  1. Alpine were airbrushing their audio show cars back in the late 90's and American Low Riders were doing it decades before that!! Lexus should have said first from factory as people have been doing this for the best part of the last 60 years!! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. I have a 2003 RX300 that started doing a similar thing! I noticed a couple of years ago when driving down from IOM to Yeovil, after a couple of hours, the air con stopped blowing cold. It would leak out condensation all night then be fine the following day. Next time I took it to england, the drivers vents started blowing warmer than the passenger ones. Thought it may need a regas but the A/C clutch is still kicking in so indicating enough gas in system. Then one day when I left the car running, I noticed a loud grinding noise from the A/C compressor so unsure which way to go with it at the moment. Do I regas and potentially waste the money on having to have it done again once any other work is done or do I just bite the bullet and replace the compressor?? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. As much as the TT is a real pain in my *****! I am actually going to miss it this year!! U won't get to see any supercars in practice week, no Ramsey Sprint and as for the shenanigans of Mad Sunday... There are a lot of people and businesses who rely heavily on the TT to get them through the year but with the current state of affairs, needs must and it really is the right decision even if a disappointing one!

  4. Private sale! I bought it for £1k 3 years ago!! Low miles and ridiculously clean!! Right place, right time!! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. I don't hear my alarm go off at all for 50 weeks of the year, then the Isle of Man TT happens!! Every damn motorbike that goes past my house sets the bloody thing off!!! Thank god the TT has been cancelled this year! A bit of peace and quiet!! [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. I'm considering filling and spraying my dash as I want to change the horrible grey to black anyway, spray the wood effect silver to match the dash then replace the steering wheel and gear knob and completely lift the interior! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. I have been looking at fitting these as a DRL option. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. 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
  11. 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!

  12. **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
  13. 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!!

  14. What was removed and what was fitted in their place! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. 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
