  1. Thanks found the bit I'm after is 53510-53090 - all ordered now
  2. My IS had developed a fault where the bonnet sometimes pops open at motorway speeds - I've played around with the latch and I think its just worn / weak as if I pull upwards enough on the bonnet the latch just pops open. Changing the latch looks easy enough, but I cant find the part number to order a new one - can anyone point me in the direction of somewhere I can find the part numbers - would prefer to not ask my nearest dealer as its a bit of a trek and past experience has not been great
  3. Thanks for the suggestions - I'm going with the CD slot mount. I use my phone for google maps in the car, the standard nav is pretty poor - usually tells me there is traffic when I'm already stuck in it!
  4. I'm just coming up to 170K with no major issues, in fact the only repairs outside of servicing / consumables have been a bonnet latch, and an auto wiper sensor
  5. Looking for a phone holder / mount for the IS. Would like something that fits down by the heated seat buttons - any suggestions?
  6. Warmer weather has made quite a big difference. I did Southampton to Bristol last week - mixture of stop start traffic and fast motorway, air con on My usual commute is 14 miles, but mostly uphill on the way, down on the way back - usually just above 50 in the morning and 60+ in the afternoon
  7. I cant comment on the UX, but I had a CT200h which was keen to rev, but am now in an IS300h. The IS accelerates a lot more quickly with less revs. Unless I really mash it there is rarely need to exceed 2.5K so I think this will be similar to your ES experience unless you have a very heavy foot
  8. If its an Executive then its the 6 speaker. I came out of a CT200h with the premium system and I was a little surprised how lacking the IS system is
  9. I sold my CT at 150K, but it had been needing a top up between services since I bought it at 100K. When it dropped to the min mark I would add 1 ltr and that was enough to get through to the next service, so I guess it was using 2 ltrs every 10K. It was pretty consistent and never got any worse in the 50K I drove it

  11. Yep same in our house - Lexus recovery has had to flat bed the Mrs Merc so its been well worth the money
  12. @Rayaans I couldnt see essential care for the IS300h on the website - what are they charging for full / intermediate?
  13. The warmer weathers giving a massive improvement to my MPG
  14. Yep, I have the same. Only place I'm noticing it is in a stretch of roadworks sat at 50, and every so often it feels a bit like there is more resistance to make a slight adjustment. I thought it was the camber of the road at first, but its not always in the same part of the roadworks
