  1. I lost one recently and obtained a spare through Lexus Liverpool. Cost of the fob was £327 but they waived the programming fee of around £120.
  2. Test drive an IS300H. Try in normal mode, then switch to sports mode. You may well be surprised 🙂
  3. Thanks Mark, that is so helpful. I do not have a panel removal tool, but as I am self isolating at the moment this will give me something to do:)
  4. Anyone know how to open up the back of the sun visor? Stupid me, I put a small laminated parking pass in the mirror of the visor on the drivers side for ease of access, then closed the sliding cover! The pass then disappeared into the visor:( Not life threatening, but would be good to retrieve it. Thanks
  5. Quite worrying if thieves are checking posts on this site to select their next victim. I keep mine garaged overnight behind an electric door, but guess nothing is safe in todays world and unlikely that the police will do much, other than to issue a crime number and circulate your number plate.
  6. Update. I phoned the 0800 044 452 number on the Recall Checker and - interestingly - neither my registration number nor VIN number showed up the Toyota system. When I inputed my reg no on my home pc, my vehicle was recognised and advised that my vehicle was subject to a voluntary customer service campaign or outstanding safety recall. Advice from Toyota was to contact my Lexus dealer and check with them. I then spoke to Lexus in Liverpool, with whom I have an extended warranty and service contract, and - after checking - they have advised me that this is not a safety issue but something that can be done during my next scheduled service and involves downloading data from the ecu. This ties in with Pauls comment earlier (post 12)
  7. Annual health check was done in August last year, so not due another one until August of this year. Vehicle has covered 17000 miles from new and been regularly serviced by Lexus.
  8. The initial message I got - by text - was: Lexus wish to check your vehicles Hybrid system
  9. Just been advised by Lexus Chester that I need to bring my vehicle in to have the hybrid system checked. Apparently it is a Lexus recall as vehicle is in-between services. Anybody else has this?
  10. Thanks Joe I really appreciate your help with this. Unfortunately my car does not have a door beneath the radio, so must be a different model:(
  11. Thanks Joe, that is very helpful. Only one more question, where is the micro sd card located?
  12. Would also be interested in the answer to Matt8's question as have never been happy with the lights on my IS
  13. Hi Joe, I have a 2016 IS300H Advance and am thinking about updating the sat nav. As you have done this, can you provide a step by step idiots guide as to how to do this? I am not thick, just struggle with all things to do with updating computer systems. Thanks.
  14. Never really been happy with the headlights on my IS 300H Advance. The light is nowhere near as good as on my previous car, a SAAB 9-3 Ttid Aero.
