  1. No need to whiff around my car, never smelt a thing!!.. Hopefully it slowly disappears
  2. 177,000kms, on it now. We plan on keeping it for many years as it does everything lovely and easily plus we are not one for the latest bell's n whistles very few years :) The diff is not a seal unit, no:)
  3. Hi Will, It will be interesting to see the colour of the "unchangeable oil" when it comes out :) this is around the some kms as I had mine done for the first time. Best of luck to you and thanks for the post
  4. Well done and so glad to hear, oh and good on you for stepping outside the box and getting it done instead on going by the dealer service book internals and completely ignoring it altogether. Preventative maintenance is bloody cheap!! - Cheers
  5. No need to service or PROPERLY flush the gearbox Lexus say... Bull*BLEEP* I say!!. At 150,000 gentle Hwy kms, my auto had black/brown *BLEEP*ty oil come out of it after ringing around the Lexus and some Toyota dealerships to be told just that, "It is not needed and cannot be thoroughly flushed"...Total Rubbish I thought in a modern world. After hunting around I was recommended to a business in Dandenong by a A1 mechanic, I rang, booked it in then there, where I stood and watched the procedure from the sidelines. Yep black oil was pumped out with the engine running and litres of new red oil pumped in. A new gearbox filter was also installed and all good to go again for $400.00 Very Happy and I'll be back at 200,000kms for another change to see the colour of it after 50,000kms I have no affiliation with the business I have listed below, they just provided very good efficient service. Kewish Transmission - 29 Amberley Cresent Dandenong - 97932220
  6. My input, Penrite 5w-40 Full Synth oil, yep buy a few containers when on sale etc. plus I run Wix oil filters. Have ran it in my V6 hilux since new, now 300,000 kms and never missed a beat. My lexus gets 10,000kms oil and filter changes and its pushing 200,000kms and never missed a beat either. :)
  7. 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.
  8. Hi All, For your information the V22 map upgrade for a 2007 IS250 Sports Luxury, you need the +R DVD - All working well
  9. 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,
  10. 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
  11. 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 :)
