  1. Happy Birthday Lex-aholic!

  2. Could be worse - you could be me and not even know what a CV boot is
  3. Thanks for the offer - I might just take you up on that if that's okay. I'll see how things go for the time being, cuz I've got a holiday booked shortly as well......too much happening at one time.....I can feel the stress levels rising already and it's only Monday Just out of question - if it was the power steering pump, does anybody have a clue as to how much it'll cost to be replaced ? <nail biting>
  4. I'll have a look at the wheel again later, but I'm pretty sure when I checked Yesterday it looked all okay and clean. I drove the car down the gym Yesterday afternoon (which was fine as far as I remember). It was when I got in and drove back home later that I noticed it. But you can't hear it if the windows are up, so it's definitely outside the car. Marvellous though ain't it.......I'm looking to trade the car in about September / October time so I'm trying to save my pennies for my next car.....oh well - worse things happen I suppose. What would happen if it was a split CV joint ? (just out of question). Thanks for your help BTW. B)
  5. I had a look underneath, but couldn't see anything rubbing at all - although with the funny noise created, it could sound like the plastic slightly rubbing against the tyre. As for the power steering pump - I really haven't got a clue. I am soooo not mechanically minded. I did check the power steering fluid and that's full. It's kinda like the noise only really appears when the weight is distributed to that area of the car, ie. when you go around a left bend. But the gassy sound does sound remarkably like when you put full lock on - even though the car isn't on full lock (if you follow me) :duh:
  6. I have this strange hissy sound coming from the front driver's side of the car (possibly wheel) area when I take a left turn at speed - ie, if I was just to pull out from a junction I wouldn't hear it. It's only happened since Yesterday. Any ideas what it could be ? It doesn't happen when I hit the brakes, or when I go over bumps so I'm not sure what else it would be. It isn't causing any problems at the moment, but as I'm not aware of what it is I'm a bit concerned and puzzled :duh:
  7. Just a quick update - I've managed to download the pictures now. So feel free to have a browse, and drop me a pm or text if you're interested. I'm looking for approx £75, but open to offers. And would be more interested in collection only rather than delivery.
  8. I've now moved the subwoofer over to a separate thread - so can you please close this thread as the exhaust has been SOLD. Many Thanks
  9. Pioneer 200w Subwoofer, model reference TS-WX20LPA. This is a pre-amped subwoofer, which comes in a tube shape cylinder. It gets fitted to the boot of car via two small screws which retain a bracket, which then you use the strap supplied to fit around the tube and tighten kinda like a belt. So no messy drilling, or large holes left when you need to remove the sub, should you ever be going on holiday, or if you want to sell it on in future. The Sub pumps out a fantastic sounding 200w - which is sufficient to fill the cabin of any saloon. And all the original leads are still with the Sub so there will be no problems with connections. I used to have it in the boot of the Veedub that I had prior to the Lexus as the stereo system supplied wasn't sufficient. However, I personally am quite satisfied with the one in the Lexus and therefore haven't bothered fitting the sub in this car. The sub was purchased at £200, but I am open to sensible offers. Unfortunately I am not at a computer where I can download the pictures from my mobile, but if you are genuinely interested drop me a text on 07810 820767 and I'll send you the pictures by mobile or I can send them to your e:mail address.
  10. UPDATE - the exhaust has now been SOLD. However, I still have the mats for sale and also the following : A Pioneer 200w Subwoofer, model reference TS-WX20LPA.

I may send this out at a later date on a separate thread (when I can get to a computer which I can download to) with the pictures attached - I'll see if I get any response on this for the moment.
  11. Just a quick update - the bootliner has now been SOLD. The mats are still up for grabs, so if anybody's interested just drop me a line and we can make arrangements.
  12. Yeah, the original went back on last Thursday.......what a difference......I didn't think the Prolex was loud at all - just a nice enough soft burble leading to a throaty sound when you floor it.... ....put the original back on, and it's like....."Hello....is the car on ?".....real quiet, and bloody horrible rusty looking again - the main reason I changed to the Prolex (high polished stainless steel throughout) Sounds alot better than the norm......just enough burble to keep you as a Lexus driver, and not a boy racer I do have a potential buyer, and providing things go to plan (finger's crossed) I'll be selling it to him on Saturday. But if for any reason he decides to pull out, I'll let you know :winky:
  13. IS200 bootliner collection only - want £20 what a bargain !! :D It does look as though the pictures haven't come through. If you ARE interested, drop me a pm or send me a text to 07810820767 and I'll send you pictures via e:mail or phone - whichever you prefer. IS200 mats collection only (sorry cant afford posting - unless you want to arrange for courier ?) £80 new for set, looking for £40 - that's half price peeps ! :) All mats are in perfect condition, but as you can see from the pictures the front two appear to be lighter ? - I presume this is due to sunlight fading.
  14. Unfortunately the time has come, and I'll be getting rid off my beloved Lexus in a couple of months so here goes for some last minute fund raising : I've had the above exhaust for 10 months, purchased for £275 but asking only £150. Collection only unless local to bristol, or you can arrange collection. The second pic does show a small scratch on bottom of box but this does not show when fitted. send me a pm if interested or contact me on 07810820767
  15. I've got the Kazama Pro-Lex fitted at the moment, but will be looking to sell in a couple of weeks (when I get it removed) for £150. I can e:mail you a few pics from my mobile if you're interested. Drop me a PM if you wanna know any more
