  1. They don’t match as the FSport is 356mm and normal IS350 or RC350 is 334mm in diameter.
  2. Cheers mate, yeah, I tried brakesdirect and the same result, around $1,300-$1,500, and DBA manufacture these on order only. I ended up ordering them from a Lexus dealership in UK, for $850 as above and are estimated to arrive tomorrow.
  3. Yeah, fair enough. But the ones which came with the car from factory lasted 45k, and assume are the same Textar brand. For RCF, I know that they come with Brembo which, as far as I know wears off quicker, and of course bcs it’s a heavier and more powerful car. Just wanted to share my experience while replacing the rotors. As you all may know the RC350 F Sport models have 2 piece front rotors 356mm. As this is an unusual and quite big size there are not too many aftermarket manufacturers making these rotors. I have researched for 2 weeks and visited multiple racing workshops and part
  4. They wanted to charge me but I didn’t accept to pay as they failed to find the issue. I was thinking to send them the photo as well.
  5. Hi all, I’ve just been quoted by Lexus to replace the front brake rotors and brake pads for $1,900. As this is a 2 piece rotor type I guess we can replace only the rotor and not the hat. additionally my brake pads worn off in 26,000km, which is weird. Did anyone go through the rotors replacement process, and what did you go for? Factory OEM or aftermarket? I found some DBA 5000 black edition same price as the Lexus OEM ones? did anyone replace two piece with one piece type rotors? any thoughts?
  6. Hi guys, sorry for the late response. i took it to Sydney City Lexus three times and they couldn’t confirm where the noise is coming from. finally I had some time and I removed the wheel and the brake calliper and there was a screw in between the calliper and the disk rotor. See photo below.
  7. IMG_9649.MOV Hi all, I recently started to hear a squeaky sound from the passenger front wheel after a long drive. It happened on all my last three long drives IMG_9649.MOV . Please refer attached video. Went to Lexus and they said pads, bearings and suspension are okay. did anyone experienced this before?
  8. Hi guys, I had a small issue with my new tyres and wanted to seek an advice on this forum. I recently replaced my tyres with a new set of Continental ContiSportCintact 5 as I found a good price, however the front tyres are XL (extra load) and rear are MO (Mercedes Original). Even if they fitted the sizes as per Lexus description the rear one has the sidewall shorter than not how it has to be, usually both should be around 93-94mm, but the rear is not, and it’s obviously visible, having the car leaning back words. Went back to the tyre shop and discussed with them and they agreed to r
  9. This is how I bought the car and negotiated the respraying of the bumper from the total price. I did some research and found Atlas Motors Body Works having good reviews , did anyone deal with them before?
  10. Thanks mate, it’s a bit too far. I’ll have to check something around Sydney, but I’ll give them a call and check ot out anyway.
  11. Thanks for the feedback guys. I’m from Sydney, please see the attached photo, the colour is Lava Mica Orange. I’m curious, can this mismatch be from factory?
  12. Hi guys, Just got a new car and the rear bumper has been repainted, unfortunately it has a different shade and it drives me insane. Does anyone know a very goog body &paint shop to repaint and to match the colour perfectly? cheers!
  13. Is there anyone who installed this on his Lexus Rc or Is350? I woukd like to hear it so see if it’s what I want. Thanks.
  14. Hi Guys, Is there anyone who changed the factory exhaust with a catback Invidia Q300? I'm interested in opinions and recommendation if worth the investment. Cheers.
