  1. Hey all, searched thru the message board, could use some help. Both daytime running lights (lights that stay on during the day while normal low or high beam lights are not in use) went out simultaneously and no longer function. Could this be a fuse issue? Any help would be appreciated, I am not what one would call mechanically gifted. :)
  2. I would like to upgrade my Nav DVD to a more current version - what is the latest correct version for my 2002 LX470? Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Hey folks - a quick note to let you know that I have had my 4th warranty replacement for my Silverstars in less than 2 years. Yes, the replacements are free (and the O'Reilly employee always smiles when I walk thru the door) - but the Silverstars are total POS. I have taken a VOM to make certain that the bulbs weren't getting too much current. The guy at O'Reilly said that they are thinking of no longer carrying them - too much of a pain in the !Removed!, as many people are experiencing the same issues as I am. YMMV.
  4. Just a quick update on the Silverstar replacement bulbs - I am now replacing my 2nd set in about a year and a half. Yes, I wore gloves to assure no finger oil on the bulb during installation. No, I don't use the headlights any more than an average amount of time. I expected to get more than 10 months use out of the low-beams - this seems like incredibly short lifespan for this product.
  5. The Nav DVD is dual sided - if you have that type of DVD burner, you should be able to duplicate an original.
  6. Curious what I should expect to pay for a 60K mile service. Better to do at Lexus or Toyota? I know that the 120K is better at Lexus due to the possibility of ruining the level control. Any thoughts?
  7. Purchased the above mentioned screen protectors - they are excellent. I would highly recommend them - easy to install, look great, no fingermarks or cleaning.
  8. FWIW, I did not touch the bulb - am very aware of finger oils shortening bulb life. And did get a free replacement at the local O'Reilly Auto Parts w/o a receipt or box. Just wish I could get something brighter for low beams.
  9. FWIW, I have had to replace the low beam H1ST's with less than 6 months of usage on them. Both bulbs failed within 1 week of the other. I have replaced them with the same model, but overall I'm pretty dissatisfied with them. Any suggestions?
  10. Mark, How did you get the dash cover off - don't want to break anything. Thanks!
  11. Anyone know if such a thing exists and where one could get it? I've seen transparent protectors for computers, cell phones, etc. Also, what do you use to clean it without damage? Thanks!
  12. I may be incorrect about the "street-legal" aspects of HID headlights - perhaps it was Xenon, etc. Chip's articles are close to way I remember seeing. Either way, I am disappointed in the overall headlight coverage of the LX470, with or without the Silvania's. What options exist now?
  13. Newest version was released in Oct. 2004, though I am not sure of the version number. My version (2003) is 3.1.
  14. I purchased a 2002 CPO LX470 - it came with the Nav release from that year. I purchased the upgrade DVD on ebay for under $150, works fine. I asked my dealer for the upgrade, they wouldn't do it. BTW, the DVD used for the Nav system is double density, so it would be tough to burn a copy :)
