    Automatic Lights

    Ok I understand thanks a lot! I was concerned because we are used to switch on the one closest to the grille on the image I attached previously (is it the dipped? im not sure what it is called) just before sunset or after sunrise. I assumed that they will operate in the same manner by the auto function !

    Automatic Lights

    I apologise but I'm used to different terminologies! it's the one with the green symbol on the cluster not the blue one. That's the only light that works. I meant that the bulbs closest to the radiator grille never operate under auto function on their own, they only operate with the main beams (most lateral). And yes, only when the car thinks it is dark enough, it switches them on both together as in the photo (i had fogs on not related to the question).
  4. Hey all, I was wondering whether the automatic headlight setting should only switch on the main beams. In my case, it does not switch on the low beams. Is this how it actually works or does my car have an issue?
  5. I know this is an old thread, but I have one question. I have a 2010 F-sport IS220d. It has the lexus engraved door sills, however they are not illuminated. On the brochure they are said to be illuminated. Any ideas?

    Xenons

    I know this is an old thread but I need some help regarding my headlights (attached). So i have a 2010 IS220d F sport, with HIDs auto levelling and AFS (no DRL). Do yours have these functions? As i've been interested in installing the facelift headlights but been told that they do not come with AFS and auto levelling and this will result in a fault. When I contacted lexus UK through ebay store they said they don't know as they hadn't been tested on previous models.

    Pressure washer

    To my knowledge, the paint wasn't fresh. I imported the car from the UK. It arrived in Malta late July 2017. I applied SRP when it arrived and in December, but there were no stone chips. Also if it didn't even correct/mask the very light swirls, I don't think that SRP would cover the stone chips or make them less obvious. Having said this, I might be wrong!

    Pressure washer

    I believe that in my case, the pressure washer removed the touch up paint I had. I'm not sure, and I might be wrong. But I'm sure that I've never seen the chips before, and I hand wash my car weekly, so I should have noticed them.

    Supagard v Autoglym

    Hey sorry for the late reply. I don't know whether the previous owners did go through the clear coat or not, but I'm absolutely sure i did not. I only used SRP on it. Also, i do not believe it is dirt, as i had cleaned the vehicle before hand, and also clayed it. I will look into the Britemax Black. Thanks for the advice. Where I live (Malta) it has became very common to do a paint correction and get the car ceramic coated. A 3 stage paint correction would cost me 240 euro (211 pounds) which I think is quite reasonable, as he would also remove some paint chips I have on the bonnet.

    Supagard v Autoglym

    Hi! Yes I've heard it is a glaze, however I've noticed paint transfer on a white cotton cloth when applying. I apply it by hand using a cotton cloth and buff with a microfibre cloth, on which i've also noticed paint transfer. My car is velvet black (not metallic, just gloss, code 212). So what polish do you suggest?

    Alcantra Centres Need Cleaning

    I use autoglym interior cleaner. On areas which are quite dirty, the alcantara looks shiny so to speak. Autoglym did not work, but I'm afraid I'd ruin the alcantara if I try other products.

    Supagard v Autoglym

    I've purchased a 2010 IS220D last August. It has a lot of swirl marks... Autoglym Super Resin Polish did not remove them. Any idea what I should use? Used SRP twice, and waxed twice.

    Pressure washer

    I would not use I power washer. although it might prevent swirls on a filthy car... This weekend I've washed my car, and for the first time i've used a pressure washer. Although I kept distance, i discovered a lot of new paint chips. even on the door. So depressing
  14. Hi! I have a late 2010 IS220D F Sport which comes with electric seat adjustments. The passenger side works as it should and is very quiet. The driver's seat also works well, but when I slide it backwards it is quite noisy - not a squeal but the motor sounds a lot relative to all other movements. The forward movement is very quiet, and I believe its the same motor working in the opposite direction. Any suggestions?
  15. HI all, I know this is an old post, but I'm relatively new here. I have a late 2010 IS220d F sport - The one without DRLs, and with the horizontal F-sport badge, prior to face lift. Where is the nut at the rear end of the car for adjusting? I was wondering if anyone has ever attempted to change the headlamps with AFS to the later model (2011 onwards) with DRL. IMO DRLs look amazing.. do they fit? Thanks in advance
