  1. thanks all for replies. having looked at them again, in the cold light of day, they aren't that bad so i think i will go ahead with the mot, thanks again all who replied. :)
  2. that is what i was thinking rayaans, however seems a waste with the amount of tread left on the tyres, but as they are 5 years old perhaps it is a good idea to change them, really not quite sure really.
  3. car is just coming up to 5 years old and has done 30,000 miles,pre-mot walk round and it looks like there are cracks in between the tread on the tyres, plenty of tread on the tyres ,is this necessarily a mot failure ,i think the tyres are original, any advise would be greatly appreciated.
  4. i use tom-tom speed camera alert, as an app on my phone, on longer journeys and i would say my Lexus indicated speed is a good 5 mph under the gps indicated speed.
  5. first time i have had tpms on a car and have relied on this really, however after 6 months thought i would check them , all ok .
  6. anybody use a saris bone bike rack on their IS250 , if so is it easy to put on and off, thanks for any replies.
  7. nail on the head dutchie01, totally back of the net :)
  8. on my normal commute this morning i was about half way to work , only 7 miles , and the warning beep sound and an audio message said " you have crossed the border "nothing else , no warning lights and the rest of the journey went ok ,same route as normal and no borders in that area to my knowledge ,any ideas anybody or did i possible mis-hear the message.
  9. bottom one any day , more modern in my humble opinion :)
  10. only ever used the computer , so not really that accurate , however over the 4 years i had the car , my commute , 7 miles each way , was 29 , and on a road trip was about 37 .
  11. sometimes it's easier not to reply ,even when you believe you are right
  12. sorry just an opinion , just changed from gen 2 to gen 3 , so assumed i could make a reasonable comment on actual cars i have owned recently .
  13. used autoglym on my bmw 325i leather seats and both my lexus Is 250 leather seats and found it to be as good as any , we have leather seats in most of our aircraft and i have been lucky to try quite a few different products and autoglym seems to be as good as any .
