  1. 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
  2. well said. And if it's reliability one is searching for I recommend Merc 190D...old school engines that easily do more than 500k... 😎
  3. 😁 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...
  4. 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. 😉
  5. I still drive a Lexus so... When I pay premium I like perfection, otherwise I would have bought a Toyota...
  6. q Indeed this is a very crappy system from Lexus. BMW is way ahead on this and some other small stuff like the parking sensor sound synced with the entertainment system sound... it's so stupid to have the parking sound always at same level...
  7. Hi there. I moved in August from an 2011 330d Coupé to the Lexus IS300h. The car has a very good drive, silent, etc. but it's not for car enthusiast. I really can't compare the pleasure of driving that BMW with this one. Actually my main driver to change to Lexus was maintenance costs (road tax, insurance, etc), try to help the little I can the environment and speeding... 😐 Got 5 points on my license so I had to change. One other thing to take into consideration is that actually despite the Lexus easy services they are very expensive and it's not easy to find proper mechanics for Lexus. I had very good Lithuanian garage here and they serviced my BMW perfectly! (of course this makes less sense for new cars as I bet BMW charges more for services) Apart from that I'm happy with Lexus and probably you are better served there in the UK than I'm in the main dealer is a complete crap! In regards to the foot operated parking, as I did with BMW I don't use the hand/foot brake...I just park the car in P and that's it!
  8. Thank you all. The trick of turning off the timer worked perfectly... Cheers, Bruno
  9. Thanks for the info...didn't know that and as I always put them on low level from start I woudn't know if they have the timer on or off then...I'll try that next time! Thanks for the tip!
  10. I'll try that of the timer next time I'm in the car...I believe mine is without the timer now anyway as it doesn't go off after 30 min driving...
  11. From which year is your car? I'm starting to be quite disappointed with Lexus as I see a lot of bugs like this corrected in following years without updating the previous versions...
  12. If I leave it on level 1 is not logical to go back to level 3 when I start the car old beemer would just keep the setting as it should...
  13. That's exactly my problem...the maximum level is insanely hot...
  14. Hi all, Does anyone have this "problem"? Basically if I don't turn off the seat heating when I turn on the car next time the heating starts on maximum (level 3), even if I turn the car off with heating on level 1. It's quite annoying as I don't enjoy maximum level and so this always catches me on surprise when I feel the heat. Thanks, Bruno
