  1. Looks like it has some marks on the rear bumper and the number plate is wonky. That would need sorting for that kind of cash. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  2. Had grooved ones on a car I used to own. No real difference to be honest apart from the noise when braking from speed Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  3. Brembo disks and pads on eurocarparts come to £213. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  4. For the sake of a couple of hours work I'd save the few hundred quid and do it myself. Theres no way on earth I'd pay that kind of money. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  5. Gyeon tire express is superb and leaves a lovely natural finish. Autoglym tyre gel is good but can sling a bit if over applied. If you can make sure these go on a clean tyre they will last longer and regular topping up seems to help. Gyeon tire express on my Mazda a few weeks ago. A little goes a long way.

  6. Good shout on the battery. Replaced mine at about 12. One caliper and a water pump at 10 years which is common. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  7. The main issues are sticking calipers, water pump and look at the exhaust. As long as it's been serviced regularly preferably by Lexus it should serve you well. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. Good timing. Made up your mind as to what you will go for? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  9. I would call in2detailing up and ask about ceramics as the list is endless. Imran is the guy who runs it and is very knowledgeable and very helpful. I can list lots different ceramic coatings but he will know far more than me. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  10. In2detailing are stockest of moonlight. Normally very good service. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  11. Moonlight still needs a 6 hour cure time and cant get wet so its difficult this time of year. Personally I'd do a maintenance wash with a clay etc and use a very good sealant like the one I suggested or if you can keep it dry then a couple of layers of moonlight. Your options with ceramics are huge but I'd stick with ones from tac or gyeon as they are the market leaders. What used to be only available to professional detailers are now available to us and have become much more user friendly to use. Most ceramics tend to like toppers and moonlight can be used as one as well Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  12. There are so many options out there now for you to look at as the market has really come on leaps and bounds. Think the biggest issue you have right now is the weather and if you have a garage that you can work in, reason being most ceramics of any description need to be kept dry until cured. Is it a new car or just new to you? What car is it? I personally use Tac Systems Moonlight which would be classed as a light ceramic, but still has 25% si02 but is very easy to apply as it is oil based. It can be layered and would generally last 9-12 months. If I had garage space to apply I'd do 3 or 4 coats as it will really add to the thickness. I've found that unlike my Lexus which picked up stone chips my current car has hardly any and I'm putting that down to the ceramic. Obviously prep is key and this time of the year you may struggle getting anything ceramic based on due to them needing to cure, otherwise you will end up with water spotting. Gyeon Can Coat is another light ceramic and very easy to use but only 10% si02. The car will need to be clayed and IPA wipe down before application of any coating to aid it bonding correctly. If you are doing it inside a garage I'd recommend something like Carpro Essence as a polish as it will add massive gloss and is a primer for ceramics. Another option to maybe get you through winter would be Wowo's Crystal Sealant which is due to be released shortly as they have been relaunching the company. This is probably the strongest spray sealant outside of a ceramic and is multi use so can be used as a wheel sealant and also good on glass as a repellent. Think they relaunch on the 9th and I'm definitely getting more of this its brilliant stuff. This would easily see you through until spring time when the weather improves but as it's so strong it would need to be polished off. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  13. With respect his answer was correct. Like any mot centre the testers dont always check things which is why things like lights get through, it has little to nothing to do with the kits. If your happy to use them then do so it's your choice. It's just pointed out that its against the mot standards. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  14. Then I would suggest the computer industry is where that list of music stays [emoji6]. Its probably just a generation gap [emoji2960][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  15. I had the Mark Levinson in my old is250 and it did indeed sound very good. As you said did miss a bit of bass but more than made up for it for me with clarity. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
