  1. @lexusmoon or @Inazone can any of you share the mounting instructions so I can evaluate if I can do it myself? 🙂
  2. Anyone know how to lock the car after disconnecting the battery or should I lock the car with the trunk open, disconnect the battery and then close the trunk? Also, can I open the trunk with the key after returning home in order to reconnect the battery? Thank you all, Bruno
  3. It's just my opinion and not because its6an hybrid. I did this in all my automatic cars. What's the difference in effort between putting the car in park mode or neutral plus hand brake?
  4. I never use neutral. When I stop and stay in the car I either leave the car in normal with brakes on or Park mode. In automatic cars Neutral should be only used very rarely and in specific situations like the car behing pulled.
  5. I do every day a journey of 20 miles to work (40 miles total) with highway for most of the time (engine working). I believe my battery it's already at the end of life and probably it will have to be replaced at the anual maintenance in October, but till then I wanted this one to last... 🙂 it was working fine (2 weeks was not enough to have issues starting the car). Now it seems that 2 weeks is already too much so I'll just hope it doesn't get completely drained in 3 weeks so when I return at least I don't have to reset windows, etc... 🙂
  6. Many thanks for the reply. Not sure what to do here. What exactly is needed to reset windows, power locks etc as I know that when I return from my trip one way or the other the battery will be gone? 🙂
  7. Unfortunately I live in a estate with underground parking but no access to electricity plugs. Is there any option for portable battery maintenance? Something like the boost device I have but to keep battery loaded for a few weeks? Many thanks guys, Bruno
  8. Writing here so I don't create a new post about the same topic. Any idea on how to manage this when you have no electricity plug available to connect a maintenance battery to the car? I have a portable remote charger boost which I used today after the car was parked for 15 days and had not enough battery charge to start properly. Soon I'll be 3 weeks away and wanted to avoid the battery to be completely empty when back. thanks, Bruno
  9. Since I can't find any used or aftermarket option to fix this and Lexus wants more than 160eur to fit this in, I was thinking to buy the aftermarket carbon fiber ones which cost me less than 80eur from China. Does anyone fit these in an IS300h or GS or CT? Thanks, Bruno
  10. Hi all, Do you know any online shop (or physical in Ireland) that sells mirror covers (just the plastic)? I've just broken it against a garbage bin and I was trying to avoid Lexus due to their insane prices. I'm still waiting for a quote from them, but I suppose I will not like the numbers. Thanks in advance, Bruno
  11. well said. And if it's reliability one is searching for I recommend Merc 190D...old school engines that easily do more than 500k... 😎
  12. 😁 Perfection is subjective yes, but what we are discussing here is simple stuff...for example never had any issue with cold/hot air in my old VW EOS, built 10 years before than my lexus...
  13. You missed my point. I paid premium for a Lexus. Toyota has the same level of reliability with much lower cost. Of course I would expect that every single detail in a Lexus was perfect. I wouldn't care much if the same happened in a Toyota as my standards would be lower. 😉
