  1. I recall reading somewhere that the 'F sport' models had a differert lock to lock turn count of the steering wheel to regular models, shoot me down if I am wrong but I don't think I drempt it!
  2. Might be nice if you could spare the time and do a write up on here on how to solve that problem you had ( as I'm sure you will not be the only one to have suffered from it) and help any future owners if they do a search for the problem. also not really advisable to put your personal phone number ( if it is, as opposed to business no) on an open forum! paul m
  3. Is there anything you can interrogate via Techstream, like a PS Ecu or view the parameters of the steering geometry?
  4. Can’t see the screen being available as a spare part from Lexus, only really want to sell a complete display at £££££’s.
  5. I always leave a window open when working on vehicle electrics, especially when swapping/charging batteries. paul m
  6. like this https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=Aluminum+14+Flutes+Oil+Filter+Wrench+Cap+Tool+Remover+Wrench+for+Toyota+Lexus+UK
  7. For info Here's a thread that I posted a while ago when I had VSC problems.
  8. If it’s an iPhone then It won’t transfer contacts over Bluetooth. I tried a long time ago, failed, did a search and then gave up.
  9. If it is the original OEM Blacktop Panasonic battery then it probably has had its day and these symptoms are a sign that it is about to fail completely, pics of OEM battery in link I posted above. Best sort it soon as it may let you down at the most awkward time. paul m
  10. Panasonic was the oem supplier but these were not available in Europe.
  11. That document pack seems a bit pricey to me so bide your time if you want a hard copy and refer to the ‘e’ copy for now but if you play around with the sat nav you can’t really break anything!
  12. I ( along with others) reccomend the Bosch S4 026 (068), largest battery that will physically fit in tray ( keeping plastic jacket and temp sensor in place) with correct terminal orientation. Right now is gonna cost £88.54 at ECP. Check this lengthy informative thread here, https://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/107731-best-12v-battery-for-is250/#comment paul m.
  13. Check the Grom website and YouTube channel also the thread here. https://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/116763-vline-vl2-install/ And yes ( I thought) it was easy to fit, after watching others dismantle their 250 dash on YouTube.
  14. I think so, expensive but does what I wanted it to do, ie latest music streaming without any ‘wires’ and keeping dash looking OEM. I personally now have available, Spotify with voice control of search google maps netflix, I player, 4OD etc plus lots more toys that I’ll prob never use also apple car play if that’s for you
