take it for a longer run and see what you get then . Reset the trip computer , do a 50 mile journey on the motorway with the cruise at 70-80 and see what you get . At least like this you can compare both fuel consumption and see if you have any problem .
  13. I had my mirror smashed by another driver and the only sensible option was a used one from ebay . Lexus offered me the glass only for about £350 .
  14. For that code you could check the gaskets between the Y-pipe in the exhaust , from the engine just before the cats . I had the same error on mine as it was blowing air from there just before the cats and post 1 set of lambda so the 2nd set of lambda was seeing abnormal readings . Just put it on a ramp and if you see black soot around that area just change the gaskets .
  15. I know Vasilis, i was talking about both but on a closer look you are right and it seems that on the LS460 should have the 30gb HDD . I have attached here a few specs that i have found for the LS from 2008 - 2009 - 2010 so i don't know what to say :( 2008LS460_sf (1).pdf 2009LS460-LS460-L_sf.pdf 2010_LS_460.460_L_Product_Info.pdf
