  1. Crest Motorsport do a manual conversion kit using the J160 gearbox from the IS200 and an adaptor plate 🙂 https://crestmotorsportnw.co.uk/products/is300-manual-conversion-j160?_pos=1&_sid=5d19c5f5b&_ss=r
  2. Crest motorsport have a manual swap kit for the IS300 (J160 gearbox and bell housing adaptor) so I'll be doing that eventually 🙂 Gotta find myself a decent IS300 first. Hopefully someone here will upgrade to a newer Lexus and part ways with their well-looked after example 😄
  3. Well, you guys and a couple of others have done it... all convinced me. I'm currently saving for an IS300. Going to start the search in the new year.
  4. Today, I went back to the stock manifold after CEL issues. I will not be going back to it 😄
  5. Don't get me wrong, the sound is fine, but the volume is ridiculous. I hope the HKS exhaust will keep it as quiet as I want it. The problem is, it's £500 and doesn't even include a resonator 😞 Hopefully the Japspeed resonator won't cause an issue and the HKS muffler will quieten it down a lot.
  6. I've been looking but there's only one for sale on AT atm with 128k. I'd rather a lower mileage car if possible. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202009083481685?model=IS 300&radius=1500&make=LEXUS&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&postcode=bs482qx&sort=price-asc&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1
  7. So... I've ended up with a FULL Japspeed system. Decat manifold, sports cat and cat back. It's WAY too loud. Does anyone know which would be best out of the following to quieten it down a bit? HKS Silent Hi-Power Cobra Sport (Resonated) Thanks 🙂
  8. I would agree, but the automatic gearbox is holding me back. A manual to me is just an absolute must to enjoy the car fully. I think I'll head down the supercharged route with a 145mm pulley.
  9. STOP IT! I just decided to *keep my 200 and now you're forcing me back into temptation mode 😄
  10. I'm not surprised, it's practically the same car LOL
  11. I already sorted it by replacing the main cat and rear o2 sensor 🙂 Everything seems to be fine now!
  12. There's a nice on on AT at the moment, https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202009053348638?onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&postcode=bs482qx&radius=1500&sort=price-asc&model=IS 300&make=LEXUS&page=1 Good luck with your search!
  13. I know. I also have the Japspeed cat back and the sports cat. It's TOO loud for everyday driving. I wish I'd have gotten the HKS Silent Hi-Power.
  14. It's just a generic brand, I suppose. This is the Japspeed exhaust: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAPSPEED-2-5-STAINLESS-SPORT-CATBACK-EXHAUST-SYSTEM-FOR-LEXUS-IS200-IS-200-XE10/162724223389?epid=13033615574&hash=item25e31e999d:g:phwAAOSwyv9fRm~X
  15. What is that COLOUR?! I wish my paint looked like that!
