  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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: Yuasa HSB075 Silver 12V Car Battery 5 Year Guarantee
  11. Just reserved the Bosch 068 battery at ECP, but notice the terminals are at the front and + on right side with - on left side. Do I turn the battery around so terminals go at the back with + on left side and - on right closest to wing. This is how the current (Toyota) battery is? also will the battery clap and whatever holding it fit as normal. thanks
  12. Hi guys, gonna bump this thread again as I think I need a new battery. I think three years ago or may be four, I got the original from Lexus for £95 and fitted myself. Today when starting my car I noticed my folding mirrors did not open, then car did not start, only dials come on. Got jump start, drove home and car did not start. Is the Bosch straight fit as I remember when ECP and some 030 031 did not fit and then went Lexus. Please need to get one ASAP as I am career for my 89 year old father and need the car 😞 Thanks guys.
  13. Hi John Thanks for that as I remember doing that a few years back and the response from the car was great. Just to make sure, I'm doing it right. 1. Disconnect Battery 2. Take out MAF and clean using electrical clearner 3. Fix MAF and reconnect battery - Reset all windows.
  14. Hi All - Happy New Year! So i have a slight problem and maybe someone knows why my IS is doing this. When I start my car, put in drive gear the car takes a second break before it wakes up to go (as if it thinks "oh I need to move"). As I have a hump just before I leave my park park, when I slow down the car sometimes stalls as if there is no fuel or the rev falls well below the normal 1 rev counter and cuts the engine out. Once the car has warmed up the problem is gone! - It only happens for the first minute or two. Any ideas? Thinking to buy a BG44K.
