  1. I did, I was told that because the car is being used as a taxi any warranty left was now withdrawn!! And that includes the hybrid system. Yet Toyota are only too happy to warranty a vehicle that I use as a taxi, there's no logic and sadly a lot of bad feeling on my part Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. O/s front edge of the chassis leg had excessive rust. Lexus rejected the claim as they felt it wasn't excessive. 6 months later it was an mot fail as it had perforated and was within a certain distance of a suspension mounting. It wasn't a difficult fix, tbh it has been done so well you wouldn't notice there had ever been a problem. But I had to pay for it myself Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Mine aren't, mine is the same size all round Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. I tend to get between 25-30,000 miles out of a set of tyres. However I rotate them after about 15000 miles. If I don't rotate them I am down to 20-25,000 and I found the fronts wear faster than the rears Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve had a bodywork warranty rejected, Lexus claimed it was not an issue but is later failed an mot on it and had to be repaired. Mechanically my IS has been faultless but that experience suited my feelings towards buying another Lexus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. If they are supposed to be replaced at 80K then I am on borrowed time at 155,000 miles!! It is one of my next jobs to do along with the drive belt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve never heard of one leaking, but there’s always a first for something. Did you replace the belt at the same time? I know 60k is early but whilst you have it all apart I wonder if it wasn’t good preventive maintenance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I would have the system leak checked, from there you can either recharge the system or replace whatever has caused the leak and regas Or if it is full then you know you are looking at a faulty component Mine today is lovely and cold, even with the car on eco setting Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Those bloody cup holders!! I know it may seem like a small point but I’ve lost count how many people complain about the location of them Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Taken from digitalradiochoice.com “A radio which can only receive DAB will not be able to receive DAB+ stations. However, DAB+ sets are ‘backwards-compatible’ and will receive both DAB and DAB+ stations.” Hope that helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Compounding with SRP will not remove the paint imperfections, that’s why many amateur detainees only use it as a finishing polish and not a compound. If you want to remove the scratches permanently with a machine then something like megs m105/205 or scholl S20 would be more effective Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m surprised by that, I’ve used it for over 30 years now and it’s always been a good product, it’s one of my go to filler polishes. Most expensive isn’t always better, I’ve paid out a lot in the past for products that claim to be better and they lack durability or finish. Maybe you had a bad bottle, who knows Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I did mine about 2 years ago now, I used silver smoothrite. It’s not a hard job, just a bit grubby and tedious cleaning it all but it does look good when finished Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Looks good, what paint did you use? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’ve not seen it in person but I’m guessing that it’s a cloth that has some kind of polish in it that has “filler” qualities. To be honest you would be better off washing and polishing the car with autoglym super resin polish, it will do the same thing but lasts and gives a nice shine as well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
