  1. Personally I would forget about looking for a CT200h and continue your search for an IS250 SE-L. Having drove both vehicles I can say the IS250 is far superior in every way. Sure you will save on fuel costs but it's nowhere near as comfortable to drive not to mention dreadful performance. Trust me you will be disappointed if you buy this over the 250.
  2. The repair bill could be quite deer 😄
  3. Not necessarily. I took my 250 to Lexus Wolverhampton with about a quarter of a tank and got nothing.
  4. Totally agree and makes you realise how good the IS is after running about in a CT200h all day. I think it's dreadful to be honest.
  5. Over heating please help

    Failed head gasket perhaps?
  6. Changing the plugs on the 250 at 22k is totally unnecessary. Makes no difference whatsoever how old the plugs are, it's the actual milage that counts.
  7. I called Lexus bristol today after reading this post and they said there is no recall for the original airbag recall that they are aware off.
  8. Lexus IS220D - lack of power over 2k

    It does sound like the EGR valve but since you have recently had a new one fitted I'm thinking it's turbo related, possibly a stuck wastegate.

    Sounds like a faulty fuel pump. Try pressing down on the gas and brake pedal as far as they will go and then press the ignition. This will probably get the car started but you will need to get the fuel pump checked out.
  10. The rears are the biggest problem and they really do need cleaning and regreasing every 6 months or they will seize up. The fronts are a different design and not as prone to seizing as the rears. These can be serviced every 12 months. Apparently it's an easy job for you guys but I get my Toyota dealership to service mine at every 6 month service. Even your local independent service centre will do all 4 for as little as £40. It's very important to keep on top of this as new calipers can be quite expensive as I discovered on a previous Lexus.
  11. That's very good. My 250 F-sport has averaged 28.6 over a year, but it's a 2.5 litre V6 engine and I like to use it. I could easily get much better mpg if I drove like a granny.
  12. Bit of an interior change

    Looks heaps better than the wood IMO and what great job you have done fitting it too. Looks really cool 😎

    Hello rod and welcome to the forum 😀 The 250 is awesome. Trust me you won't be disappointed.
  14. Agree with you there @Linas.P my 250 still had the original Dunlops on the rears at 33k and still had a good 12 months life in them. However the uniroyal rainsports I had fitted to the fronts at 21k have less tread than the rears.
  15. It may look clean but don't assume it is. You would be surprised at how quickly an air filter can clog up with invisible dirt robbing you of valuable air. Air filters cost peanuts and are easy to replace (even I can do it) Well worth changing every year I say.
