  1. They only did the driver seat as the passenger seat was still in good shape but had no problem in doing both had they been the same.
  2. Went to Lexus who had a look and they confirmed the pads were exactly the same dimension as the OEM. They said that my current discs were concave (so difficult to see!) and hence only the centre part of the pads were making contact. With a few hundred miles of bedding in the new pads should mould to the discs and problem solved! :) Btw, great pads, definitely less dust and good grip, even with 3/4 contact! :D
  3. Just brought a pair of hawks ceramics pads HB616Z.607 and had them fitted. Still bedding them in after a week. Do you know if they're the same size as the brembos as I'm noticing the pads are gripping only 3/4 of the discs as there a rust rings on the outer edges (top and bottom). As the pads bed in will it eventually fill out to cover the whole disc?
  4. Tried the hairdryer treatment, it works but only lasted two seatings then reverted back to its original saggy look. Took it to Lexus and a big thankyou as they refitted the entire seat under warranty without any quibbles. They simply took a picture, sent it to Lexus headquarters, once approved the seat was redone and looking like new within a few days. They said that the stitching on the sides (deep within the seat) had come loose. I recommend you all do it before the 3 years warranty expires! :) Seat before it was done...
  5. Price quoted by Lexus Sheffield, winter tyres for the IS-F: Front: £304.35 each Rear: £325.60 each incl VAT and fitted.... ouch! Even the manager said don't bother, leave the car in the garage! :)
  6. Hi, Thanks for the advice so far. My seats looks like yours only after 17000 miles! Should I just accept this 'sagging' or is it the cushion below and worth persuing under warranty? I'll give the hairdryer treatment a go and let you know.
  7. Hi, Sorry if this topic has been discussed before but has anyone found the is-f front seats not very durable? I've found the bit where you sit on looking 'saggy' instead of that tight look. Can we claim it under warranty? Btw, I'm not particularly of heavy build if you know what I mean so think its more of a design flaw than anything else! Will
