  1. Hello everyone, Yes it's been an awful long time since I posted anything on this forum, but with a new GS 450h F Sport on the way, I need a little info. Am I the only new GS owner that isn't really keen on the front splitter on the new GS. I've found the corner splitter parts on ebay for the GS which really tides up the corners, the black self coloured parts have the TRD Code MS341-30005-C0 On ebay they're selling for just over £900, but on TRD Japan there about half that, but I can't order them from TRD Japan. Does anyone one know where they can be found in Europe, or from a UK retailer at a reasonable price. If tagged on a couple of pictures. Many thanks in advance. Infinity............
  2. Any one have a clue what a 60k service costs/involves on a GS450h Sport through a dealer. Think I need disks and pads too. Thanks in anticipation.
  3. where in pad do you live i was at athlone bks mate with the qrh my brother is still with them No probs posting anywhere as long as you cover the postage and a few pounds for it.
  4. Yes some of the intetnet claims are outlandish, but a home built electrolysis unit running from the generated electricity from the altetnator, pumping out enough hydrogen and oxygen direct into the air intake must have some influence on performance or economy. Increasing the oxygen intake would show up on the lambda sensor.
  5. I have a new un-used double Din E radio fasia coversion plate for an IS200 Bought a few years ago for my then 200 sport. Its brand new in the box and needs a new home. PM me if you want it. A few quid and the postage and its yours rather than gathering dust on my shelf. I paid £25 for it Infinity.
  6. I've been reading with interest on the net about home made or kit form Oxyhydrogen generators and wondered if anyone had tried one on a hybrid. Its basically a Brown's gas generator (electrolise's water back to Hydrogen and Oxygen) and pipes the gas into the air intake in the regular airstream The Hydrogen being additional fuel mixed with pure oxygen. Some clains on the net state a 50% increase in fuel economy. 1 litre of de-mineralised water produces 1860 litres of mixed HHO gas. 1 Litre of water can last a couple of weeks obviously depending on mileage. What would be the effects on the engine and would you need to remap the ecu or change the lambda censor. I understand it works on petrol or diesel engines. Interested to see your comments Infinity.
  7. The 450h sport was the dealer principals car registered in April 09 3 months old with 4200k on the clock Paid 18k to change from my 2006 (56) IS 250SE-L Auto MM with 48k on the clock which i think was a cracking deal. The car was originaly priced at 34.6k. Probably the best deal i could get. In comparison Audi offerd me 10.5k for the IS in px for a new S5 Quattro 3 months ago. I laughed at them and left.
  8. The 450 is much quieter than the 250 even with the run flat tyres on. The car is obviously far better sound proofed the the IS and as such you cant hear the engine fire up, at low speeds you get a little kick and a slight shudder through the seat.
  9. Lexus Bradford had it up for £34595, i think i did pretty well.
  10. Thanks everyone. Out of that lot i'll only miss the ventilated seats in the hotest summer days, read a post earlier on which suggested the sport has ACC/PCS but can't fin any other references to it so its probably wrong. Great no sun roof, I'm 6'5" so no sunroof is a plus for me, no wood on me wheel, not bothered. Run flats.. hmm can you change them for standard tyres and a can of foam or does it mess with the tyre pressure sensors? All the rest is good news. Picking the car up on Friday morning down in Bradford.
  11. After several months of hmm and harrr, I've this afternoon gone with my initial instincs and traded my 56 IS250 SEL Auto with MM for an 09 GS450h Sport in Obsidian Black. The IS has 47k on the clock so it was a good time to change. I managed to get the Sport for 18k to upgrade which i think is a pretty good deal. After looking on Lexus web site and lots of trawling, I still can't find a comparison chart between the SEL and Sport. I know I asked this on here some time ago but i cant find the post now, I've recently read a post or two that suggest things i thought we'rnt of the sport are, like the range keeping cruise control. Does anyone have a full spec list?
  12. Thanks Parthiban, I think a trip to the dealers to pick up a brochure may be in order.
  13. I am a huge fan of the Quattroporte, was actually trying to tell my dad to swap the CLS for one of those but he was having none of it Gotta say I'm impressed by the insurance quote there, those things are group 20 aren't they so that's an impressive quote wherever you live and however old you are! Having said that have you thought about the CLS? It is a great car and their values have dropped like a stone recently so a brilliant used buy........ 41 Y/O Live around Newcastle East suburb in a terraced house with off street parking 5 years protected no claims and no points. Privilege Insurance quote on a 2006 V8 Sport Duoselect Quattroporte £40k on 16k miles per year £602.42 per year. Pretty good?.

Having said that have you thought about the CLS? It is a great car and their values have dropped like a stone recently so a brilliant used buy........ I like Mercs, and have no specific objection to the CLS but as you point out the prices have again slumped recently, I've noticed over the past few months how personal car selection really is. As i said ,I like Mercs, but for some subconscious, subliminal reason i could'nt by one of the current models, something does'nt quite fit with me. I don't know why, hence they dont appear in my shortlist.
