  1. I cant make it i have too much on. Enjoy guys.
  2. Ok guys. Ive done this to multiple members cars and is simple in theory but takes about an hour to do. The reason i have stopped offering to do this i dont have the time and i can not afford to replace your ecu due to slight differences from model to model. The risk is financially to high for me to take on someone elses car. I used a DPDT relay with IGN2 source and Puddle lamp source also with a dedicated 12v for the entire DRL system. I also used another relay in series with this relay to create a true 50% DRL when parking lights were turned on. You will have to disconnect the DRLs from the existing system due to Lexus ECU using resistive switching to turn things on and off. If you do not you will get stray voltages that will harm your ECU. Lexus does not use traditional methods of switching they use a more technological millivolt and resistive switching setup in all thier circuit boards chips and ECUs. If you want to achieve this DRL trick i suggest strongly that you disconnect the DRLs from the ECU and wire in your own setup so you do not harm the ECU as fingering with the electronics does not get you a replacement ECU under warranty!! Good Luck !! Planktoon007 may still have a video of one of the setups.
  3. Bump. Price drop. Coming off the car now ready for local drop off. 50% rubber all round.
  4. Nice!! Congrats on the purchase. What about the things you do like?
  5. Alot of disapointment in the RCF wide spread. Franky whats your opinion of the RCF as a street vehicle though. The majority of buyers may only track it once. Maybe not at all. Majority of buyers would only be doing spirated street / twisty speed limited corner hugging.
  6. What was the outcome of this. Fuel level sensor?
  7. Are these still for sale.
  8. The people at dealerships are human too and not personal slaves. The attitude you have approaching the dealership will greatly impact your experience.
  9. Sydney gaurd rolling is great. As for tures rims and fitment all sounds out of place. Try them on if you have them before spending more money.
  10. Did any one get this done. If you find an auto elec tht knows his way around lexus/ toyoda its easy. Let me know what it costs if you get it done.
  11. Sounds good, Keep me in the loop, My car is suffering quite a bit of neglect and it would love some attention!!

    I stopped in today to check out the NX and the RC. I think some number crunching needs to be done for an Infrared with dark rose F-sport.
  14. sorry for the late reply. Yes you can but the results may vary. if you want a proper job done and serious power another amped sub should be used.
  15. No. If you have a pre 09 car there probably is no issue. But post 09 car there will only be 2 cables going to the sub. So a pre 09 sub will only work half of its potential. Because it needs 4 wires from the amp. Conecting another post 09 sub is not solving the issue but making do with the issue. A true fix is a pre 09 amp and wiring loom and speakers. Lexus have skimped in an area where most ppl probably wouldnt be able to tell. But with a younger and younger demographic i think they shouldnt have done this.
  16. I don't know what they cost. I borrowed a spare from green global auto for testing and am yet to pay.
  17. Hey guys. It had come to some of our attention that with the 2009 revamp. The bass in the stereo mark levinson or standard was poor. My 2005 prestige pov pack had fantastic power in the bass line. Whilst anything post 09 the system was good but bass was seriously lacking. Hence loud music became very tiney. As I soon discovered with extended time in my 2011 SL. So I decided to do some more investigating and found the sub woofer used these days is only a single core speaker where the older ones used to be an expensive dual core speaker. And made it difficult to upgrade to an external sub for those serious car audio enthusiasts. (Balancing etc). I have done a little modding this weekend and since I don't have an old dual core sub, nor four speaker wires at the sub that a dual core requires. I paralleled a second post 2009 ML sub up to the standard ML system / Sub and mounted under the parcel tray next to the existing. And all of a sudden the POWER is back!! Awesome control and serious bass when you want it. Instead of having bass on full and getting no bass. It sits on half way now and is perfect.
  18. Hey guys. Have you seen this post in green global auto section. It's epic and classy. GreenGlobal Auto is offering Greddy Sp2 exhaust for the 2006-2012 IS250/IS350 As most of you guys will know this is probably the best sounding exhaust without being too ridiculously loud Twin oval muffler set up The Greddy Sp2 is the newer version of the much loved Greddy SE exhaust and will add power/looks and sound to your is250/350 See the full thread here. http://au.lexusownersclub.com/forums/topic/12500-greddy-sp2-exhaust-for-2006-2012/
