  1. Hi All Does anyone know how to check software or firmware levels on the 63 plate IS300H premier model? As part of buying a approved used car I wanted them to update this if out of date but the reply I got was a bit vague, be good to know how I can verify myself if its not the latest version 🙂
  2. I've always been a fan of Goodyear EfficientGrip, good road holding and the quietest tyres i've used, not sure about lifespan however.
  3. Yep the passenger side was the worse, if the photo was taken from the passenger side I think it would show the full extent, however i'm pretty confident in Lexus that they will sort out to a good standard 🙂
  4. 62k miles, my concern is in the middle photo it almost looks like the thread is damaged / coming out, hopefully I'm wrong. Edit - Salesperson advised the trim repairer has had a look and they need to take the seats away to do a more thorough job, I'm happy with this approach and feel a bit better that its not just a quick touch up, should be repaired next Tues and i've asked for photos of the repair, I feel like the repair will be to a good standard so fingers crossed 🙂
  5. Thank you all for the replies, it is a mobile repairer coming in from what i've heard, I've asked salesperson to send me before/after photos, hes taken some before ones, will get after ones today/tomorrow once repair done: I feel like it looked worse in person, what do you guys think?
  6. Hi All I test drove a 63 plate IS300H Premier model and was very happy with the car, I noticed the front passenger and driver seat bolsters were in quite bad condition, it hadnt been prepped however and I was told it would be sorted to a Lexus standard and I'm seeing the car in its worst possible state so I went ahead and paid the deposit, I am picking up the car this weekend and will pay the remaining balance. My question is has anyone been in a similar scenario and if so, what have the quality of the upholstery repairs have been? I've heard lots of good things about Lexus dealers and am slightly concerned I've got a bit carried away relying on their word and the seats will not be in great condition when I go in, it sounds like they are just getting a mobile repairer to come in and touch up :(

  8. If no spare wheel and you didn't have the can for some reason would breakdown cover recover you to a tyre place normally?
  9. Looks like ACC was standard from 2017 onwards, I saw a 2017 advanced spec model (with acc) Vs the 2014 premier I put a deposit down on, was £2.3k more. With premier looks like I'm gaining mark Levinson and memory seats, I do want good audio so hopefully I've made the right choice sticking with the older premier.
  10. I've got the Anker Roav, it's USB but it comes with the 12v to USB adapter. Is there such a thing as a fuse to a 12v cig socket adapter? Then I'm thinking I can use any dashcam in the future as I may change mine soon. I had a Google but nothing comes up, potentially not using the right terminology..
  11. I know there's one cig socket under armrest, where is the other one located? I assume power turns off once you turn car off.
  12. Hi All On my current E class I have a cig socket in the glovebox, this made it easy to install the dashcam myself and route the wiring, i've not picked up the new IS300 yet (63 plate) but was wondering, how have you guys got your ones connected? If theres a USB socket or cig socket in the glovebox I'd be sorted..
  13. Hi All I have gone for a 63 plate IS300H premier and the person I had spoke to at the time thought it does have ACC but he'd check, after the test drive I was quite keen on the car and all the gadgets so forgot about the ACC side of things, it looks like the car does not have ACC, its from a dealer and I've paid roughly £14.3k for a premier with 62k on the clock, the price seems pretty decent. I'm guessing a car with ACC would have been much more, my question how does the ACC work on these cars, does the car fully start and stop with traffic or is it only when your travelling over 30mph for example? Thanks 🙂
