  1. To be honest I didn't haggle, thought the £14.23 was still a bargain, maybe if you need them try and haggle and see how cheap you can get them for lol
  2. I bought a pair of Bosch wipers (22" & 20") for my is220d for £14.23 off eBay which I thought was a good deal! Still available now eBay item # 330863388959
  3. I have to be doing 80mph in mine which is about 2000rpm before I can use 6th gear comfortably, usually keep it in 5th which also helps keep the DPF clean..........
  4. You also get 2 years full AA recovery with it, if they offered me 2 years cover for the price of one then I would snap their hands off, I've also had the clutch release bearing replaced under extended warranty - total cost so far in repairs is about £600 and considering the AA over is £150 pa I'm breaking even and I still have just over a years warranty left so it's a no brainer!
  5. My is220d was in yesterday for it's yearly service (small service) fuel filter also changed as well as the brake fluid, was told the water pump is leaking and needs changing as well, this was done under extended warranty including fresh coolant which I was going to have changed anyway - total cost to me was £250, water pump change out alone inc labour is £330, so glad I took the extended warranty out last year!
  6. IS250 Manual - Clutch replacement

    My is220d has covered 116,000 miles and recently I had the clutch release bearing changed under extended warranty, the flywheel and clutch plates were inspected and both were in reasonable condition, I elected to have the clutch plates changed which only cost me £350 as Lexus picked up the labour under the extended warranty scheme.
  7. To be fair mine has been the same when starting during the recent low temperatures (-1 degree's) but in normal temperatures it starts immediately, thought this was normal to be fair.
  8. My is220d flew through it's MOT today and without any advisories as well, annual service due in February next year and will have the EGR valve pulled and cleaned at the same time - definitely feeling the love at the moment!
  9. Just had the release bearing replaced under extended warranty, DMF was ok but whilst they had the gearbox removed I had them replace the clutch plates which I paid for, cost me £315.50 which I thought was a good price, usual good service from Lexus Teesside, courtesy car Lexus is300h (which I did not want to give back) and full valet on mine prior to being collected - Well done again Lexus of Teesside!
  10. 115,000 miles on my 2007 is220d, going in next week for clutch release bearing replacement and DMF inspection, these will be replaced under extended warranty, whilst they are in to the clutch I've told them to replace the clutch plates at my expense, I've been quoted £350 inc vat for the plates.
  11. I bought a genuine Lexus 2015/2016 dvd from a guy on eBay who had upgraded to the 2016/2017 disc, it worked perfectly and as you would expect all functions are working. Cost me £50! Apparently the guy updates every year so I told him when he upgrades next year to get in touch with me and I will purchase the old one again, at £50 I'm still quids in me thinks! The one I had was Europe 2006/2007 from when the car was new, the one I bought is just UK but a lot more accurate than the older one......
  12. IS250 Manual DMF

    My is220d is in next week for release bearing replacement (under extended warranty) the DMF will be inspected and replaced at the same time if required (under extended warranty) I am paying for the clutch plates to be changed (£350) - Not bad deal under the extended warranty scheme me thinks.......
  13. Not noticed anything more than their already was but will now monitor it more closely, this always was an issue from day one with some cars.
  14. They are, I can recommend them to any Lexus owner who lives in the area.
  15. My is220d was in a couple of weeks ago and I got a hybrid loan car, car was completely valeted and £25 of fuel was added, only complaint was they put supermarket diesel in and when I had my egr cleaned they told me that I should only use BP Ultimate etc. Needless to say quite a bit of squirming when I pointed this out lol Overall though Lexus of Teesside always go the extra mile, well done Lexus!
