  1. Hi, I’ve got a 2000 GS300 which is a mark 2. Found a good exhaust system for sale, only thing is he says it’s off a 1997 mark 1. So will a mark 1 GS300 exhaust got a mark 2 GS300? thanks
  2. Hi, My middle and back section of exhaust need replacing and I'm struggling to find anywhere other the Toyota to buy one from. I live in the north west of England does anyone have any suggestions of anywhere to buy these parts from please? Thanks, Dave.
  3. The rear section of my exhaust has a blow,at the 'split' where the two rear pipes separate, i can pretty much see it, but neither the Holts gun gum, nor the Granville paste, seem to be able to stick for long enough. A few hours drive, and the dried paste has managed to push out and away. I don't really want to spend £600 on a new rear section, surely there must be a simpler way to repair it? Even if it involves a 'bodge'? cheers all
  4. Hi there, Last summer, just after I bought my LS, I discovered that one of the exhaust pipes didn't blow as strong as the other. The difference was quite significant. At first I panicked a bit, but a quick inspection led me to discover a leak in the right back box, precisely its bottom wall, centrally located around half way length-wise. It was big enough. The corrosion was pretty bad, so I decided to get a new one. I wanted the best solution, and thought that I should get it from Lexus, (a ton of money) or if from any other shop, it should be as close as possible to the original. The search was long an painful, and I was giving up when found a small (home business) manufacturer in Poland. They are making all kinds of custom-made muffler replacements. I pre-ordered and in less than two weeks I had both of my boxes delivered - brand spanking new as shown on the picture. I also had a chat about my problem with the engineer from that company, who said that LS430 back box has a built-in design flaw, and that's why they all corrode and screw you up always in the same way. Not waiting any longer I grabbed an angle grinder and the results you see on the pictures. As it turns out, the mid-section wall has a flap on a metal spring. This spring gets exposed to pretty corrosive environment (water, and temperature), and you don't have to wait very long (I wonder how long) before it's so corroded that the flap cannot open any more. This leads ( you can guess) to excessive exhaust gass back-pressure build up, which is not very nice for the engine nor it is good for the performance. My flap was quite badly stuck closed, which also leads to excess water accumulation in the compartment before the flat, which in turns causes the bottom of the box corrode all the way through. On the finishing note, I am happy the new boxes do not have that annoying flap, the car runs nice and quiet, so far no problems. What I discovered in this case is to me an example of typical blind over-engineering, without thinking through about materials, the environment they are working in and the consequences. Had I gotten my brand new boxes from Lexus (for an astronomical price) , I would have had the same problem back in a few years soon.... Regards
  5. So to my amazement my late 2000 (T3?) GS300 passed the MOT with its very aged and knackered exhaust. Two advisories, webbing of a seat belt and "oil leak pinion rear diff". So two questions if I may for your thoughts, experience and knowledge :) 1. Theres no Diff whine, and though wet, I'm not getting any drips. And to be honest I've not had a leaky diff on any car before. Is this common? Tough to fix? Indicative of anything major (other than the diff running dry of course)? (cars just coming up to 150k miles) 2. Exhausts. How much difference to the sound do the "resonators" and maybe third cat make internally? I don't want to lose back pressure anyway, but I see/read that people who have fitted stainless steel systems without the "resonators" on the middle/Y-pipe are getting a lot of drone inside. What needs to stay in some fashion to keep the internal noise level as close to stock as possible? I ask because I still want to replace the system from the front to the back (not the manifold and 2 front cats though, they're okay). Standard systems used are £300+, third party new totals around £400 or so. Stainless steeel fitted new, cheapest quote so far is £390 (I've had loads of quotes). However, thats almost certainly without the resonators/mufflers on the Y pipe. Last option and most likely one is some shiney tail pipes from the USA (those plus shipping works out cheaper than UK fitted ones). All I want is a healthy system in the middle (third cat/front pipe and middle Y-piece) and shiney non-OTT tail pipes that just give a little more external tune for the lovely 2JZ. Seeing as standard rear boxes are pushing on £200 a piece new, I can get a pair of stainless steel ones for about £280, or for £340'ish I can get a Manzo cat back (Y-piece and rear boxes) however the Y-piece has no "resonators" and tempting as it looks, I fear a terrible noise inside and possibly a drop in back pressure I'd rather not have. Sorry for the waffle, but the whole picture might save some guess work for you :) (Images of a standard system and a Manzo cat back for reference about what I am waffling on about)
  6. Hi all! Having had my latest GS300 for a couple of months now, the MOT is due and I know the current exhaust is an issue (see pics). I have been desperately hunting for a stainless steel system in preference to an OEM seeing that the two used ones on eBay are a mighty £350! And MIJ have quoted me £445 for new S/S with life time warranty (as an FYI). So the questions are: 1. If I plug that hole in the back box, and make sure that and the awful paste all over the joint isn't leaking either (thats how I bought the car, not my handy work I'll add) might I stand a chance I wonder, as technically the fail is excessive corrosion. But I fear all that putty is an obvious giveaway of excessive corrosion even if its not leaking. 2. Another MOT requirement seems to be the correct number of baffles/mufflers, so should one slap a S/S cat back on would it be an issue. Or should I maybe say has anyone taken there car (any car) in for an MOT with a S/S cat back and had any issues other than possible noise or emissions? Many thanks! I am getting a little frustrated that in the last two months I've not found a single second hand S/S system and I'm not really wanting to throw to much on the car just yet until I've had it a while longer.

    Japspeed exhaust is200

    Is200 Japspeed backbox stainless steel includes adjustable baffle, used so obviously has cosmetic marking but overall in really good condition, polishes up great. Can send pictures of it fitted at request. £99 Ono collection from Durham DH9 or willing to meet within reasonable distance
  8. I am new in this forum just bought an is250 two weeks ago. It's handle fantastic. I am looking for a good exhaust which sound great. It will be please if anyone can tell me where can I find one nice e.g. Invidia or Hopefully anyone of you guys got one used can sell it to me. Many thanks
  9. Hello ! I want to share my experience about replacing exhaust system. I've done a service on my Lex G300 2005 3.0 V6 and they found an exhaust pipe is split in place where it joints a middle muffler. They quoted a job for nearly 1200£.. because they sell this part altogether with two rear cat's. As you guess I didn't let them touch it even, especially Lexus Centre in Birmingham - their service is the worst I've ever experienced - but alright it's a different subject. I decided to go into a stainless steel Exhaust system. I searched some info on the internet and found that many people recommend John Ashley Exhausts in Walsall. I called them and arranged a job. I spoke to a man at their place, decided to replace a whole cat-back system and chose what tail pipe I want and how I want it to sound. I went into the most quiet system they can do, but with a hint of nice roar when I strongly accelerate. After around 6 hours they finished the job. It looks amazing, but I can see they didn't install a middle muffler, so what's going on? John (an owner) said that according to their experience two rear boxes should be enough especially for automatic car. I do not really know what influence an auto gearbox can have on exhaust but ok. When I started an engine I said.. WOW man, it sounds gorgeous. It was late, so I said I will check it on my way back to home and let him know what I think the next day. It sounded great on idle but on the motorway it was a disaster.. it was TOO LOUD, definitely TOO LOUD. So I went back to them next week. They put a middle muffler on as well and didn't charge for job, just for a box. Now it is AMAZING sound especially over 3'000 rpms. It is close to perfection, could be slightly quieter in range from 1800-2600 rpms but it is NOT TOO LOUD now. It is acceptable, but when I hear this roar over 3000 rpm's IT IS WORTH to have a little droning below 2600 rpm's :) After a month I had put some sound deadening mats and liners in the boot and now is alright at lower rpm's. To sum up, the OEM Exhaust would cost 1200£ and would give this amazing silence inside the car which is so great, but honestly V6 enignes shouldn't be so restrained. Now when I accelerate everyone around knows that it's not a common saloon, it's a real BEAST :) Now I have a really great genuine V6 sound and amazing looking of stainless steel exhaust for as litte as 470£.
  10. Hello everyone, hope you can help. Does anyone know what this part is called so I can try and buy a replacement? It was just above the exhaust back box until yesterday, corrosion seems to have taken care of that though :( Thank you everyone Mark
  11. Hey guys, lexus failed on the mot sure to the back box, corroded and started to crack, they want £450+vat for OEM Does anyone have a recommendation for OEM spec that doesn't cost the earth, the car is 14 years old now and although it's still tidy it's probably only worth £3k so don't think I need to go direct for parts anymore I have only another week before the current MOT expires so any quick help is greatly appreciated Thanks in advance Rory
  12. Hello I am new to the forum. I bought an approved used is250 with extended warranty on 20 Nov 2015. I have only driven the car for 400 miles and today noticed that exhaust is blowing. I am not sure if it is the middle or rear section. The car was MOT'ed on 20 Nov by Lexus Bolton at the time of delivery. There are no advisories on certificate. I would not expect this issue to happen in such a short period of time. During this period the car was not driven for three weeks (22 nov to 14 dec) due to holidays. Seems like Lexus did not check the exhaust system properly during their inspection and MOT. The car had full service done before delivery and has full service history by Bolton. I am just wondering what are my options here? Surely the new exhaust is about 2000 GBP fitted. Any help/suggestions will be helpful Thanks
  13. As the titles suggests. I'd like to either run a sports cat or decat the entire exhaust on my IS200 (52 plate) To be honest i really don't want to be messing around each year swapping the decat and original exhaust over. What would be the better option? £150+ on getting a sports cat manifold? £0+ Elbow grease bashing out the cat's internals? Would the O2 sensor start throwing problems at me if i remove the internals of the cat? Would it develop a nasty raspy sound from the engine due to the flow bouncing around the now hollow cat? My exhaust is already nice and shiny from lots of grinding and polishing so no need for looks etc... Anyone ran their IS200 decat or bashed out the internals etc..? Also how likely will it fail on emissions without a cat? Would i be looking at a good service before hand or adding a more restrictive muffler at the end for the mot? Thanks in advance.
  14. One of my back boxes has corroded off the pipe and is currently in a plastic bag in the garage. I've been quoted £750 fitted to replace the back section of the exhaust (from the cat back) by my dealership, and none of the usual exhaust/tyre places can get an aftermarket equivalent part at all, so they'd be buying the Lexus part for £660 and fitting it. I'm not convinced it could be successfully welded, and if the one box has gone, odds are the other is on its last legs too although no perforations yet. Quick search on eBay reveals many US manufacturers claiming to produce the part in stainless for maybe £350 including shipping. I quite fancy saving £300, but has anyone got any experience of this? I don't fancy a two week wait then being left with an expensive pile of stainless steel that won't fit from a company on the other side of the world. Any advice?
  15. I have white smoke emmissions coming from car particularly evident when changing gear. I don't appear to be burning oil, or coolant and there is no smell or impact on the driving of the car. Being a diesel, I'm thinking that its something to do with the catalytic converter but wondered if members have a better idea?
  16. Just wondering how similar are the is200 to the is300 are the only difference engine? And will is300 wind deflectors front and back fit is200? And what cd player will fit in my is200 im looking for one with satnav built in and all the usual added extras Jut unsure of what size will fit think there called double dins? Aha correct me if im wrong Love the car tho think its amazing. Not as powerful as i wanted but i think it sounds great with the straight 6 lovely tone to it. I do want a more square/aggressive front bumper can any one point me in right direction?

    Lexus Is300 Exhaust

    Hi all, Our 2002 sportscross has an exhaust issue it's blowing just under the drivers footwell there is a cowell which has split which has some insulated pieces inside can anyone tell me which parts I will need to repair it's at the bottom of the down pipes. Maybe someone on this forum can advise or may have parts for sale. Many thx in advance...
  18. Hi guys, just wondering if it's possible to remove the cat from the exhaust on a 08 is 220d to improve flow, and if so does it throw up any alarms/warnings on the dash?
  19. Hey Lexus owners I just bought new car on April 2013 and as soon as i opened my hood i noticed that there is rust on a exhaust manifold and on the screws that are holding it, I´m just wondering did anyone have same problems or did you guys notice something like this on your IS220D engine. I´m also attaching photos so you could see Thank you all POZZ
  20. Hi guys, I want to buy an exhaust system, few styling upgrades, wheels and lowering springs. Can anyone advise whats good/nice and where to buy from? Thanks in advance guys
  21. Hi, first post here so apologies ind advance if break any rules (unitentionally). Have owned my 2005 RX400h since early 2008 and it has never missed a beat, it has been serviced by local Lexus dealer and has been one of the best cars I have ever owned. It has 87,000 miles and looks as good as new Noticed yesterday that the the exhaust was blowing and so took it into the dealership and they confirmed there was a crack in part of the system. As I have the Lexus extended warranty they are going to try and claim on that policy on my behalf but if it is not sanctioned then the bill will be £1,300 ! Preparing myself for the worst I was wondering if anyone had any experience of using third party, bespoke stainless steel system as these seem to be around half of the cost. Thanks
  22. I read a post on here about converting thr rear end of the IS220. Someone answered back saying that it was an easy straight fit. I decided to have a go and this is the result. I also, as you can see, took the chance to have the lip spoiler fitted. Lexus wanted to charge over £450 for supply and fit of the spoiler, but a hunt round ebay and I got this one painted and delivered for £100. There are a few different ones available. I chose this one as it had bolts to attach it to the boot lid. There are some that are just stuck on with double sided tape. Hmmmm. To do the job, I bought an IS250 bumper from eBay with the reversing sensor holes and the twin exit exhaust back section. Problems encountered : 1. I wanted the "Lexus" and "IS220d" badges removed. This left 6 locating holes that had to be filled and the boot painted. 2. The replacement bumper had square holes for the parking sensors. My sensors needed round holes. New sensors form Lexus are £104 each, plus £12 for the small brackets to hold them. We therefore filled the holes, painted the bumper and drilled perfect size round holes. 3. There is no exhaust hanger on the passenger side. The holes to mount the hanger are present and the bolts to attach the hanger are there. Part from Lexus is : 1750931061 Costs (purchase and delivery) : Spoiler - £100 Bumper - £65 Exhaust - £70 Exhaust hanger - £25 Bodyshop - £325
