  1. not good. even on the FB forums there was some confusion and last minute suggestions on time and route. Eventually no one turned up. Not sure if iinkz and jgs98 actually turned up ? I was there, waited for a while and then went for the drive around - once I take that puppy out, I end up driving the hills...
  2. Sorry guys, running a bit late. Meet is still on, will reach 2:30
  3. depends on the year of the car. Newer ones 2010 onwards just need the long press (5 seconds or thereabouts) on the Vsc button and the TC & ABS both are switched off. A short press also works, but re-engages both systems once the car reaches 20/25 kph.
  4. Alright folks; Meetup point and route is below. There will be a few folks from the Facebook group who are not on this forum... Start time - 2pm meetup for 2:30pm start. Meetup - BP Fuel Caldermeade - At the truck parking area. Approx Route - Lang Lang -> Nyora -> Drouin South -> Warragul South -> Korumburra -> Kongwak -> Loch -> Tooradin - At the ice-cream shop:)
  5. ok, looks like the voting is better for 11th Feb, i'll plan out a trip and post up details here. Probably going to be a post-lunch meetup and drive through some hills (East or South East side).
  6. yeah, we had one 3 years back I think, and after that it just went quiet. There's a fair few people, but just not active... even these forums are very quiet. I'm part of a few other forums (IT and Motorcycle) and there's always some chatter going on - the motorcycle forum is really one of the best - very active, lots of rides and events.
  7. Planning for a Melbourne meetup. please use the voting tab and let's see how many numbers.
  8. errm.. this one was for Jul last year. Maybe I'll create a new thread for Feb this year - I'll put a few dates and we can vote to see attendance numbers. We should have more meets, but each time I put one up not many turned out - I do end up going for drives around regardless. I've discovered a lot of driving/riding routes since getting my motorcycle licence. I'll put one on Facebook group as well.
  9. I believe so... I'll try calling him, but will find a good day - as he always tries to sell me the RCF or LC500 - so it takes a while to discuss cars with him :)
  10. If I remember correctly - the Sales guy told me approx 30/year.
  11. Check the service book - it will have this 15,000 or every 12 months whichever comes sooner. Going to another service workshop (qualified only) will not void warranty unless it's extended warranty provided by a dealer subject to custom terms. As per law they can't void manufacturer's warranty on a new car if there was a service book maintenance done by a qualified mechanic/garage. depending on how old the car is though, it may affect resale value.
  12. Anyone up for a club meet & Drive day ? Possibly one of the Sunday's.
  13. Was planning to setup a club meet in Melbourne soon.
  14. Update: I got original Lexus parts from the US. Front Rotors + Pads + Shipping all up for just over a $1,000 (arrived in just under 2 weeks - DHL) + $231 for fitting from Toyota service. Much better than the 2.8K the dealer quoted - bloody joke...
  15. Sport Maxx is no good. Once the enter mid life, very noisy and a bit grumbly in corners. if you're not looking for premium pricing of the Michelin PSS, i'd recommend the Continentals. Bridgestone Adrenalins are also good, but for the price the PSS is much better.
