  1. I've got a 2011 IS250 almost about to hit 60K mark, and i'm starting to worry about the dreaded carbon build up on these models. Honestly had i have done some more research on these cars, i would have gone for the350 instead, but its too late now. So i have read quite a few different stories about this issue, some saying that this problem is more widespread in the US due to the lower grade of fuel used there and so on, so i've come here. Has anyone dealt with this issue before in their 250? if so, at how many K's did it start giving you problems? I'm one who does very little driving with this car on a daily basis and i drive it like an old man at best, so when i discovered this issue online, i gave my car a good flogging around some corners and the amount of smoke visible in the rear view mirror was outstanding. Like a semi had just driven past, so i'm assuming my car already has some degree of carbon built up inside. What do you use to clean out the carbon if anything? Specific fuel additives or what not? Interested to hear some stories about this.
  2. That's exactly what it was. Re burned on a Sony DVD -R, with 0 issues!
  3. Hi I downloaded I believe its V21 off here quite some time ago and burned it to a DVD + disc, but its never been working reliably. What I mean is upon entering the search function, the system lags up and freezes sometimes for minutes on end. It eventually works and progresses, or it either gets so slow that I have to turn the car off as the whole NAV unit simply crashes. I'd like to know what the latest stable version of maps is, and if possible what format DVD it must be burned to? Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
  4. I’ll be picking up an IS250 pretty soon, but I’m STILL having trouble distinguishing between the models and respective features of this car. Being a Lexus newbie that I am, I can seem to identify 5 potential models: - Prestige - Sports - Sports Luxury - X - F Sport Firstly, am I correct in assuming that I have listed the models above from lowest class to highest class? If not, what would be the correct order? Secondly, there are so many different interior color options, but which would be my best bet of finding black on black? I’ve seen a few X models in black and red which I dislike. Ill be going for something 2010 -2013 if that makes any difference. Thanks all
