  1. Hi. If you scroll down the pages past all the models you will see a section Cars For Sale.
  2. When I got my 1st Lexus I was actually after the GS300h. I was impressed by it greatly. I then tested the IS300h and too I was greatly impressed. I left the choice to my daughter and grandson and baby chair. I was gobsmacked they preferred it in the IS, in the rear by the way. So I ended up with the IS. Neither was quieter than the other. Both top spec cars. It's down to if you want a bigger car or not.
  3. Way hey Barry riding motorbikes fast back in the very early days lol. I too rode very fast in the 80's hence the name given me MadVlad. Yes the RX is a big heavy car but my truck is bigger and heavier and my brakes need changing yearly coz of the mileage but they work very well indeed just like the brakes on the F sport I had (yes I miss it) and I drove that fast too lol. As I suggested clean your pads of glaze and the discs with a solvent cleaner. Flush out the brake fluid and renew with fresh fluid. You should then have good brakes that Work.
  4. Perhaps you can remove the pads and see if they are shiny/glazed. You could roughen them up with abrasive paper and even clean the discs up. You should see a marked improvement in braking.
  5. Years ago as part of an alarm system I would have two very loud sirens inside the car as well as the alarms own siren. Any would be tealeaf would be permanently deafened. Maybe an external siren or 2 under the car set to go off when a tilt sensor triggered. I'd have thought 120db would soon make a tealeaf scarper.
  6. Excellent thread lexusmoon. Well done to you in being brave enough and successful in your upgrade.
  7. If you only want DAB then it's simple. There are a number of units available that transmit DAB signals over FM which your radio will pick up. There are posts on here and there is one in particular which is highly recommended. Can't remember which thread it is but take a look as it also states how to Introduce Bluetooth streaming.
  8. Blimey. A 2.3 million miler here in blighty? I'm a lover of V8's and I'm happily blown away that Toyota produced one of the very best engines. I remember the LS400 being released and a length ways cut in half car showing its internals.
  9. As the title states. Hope you all enjoy reading this article. The Million-Mile Lexus.url
  10. Glad you found the 'notch' Ken. As for the vibration thing I'm at a loss. I've had 2 300h cars and I've no recollection of those or any vibrations in my cars. Since you've only had the car a very short time I'd contact the dealer you got it from as it'd be in a warranty so they should investigate it.
  11. Ooooops sorry Barry my bad. So you have a 3rd gen RX450H with ML. I had a 3rd gen 450h f sport with ML and I could play anything thru my speakers via bluetooth or line in. Does the bluetooth work in your car? Have you connected your phone for instance? But you can't connect your tomtom via bluetooth? If a phone connects then the tomtom has a fault. Check these points out before seeing a car hifi shop.
  12. Having just watched the video for the io player I'm wondering which RX you have Brian. I'm going to assume the 300/400h model as they have a Bluetooth but not one you can stream music thru. However if I'm right regarding your car then it's easy. There are a couple of threads on here on streaming music thru Bluetooth. There's a piece of kit available that you have to plug in to the rear of the radio unit. Browse the forum and you should find the threads I'm on about. Once done then using something like the io player then your question is answered.
