  1. NO!!...... :) For the professional, thorough service and attention to detail they gave my car, for $400.00 I'll certainly be going back there again in another 30,000 kms as the gearbox is running and changing so very smoothly at 173,000 kms on the clock now.
  2. Hi All, For your information the V22 map upgrade for a 2007 IS250 Sports Luxury, you need the +R DVD - All working well
  3. Hi all, 2007 IS250 - My low beam right side headlight does the standard lexus flick on and off trick while driving along, have checked and installed new bulbs and also tightened the connection to the HID bulb holder cap etc. but still flickers Next step now is to replace the ballast, so where does one purchase new ballasts for this model in Australia at a reasonable prices, Denso seems a good option YES /NO?? Anyone have any contacts, recommendations or stock spare parts on here, any info would be great,
  4. Hi, Thanks for the heads up, but that's me buggered then...... The only thing I burn is the bloody toast, I might just stick with the V20 that's in it now
  5. Hi, I loaded the V22 map into my 2007 is250 yesterday, when it came up on the screen I was unable to punch in any new addresses, "location not found in selected area" etc or something similar would come up on the screen, it just wouldn't let me into the system. I went to press the "change" button for the "States" etc and nothing would come up. I could hear the disk searching and moving around but nothing would come up. I then reinstalled my older V20 copied disk and all works fine again. Any info or suggestion would be great :)
  6. Just had both recalls done on my 2007 IS250 yesterday at Blackburn Lexus in Melbourne. Excellent service, very time efficient and my wife was impressed with the complete setup - Thank you Blackburn Lexus!! :)
  7. Gidday, I followed a youtube "walk thru" vid and brought the screen off ebay in the UK, is bloody easy if you just take your time and step through it slowly over a couple of hours.
  8. Gidday, Yep tried this over the weekend on my 2007 IS250 and it worked a charm, had it have a couple of goes at it with the extended counting but all good. Many thanks,
  9. Hi Atlantis I wrote this line below on one of my posts in this thread for the benefit of Melbourne Owners, it reads - "Get that oil changed and I can highly recommend Kewish Automotive - 29A Amberley Cres, Dandenong South, Phone (03) 9793 2220" Sorry mate but that clearly states a business name and address, even a phone number to call and as for your comment "this thread is one of the most useless reads I've seen so far" well best of luck to you and that will certainly encourage new members to the forum with an attitude like that coming from a moderator..
  10. Hi, I had heard and read about this also while trolling forums and threads etc beforehand and I to did question the transmission specialist that performed my full service. It was not a concern he said and will have no effect whatsoever on the car. I personally suspect its a sales pitch from the high end dealers to up sell their products and make it sound technical to do but I may very well be wrong. After 20,000kms since my full auto service was completed our Lexus is running so very smoothly and I will be returning to the same independent business to have it done every 50,000kms.
  11. Gidday, Sorry to hear about the lock fail, and I'm also sorry to see 30 views of your thread and not one reply, not even a word or two of encouragement, not that any encouragement can physically fix your car issue can hey, we are a forum after all and its comforting to know that some people give a *BLEEP* about things. I myself have not had this locking problem, but with more bells n whistles on our cars than a Christmas tree, I'm always holding my breathe for that day that something gives. I like a good Google research to solve any issue, so I'll start with reading about this locking issue and see what comes up. Best of luck and I'm sure it will be something very simple at the end of the day, issues generally are.
  12. Hi, If done properly they can, I went to an independent automatic transmission business and I stood there beside the car, (car on hoist) and with the car running I watched the black *BLEEP*ty oil come out and then slowly change to a nice red as it was flushed though... That was good enough for me and yes it will be done again at 200,000 kms
