  1. Hi mate! It's a small world!! If you've listened to any of the YouTube clips then two of them are mine with my car pre-modifications! The H&S was the first thing I did on mine, a week after I bought it. Are you back at work now, would be happy to arrange a meet so you can hear the exhaust in the flesh, sounds so much nicer than in the videos 😍
  2. Unfathomable rattle through the wheel over cobblestones and rumble strips, like when your drop links go on your e36 and e46 BMWs. Small amounts of play detected in the rack, rack ends, track rod ends and stab links but all "within tolerances". Starting from the outside and working my way in with the rack last. Let's see which it is 🙄🙄🙄🙄. £1k to do everything up to the rack at Lexus, £500 at and Indy. Rack is a last resort but tbh, the amount of smiles per mile I've had in 3 years is well worth a small amount of cost. I'd have normally lost double the amount every year swapping cars out. Totally happy where I am.
  3. Hi mate, I'm in Hitchin and would gladly oblige but mine is so far from stock you'd have no idea what a stock one actually rides like from being in mine. Having owned many performance BMWs and Mercedes as well as Mk4 and Mk5 R32 Golfs what I can tell you is that the ISF on stock suspension is no worse than any of the usual suspects. Before I went to Airlift I had Tein Springs in stock 2009 dampers and the ride was significantly smoother. A mere £300 to make the change. Yes, there are a few issues emerging with age but for what you can buy one for, even if you factor in the cost of the preventative work, they are still a very cheap and highly reliable ride. Good luck with the hunt 😁
  4. Soooooo..... Should I be asking for a different part to be fitted or does my invoice show the right part number? Read the above twice now and I'm still not sure 😂😂😂
  5. For those who are interested, this is my quote for the preventative work. Assume your 15% gold member discount off the parts so about £50 off the total.
  6. Getting mine done ASAP as a precaution mate. Mine is 2009 and just over 85k on it. Had my ATF changed earlier this year and no signs of contamination but I'd rather be safe than sorry and for £500 - £600 it's a better priced option than the alternative.
  7. Ask the man Twellsie, it also comes with downsides for those of us who are not "track only".... ie. all of us.
  8. What a nightmare. My car is a 2009 approaching 90k miles so have contacted Lexus today to inquire about doing the preventative work and having the rad/transmission cooler replaced plus any likely ancillary parts. Had my ATF replaced earlier this year and all was clean and uncontaminated so I'm hopeful the problem had not yet started on mine. Awaiting the quote but I'll be sure to share it on here once I get it so those of us awaiting this time bomb have an idea of what it might cost to prevent it before it happens. Dan.
