  1. I have one fitted to mine which the previous owner purchased. It's a detachable one. I don't use it so I could sell it if you're interested?
  2. I am selling my 2009 Lexus IS250 SE-L 72K with Full Main Lexus Service History.
  3. I know when mine went into Lexus for its MOT & Service, they said that the bushes were fine.
  4. @Texas No nothing was picked up on the MOT and Service. I did ask them to full check the car. But they said that all the bushes etc are fine and there is no wear in them. One thing they did do was clean the throttle body because of carbon build up.
  5. I could be looking to sell my 2009 IS250 SE-L. if you're still interested?
  6. @johnatg Thanks for the information, John. As you have said it could be anything, its due to go in for its MOT & Service on the 3rd Jan with Lexus. I will get them to check it all over completely, as something is not right. I know on a Mini I had, that needed, Lower Control Arm Bushes, Track Rod Ends, Tie Rod Ends and Track Rod Arms. I sold the car before that needed doing at it was close to a grand in parts and labour. The car was only several hundred pounds more. Do you think any of that will be covered under warranty?
  7. It goes in for a service in January with Lexus, I will ask if they can take a look.
  8. Hi Paul, Tyre pressure is all okay, they were checked when the temp started to drop. Also checked last week when I filled up. Not mechanically loose, but when you move the steering, there is a delay as you say in the road to wheel action. I had similar issues with another car and it turned out to be the bushes. So I was just wondering if anyone has had similar issues.
  9. Evening, I am just wondering if anyone has had the same problem on their IS250. When I am driving the steering feels a little loose. I am thinking either the Control Arm Bushes or D Bushes. Has anyone else experienced this?
  10. Just reading through this, the car is working great. I understand that its a used car, so I don't expect it to be perfect. I spent a lot of time looking for the right car and decided that if I were to get one that I would be better getting it from the main dealer. Yes, that particular car may be a bit more than a private seller, but I also wanted one that had a full Lexus service history, so that I could check what had been done on the car, and have all the paperwork to account for any work that it had done. I also managed to get 12 months warranty with the car too, plus all the wheels refurbished, and all brand new tyres. Also, any issue I have had have been raised to the main dealers, with the matter being solved. The alternator was covered under warranty, but the battery was not.
  11. Car was booked in today and it was sorted. Battery and Alternator where replaced.
  12. Lexus £105 for a battey supplied and fitted. No bad considering the Bosch one is £95 on eBay. Plus any issues I can go back the dealer. I will let you know the outcome tomorrow.
