  1. If you have up to $20k to play with i would suggest you get the IS350 over the IS250. The IS250 is relatively underpowered and wont like hauling a trailer around weighing up to 1,500kg. The IS350 is considerably more powerful, does not suffer the carbon buildup issue the IS250 engine does, and with the extra power will make the car more effortless to drive on a daily basis.
  2. I did the same when i had my IS-F, but it was the drivers side. I purchased an entire new mirror assembly from ebay in the UK for around $300 and just used the glass portion off it.
  3. As i have now sold my IS-F i have the Bluetooth module linked above that i no longer have use for. As long as your car has an AUX port then you can use this device to play music via Bluetooth in your IS250, IS350 or IS-F. I got it for Christmas so its only 9 months old, and still works perfectly. I purchased a shorter AUX cable as the one that came with it was about 1m long and i only needed it to be about 15cm long as it was mounted in the centre console. Happy to provide both cables and you can choose where you want to mount it. $50 shoot me a message on here or text me zero four22 247 831
  4. Hi guys, So since selling my IS-F last month I have a few bits and pieces I am going to try and move on. Shoot me a text on zero four 22 247 831 or message me on here. 1) Set of 8x Brand new genuine Denso Iridium spark plugs to suit IS-F / RC-F. Part # IKBH20TT. Refer photos below. I believe these are also the same plugs used in the IS250 and IS350 but obviously you will have 2x spares. $110 + $10 postage 2) Stock IS-F exhaust system. I have the full header back exhaust including all nuts bolts etc. The exhaust was removed at approx 45,000km so it's got plenty of life left in it and has been stored in my garage since removal. Perfect for someone on a budget that might want to do a muffler delete or fit one of those exhaust cut out valves. $200 pickup only (Newcastle) due to size 2) **Spacers are SOLD** 15mm SCC bolt on hubcentric wheel spacers. Suits a bunch of Lexus models includes GS, IS, LS etc (refer list below). A full set of 4 with all bolts etc. These are very good quality SCC brand from Germany and are hubcentric to suit Lexus. No damage and nothing wrong with them - I simply removed them from the car before selling it. These cost me $541 (happy to provide invoice to the buyer) for all four delivered from Germany and are only 18 months old. These are the exact same ones I am selling: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SCC-Wheel-Spacers-2x15mm-14521S-for-Lexus-GS-IS-C-IS-II-IS-III-LFA-LS-NX-RC-RX-S/392403471094?hash=item5b5d11caf6:g:IVcAAOSw0eNdZvFN $250 + $10 postage for the full set Car Model Type Lexus GS GRL1_, GWL1_ Lexus GS GRS19_, UZS19_, GWS19_ Lexus GS UZS161, JZS160 Lexus IS C GSE2_ Lexus IS II GSE2_, ALE2_, USE2_ Lexus IS III GSE3_, AVE3_ Lexus IS I JCE1_, GXE1_ Lexus LFA LFA10_ Lexus LS UCF10 Lexus LS UCF20 Lexus NX AYZ1_ Lexus RC GSC1_, USC1_ Lexus RX GYL1_, GGL15, AGL10 Lexus RX MCU15 Lexus RX MHU3_, GSU3_, MCU3_ Lexus SC UZZ40_
  5. Have a look at PPE for the headers - you might change your mind once you see the price. As for exhausts, look at Invidia or Xforce, they both make exhausts for the IS350. Invidia is better quality though IMO.
  6. Thanks mate - the IS-F is now paid for in full and will be picked up on Monday. I have enjoyed the IS-F and my first experience with a V8, but really want to take a good chunk out of the mortgage over the next 5 years so the expensive (and rarely used) toy had to go. My replacement car is a 2008 Subaru Liberty GT Tuned by STI with 94,000km. One owner, in very good condition and all original. A much cheaper car, yet it will still satisfy my car enthusiast needs of wanting a fun to drive and somewhat rare car. I will do some mods to it (i can never leave any car alone) over my ownership time.
  7. If they offered a manual in the IS350 F Sport then i would have perhaps considered one, but they don't exactly raise my pulse otherwise. I miss turbo and manual so that's what I am going back to for now.
  8. I have decided to downgrade - simply to put some extra cash on the mortgage as i don't need a car at all. So i have given myself a budget of approx $20k and am looking at the Subaru Liberty GT Tuned by STI which i have always liked ever since they were brand new. I have never owned a Subaru, but have always wanted a WRX, so the Liberty is basically a classier (but heavier) WRX with a bit of extra weight.
  9. Yeah i do like the ability to have the Smartbox functions on the nav screen. Looks good.
  10. I had quite a bit of interest on mine. I had it advertised on Facebook marketplace for about a month and on here (waste of time on here due to such low traffic and most users already have an IS-F) and had i think 4 or 5 people contact me through Facebook about it. Nobody serious though...lowballers, tyre kickers and people wanting swaps etc. Then 2 weeks ago i decided to get a bit more serious and put it on CarSales. My first inquiry came in about 4 hours after my ad was approved and i had about 6-7 inquiries over the 2 weeks. The problem with selling a car privately is always getting someone to actually come and have a look at the car, especially when i live in Newcastle and pretty much every inquiry i had was from someone in Sydney or Melbourne or Brisbane. Anyway, late last week i got an inquiry from a guy in Sydney, who asked a few things about the car, then arranged to come up and have a look/drive etc this week. And he loved it and gave me a deposit there and then. The sale is still pending while he finalises his finance, but he assures me all would be ok.
  11. Good find mate. The bonnet struts on my IS-F were buggered when i bought it and i bought some cheapies off ebay. They worked ok for perhaps 1 year but they are stuffed again now. The boot ones are also buggered but it never really bothered me enought to replace them. Sachs make good quality parts so im sure their struts are no different. If i hadnt just sold my car i would have bought some.
  12. Deposit taken today - first person who actually came to look at the car bought it. He is also a car enthusiast and has promised to take good care of her. Sydney folks might see my car rolling around the north shore from now on. It's been a fantastic car and ill be sad to see it drive off with someone else, but you got to do what you got to do. I will be buying another car i have always liked (not Lexus), although a good deal cheaper than the IS-F so the extra money will be going off the mortgage.
  13. Still driving nicely too i presume? These cars have aged really well IMO and they still look nice.Have you got the 2J or the V8 engine in this one?
