  1. What’s it like in this weathet

  2. Is300h considering

    What’s it like in this weather
  3. Hi thinking of changing my is 220 d to is300h what do owners think of their is 300h thanks
  4. Yeah the pipes had frozen just got to let them thaw when weather improved which they did low and behold it’s happened again along with water tank frozen
  5. Thanks all I will try to warm it up and see what may be I previously noted that there is a button inside for headlight washing but it never worked so I assumed it was a dummy even now cover is open it’s not discarding any water so may be faulty as it’s never worked before guess I’ll pop down to local Lexus dealer for advice and see what they say no doubt another expense coming soon after someone hit the car other day and left no note to admit it. £200 repair cost to bumper and now this
  6. Thanks Nemesis my model does not have headlight washing facility I guess this is just a dummy cover then any ideas why it won’t close? thanks
  7. Hi can anyone tell me what these covers are for? came to the car today after all the snow has cleared and found this cover open and it will not close i have attached a photo thanks in advance for yet again the support kully
  8. hi Steve you have used these before and they are reliable?
  9. hi Ahmedali i am toying around with the idea that maybe the dpf pressure unit could be at fault rather than dpf itself and maybe just maybe the unit is reading pressure wrong and not allowing regen, im just biting at different ideas at moment. i have very little knowledge of cars mechanically but just a thought mechanic put inn my head
  10. hi do you guys use a certain retailer to get parts. i am looking for a dpf pressure unit part number 89480-53010 wonder if there are any particular cheap retailers you use? thanks as always kully
  11. yes so i read. definitely not doing removal but look for a reputable cleaning company but gain cost vary drastically from a local company who can clean dpf with heat for £110 assuming i remove the dpf for them which will cost £70 from local garage to remove and refit other companies clean using chemicals and charge £400 but not sure which will give better results in long term
  12. thanks normski so many different solutions out there it confuses me which option to go for i want a definite tried and tested solution failing that getting rid of my lovely is 220d se-L for is250 pity as i love the car with all its gadgets
  13. how long ago did you have yours done now and what did they do dpf removal?
  14. Hi I have had the engine management light check vsc and traction control light leading up to this car was a little sluggish in lower gears. had diagnostics ascertain the fault to be p2002 can anyone tell me what to do as i have had many differing instructions i have tried forced regeneration but am told build up too much to force have cleaned egr valve ha anyone had this exact issue correctly rectified have heard of dpf removal but not really sure i want to do that as may sell at some point to IS 250 to rid of diesel issue with dpf i am in Wolverhampton anyone local who has had the same problem and can point me in right direction would be bonus. i have read of following dpf removal cleaning by jet wash cleaning by oven heat and terraclean so many options not sure which to go for which will definatel solve my problem. many thanks kully
