  1. Bit of a longshot here, but does anyone have a broken luggage cover/blind they want to sell? I have a 2007 RX and whilst removing the luggage cover to go to the tip with rubbish, the offside plastic end cap became detached and I managed to throw it away with the rubbish! The cover still fits in, but rattles and doesnt retract, not the end of the world but Lexus only sells them complete, which isnt going to happen.
  2. Again, wrong. Costco are supplied from Navigator (Greenergy) and they add there own additives at the forecourt. The premium diesel is as good as anyone else's, and thats the only diesel they supply. Premium unleaded is the same. I use Costco normal unleaded in my 400h which is more than enough.
  3. Wrong. Maybe the Asda trailer is on a dedicated contract, but will still fill up at the likes of Navigator Terminals which supplies most of the branded fuels. A lot of companies includint he one I work for now have a white fleet, that deliver to various forecourts. To be fair, Shell V Power does have its own dedicated arm at the terminal, the rest just have varying amounts of additive injected in to their own recipes as we load. The base fuel is all the same.
  4. You would think they would have used a plug in battery saver to keep all the settings, got mine changed and no difference ay all.
  5. Yes, just register your car on and my Lexus IS on the far right of the menu bar. its really handy.
  6. I bought mine 3 months ago from a used car dealer near Manchester who gets a few in direct from Lexus Bolton, I think. Its a 2007 model which has the newer Nav and dvd player. Its an SR model and was looking for a SE-L, but the newer SE-L they had was tatty and had more miles on it. Mine had 84k with a full Lexus history which will now end as I use a local garage for servicing. Since purchase I have put two new rear tyres on, replaced the navigation display (centre of the touch screen was unresponsive, so check before buying, I didn't!), got a new nav disc, purchased a luggage cover (these tend to disappear from used vehicles and are expensive second hand) and today have replaced the reversing camera which was working but the image on the screen wasn't the best. Fortunately, mine has had the 10 year service just 1500 miles before I bought it, and water pump, cambelt etc was done already. You can also check on my lexus what has been done to the car since new at the dealership. Found that mine had a replacement gearbox at 39k. Next purchase will be a Grom Vline to upgrade the ML entertainment. Its a fantastic car to drive, quiet, smooth and economy during normal use, commute etc hovers around the 30 mark.
  7. Hi Steve, Yes thats correct, I didnt pay duty on the Lithuania part but got stung £44 for the luggage cover. The camera is a bit cheaper though. Just got to be careful with part numbers, as mine is a 2007, there are less bits about. Saying that, the nav screen was much cheaper than the older ones.
  8. So far since I purchased my RX400h, I have bought a luggage cover from Philadelphia, USA, a Navigation Screen from Lithuania and now have a reverse camera on its way from Chicago. At least the customs are making some money out of me.
  9. You are right in saying that the fuel comes from the same tanks at the terminal, however, different companies use less quantities of additive which is injected into the line as we fill the tanker. The supermarkets use less additive.
  10. Wanted.

    Mine did! This is the one I bought.
  11. Yes, there are spring loaded bits at the door end. Looks like I was lucky then.
