  1. Newbie

    Welcome look forward to seeing you in the good section (my opinion) is200/300
  2. Welcome my is300 is the same colour green, no modding experience so sorry no help there
  3. Hope someone takes it and spends the time and money on it. Like people have said very well build, the bits in mine that need sorting are down to previous owners not replacing things properly and that last owner not making any effort. See a lot of 200s out and about but still yet to see another 300 in the real world, even though on paper I think they outnumber the 200s.... just
  4. Oil Capacity

    Just in case anyone needs the info its in the back of the owners manual for both is200 an is300. Added whole page as the coolant is also important to note
  5. is200 Condensation in the car!

    Issue 2) does it condense on the windows on sunny days as well? I’ve found in the past having to leave sunroof cracked so it ‘escapes’ and in the summer leaving windows and sunroof open to get it as dried out as possible. And in winter trying to get the least amount of water in. If you are drying the windows make sure all cloths and tissue etc are not left in the car as will add to humidity as well, (my 306 taught me a lot about condensation, especially in winter with frost on the inside) although it got a lot better after a good summer, which I appreciate is a way off
  6. Noisy at tickover. Any thoughts?

    When were you belts changed last. I picked up mine recently on 110k and it wasn’t quite as noisy as that but was a lot of vibration especially under the vvt I cover. Now all belts and everything replaced it’s so much quieter, Only a thought
  7. Gold membership pack not received

    Much appreciated, thankyou
  8. Afternoon apologies for putting this here but I cannot get the contact us section to work. I signed up to the gold on jan 14th but haven’t received anything through the post yet please advise?
  9. So amp out, take off glove box completely ( not like me who leant on it whilst dangling and snapped a hinge) I took off the bottom side plastic plate, covering fuse box, screwed on at back and clips down door frame side nut at top of amp holding bracket and one under glove box area holding other bracket 10mm hex. then top and bottom brackets have 2 screws each, 8mm (hex) and then both are zip tied to a thick wire loom. it is clearly mounted before anything else goes in so doesn’t have a natural out but got it out through the bottom carefully as there are a lot of wires that are tightly mounted, wish id taken more photos, but failed, shredded knuckles, and only photos are end cables and back of amp, the brackets were difficult to remove as at best was a quarter turn at a time and the top one has raised curved sides now to find the bypass cable EDIT, amplified bypass PC2-92-4, non amplified PC2-93-4
  10. Appreciate the replies, I’ll remove the amp next as I’ve found a bypass harness as both said. On the plus side my dash looks nicer even if I still have no music to listen too
  11. newbie saying hi

    Same query, signed up 14th jan, pack not yet arrived, tried to do the contact us section but the letters check at the bottom doesn’t work
  12. Is300, all belts changed, water pump changed, oil/filter changed, plus all sundry bits, purrs like a kitten, was a tad shaken on the drive belt area prior about £450 all in, I sourced all the parts, all the fluids etc, Very happy as Lexus wanted £500 just for changing the water pump and that’s without putting a new belt back on
  13. Before I start I have spent quite a few hours looking and reading posts, but most are old and photos no longer available and also many post were pre having 3rd party harnesses available, I’d prefer to avoid cutting and splicing ive removed the 6cd changer, got the new fascia, got a stereo, got everything I thought I needed and built and framed it etc, went to plug it in and no go. the plugs that are quoted and in the set I bought have 2 separate connections but only 1 come out of the back of the CD player and are all different shapes. I have read I may need to access the amp wiring but it’s pretty tight around the amp so will wait before having to remove if required photos, CD player back, cable plugs into right side socket then I assume through the dash behind the glove box to the amp, and other photo is the adapter kit I got which is the same as Halfords etc for a Lexus/Toyota loom does anyone have any guidance please?
  14. Will do, appreciate the replies. Next time for noises a videos would be best
  15. It had all the paperwork pointing to it being good, regular services at correct intervals. Tidy exterior and interior. Reasonable mileage, good price etc looking at many forums these are somewhat common faults and easy to rectify. Once belts are done it’ll be all good
