  1. is the front lip spoiler still for sale please email me akademiks0328@yahoo.com

  2. Does any one have step by step instructions or a video link showing how to remove the stereo/nav so I can install the Vaistech unit? Much appreciated
  3. Anyone interested in purchasing a brand new already painted black lip spoiler for their IS250 / IS350 ? Bought it for my wife's IS250 but she likes the way it already looks. Make an offer?
  4. I'm wondering if it can automatically switch from 1 phone to another depending on which phone is in the car. The system is usually set for my phone, but when my wife drives the car she has to manually sync up her phone every time. Is there a way for the system to sense which phone is in the car & automatically transfer to that phone?
  5. Is it possible to pair 2 phones to the bluetooth hands free system? Irritating to have to do it manually
  6. Does the 2006 IS250 Premium package w/nav have front & rear bumper sensors to assist when parking?
  7. Phew, i'm not alone. I got ripped up for this post I guess it's all the short IS drivers just showing their jealousy, lol
  8. Wasn't aware that rust was covered under the warranty. Is this only for the duration of the bumper to bumper warranty? Or does it only apply if you had the car rust proofed by the dealer?
  9. Thanks for the info., can't wait to get my original rim back. Dying to drive fast
  10. Well here's the thing. When I initially went over the pothole my front driver's side tire went flat immediately so I had to put the Lexus spare on for a few days. The 'check system' light never went on the entire time. Now I have a spare on the passenger side rear because that rim had to be sent out for repair and the 'check system' light has been on the entire time. Strange it didn't go on with the Lexus spare?
  11. I had my rear passenger rim sent out for repair after hitting that pothole. The tire shop put on a spare that it smaller than the rest of my tires. About 30 min. after driving on the spare the 'Check System' light went on along w/the tire icon. Is it safe to assume everything is okay and the system just recognizes that one of the tires is not in sync with the rest or could it be a more serious issue? My original rim is due back in about 2 weeks.
  12. I have been watching out for potholes all along, the city's just getting more stingy with maintaining the roads. + With some snow on the ground it gets real hard to obviously spot those potholes. Not to mention having a wife in the passenger seat and my one and a half year old son in the back constantly taking my attention away from the road :D Went to Mega Wheelz this morning. They said that my old Dunlop that went flat a few days back was so not repairable, that pothole just killed it. Besides that all the tires were near bald. So I had 4 new tires installed -Toyo Versado LX 215 50 R17. I hope these Toyo's do alot better, and I hope the higher sidewall makes somewhat of a diff. Other than this irritating problem I do love everything else about this car. Wish me luck
  13. That's what my mechanic suggested, to ditch the low profile tires and go with something with a higher sidewall. Any idea what size I am suppose to be looking for? Right now i'm riding on Dunlop SP Sport 5000's 225 45 R17's.
  14. Bad news. Driving to work this morning with my wife & kid, went over another pothole except this time the tire went flat immediately (ugh!) Pulled over onto a side street & put on the donut. I can't believe Lexus doesn't provide a full size spare, even my Celica GTS had a full size. Anyway dealing with these potholes is getting really annoying. Not only did the front driver side tire go flat, but now the rear driver's side tire also has a bulge in the side wall of the tire. Is anyone else having reoccurring issues like this? We're so fed up we're thinking about selling the car now.. I'm driving on the stock Dunlop's. I was thinking maybe if I changed to Bridgestone or any other company i'd have better luck, but i'm being told by the dealer it's the fact the IS250 runs on low profile tires that is causing the problem. Any suggestions? Frustrated.
  15. Does anyone notice a rattling sound from under the hood after starting the car? It lasts just about 1 second. Used to happen once in a while, now it's a bit more frequent. Any idea what it could be?
