  1. 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.

  4. Hey Guys, At the Dyno Day last weekend i purchased an Auto mirror closer from ASHPOINT, The kit is awesomely simple and took me about an hour to install. What it does is automatically folds the mirrors when you lock the car in any way. Then when you unlock it, the mirrors open to their normal position!! It comes with step by step instructions and relatively easy to install. (all you need is a soldering iron and a set of wire cutters) You also have the option of not folding them by pressing unlock - lock within 1 second. and also the other way around if you wish to leave them closed when you approach the locked car (Lock unlock within 1 second. note: they then open upon ignition starting.) Thanks Michael for the awesome opportunity to purchase one of these the transaction was awesome and instructions made it simple... Contact Michael HERE for your questions and or purchase enquiries. Also Check out This thread in "BUY AND SELL" for addition info. Here are some videos of what it does.

  6. 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.

    Rcf Track Day + Top Gear

    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.
  11. What was the outcome of this. Fuel level sensor?

    Dealership Of Choice

    The people at dealerships are human too and not personal slaves. The attitude you have approaching the dealership will greatly impact your experience.
  14. 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.
  15. RotorRian. Do you still have a deal on this dash cam?
