  1. Lexus dealership is a right ***** take. Anyhow thanks for the help
  2. My gs300 2002 has an issue with the traction control unit. I suspect it's the traction control module, however I need it professionally diagnosed so is there any specialist preferrably near the Edinburgh/Glasgow area that I can go and get this issue diagnosed properly. Also is the traction control module difficult to remove and replace? thank you
  3. I actually have the m54engine. The is good and yes it does have its issues, ones that bmw are to apparently to blame for (piston rings). However if lexus could only better bmw in drive quality, they defo would be the best out there.
  4. Thank so very much for taking the time to give me a detailed response all users. In terms of handling, I am well aware this car isn't probably designed to go round corners fast which I can live with as the Lexus gs300 I have isn't really a car you want to drive fast. It's really a car you want to enjoy driving sensibly. So from that respect its all good. The speed of the car isn't really something that appeals to me. Put it this way, I have an is200 which I find great for speed and an e46 325i which I think does the job very in terms of speed. My only issue really is the ease of maintenance. I love doing my own work and must say I am tad pee'd off at Lexus part prices. They seem to be more expensive than BMW. On the tyre talk. I would stick with goodyear eagle tyres. My IS200 responds very very well to them.
  5. We actually have an 02 gs300 in the family which is a fantastic car (not so promising in terms of handling) that is in my opinion smooth and nice to be in. I have also drove a 06 gs300 which again was nice to be in but not so good in the handling department. I haven't though driven a gs450h.
  6. So have been doing research on gs450h and just wanted to ask a few questions: Are there any extras I should be looking out for although the gs450h is already well equipped? Should I worry about the hybrid battery on a 2008 vehicle? If so is there anywhere here up in Scotland that repair these issues? Is there anything else I should be aware of when looking to purchase one?
  7. Is it advisable to do so? If so, then which bushes should be greased. I ask because I would like to keep the car nice and smooth and perhaps maybe see if the suspension can become even more quiter and smoother
  8. True. OK then lexus it is. Hopefully Barry gadgy will give me a 10 percent discount. But I like dojng my own work and will buy any tool required, in that case is it advisable to do it or not?
  9. Take it trw at 40 quid a side is no good
  10. My front lower ball joint is very worn. Can users please share their experience in changing this part out? Also what brand should I look to replace with? And where should I buy from. Thanks
  11. I own a 2002 is200 which I'm sure has a standard suspension setup on it. Although I'm very happy with the way the car handles and rides, I was wondering if there is a possible solution to retaining the ride comfort with a lowered look. I'm not after a silly lowered look, just lower than what it is. I would also like to add spacers to the wheels, to give the car that bit of a more aggressive stance. Is there any advice that can be offered? Thanks.
  12. Sorry for late reply. The problem is not related to aircon use. I did though notice two air leaks - one at the induction and another at the air filter housing. I'm going to look in to that and see what the script is. Although I don't those leaks would cause much of an issue
  13. Steering pump hose leaking. Can anyone tell if this is a tricky diy and if there is a walk through on it? Also is there any specialists for Lexus in Scotland?
  14. Hoping someone can help. While stationary, I can hear - not necessarily feel - RPM's fluctuating. I can see the rev needle moving up and down in tune with the engine sound. The fluctuation is very smooth and takes around 4 seconds between fluctuations hence why it isn't noticeable. Any ideas what could be wrong and where to look?
  15. tyre size advice
