  1. Why would getting right hand drive covers make a difference the wing mirrors are all the same if LHD or RHD?
  2. Hi all, Well over the weekend my dash board lit up like with the engine management, traction control and check VSC! Car goes into limp mode. My car has 120k and has been brilliant since I have owned it. Made a call to terraclean and found a technician who came out within a few hours. Checked my EGR valve and cleaned it, then I took it out for a drive with the technician who had his tablet connected to car but sadly when I went to give it some the car went into limp mode again. back to the house and the technician gets the stuff out to put through the DPF filter. After about 40 minutes we go for another drive this time steady and he sets of the regen on the car while watching the temps. Car does what it’s supposed to do and I’m back up and running. I have since 140 mile and all is well. Cost £200
  3. Hi all, so my air con compressor has packed in and needs replacing, the noise it’s making sounds like metal vibrating around when the engine is on and the air con is off or on. I can see the pully has seized too. Car drives fine but sounds awful 😥 Has anyone had this issue and what was the cost to get it repaired. Have seen a Denso compressor on eBay £345 so not sure if that’s a good deal or not and get a garage to fit it? Regards joel
  4. Hi, cheers for the response guess I will take it to a main dealer. Does the paid membership give discount to either Newcastle or teeside Lexus dealer as when looking I count the see
  5. Hi all, Anyone in the North East can recommend a really good garage in the above areas for service and MOT? Just the guy I currently use is retiring end of next month and need to find a new mechanic and garage. regards Joel
  6. Mine has 113500 miles and it’s running well touch wood. Not sure if it makes a difference but since I have had my 2008 IS220d SE Multimedia i have always used shell vpower.
  7. Hi all, my local indi was getting old so I decided to go to main dealership and I have to Lexus Teeside has been really good I cannot fault them.
  8. So it turns out the air mix servos were fine however the dash board had to come out to check the air con / heater matrix which is a 4-5 hour job and with labour being £125 + VAT the unit needed a good clean since dust and muck had stuck to the grease on all the moving parts. Work all carried out and air con gassed just in time for the hot weather. health check and car washed as standard.
  9. So I have contacted Teeside Lexus and the car goes in on the 30th April if it’s the servo then the job will cost including the part £280 to £300 but if it’s the heater matrix it’s a dash out job and he said about £1000 to get that done. im hoping it’s just the servo as I say it’s blowing cold out of once side and when I turn on heat all produce heat. will keep you all posted
  10. Hi all, So today we finally get a warm day in the north east so I put my air con to cold for the first time. (I run my air con all year round) however when I was expecting nice ice cold air I was just getting cold air compared to the passenger side that was getting all the nice ice cold air. Both sides were set to low but only one side gets the ice cold air. called Lexus Teesside who said it could be the Air mix servo that could be sticking and not going down all the way to low. Has as anyone experienced this issue before if so did it cost a lot to get fixed or is there a hack to reset it? Regards Joel
  11. Regarding fuel if you have room in your tank they will put up to £25 pounds worth in when I was speaking to the technician from Teeside. yes I think the person who is doing the dash work must be tall as my seat was all right back. did you get the dark red CT?
  12. Hi all, Since it's Friday i thought lets have some fun, so who has the most miles on there Lexus IS200D? I am currently on 94k on a 08 Plate.
