  1. Same Guy on ebay is also selling previous versions and also claiming the disc came out of a smashed car. Im stating the obvious that theyre all copies and he's printing labels but most of the poor folk buying them would think theyre originals. And its a good earn for him too, would cost him 50 cents for a blank disc, id say his profit is about 90% on each disc. And he's sold hundreds. I emailed asking him how he can offer a discount on multiple discs when he has only one but he didn't reply of course.
  2. Theres a bloke on ebay selling what he claims is version 25 of the toyota/lexus navigation disc and that it was removed from a smashed car. Funny thing is he's offering a discount if you buy two, and another discount if you buy three, etc. Its got to be a copy if he can offer discounts on multiple buys. I dont think its clicked with him that someone might just pick up on that fact
  3. Im guessing my first step would be ringing a lexus service centre and getting them to give me their prognosis. Any alternative suggestions?
  4. So the missus comes home and says theres something wrong with the car when she brakes. I take it for a drive , shifts fine, but when you brake slowly coming to a stop, at about 10kph theres a sudden clunk twice and the car stops very quickly without any further pressure on the brakes. Also the engine icon light has come on as has the red triangle exclamation mark, AND the check vsc light. Im fearing the transmission has had it. Any thoughts people? Its done just over 160,000k. Im in sydney as well, Thanks!
  5. Just thought id mention it thou its probably been posted before. My mechanic said my coolant level was low and said it was due to a rubber seal on the radiator cap falling off and consequently not sealing the system. Ive read about this on a couple of overseas forums and it appears to be a common problem. Could be an easy explanation for coolant loss as opposed to something more nasty. Thou im wondering where the bit that fell off disappeared to. Probably in the radiator somewhere, but at least its not causing any overheating issues, fingers crossed. Cheers!
  6. I booked my 2007 250 in three weeks ago and the earliest i appointment i could get was feb 24

  8. A loud clunking noise everytime i go over a bump and the shock on the rear drivers side is bottoming out and leaking.
  9. Hello All, Please don't chastise me i know ive sinned but i overloaded my boot on my is250 with pavers recently and appears ive stuffed the rear shocks. Can anyone give a rough figure what its gonna cost me to replace the rear pair and any suggestions? Thanks!
  10. Must be extremely frustrating and annoying considering it’s less than three years old and still under warranty. Looks like the dealers giving you the runaround, I’d agree with you and go to fair trading and start a complaint. I’d also inform the dealer this is what you’re going to do unless it’s either fixed or you’re giving a replacement vehicle. They should be able with the diagnostic tools at their disposal to determine the problem
  11. I had a similar problem for ages in that the gps worked for a couple days or even a week then would get lost and as you state say you were somewhere else. In the top left hand corner of your screen where there is a little compass, do you have the letters gps showing? I didn't have these letters showing and apparently if there not showing you're not picking up a satellite signal and thats what was causing my issue. I ended up pulling the unit out and discovered the cable for the gps antenna was disconnected. This cable is at the very base of the unit and its hard to see but its the lowest cabl
