  1. Hi, I just wonder out of all the members on here if any of you are AIRWOLF Fans or Remember the Show. Heres something that might be of interest to any Fans :D Chips.
  2. Hi and Welcome to LOC :) Happy Motoring with your new car. Chips..
  3. Hi, The only picture ive seen of your car is the one in this post,looking closer at the picture it looks as though the wheels are level with the wheel arch,was there no option of a better wheel offset so the wheels could sit more inside of the wheel arch?. The other option might be to have the inside of the wheel arches rolled giving a little more clear clearance then it might be possible to lower the car. Your car does look nice with the 20s ;) Chips..
  4. Hi, The car just needs lowering now and it will look Cool B)
  5. Hi and Welcome to LOC :) Have a look through the UK site,if theres not a answer in the IS section already post up,there a friendly lot and should be able to answer your questions. Good Luck. Chips..
  6. Hi, Myself when changing a timing belt its worth changing any pulleys that show signs of wear at the same time or all the work you have done is done for nothing if something breaks as in your case. Id put money on valve damage to your engine. Chips
  7. Hi, Dont take it to heart what Clarkson says,he does it to get a reaction and it looks like he got one if your talking about him.He upsets nearly everyone over here in the uk at some point :D He has something to say about everything The show must be doing something right as on another channel they have 5th Gear,a week later they nearly always copy something from the show. Heres some links for Topgear if you enjoy the Show. Chips..
  8. Thats for the info,think that could the trouble ive got with my car.I have the same warm start with my car..
  9. Hi, Ive read your other post about it being the fuel pump thats been causing the warm/hot start... Thanks for the update,ive had the same warm/hot start problem with my car since i bought it over a year ago and ive just lived with the problem up until now ;) Same symptoms as youve talked of...Car Always starts fine from cold and if its left running then no problems.If you stop the engine for afew minute when its warm then mine always started ok but the engine idle would fall away after afew seconds then the engine would seem to miss then stop...Leave the engine for a minute or so and it was start fine and be no trouble...Ive been told it could be the idle control valve (nearly £400 over here in the uk).I didnt want to spend that sort of money to find after that i still had the same problem. Someone said the fuel pump could be the problem,but i thought a fuel pump normally work or dont.. Glad youve got the starting problem sorted out and i will let you know i get on with my car. Cheers chips..
  10. Hi, Nothing to worry about its common across the Lexus range,its a pressurerised system.. chips..
  11. Hi, Like steveuk says its over one pound per litre over here in the uk :chairshot: and most of that is tax straight into the governments pocket.It cost me £70 to fill my fuel tank up the other day Try living in Rip Off Britain. chips..
