  1. I rembered reading about a guy who had the same issue, same filter etc in the states..........Here is his update for the fix........ "Hi Guys just an update regarding my CEL, we have resolved the issue and thought you guys might want to know what to do. After removing the stock airbox while installing the air intake kit there is a circuit that was left open and according to the instructions that came with the air intake kit it didn't mention anything about closing that open circuit so what we did using a small wire was to close the circuit and reset the computer module allowing it to run its pre check's and she was a lot happier and no more ECL or traction control warning lights. The whole process took about 20 minutes hope this information would be helpful to everyone. Thanks for the feedback and assistance guys"
  2. I got the exact same problem as yourself. Disc is recognised (version etc), would load favourites but not a new address. Got the same error message. My issue was how i was packing the ISO through Imgburn. On the other forum GPSPower there is a link that someone else provided of a single ISO which works perfect. You just need to download it, burn it at 2x or slower and it will work (well did for me so i know the issue was with the ISO i created). Same size at just over 4gb etc
  3. Booked mine in a few weeks ago Lexus Parramatta but first available date was end Aug so ended up settling on a date mid Sep. Much longer than expected but not phased, dont expect any issues with mine regarding the recall. They'll give me a loaner as well. Hopefully the GSF so i can upgrade the ISF but highly doubt it lol
  4. Think mine idles about the same, maybe touch more. I used to get the VSC signal monthly and i disconnected the battery etc as a quick fix (not ideal but was lazy lol). Anyways noticed it after i got a catback exhaust (cooincidence maybe but there are anti foulers available). Well i ended up getting a custom tune and not only did it make more power but the VSC signal hasnt come back since so double win for me haha. So good excuse to get it tuned :-)
  5. Got my 90k service for my ISF about 3 months ago. Lexus Parramatta quoted me approx $1300, so i kindly declined lol I always buy me own stuff (OEM parts where possible) to keep costs down. Anyway got Autowerks in Bev hills to do my service given he did a few mods for me and tuned the car etc so he was familiar with it. He is well aware of what is required for the service (even without my service manual), checks everything even down to the wiper blades etc. I supplied the Oil (10ltrs of it at about $65 for 5lts), oil filter from Toyota parts for about $25 (ryco equivalent even cheaper), Aircon cabin filter (Lexus about $70 but can get a Maxflow for about $20), 8 x Denso plugs for under $20 each (Lexus are about $50+ from memory each) and a few other things cant remember.
  6. Mines booked in, no warranty and a loan car wasnt an issue. Had to take it to Lexus about 6 months ago for another recall (cooling fan or something like that). Again they provided a new loan car (some hybrid thing) but generally you may have to wait a bit longer to get a loaner
  7. I hate scumbags like this, trying to gain out of someone else's expense. When i tried selling my WRX few years back, i had a very similar story. Advertised it on a few sites including Gumtree. They wanted the car sent to Darwin etc and it was to be used for transportation (really, a WRX for transportation). So obvious it was sent out to hundreds of ads and they are praying on law of averages that a few will fall for it. At first i told them i have friends in Darwin, whats your address............didnt get a response lol Later in the piece, i said bottom line, $ in my account, verified otherwise no deal. I got paypal pages (fake but actually good fakes) indicating $ in my account (overpaid as well, yeah right not suss at all). Ignored it then they threatened legal action stating they had paid me, wheres the car. I reported it and told them where to go in a nice way. Sad thing is, im sure they do this because some people fall for it in 1 way or another
  8. Havent had a chance to follow the thread in a while. Can you confirm if this will work for my 08 ISF? Some have mentioned issues for the earlier models like mine :-(
  9. I got my letter for a few days ago. Only had the car 18 months and this is my 2nd recall but ah well, better to be safe than sorry. First recall was for some cooling fans screws and other minor things. Got a new loaner for the day, free wash, free interior clean and a Lexus gift..........................a box of Lexus tissues lol. So i might book mine when my car is really dirty again haha
  10. Apexi throttle controller cheap too, about 250ish from memory and easy to install. of course no more power but like sports button with extra :-) Headers ultimately the way to go, no one disputes the power gains but it comes at a cost I even had Liverpool exhaust quote me as they said they can build headers, same specs as PPE etc but cost was virtually the same Yep Autowerks tuned mine. Few of the others on the forums used him so took their advice and it worked out well. Get the tune last once you got all the mods you think you'll be doing to save on $$. There are a few others who can tune the ISF or put some kind of pre tuned map on but never tried them before and some of their power gain claims are quite big which im skeptical of. Rather just look at the before and afters to see the real gains.
  11. Yeah ive done similar. Intake, wheels (bit more bling lol), exhaust, Oil air seperator, RR bushes, tune etc. Headers give big gains just pricey to get done. Personal preference thing but i also got a Apexi Throttle controller. I love it, most do on whatever car it is. Really increases throttle response. Agreed great cars and very reliable (dont want the car in a shop more than on the road, which can happen lol)
  12. Looks good and welcome to the forums. Ive had my ISF now for just over a year and still enjoying it :-) Looks like you already got an exhaust so you know how good they sound. Whats next.............supercharge, i would if i had the spare cash lying around lol
  13. lol there was and im sure still is but sometimes these forums are a bit quiet. I use to look daily but then havent in ages until i saw your post. Now got a working version in my ISF so big thanks for your post :-) Ps I think 2008 Subaru onwards or something like that
  14. Im sure you'll get near double me haha. As i dont like the tank getting too below a 1/4 i often find myself filling up every 300km or so. Ah well fuel economy wasnt high on my priority when getting the car lol
  15. 400-500km? That much? I wish i had that kind of fuel economy. I get about 350 in my ISF. Yeah bigger engine i know but i wish i could get close to 400-500 lol
