  1. I know it might sound silly but you did insert the disc the right way up ?
  2. Strange, as I have just clicked on the link and it took me straight there. AliExpress, Google Lexus IS250 SNCN LED .
  3. For those owners that don't have them but would like them but are put off by the huge cost of genuine Lexus ones, how about these from AliExpress. $35.70 dollars. Scroll down to the video and see them in the dark. The ones shown are inscribed Atenza but the Lexus logo is available, all in a choice of coloue illumination. For the money I think they are quite good but maybe a little less restrained than the genuine article. What say he collective ? Too bling ? https://tinyurl.com/y9bxdhpx
  4. Edited to add, how cold should the AC be ? Having not long had the car, I do wonder if the AC could benefit from a recharge.
  5. Bingo ! Just sat in the car with the AC on coldest setting and yes I can feel cool air coming from the back although as has been said, it is more noticeable when not actually pressing your back against them. Still, at least I now know there working. Thanks.
  6. I take it by your answers that there should be air blown out of the backrest as well as the seat. Strange that I don't feel it on either front seat and I would not have thought both seat backrest pores would be blocked when the seat bases are not. Further investigation called for methinks.
  7. I have ventilated seats on my IS250 SEL and although I can feel cool air through the base of the seat, I don't seem to feel anything through the backrest. Is this normal ? I would have thought it would be obvious to cool seat base and backrest.
  8. Tried this with the spare fob for my IS250. Walked up to the car and touched the door handle and got in and the car started. I assume if it did work, then I wouldn't be able to do either.
  9. I bought two front Pagid coated discs and a set of pads for my IS250 from ECP when they had a flash offer of 50% off, total cost £78.
  10. The F sport grill looks so much better to my eyes than the standard IS250 grill.
  11. Do the led puddle lights fade on and off like the ordinary bulbs ?

    Braking Issue

    I don't know if this helps but I had the same problem with my other car which is a VW Bora TDI. I bled the braking system a couple of times, always ensuring that the fluid exiting the calipers was clear of air but I could not get a hard pedal without pumping. That is until I discovered that the master cylinder had a bleed nipple as well. Fitted the bleed tube and opened it up and out gushed a load of bubbly fluid. Brakes have been fine ever since. Maybe your Lexus has a similar bleed nipple or maybe not but worth checking.
  13. If you buy an extended warranty, I presume that you are then locked into having it serviced (expensively) at a Lexus dealer? If extended for two years, then 2 services which could add a good few hundred to the equation..
  14. I think it's a high price given that it does not have the Multimedia system or the Mark Levinson installed.
  15. Re the sparkplug change. People forget that the schedule I think is 60k miles or 6 years which ever comes first. I bought my car from a Lexus dealer with just under 58000 miles and was sort thinking I would have to do them soon. Checking the service printouts that came with the car showed that the previous fastidious owner had had them changed at the 6 year mark so a bonus for me.
