  1. USRS reviews

    I believe so, there was someone on the US facebook group that was sold an F with 18" lexus wheels on. It looked terrible by the way. Very under-wheeled. Possibly be OK if you put larger side walled tyres on.
  2. Ah, shame to hear this but I'm hopeful it will result in an an even better day! I've cancelled all the FB events I created. I'm sure if they want to know why they can come here to find out more.
  3. New battery

    Like this:
  4. New battery

    Yes, but if you turn the 068 battery around 180deg, the positive terminal would be drivers side and at the rear.
  5. New battery

    Really useful info! From the info you've given I'm pretty sure the right battery to get would be a 068 (not the 069 you have). It appears the 068 is same dimensions and spec, but with the terminals reversed. That also ties up with what ECP recommends for my reg number.
  6. Ebay Overseas Buying Query

    You'll be protected so long as you use PayPal. Just be aware that sometimes import duties are included in shipping costs. And sometimes they are not.
  7. Superb video. Surprised he is shifting manually. Thought auto would be quicker.
  8. Finally Royal (mess-up) Mail delivered the studs. So we got them pressed in, assembled and test drive complete! Car drives normal with some pulling to one side during braking (which is to be expected). Quick picture fitted, sorry for poor quality, was in a rush. But this method CAN be done!
  9. Light weight Lotus seats, lovely. I assume none of the electrics or heating functions work now? What sort of modifications did you need to make to fit them? Just rail adapters? I did a search on the US forums but found nothing so you might be the first to do that. Some people have swapped RC-F seats into IS-Fs too. I love the RCF seats, so much better than the IS.
  10. Various Facebook group events setup for the following groups: Lexus Fanatics UK (LFUK) https://www.facebook.com/groups/551908041656635/ Lexus IS250/350/ISF Owners page https://www.facebook.com/groups/454819484634626/ Lexus IS F Owners https://www.facebook.com/groups/LexusISF/ Lexus ISF Owners Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1701231896796151/ Lex Nation https://www.facebook.com/groups/LexNation/ Should encourage a few more cars to come out the woodwork. If anyone else can help spread the word, please do!
  11. Do we know start and finish times for both dates yet?
  12. Out of interest Paul, was that on a facebook group? Not seen any posts made. There are a few closed (private) groups for F owners, so might put something up.
  13. Very nice mods! Do you have any interior shots? Are the seats from an Audi RS or something? I bet the low mileage white one was @Warrington guy who recently traded in for an M4. I can see why you'd like it. Wouldn't most the parts just swap over anyway?
  14. Yeah - Still working on an adaptor. Studs I ordered got lost in the post during the bad weather. So have had to order some more.
  15. Can we make sure it's posted on the Facebook groups too. A lot of people only seem interested in social media events, rather than good 'ol forums.
