Just a word I have been quoted $400 by a Lexus dealer for a full oil, filter change and he tells me it should be dun at a certain oil temperature they say they have dun lots of them.

Lexus Parramatta quoted me $620 for my ISF (different transmission to the IS250)

Hi gfs250,

Thanks for the excellent write-up! Another person here posted about this just last year. He also had some excellent information (pasted below).

To be honest I'm really surprised to read the Lexus Dealers are now offering this service, what with it being a "sealed system" and all that.

I'm in Sydney and planning to get the same job done early next year. My mechanic agreed that it should be done, and says he can recommend a transmission specialist in Parramatta. I'll report back how it went and who it was once I get it done (for the benefit of other owners here, not sure why mentioning a place is such a big "secret"?).

Me either... everyone is tap-dancing around the issue like it's some illegal activity.

I know my box needs flushing and this thread is one of the most useless reads I've seen so far.

If you know a reputable place to get it done, for the benefit of other readers please mention where it can be done.

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..

I was referring to the Sydney crowd, so my apologies for not being clearer on the matter.

You were the only one to post a location, but albeit 1000km away from most people asking the questions on here.

Thanks! That's very close to me, and great to know where I can get the tranny fluid change.

Maybe the Sydney places are offering kickbacks for personal referrals? ;-)

I mentioned Lexus Parra, Lexus being an obvious choice i guess but Autowerks in Bev hills can also do it.  I got a service done on my ISF with the intent of getting the trans flushed too but Lexus didnt have a gasket and a few other parts required so i didnt get it done but they advised they do this and other cars regularly (for sealed units) so call them for a price for a IS250 or whatever Lexus you have.

You could save a bit as well and get the oil before hand (cut the middle man out so to speak).  Its about $65 for 4L through Ebay sellers (genuine toyota stuff for the ISF, not sure about a 250)
