  1. T2s would be good for your car.Any pad would be better than the stock pads.They bite well but the dust they produce is terrible.
  2. DBA rotors and QFM HPX pads.Good street combo and nice progressive pad bite.Make sure you get DBA street series rotors with En-shield(so the hubs don't rust)
  3. I'm in Sydney.How much are the RE003 fronts.I can get Michelin PS3s for $225 each.
  4. That's a staggered fit.I have the same.I need to replace the fronts.Not sure to go with the factory tyres or get something else.
  5. I too would like to know if this is worthwhile doing
  6. I'm due for front tyres same size as yours water.$190 seems like a good deal,what are the Sport Maxx like?
  7. I too need to replace my front tyres.So no rubbing with 235/40/18?Even on full lock?225/40/18 seems to offer next to no rim protection so hoping 235 will offer bit more rim protection as i've already kerbed one of the rims a bit.
  8. I'd recommend an upper cylinder and throttle body clean.Easy to do.
  9. Again seems price is too high.Redbook value below. I realise this is only a guide but the difference is quite a bit! Free Car Valuations 2005 Lexus GS300 GRS190R Sports Click Here to change the vehicle you wish to value Private Price Guide $10,200 - $12,600+ Average km 110,000 - 200,000 Trade in Price Guide $7,100 - $9,500+ Average km
  10. Just be patient and wait.Negotiate a price without a trade.I'd try and sell your car privately.The dealer will give you nothing for it.
  11. Hi.Welcome.My answers to your questions. 1.Redbook values this car private sale at $25700-$28900 so based on that price seems still a bit high. 2.Based on the kms it's done just take it for a good long test drive,in traffic and on open road if possible. 3.Again you state it has full Lexus service history so i'd concentrate my efforts on looking for any accidents,panels and paint not quite right in a certain light etc. 4.This car is pretty much the previous model prior to the current series 3.Others here can expand on this question. 5.Luxury,comfort and efficiency i think Lexus > Liberty.Turbo power is always nice!Comes down to preference.Lexus is better all round car .Liberty is bit more sporty. Either car will be easier on your wallet than any euro car.particularly ones out of warranty! This is my opinion only.A lot of people buy badges not cars so if you want the luxury car feeling with all the benefits and only a few minor negatives then buy a Lexus.
  12. GSL Rally Sport in Qld. DBA street series to suit Lexus IS250.$76.85 each delivered.QFM front pad set $79.00 delivered Fit yourself.Dead easy.
