  1. Hi, I use an independent Lexus Technician who used to work for Lexus Woodford but set-up his own place in Hainault. He has been looking after my Lexus IS250 for the past 8 years and is very reliable, affordable and offers an appointment based system, so only works on your car. In fact I am booked in next week for service, pad all round and rear brake discs. I picked up the parts off ECP (Ebay) as they had 20% off plus the prices are a lot cheaper that their own website. The labour is £140 Give him a call if you like and find out what he says. Name: Dan Contact: 07878 018 732 Say Ishaq recommended you via Lexus Club as he promised to give us members a discount. Good luck
  2. Really? As the battery was replaced for Bosch S4 in May 2019.
  3. Ahh, I think my IS250 also needs a quick tune up as I have noticed that when starting up the car it is very sluggish and even drops the Rev so low that the car stalls - I have an automatic so embarrassing with the Mrs in the passenger seat. I am thinking it is carbon build up, but will take it on the motorway this weekend and see what happens. Second will disconnect the battery to reset Ecu. Any other recommendation? Shall I take to a garage to have it scanned for diagnosis.
  4. I thought I would give this a try and wow what a result! Super easy, cheap all you do is wipe to clean the lens and then use another wipe to protect. Armor All Headlight Restorer Kit Containing 2 Cleaning Wipes & 1 Protectant Wipe https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07M8GM3D9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_anMeFbTRADK6B My headlight were really bad but now has a new life and it has been 6 months already and seems like will last a long time. trust me, give it a go at only £10
  5. It’s £60 for first car then £30 for every other car so worth getting two or three done at same time: Green Engine Carbon Clean Lee - 07504 036807
  6. I had my car carbon cleaned every year and can say that my car runs very smooth and very responsive. For £60 it’s worth doing as the guy comes to you and take 30 mins. You can see all the black smoke coming out as he revs the engine every 10mins. when I am idling there is no shake and feels like the engine of off. I love it!
  7. I do the Carbon Clean, every year as part of my service and it has helped me big time. I notice the car much smoother. Google carbon clean to see if you have anyone in your area. Takes 30 minutes, I pay £60 (second car £30) so its worth it.
  8. You have to choose Lexus US, to find the correct version for the IS250. I think they come from Germany, but very well packed and come with instructions.
  9. I've had Climair on my IS250 for the past 4 years and honestly had no issues. They fit perfect and no noise or movement. I did look at Heko but could only find the fronts and no rears, also some others are the sticky ones. Climair just slide in and has two clips on the side, installation took me 20 minutes for the whole car.
  10. I have been using SAVA all round which is owned by Goodyear. Cost me £53 per tyre from HiQ including fitting Ratings are C (fuel), A (wet) and noise is 66dB - These tyres are excellent in my opinon and has same thread pattern as the Goodyear but without the price tag, On wet the handling is mind blowing, grips very well.
  11. Hi Newbie, is there a particular engine flush you would recommend? I am due for my 6 month oil change now, so picked up some 50% offer at ECP. Would like to try an engine flush as I never done so before.
  12. Thanks guys, all good with the Bosch S4 and for £75 at ECP (price matched) I’m really happy. also fit was straight forward and easy. Thanks John.
  13. Thought the same, found the paperwork and it was February 2014 so five years ago (how time flys). I thought battery’s should last 8-10 years as the scheduled time on my car maintenance is showing 2021 after I resent it when I put the old battery in.
  14. Thanks John. Do I still use the old housing (black plastic top) as the Bosch battery is slightly out of dimensions as you say tight fit. There was one at Halfords that matched the same sort of dimensions: https://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductMobileDisplay?catalogId=10151&categoryId=165762&langId=-1&productId=734751&storeId=10001 Yuasa HSB075 Silver 12V Car Battery 5 Year Guarantee
