Hi bought a 2012 is250c silver on Friday, waiting to pick it up. Came from someone in Tassie but from the rear sticker was originally from Blackburn Lexus right near me. Only comes with one key (how the hell do people lose them all the time?) so may need to get another, anyone got the TIS software and cable or suggest the best way? I had friends who worked at Toyota but not for a while. Noticed it had delamination on the headlights, have never seen that in modern cars so not sure if it was protective film put on that’s coming off or is part of them. The dealer said they’d fix it. Also interested in any good independent mechanics but I’m right near Lexus of Blackburn if they are ok. Has 130km so was 90 a major service? Haven’t picked it up yet so will look through it’s service history.

Actually hard to say as I am trading in a car so the changeover changed in discussions, they had it for 24k but ended up less than that. Bit concerned about the headlights peeling at the top edge, they said they would fix it, but today the sales guy is away and noone seemed to know about that. New headlights are around the $1300 mark each before fitment and not sure whether some wreckers would have some. They may just remove the film and polish them up but not sure how I feel about that. It hadn't been detailed yet. Also thinking I won't take up the extended warranty as its a Sentinal NWC policy which seem to never pay out for anything if they say its wear and tear and also force 6mth services still on cars that have 12/15k service schedules.

All good, I usually go by whatever the final agreed price is.

Worst case you could hit up Lexmania and see if they have any headlights available, Contact them on FB.

Show us pictures 🙂

 

Yeah dont get the extended warranty, unlikely you'll need it.

So picked it up today, there is a pretty prominent noise coming from behind the rear passenger side headrest, something in the roof mechanism I think, sounds like plastic. Have another sound coming from around the drivers seat just in front near the wheel area that sounds metallic.

The previous owner put an f sport bumper on and the fog is loose on that side so could be it. I noticed the lights vibrating on the road driving along as well so not sure if the bumper is bouncing around hitting the lights. It’s a bit loose on the drivers front side. The two Centre sensors are missing as well just the side ones but I’m wondering if it only had two on the front as a prestige and the fsport has 4 so they put them on the side only.

 

if anyone has recommendations for where to get it serviced in Blackburn apart from Lexus let me know.

Yeah you will need to tighten then.
