  1. And the first sign of a downhill stretch get off the throttle and let the battery recharge Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I will be looking to run this until I get to about 200 K and then I will trade it in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Crikey, I do 25,000 in 6 months!! Just coming up on my first year with my 300h and it looks like I’ll be doing about 51,000 miles this year. I can get the back Tyres to last about 30k and the fronts 20k however I do chuck it into corners a bit hard so that would explain the fronts not lasting quite as long Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Check how much material is left on your pads, from experience when they get to be about 3/4 worn they start to emit the most awful intermittent screeching noise that lasts for about 50 miles Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Most of my driving is around town and I average between 45-47 mpg in the winter, 48-50 in the summer and 50+ on a long run (fast A roads or motorway) All with a/c on and econ mode Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. So the car went in 5th March for inspection and still Lexus haven’t made a decision on whether to repair or not. That’s now close to 6 weeks and in reality what I would consider poor customer service, I spent 15 years working in the trade on lesser brands and they were able to make decisions in hours normally or days if it was a little complicated. My expectations of Lexus now are low, if/when they reject the claim I will get the leg repaired to a good standard and then sell the car, as far as I’m concerned Lexus have lost me not only a a customer but as an advocate of their products Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Someone else will clarify this but I was under the impression that the camera was part of the premium nav package. If you are looking for the wiring for the amp you will need to remove the trim on the rhs of the boot, it's not difficult, just a little time consuming Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. From experience of trying to add other items to my 300h I would say that there will not be a loom there so you can just plug and play. The premium nav set up came with an amp as well that was hidden in the rights hand side rear wing, of there was any wiring that’s where it would be. Picking up a feed from the read doors does sound like a workable solution and there will be plenty of live feeds in the boot, the only thing you may have to run to the stereo is a remote switching lead so as the amp knows when the stereo is on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yes, a photo shop. Easy to do if you know how to use photo shop. Take a picture of the car with the Bonnet open, then the same picture with the Bonnet closed, crop the engine bay detail that you want in your finished picture, save it as a layer and then import that layer into the picture of the car with the Bonnet down. From there all you need to do is adjust the transparency level to allow the desired affect Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The air filter housing is situated on the drivers side of the car if you are right hand drive and passenger side if you are left hand drive, it’s a black box that’s approx 20cms square. Find the front of the air filter housing and look downwards, you will then see the chassis leg and inner wing, it is here that you will find the rust if you have any It’s not an underbonnet picture but if your looking in the area of the white circle then you are in the right place Hope that helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. All credit to Lexus Plymouth they are doing there best to help, however I'm not left with much optimism as they keep coming back to the fact that the car is used as a taxi and Lexus warranty doest cover commercial use. As part of the inspection they checked all the paint thicknesses and they are sure the car still has its original paint, that helps a lot in the claim. its a waiting game now, like I said earlier if it gets rejected then ill just do it myself.
  12. I have checked the passenger side and that is clear of rust, this issues only seems to be drivers side (rhd)
  13. Mine is the premium nav, but I was under the impression they all did it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Mines currently being inspected by Lexus Plymouth, they are going to report back to Lexus About having this done as a warranty claim. I’m guessing it will be a waiting game. I already have a plan for mine if the claim Is rejected, I’m guessing there’s a weekends work there to rectify that to the point where the rust is treated and won’t return easily, perversely I wouldn’t be fussed if they did reject to claim so I can do the job myself Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. finally had a chance to give the car a wash and polish this weekend. considering its now down 95,000 miles the paintwork isn't too shabby, although the front bumper will need repainting this year sometime. part of the reason I love Celestial Black is the way it reacts in the sun
