  1. Modified 5.0L V8 Lexus making approximately 300kw/400hp at the wheels with long rego. Selling my much loved and unique Starlight Black MY11 Lexus ISF - $46,990 ono This car has been an absolute joy to own and has provided me with over 5 years of trouble-free and amazing driving experiences. Not just your average Lexus, the ISF is the V8 416hp BMW M3 competitor which marries style, luxury and performance into one exciting 4-door sports sedan. This ISF has the following modifications and additions: - Ceramic coat paint protection by Obsessed Car Detailing - JoeZ air intake - JoeZ PTS exhaust system - Novel equal length headers (worth approx. $8000) - Tuning Tech FS ECU tune - Throttle Controller Kit - Genuine WALD carbon fibre rear diffuser - Genuine WALD rear wing – custom body molded to bootlid and rear quarter panels raised to form uniform line – approx. $3000 total cost for body work and paint. - Genuine MY14 Lexus Led Fog lights - Figs Engineering Lower arm rear bushing for handling and prevents tyre wear - Satellite Navigation maps updated to 2017 maps - 4 new Michelin Pilot Super Sports tyres fitted in mid 2017 - Major service and new battery fitted Nov 2017 - Long rego until October 2018 - Original parts available Being an MY11 model it has these changes vs cheaper MY10 models: - Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) included as part of headlight - Improved suspension (smoother ride) - Limited Slip Differential - Updated dashboard and steering wheel layout As you can see, no expense has been spared with the quality of modifications. This setup is good for approximately 400hp/300kw at the wheels and transforms the car into a much more capable and fun drive, the exhaust note alone will draw comparisons to exotic cars, it has to be heard to be believed, yet still remains fairly quiet when not under hard acceleration. The car has always been garaged, serviced at required intervals (with full logbook available), and never driven on the track. Most of the driving was long distance and I’ve enjoyed every minute of ownership. No finance owing or accident history. Located Newcastle, NSW, please message me if you have any questions
  2. Hi Everyone, I joined a few months ago but this forum is pretty quiet so i haven't had much of an opportunity to interact with you all yet. I thought i would put up some information about my IS-F which i purchased in June 2017 and my story about the purchase experience and my time with the car so far. **PHOTOS TO COME** Previous car history (cars worth mentioning anyway) in case it is of interest to anyone: 2007 S14 series 2 200sx (lightly modified 170rwkw) – no build thread 2001 S15 200sx (slightly more modified, around 185rwkw) – no build thread 2011 VW Golf R (spent a bomb on this one, 208awkw (all wheel drive). Max power with standard turbo) – Golf R build thread 2010 VW Golf GTI (also went a bit crazy on this one, 161fwkw. Max power with standard turbo) Another example of the lengths I go with detailing a grotty 2nd hand car (this one was really grotty inside) – GTI build thread I starting browsing IS-F’s as well as a heap of other cars on my short list (E92 M3, C63 AMG, Audi S4 etc) on Carsales early 2017, but didn’t get serious until I decided to advertise my Golf GTI in May 2017. After having 4x turbocharged 4 cylinder cars and being a huge petrol head, I had always wanted a nice V8 to see what all the fuss is about. A Ford Falcon XR8 or SS Commondore just wanst going to do it for me because of how common they are, and also the general bogan crowd they attract. So I decided (after lots of research on my short list of cars) to concentrate my efforts on a Lexus IS-F and enjoy the fruits of Japanese engineering (eg reliability) as there were some horror stories around on the M3 and AMG Merc’s. I also have a few mates who are huge Toyota nuts (eg in their eyes, no other car manufacturer exists other than Toyota – im talking GT-4’s, Supra’s, Chasers, Mark II’s etc) and they vouched for virtually impeccable reliability of the IS-F. The Golf GTI sold to the first person who looked at it (funnily enough they flew down from Brisbane to buy it and drove it home) and there I was without a car within a very short space of time (I wasn’t expecting the GTI to sell so quickly so it caught me off guard). Luckily my parents were overseas for 2 months and my dad was kind enough to allow me to use his trusty 2008 Subaru Outback for about a month until I found my IS-F. There were only 2x IS-F’s for sale in Newcastle when I was looking – one was a MY13, immaculate but out of my budget by a good $10k and not my preferred colour (it was black). There was also another black one, a MY11 but it had 180,000kms, and although the price was reflective of the km’s, I didn’t want a car with that many km’s on it. I looked at a few IS-F’s in Sydney (a white one, a dark grey one and a blue one) but either I didn’t like/trust the owners or the car wasn’t up to my (fussy) standards. In my opinion, a lot of these cars seem to have been lease cars and generally mistreated by the owners (poor quality paintwork, heavily worn seats/bolsters, full of stone chips etc etc). I understand that im buying a 2nd hand car that’s 5-6 years old, and that it wouldn’t be perfect, but it needed to pass a certain level of criteria in my opinion. The fact that I wanted a MY11 onwards (to get the LSD, updated dash, and updated suspension) meant I had to rule out a heap of the older cars advertised. I started looking more broadly to include the whole east coast, figuring I could fly to Melbourne or Brisbane etc, and drive it home. Long story short, I found a pretty decent car (not perfect, but none of them seemed to be) in Brisbane. A MY11, 42,000km, 1 owner, blue exterior with black interior, no accidents, full service history. $58k. This was a little higher than I realistically wanted to spend (I had set my budget to $55k) but knowing I could always negotiate a few grand off, I had a cheque drawn up for $51k, and with a few extra thousand dollars in my savings accounts (for the negotiating), i booked a flight and off I went to Brisbane with my wife on a Saturday morning. We got to the dealership shortly after they opened at about 8.40am and the salesman was drying off the IS-F after having hosed it off (he knew we were coming to have a look at it….but I didn’t tell him we were coming from another city, let alone another state). First impressions…..not happy Jan. Geez car salesman are good at telling bullsh!t to you. I spoke to this guy several times both via email and phone and asked so many questions relating to the condition of the car and stated to him that I was an ex-professional detailer and that I would spot any issues. “The paintwork is great” he told me, “the wheels are perfect” he said, “no scratches on the body” he proclaimed. All the paintwork on the car was original (so no resprays and no accidents) and it was dent free, but it hadn’t been “loved” that’s for sure. Stone chips on the front bumper and bonnet were minimal – indicating the car had likely been city driven for most of it’s 42,xxx km’s. Looks like it has been washed at a carwash it whole life. Bird poo had eaten into the clearcoat on the bonnet (just in one spot up near the windscreen). Heaps of scratches around the door handles from finger nails/jewellery etc. Nothing a good detail cant sort out, but frustrating anyway. Turns out the “1 owner” was an accounting firm, so no doubt the car was a tax write off. The two rear rims had gutter damage (one of them had considerable gutter rash….i was told they were perfect). The original brakes were very worn (heavy grooves in the disks and looked like no pad material was left, and upon closer inspection, the wear indicators had been bent out of the way. I already knew the brakes on these cars are generally due for replacement between 40,000-60,000km depending on driving conditions, so not only was I prepared that the car may need its brakes done, I had looked up pricing for disks and pads and knew what kind of money it was going to cost. Apart from being a bit grotty on the main contact points (steering wheel etc), the interior was generally clean and good condition. Nothing a good detail cant sort out anyway. I think the main driver of the car was actually a woman I wanted to take it for a drive….naturally as with any car you are considering to buy. In we jump, start her up (such a nice deep sound) and off we go. It drives like a dream, smooth, quiet, no squeaks or rattles. Everything works (stereo, a/c, power windows etc) which is always important to check. Put my foot down a few times and it goes really nicely and sounds great. Despite how worn out the brakes are, the brakes still work well, are smooth and no noises. I love the car and how it drives………damn……..now have an emotional connection with it!!! Service history……15,000km service was done at Lexus Brisbane. Then nothing………no 30,000km, but just before the car was traded in (with 42,xxxkm) it was serviced once again at Lexus. This was the most frustrating aspect about the whole ordeal because I had specifically asked about the service history (and also asked for photos/photocopy of the log book) but was told “it’s got full Lexus history” and looking back at the situation, he always had an excuse as to why he couldn’t send me the log book details. Feeling pretty frustrated and disheartened about the service history and some of the exterior wear and tear, I walked away to have a think about the situation without the salesman hanging around with his cheesy grin. I wanted to weight up the pros and cons for a few minutes. Pros: It was the colour I preferred (I wanted either silver or blue with blue being my #1 choice) Very low km’s No accidents or damage or rust (all original paint and bodywork) 1 owner car Drove beautifully Near new tyres (Bridgestone Potenza RE050) all round Cons: Not as tidy as I was hoping for and not what I was led to expect Somewhat sketchy service history (although very low km’s travelled so im inclined to let this one slide a bit). I also looked as best I could inside the engine (via oil filler cap) and everything was squeaky clean (no buildup) Brakes need replacing ASAP Will have to do another oil change (and engine flush) to satisfy my somewhat OCD nature Bird poo clearcoat issue on bonnet 1x rim in particular with a big gutter rash mark (a good 20-25cm scratch) which would need to be fixed I decided that if I could get the car for $55k or lower that I would take it (it was advertised at $57,990) and drive it home. I went in low at $52k and explained to Mr Salesman why I was offering that price (see cons listed above). He denied the price and counter offered $56.5k taking into account the brakes needing replacing but would not acknowledge the other issues. I came back and offered $53k and said that I didn’t think the car was worth any more than this price. He declined, we said thanks and bye, and my wife and I turned around and walked out. We stood across the road for 5 mins while we waited for an Uber and off we went to have a look at another IS-F I had lined up as a backup. A MY10 IS-F in Matador Red. Looked great in the photos and the description said all the right things………turns out it was also a disappointment. What do you have to do to find a nice IS-F!!!!! So we had a whole day to kill before our flight home. My wife and I had made our way to a shopping centre. My phone rings, it’s the salesman with the blue IS-F we looked at earlier. He says make it $55k and we have a deal. I said $54k is all im offering as it’s not worth any more than this. “Let me chat to my boss” he says…..muffled conversation follows for 30 seconds….”ok, we will take $54k but im not happy about it” he says. “Im loosing money on that car”. What a load of *BLEEP* im thinking, I have 2x brothers in the luxury car industry (Lexus and Audi) and they both said they would have traded that car for high $40’s. They spent $0 on this particular car as the car had not been detailed, the rims were scratched and the bird poo on the bonnet. So $54k is the price – “get the paperwork ready, we will be there in 30 mins” I said. We hit the road at around midday once all this had taken place, we drove until dark and pulled in at Coffs Harbour for the night. Not sure about you guys, but I find the cruise control fiddly to use and the stalk is in a weird position. The car also has a narrow windscreen and not much headroom – funny you don’t notice these things until you have driven the cars for a few hours. Pissing down rain the whole way it was. The car drove like a dream despite the horrible weather. By about midday the following day the car was at home in Newcastle with around 43,200km on the clock now, we unpacked all our stuff and off I go starting to clean it up (still raining and more rain forecast for another few days….so im not going for a full detail just yet). I just wanted to see if I could remove or reduce some of the marks on the paintwork (mainly the scratches near the door handles from fingernails and jewellery) which looked horrible. And I wanted to see if there was anything I could do to make the bird poo stain on the clearcoat look better. Short term win Scratches on door handles basically invisible now after some polishing Scratches on the rear bumper are now basically invisible after a 2 step machine polish Rear rim which had a long gutter rash has now been repaired and the damage is gone ($120 repair) Ran a Nulon engine flush and drained the oil. Re filled with 9.4 litres of Penrite HPR 5w-40 full synthetic and a genuine oil filter and sump plug washer Fitted my AFE drop in filter and HPS silicone intake tube which I had purchased before I even got the car Short term fail Bird poo etching in the clear coat isn’t going anywhere. That will need some attention by a spraypainter….hopefully they can just re-do the clear coat as the blue base coat appears undamaged. Brakes are now squealing like mad. New disks and pads have been ordered but the disks are on backorder with DBA for several weeks. While im waiting for the brakes to turn up, I had to get the car blueslipped as it had QLD rego and QLD numberplates. I was nervous about the Blueslip because of the brakes, but I showed them proof that I had indeed purchased new brakes just in case, but the car passed the Blueslip without a hitch….even with the squealing brakes. By now, the rain had gone and so I started what would end up being around 25-30hrs of detailing on the car. Wash, decontamination (iron remover and clay bar), 3x step machine polish then a final sealant. Wheels removed and the car up on axle stands, cleaned thoroughly behind spokes and barrels to remove 43,500km of brake dust. Cleaned wheel arches (so much brake dust had made its way onto all of the suspension arms/springs etc) and all suspension and braking components I could reach. Callipers were filthy – obviously never been cleaned. Engine bay cleaned. Leather seats cleaned and treated with a conditioner to protect against wear and sun damage. All interior vinyl and carpet cleaned. Many hours later (and spread over several days) it was looking really good. And finally my brakes have turned up so its time to get them fitted. DBA X Gold disks (slotted and cross drilled) and Winmax W1 street pads. Cleaning a dirty car is actually really satisfying and rewarding – you don’t get that same feeling with a well maintained car because you don’t get the dramatic before and after effect. Wow – have a look at her now!!!! My sore back, sore arms and shoulders and scuffed knees are all worth it once I rolled the car out of the garage and into the sunshine. Isn’t she pretty. The blue paintwork is popping, all the swirls and scratches have vanished and the paint has this beautiful depth to it now and it is so shiny. The only downside to the car visually now is that 1x damn spot on the bonnet where the bird poo has worn through the clear coat…..otherwise its virtually flawless. Time to enjoy the car for a few months and getting to learn all of its strengths and weaknesses. It’s a nice car to drive, smooth and relatively comfy despite the sport suspension and big rims, and I like the dual personality of the engine with the induction noise above 3,500rpm with that dual mode intake airbox. Fuel consumption isn’t great (it is a decent sized v8 after all) but it’s not as bad as I was expecting. I think the small fuel tank (my Golf had the same size tank) makes the car feel like its worse on fuel than it actually is….im lucky if I get 300km from a tank (mostly shortish drives around town) whereas it was nearly double that on the freeway when driving back from QLD. Nobody (and I mean nobody) knows what the car is either. Your typical Aussie XR6 Turbo and V8 bogans have no idea what it is and certainly don’t expect it to have a V8, and most Euro car lovers turn their noses up at it because it’s not a latte sipping, selfie taking, latest fashion wearing even though it looks *BLEEP*ing ridiculous Audi, BMW or Merc. And anyone who thinks they know something about cars (but actually doesn’t really) just says it’s a fancy Toyota. Ok yes, some Lexus’ over the years have literally been a rebadged and somewhat glorified Camry (ES300 anyone…) but the IS-F has no equivalent in the Toyota range. Its rare, unique and subtle. Time for some mods…… X-force header-back exhaust (sounds great but a little too loud for my liking – will look at ways to quieten it down 20-30%) Bonnet struts replaced (old ones were very stiff) Billet alloy oil filler cap with F logo from USA 15mm SSC wheel spacers (good quality German made ones….not cheap ebay Chinese junk) Gutted cats in the headers Carbon fibre roof spoiler Superpro replacement LCA bushes Bayson-R front lip (black plastidipped and actually looks really good) Blacked-out front grill 5D carbon fibre wrap for the interior trim to replace the tacky silver carbon fibre. RR Racing o2 sensor conditioner (I’ve had the check engine light come on 3 times now in the past few months and the car goes into a semi-limp mode (starts off in 2nd gear etc) so I want to stop this from happening) StopTech braided brake lines Will also another engine flush and oil change soon also to ensure all the old oil is long gone (so car had an oil change by Lexus at 42k, then by me at 45k, and now ill do another one at around 48k). Might be overkill, but it’s a relatively small cost (and I can do the work myself) to ensure the engine is in tip top shape. Not a mod as such, but I want to put the car on my local dyno to see what its making (same place I used for my Golf’s, they have an AWD Mainline dyno). I wish I had dyno’d the car completely stock, then with the intake, then with the x-force exhaust, then with the gutted headers…….but oh well. Hoping it somewhere around 250-260kw at the wheels. Researching (but not getting too far due to unclear information) about how I can possibly update the HVAC and stereo section of the dash. I would love to fit this kit along with a nice double din stereo with Apple Carplay but apparently these kits do not work with models with factory navigation and also do not work with the Mark Levison amp and stereo. I have enquired with the manufacturer of the dash kit (Stinger Australia) but turns out they don’t actually make the kit and you can but it from USA for less than ½ the price. I have also enquired with 2x local car stereo shop and neither of them that assure me the kit will work. Im not a fan of the Grom or Beat Sonic solutions so looks like im stuck with the daggy and outdated factory dash unless someone knows of another option.

  7. The Lexus LC coupe is in contention for two of the 2018 World Car Awards, being one of three finalists announced for both the World Performance Car and Car Design of the Year titles. A panel of 82 automotive industry journalists from around the globe will determine the ultimate winners, to be announced at the New York International Auto Show on 13 April. The LC, launched in summer 2017, is a flagship coupe for Lexus. Its radical styling broadcasts Lexus’s future design thinking and has already earned the model a distinguished EyesOn Design award at last year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The LC was also named best coupe in the 2018 UK Car of the Year Awards. The LC’s engineering is every bit as advanced as its design. It is available with a choice of two powertrains: the LC 500h uses a petrol-electric hybrid V6 powertrain equipped with Lexus’s new Multi-Stage Hybrid System, while the LC 500 is powered by a naturally aspirated 471bhp V8 engine, coupled to the world’s first 10-speed direct shift automatic transmission.

    Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept

    Lexus established the luxury crossover segment two decades ago with the global debut of the RX 300 at Detroit. It remains the top-selling luxury crossover despite nearly 50 competitors that have since entered the segment The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept introduces a new genre of luxury vehicle: the flagship crossover. Combining high performance with unrestrained luxury, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless is a showcase of technology, innovation and the latest evolution of design at Lexus. The innovative spirit of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept was created at CALTY Design Research in California. The design language is rooted in the simple yet elegant design concept dubbed “molten katana”. This design visualization fuses the organic shapes of liquid metal with the sharp edges of a traditional Japanese sword. Imagining that shift from a smooth, flowing mass into a solid, chiselled shape formed the basis for the fluid, yet aggressive design of the LF-1 Limitless concept. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #1 CABIN DESIGN: COMFORT IS KING “This is our vision for a new kind of flagship vehicle that embraces crossover capability without giving up the performance and luxury delivered by today’s top sedans,” said Kevin Hunter, President, CALTY Design Research Inc. “The LF-1 Limitless concept incorporates imaginative technology while creating a strong emotional connection by improving the human experience for the driver and passengers.” Maximum comfort for every passenger was CALTY’s goal for the cabin. The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept adheres to the Japanese tradition of Omotenashi, or hospitality, welcoming all who enter with equal enthusiasm. The front passenger space is far more open, with even fewer controls and a wide unobstructed dashboard. Those in the back get the same seats as those in front with expansive legroom and individual display screens for adjusting the climate control or entertainment options. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #2 INTERIOR LIGHT: TWINKLE, TWINKLE, IT'S A STAR! Lighting plays a key role in the look and feel of the interior of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept. Engaging the START button initiates a dramatic lighting sequence of ambient light based on which of the several available driving modes is engaged. For a more subtle effect, the wooden door trim has tiny perforations that allow indirect light from miniature LEDs to shine and twinkle in a variety of colours. This lighting creates beautiful movement in the interior that complement the more direct overhead lights. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #3 SPINDLE GRILLE: LET ME SEE YOUR GRILLE! Like all current Lexus models, the spindle grille on the LF-1 Limitless concept is a core element to the overall design. On the LF-1 Limitless concept, it’s been taken even further, with details that suggest the start of the spindle form at the rear of the vehicle that then continues forward toward the nose. The grille itself features a three-dimensional design with colours developed in-house by CALTY. Ridges radiating away from the central emblem suggest magnetism guiding metal filings into shape. There is no chrome, as the LF-1 Limitless concept instead uses LED lighting around the grille that greets you on arrival. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #4 GLASS SURFACE DESIGN: THE ROOF TO INSPIRE The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept takes the popular crossover genre and heightened sense of performance while challenging traditional crossover SUV proportions and styling. The concept’s long hood and powerful stance give it the look of a performance sedan while maintaining the higher ride height and versatile functionality that have made crossovers the preferred choice for so many of today’s customers. Using a large glass surface as the roof helps enhance the appeal of this concept and draws attention to the interior design. The interior involves bright, modern metallic finishes and LED lighting treatments to create an enticing cabin. Gazing through the large glass roof reveals a realm of imagination and inspiration that is driving the future of the luxury crossover category. As the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept has not been confirmed for future production development, the use of glass on this model is entirely exploratory. LF-1 SPECIFICATIONS LENGTH 197.4 inches - 5014 mm WIDTH 78.2 inches - 1986 mm HEIGHT 63.2 inches - 1605 mm WHEELBASE 117.1 inches - 2974 mm

    Engine mounts

    Hi all, Just curious if anyone has heard about RR releasing these or if anyone has taken the plunge in ordering them? http://www.rr-racing.com/RR-Racing-Engine-Mounts-for-Lexus-ISF-RCF-GSF-p/isfengmt01.htm As the sub-frame needs to be dropped for an easy install, its ideal to fit them during a header install (wish they had these late last year when i got mine fitted), ah well. According to RR, most of the headers they fit to the early ISF's, well the majority had shot engine mounts so just curious if anyone else has had issues or know if they have worn engine mounts.

    RC 300h F SPORT BLACK EDITION

    New RC 300h F Sport Black Edition coupe, featuring dramatic and exclusive exterior and interior styling features Colouring evokes the deep and rich black of sumi, the traditional ink for Japanese brush painting and calligraphy Black stainless steel window frame mouldings, matt black 19-inch F Sport alloy wheels and new dark chrome spindle grille and circular front fog light bezels Interior finished with black wood trim inserts, coloured using sumi ink, and smooth black leather upholstery with contrast orange stitching Available exclusively with a Graphite Black metallic paint finish The athletic lines of the Lexus RC 300h F Sport coupe are given dramatic added visual impact in a special new Black Edition model, which will go on sale 1 May following its appearance at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. As its name declares, the Black Edition emphasises a dynamic and stealthy look with a range of new black styling elements, inspired by the dense colour of Japanese sumi ink, used for centuries in traditional brush painting and calligraphy. The F Sport spindle grille, with its graduated “L” motif mesh pattern, has a new dark chrome finish, as do the new-design, circular LED fog lights, positioned on the margins of the lower grille section, adding to the car’s powerful front lighting signature. The 19-inch F Sport alloy wheels have a contrast matt black and bright machined finish, while the window mouldings are in black stainless steel, toning smartly with the coupe’s Graphite Black metallic paintwork. In the cabin, the F Sport seats and steering wheel are upholstered in smooth black leather, with detailing picked out in vibrant orange stitching – an eye-catching detail that is also applied to the inner door panels.

    LEXUS UX URBAN COMPACT CROSSOVER

    These first visuals reveal the UX’s bold and stylish SUV-inspired design, which combines powerful bodywork with a condensed look. Its crossover credentials are signalled by muscular wings and haunches and a high beltline, but under the skin an all-new platform gives the UX exceptional body rigidity and a low centre of gravity to deliver the agile handling of a hatchback. The scene inside the cabin presents a highly focused driver’s cockpit, a wide and inviting passenger space and a commanding view of the road. With its brave design, superior craftsmanship and imaginative technology features, the UX will offer strong appeal as a gateway model to the Lexus luxury brand in a dynamic and growing part of the market. The Lexus press conference, with the new Head of Lexus Europe, Pascal Ruch, and the UX Chief Engineer Chika Kako, will take place at 10am on 6 March on the Lexus stand in Hall 4 at Palexpo.

    Long Live the King

    Lexus is once again taking part in advertising’s biggest day of the year in the USA with a commercial ready to air during TV coverage of the Super Bowl on Sunday (4 February). This week it has released an extended, minute-long digital version of the ad, created in partnership with Marvel Studios’ new movie Black Panther. The spot, Long Live the King, pairs the new LS 500 F Sport flagship luxury saloon with the Black Panther, portrayed by Chadwick Boseman. Long Live the King depicts how the character T’Challa, in his guise as Black Panther, goes about recovering a stolen batch of vibranium, a mythical ore found only in his home nation of Wakanda. At the same time, he is due to represent his country as its king at a world leadership conference. The Lexus LS 500 F Sport is the only vehicle both powerful and luxurious enough to keep pace with a superhero and provide suitable transport for a monarch. “There is an authentic match between the duality of both the Black Panther and the LS,” said Cooper Ericksen, Lexus Vice President of Marketing. “The spot uses the Black Panther’s life as a superhero and as royalty to show the two sides of the LS: performance and luxury. Uniting the LS with Black Panther on advertising’s biggest stage was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.” The soundtrack for the ad is Legend Has It, by Run the Jewels, from the Run the Jewels 3 album, which debuted at No1 in Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop chart for physical album releases. “This spot feels beautifully cinematic from start to finish,” said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships and Marketing. “With a character as important as Black Panther and a brand as iconic as Lexus, we knew that we had to rise to the occasion by creating something unforgettable. It’s a climactic moment for all of us as we come together to celebrate this wonderful collaboration and enjoy the big game.” Long Live the King, directed by Samuel Bayer, incorporates actual footage from the film—notably, of Letitia Wright as T’Challa’s sister, Shuri—and features many of the film’s actors, plus a cameo appearance by the Lexus LC luxury coupe. Original costumers and members of the technical crew were also recruited for the shoot, including fight choreographer Jonathan (JoJo) Eusebio. Shooting took place at night in downtown LA, using a custom lighting unit and VFX work was undertaken by the Luma studio, responsible for some of the special effects in the movie. The Super Bowl spot is part of a robust collaboration between Lexus and Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. It includes the Black Panther-themed event at Comic-Con International: San Diego after-hours last July, and an original graphic novel created with Marvel Custom Solutions, Black Panther: Soul of a Machine, introduced at Comic-Con. The entire graphic novel is now available to read online . In October, ahead of the SEMA after-market show in Las Vegas, Lexus unveiled a 2018 limited-edition LC Inspiration Series production car that will go on sale in the USA this spring, and a custom concept coupe dubbed the Black Panther Inspired LC. In addition, a co-branded Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Lexus TV spot debuted on 22 January. Lexus’s collaboration with Marvel Studios and the creation of the two spots are being executed by Lexus’s multicultural agency, Walton Isaacson. This is the fourth time Lexus has appeared in the Super Bowl, following its 2017 ad Man and Machine, and spots during the 2015 and 2012 games.

  15. All, Is anyone even remotely interested in a group buy for the latest V23 maps? If we get enough prospective buyers, we can transfer funds to the nominated buyer's PayPal. The other option would be of course to wait until someone leaks the V23 DVD in which case old mate Bazzle would probably find it. I've made a list of all V23 packages that I could find so far; 1. navshop au - AUD295 - https://navshop.com.au/collections/lexus 2. navigationau - AUD200 - http://www.navigationau.com/toyota-lexus-navigation-disks.html (site is kinda dodgy considering that they're not accepting PayPal. They only seem to accept a direct bank transfer). UPDATE - DO NOT PURCHASE FROM HERE. 3. eBay - AUD200 - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/V23-2017-Toyota-Lexus-Denso-NAVIGATION-map-DISC-Australia-NZ/302416153562?hash=item4669684bda:g:VBsAAOSwImRYX3p1 (seller only accepts a local pick-up from Armidale unfortunately) What do all the Lexians think?
  16. Gathering numbers to see if anyone would like to do a group buy... These dashcam retails for $749 in Australia depending on number of people gathered the price should be under $599 AUD http://www.thinkware.com/Products/Dashcam/F770 Product Description THINKWARE F770 HD DASH CAMERA 32GB KIT – FULL HD 1080P FRONT & REAR + HARDWIRE KIT Front & Rear ALL FULL HD Super Night Vision / Time Lapse Road Safety Warning System / Safety Camera Alert 1080p Full HD & Full HD 2CH / 30fps / Advanced Video Clear Technology / Built-in Wi-Fi / Built-in GPS / DUAL SAVE® (Internal BackuUp Memory) SUPER NIGHT VISION Videos recorded by a dash cam in a low light environment such as dark alleyway or underground parking lot can pose difficulties when you try to accurately identify information from the image. SUPER NIGHT VISION employs the new ISP (Image Signal Processing) technology and the real-time image processing function to bring 10 times brighter images than our earlier models when recorded under nighttime parking mode. TIME LAPSE Important clips and images may get deleted due to insufficient memory space during long continuous recordings, especially in standard parking recording mode which requires large memory for saving 15 to 30 frames per second. TIME LAPSE MODE in the F770 records 1 frame per second reducing the size of the video file. This allows video recordings in parking mode to continue up to 16 times longer than other dash cams. *Parking recording mode can be activated upon installing the F770 with the hardwiring cable provided. FRONT AND REARVIEW FULL HD RECORDINGS CMOS Image Sensors allow constant front and rearview Full 1080p HD resolution recording during both daytime and nighttime along with a 140-degree wide angle lens view. This will minimize blind spots to assure recording of all events without fail. ***THINKWARE DASH CAM F770 FULL HD rearview camera is included in this listing.*** STATE OF THE ART VIDEO ENHANCEMENT TECHNOLOGY THINKWARE DASH CAMs are equipped with top-notch video enhancement technology on the market, ensuring the most vivid video recordings under any circumstance. WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or getting under the shadow of a tall building etc, a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels can result in excessively bright or dark recordings. The WDR function eliminates excessively bright spots on the recording to correct its color balance in order to ensure a clear image. NIGHTTIME PICTURE QUALITY CORRECTION Images from the videos recorded during nighttime driving on dark streets are generally difficult to make out. The enhancement Sensors of THINKWARE DASH CAMs come with a standard function of brightness and color control as well as noise cancellation. AUTOMATIC EXPOSURE A sudden rise of light exposure caused by strong sunlight or headlight beams of oncoming vehicle may cause difficulties to assess the situation. Also, lack of lighting in a dark tunnel or night driving may pose the same problem. The automatic light exposure function controls the level of light exposure to maintain vivid and clear video recordings in all circumstances. ROAD SAFETY WARNING SYSTEM The THINKWARE DASH CAM F770 is equipped with the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and the Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) to ensure driver safety with a voice warning. Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) Drowsy or distracted driving greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. The Land Departure Warning System will alert the driver when the vehicle goes off lane in a speed over 50 km/h. Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) The FCWS function calculates the average distance from the vehicle in front and alerts the driver in advance when reaching the range of safe breaking distance in order to prevent a collision. SAFETY CAMERA ALERT The THINKWARE DASH CAM F770’s internal GPS provides accurate location information while the Safety Camera Alert function is on continuous alert to warn the driver of red lights and traffic enforcement cameras. Cultivate safe driving habits with THINKWARE DASH CAM. RED LIGHT WARNING SYSTEM SPEED CAMERA WARNING SYSTEM RED LIGHT & SPEED CAMERA WARNING SYSTEM AVERAGE SPEED WARNING SYSTEM MOBILE ZONE WARNING SYSTEM VARIOUS AUTONOMOUS RECORDING MODES Continuous Recording Mode This mode is activated automatically when you start the car. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism. Event Recording Mode The Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store the video data ten seconds prior to and after a collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor. Manual Recording Mode Similar to a video camera, you can use the Manual Recording Mode to capture events that occur in front of your vehicle whether or not it is in motion. CONNECT YOUR SMART DEVICE TO YOUR DASH CAM WITH THE BUILT-IN WI-FI. You can easily control, manage files and configure the settings of your DASH CAM from your smart device with THINKWARE DASH CAM Mobile Viewer App. With the THINKWARE DASH CAM Mobile app and the built-in Wi-Fi, the F770 allows you a convenient viewing of real-time recordings as well as downloading, accessing, or deleting recorded videos on your mobile phone. VIEWER FOR CHECKING CLEAR AND PRECISE VIDEO The intuitive and simple-to-use interface of THINKWARE DASH CAM allows you an easy and convenient viewing of your recorded videos. Through PC or Mac viewer, you can playback and download recorded videos along with your route history and speed record. You can also change the dash cam settings, format the memory card, or install updates with just a few clicks on the viewer. COMPREHENSIVE DRIVING INFORMATION WITH GPS With the optional GPS Tracker, the THINKWARE DASH CAM F770 can record the vehicle's driving speed and provide its precise location and routes identification on the map. The GPS Tracker helps you to accurately assess the details of the surrounding area by providing you with the vehicle speed, the time of a collision, and the severity of impact. The video recording feature not only stores driving footages in case of an event, but it can also be used to track your holiday travel routes. TECHNOLOGYTHINKWARE DASH CAM’s benchmarking technology – The DUAL SAVE function records all events triggered by strong collisions onto the two separate memory systems: The Nand Flash internal memory and the Micro SD external memory. This function ensures that your recorded video will still be safely guarded in the internal Nand Flash in case the external MicoSD gets compromised. HIGH-TEMPERATURE PROTECTION SYSTEM The specially designed heat discharge construction and the built-in thermal sensor of the F770 protect the device and its data against intense heat by automatically turning it off to prevent overheating. FAIL-SAFE RECORDING In the event that the power gets disconnected after an accident, fail-safe recording uses the Super Capacitor for backup power to ensure safe storage of any recording in progress – so you can be assured that your valuable data will be securely stored under any circumstances.

  17. Hello everyone I would love some help here and would be so much appreciated. I, myself after a long time have finally purchased my Lexus and saved every cent for it to finally now be in disbelief of what it's like to own one now, when it comes to service. Everywhere I go to take it for a 75,000kms service are asking for $1,000 and above, no I tell a lie actually the cheapest was $950. I don't understand, is this normal or am I just being tripped because I am a female and they think that females are so dumb? I am incredibly sadned with how some of these mechanics have dealt with me and there prices. Can someone please refer me to a mechanic that deals with Lexus's and knows what they are doing and are honest?! Please, I will take it straight there! Please, anyone,?!!! I am in Sydney, Panania 2213 🙁Thanks so much

    LEXUS HYBRID – SIX REASONS TO DRIVE ONE

    Driving a Lexus hybrid is the intelligent choice of a discerning driver, as the world-leading Lexus Hybrid Drive is a perfect complement to Lexus’ hallmarks of stand-out styling, advanced design and expert craftsmanship. Here are six reasons why a Lexus hybrid is the right choice for you: 1) EFFORTLESS TO DRIVE Driving a Lexus hybrid is effortless: climb in, push the start button and go. Our full hybrid technology works seamlessly to deliver a smooth and refined driving experience without you giving it a moment’s thought. 2) GET INSTANT PERFORMANCE, EFFICIENTLY As our new LC 500h proves, our intelligent hybrid performance combines a powerful petrol engine with an efficient electric motor – the best of both worlds with no compromises. 3) LOW RUNNING COSTS Greater fuel efficiency from a Lexus hybrid keeps day-to-day running costs low and our hybrid system lowers servicing costs too. Business users will love its lower company and personal (Benefit-in-Kind) tax liability, offering the potential to save thousands over three years. 4) LOWER POLLUTION Hybrid engine technology limits carbon dioxide (CO2) and smog-forming nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, which has a positive impact on air quality – particularly in urban areas. 5) IT’S SOPHISTICATED AND RELIABLE Even the energy created by slowing down in a Lexus hybrid is cleverly utilised by capturing it, and storing it in batteries as you drive. As a result, you’ll never worry about finding a recharging point, or whether you have enough power to complete your journey. 6) IT’S ONE OF YOUR BEST ASSETS A Lexus hybrid depreciates less than its traditional counterparts so your existing Lexus is worth more when you come to upgrade. It’s another way that driving a Lexus hybrid makes sense. Which Lexus hybrid will you choose? Click here to find out Original article courtesy of Lexus UK

    LEXUS INTRODUCE NEW TECHNOLOGY

    Lexus will continue to explore new opportunities in design and technology in 2017, reshaping its image and customer perceptions with vibrant new models that display exciting styling, deliver a rewarding driving experience and benefit from cutting-edge engineering. Under the leadership of Akio Toyoda as its Chief Branding Officer and master driver, Lexus has the freedom and flexibility to take new directions, while retaining the luxury craftsmanship, attention to detail and unmatched customer service for which it is renowned the world over. Lexus’s intentions will be signalled right at the start of 2017 with the world debut of the fifth-generation LS flagship saloon at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This model will use a version of the Lexus new global architecture for luxury vehicles (G-AL) platform that also underpins the LC luxury coupe, which itself will reach the UK’s roads before the end of the year with both hybrid and V8 powertrains. The LC 500h also marks the first deployment of Lexus’s Multi-Stage Hybrid System, a landmark in the development of Lexus Hybrid Drive that promises to transform the driving experience with more direct response to driver commands and a higher level of dynamic performance. Within the established Lexus range, the New Year also brings the latest upgrades to the IS saloon, a million-selling model that remains firmly at the heart of the Lexus range. As well as styling enhancements, the IS has a revised suspension system that adopts lighter and more rigid components, plus detailed spring and shock absorber adjustments that deliver sharper handling, increased stability and greater ride comfort. As a pioneer of design excellence, Lexus will again support the best in innovation from around the world through the Lexus Design Award, with the finalists contributing to its presentation at Milan Design Week in April 2017.

    Service and repair manual

    Hi all, i have searched but not had much luck. What im after is a link to download the service and repair manual for my 2008 ISF. I have somehow misplaced it. Its the manual that outlines what is carried out each service. I have managed to find a downloadable link but its from the states so not sure how different it is to the Oz one. The service intervals are in miles too so im not sure what service interval to reference. i.e. 90000kms service or if miles, thats 56000 so do i refer to a service interval closer to that etc. Does anyone know of a Oz download link. This is what i did find but as said, in miles etc - http://drivers.lexus.com/t3Portal/document/omms-s/L-MMS-08ISF/pdf/L-MMS-08ISF.pdf Thanks
  24. Does anyone know if and where you can buy the latest Micro SD nav? Currently running version 25-33-14 (2013-01-01). What is the latest version?
  25. Due for replacement tyres after stock Bridgestone ER33, was a good tyre, lasted 60000km. Thinking either direct replacement of same or Bridgestone Potenza RE003, more of a performance tyre but concerned will wear quicker. Current 4th tyre free offer is enticing (around $900 for all fitted) What other options should I consider? I don't need a pure performance tyre but don't want an economy tyre either (mid-on range).
