  1. I have been looking at fitting these as a DRL option. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for the info. The RX82 seems like a sensible option, leaves most of the dash alone and just gives the option for a second screen. There are plenty of cheap, double din, android devices available that I can customize and configure how I want them. The Tesla style screen is a bit of an unknown but I do like it!

  3. Some of you may be interested to know, I have recently spotted a Tesla style screen, stereo upgrade for the 2003-2009 gen 2 that looks like it may actually work with the Mark Levinson sound system as fitted to some RX models. Looks like an import from China at a cost of around £550 but I think it looks amazing. I really want one of these so if anyone here has any more info on this, like a UK stockist who can tell me if it definitely works with the ML Sound system, please let know!

  4. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132597305839 Just found this on ebay. Hope it helps. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. Hi Joerx, mine is the SE-L model with air suspension so has the sensors on every wheel. If yours is on standard springs and shocks, it will be the SE model. I think the SE had the one sensor or maybe 2. One is on the O/S/R wheel and possibly one on the N/S/F wheel. These sensors will control you self leveling headlamps. I bought the sensor on it's own but a quick search on ebay and you should find the link rod. If you can get a sensor with the rod fitted, fitting is a damn sight easier!

  6. **Update** move over Mark Levinson, Ian Inchley is in the house!! I managed to run a multimeter across the original Mark Levinson 6x9 speaker and got a reading of 7ohms. Using this knowledge I bought some 8ohm 200w Blow 6.5" woofers from Amazon for about £11 each and can confirm the sound quality is out of this world!! I am convinced I have successfully improved on the original sound for a mere £22 total!!! So happy with the result!! Mark is sacked and I'm hunting for his job!! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. Mine has done the same. I would be interested to find out if anyone gets a successful warranty claim so I can try with my local dealer! My local dealer consists of a bunch of a$$ hats with multiple brands so don't want to try without someone having some level of success so I have something to throw at them!!

  8. What was removed and what was fitted in their place! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. I would imagine so but be careful as there are a lot of trim differences between the 2. The 400 generally had silver inserts where most 300 models had wood trim etc. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. Beautiful car! I do like these but must admit, I'm not a fan of the price tag! I would need to sell a few more tyres to afford one. I really didn't like driving the shape after mine as it just felt bland and wasn't expecting to like the new one but drove one a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with the Lexus brand again!

  11. Just wipe a little bit of grease around the rubber. It may just have gone dry. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. I do also on occasion have rock music playing through them! A bit of Kansas, Queen, Metallica, Nirvana, the Eagles etc. I love all types of music but it's the progressive nature of electronic music that takes me on a journey!! I do tend to listen to different genres of music depending upon my mood. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you very much!! If it's not loud, it's not worth listening to!! The Mark Levinson setup always sounded half decent for this type of music but I felt it was lacking bass so thinking about using 6.5" house speaker woofers in the doors if they turn out to be 8 ohm...

  14. Hi Herbie, no markings, just a part number that I can look up online and get conflicting information about. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. So I spent most of the afternoon yesterday replacing the N/S door mirror on my 2004 Lexus Rx300 that was booted off by some p!$$ head a few weeks ago and decided that while I had the door card off, now was a good time to replace the blown Mark Levinson front door speakers that have been farting at me for months thanks to my love of rather loud dance music. I already had backing plates to change the speaker size to 6.5" as there are some much better quality low wattage speakers available in that size to go with a standard head unit, modified the wiring to suit the new speakers, put everything back together and she sounded absolutely amazing! ...for about 10 minutes... Just as I pulled up to my workshop, feeling rather pleased with myself, a bass drop happened in the JFK PaSSion set I was streaming and my drivers door speaker started making a horrendous noise with smoke bellowing out of it!!! So my question is, before I spend even more money on speakers, does anyone know the specs of the original ML door speakers, what wattage and resistance they are so I can replace with something as close to the originals as possible. I think I read somewhere that the ML setup is 8 ohm, I used 4 ohm speakers as almost all car stereo setups are 4 ohm so maybe this is the problem. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
