  1. I saw this DIY job on youtube. Looks like a lot of work.
  2. Its been 2 months since i replaced my flickering HID lights with OSRAM D4S ones and now the driver side is flickering again and cuts off after 5 seconds. Don't really want to be buying another set. There must be a fix for this. Anyone had this issue before, or found a fix. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks
  3. Thanks for all the reply, it’s made me more at ease now. Not looking to spend more money in a garage at this time of the year. Well I learnt something new today as well. White grease. 😊 Thanks to everyone for the help and input.
  4. Yes I just had a service at the garage recently, changed the engine oil. It is oily, but do you know why would it turn white. Thanks.
  5. Hi would appreciate if someone could help me identify what this is. Just noticed it this morning. It’s cold here in London. I popped my bonnet of my IS 250 to check screen wash level only to notice this white residue on the bonnet catch or lock. I am going on a long journey for the Christmas break, and am now worried about it. I thought it was a coolant leak and have checked that this is not the case. So I don’t know what it is. Thanks
  6. Thanks for this post. Very useful. I did a few upgrades to my IS 250 as well. Dipped Beam - OSRAM Intense Xenarc Cool Blue D4S Xenon HID 5500K for £30 ( Half the price of Osram Xenarc Cool Blue Intense D4S which is about £80 ) Side lights - OSRAM Cool Blue Intense T10 4000K for £6 Main Beam (High beam) - Found an OSRAM Cool Blue Boost HB3 5000K ( But these are not road legal and are only for off road use ) So i got the OSRAM Cool Blue Intense 42000K Engine oil - Castrol Magnatec 5W 30 A5 4 Litres - £22.75 ( Sale on ASDA - halfords charge £35 for them.)
  7. Hi, If this helps please read this thread :
  8. Headlights options

    More about road legal bulbs : What makes a bulb non-road legal? When it comes to the legality of halogen car bulbs, it is the Kelvin rating (K) that really matters. Any halogen bulb with a Kelvin rating over 4200K is not legal for road use, and should only be used off-road. This is because bulbs begin to produce a light with a slight blue tint when they reach a colour temperature of around 4200K. Blue bulbs are used by the emergency services and therefore need to stand out on the road against other drivers. If everyone had blue-tinted headlights, the emergency vehicles might struggle to be spotted by traffic which could potentially cause many problems.
  9. Headlights options

    I have now bought all the necessary bulbs after a bit of research online. Dipped Beam - OSRAM Intense Xenarc Cool Blue D4S Xenon HID 5500K for £30 ( Half the price of Osram Xenarc Cool Blue Intense D4S which is about £80 ) Side lights - OSRAM Cool Blue Intense 4000K for £6 Main Beam (High beam) - Found an OSRAM Cool Blue Boost HB3 5000K ( But these are not road legal and are only for off road use ) The reason most bulbs are 4200K are they are road legal, any higher then that, then they can only be used off road. So i got the OSRAM Cool Blue Intense 42000K Hope that helps
  10. Headlights options

    Hi, I am looking to change my bulbs too, as the left side projector light keeps flickering. So to be sure which bulbs i need to change could you please confirm these are right. High beam (Projector light) - HB3 bulb? Dipped beam (Projector light) - D4S HID bulb? Side light T10 - T10 bulb? Thanks
  11. Thanks for the info. So if it fails the test, i presume i have the change the whole plate and not just the bulb.
  12. Hi, Yes the interior lights are on, its just the drivers side is not lit up, whereas the passengers side works fine.
  13. Hi Everyone, Newbie here. Have a Lexus IS 250 - 07 Reg. Love the car. Recently noticed the drivers side Illuminated Blue Logo Door Sills are not working. I checked the front passenger side and its fine. How do i check and fix ? Any help is most appreciated. Cheers
  14. Hi, Could anyone recommend a good brake caliper painting service in London, as my wheel hubs are really rusty now. Or if anyone in the forum who does this service. And what would be the cost for 4 wheels. I found a few but they were not located in London. Cheers
