  1. Hi guys, Like the title says, I was just really curious if it's possible to somehow move the TRD Aurion's supercharged engine into my manual is200? I'm just thinking since they are both sedans. And also wanted to swap my is200s seats into the TRD Aurion's Plum or red leather seats but i wasn't sure if they would be compatible... I obviously don't have much knowledge about these cars other than I am a toyota fanboy because i love the is200 design so much and I used to dream of 2jzgte conversion in the future (like every is200 driver ever) until i thought about the TRD Aurions and how beast they are... but lately I have actually been working alot so I'm genuinely curious now if it's doable, I mean the is200 does have alot of empty space under the hood.. I think the supercharged engine would just be perfect for the is200 haha (and those seats wouldnt hurt too) haha if anyone knows and can answer would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hello everyone Just joined these forums but here is a picture of the car as it sits now:
  3. Looking to do a swap on my 1gfe is200. Either turbo the 1g or go Honda motor because I can't afford a 3sge haha. Any thoughts or know anyone who has done this swap?
  4. Hi there everyone, im looking at buying a Lexus RX 350 Sport Luxury Gen 3 from either 09 or another one from 2011. I’ve tried to research but gotten confused and hoping someone can help steer me in the right direction. I listen to Spotify on my phone in the car normally so trying to figure out how to do this in the RX and be able to use the stereo controls instead of touching my phone to change the music and risk a fine. From what I understand the 09 car doesn’t have Bluetooth audio streaming or USB but is there a simple or easy way I can rectify this to be able to use my iPhone music in the car? The 2011 car is a bit more expensive and has a Mark Levinson stereo as well but not sure if it will have a USB connection that will interact with My iPhone properly or if it has Bluetooth audio streaming. the other option I thought of was getting Apple CarPlay installed but it didn’t seem like the easiest thing to find and the ones I did didn’t seem to use the pre existing interface, using an additional remote instead. thanks for any advice or guidance you may have!
  5. 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.
  6. Can anyone send me the part list and/or user manual for the RR Racing Air/Oil Separator for lexus.?
  7. Let me know what you think of this 2018 Lexus RC350
  8. For sale are LED Headlights for 2012 to 2015 GS, fits GS250 GS350 GS450h all grades Price: $2000 Preferred pickup Sydney or can work out shipping.
  9. 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

  14. 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. You can read that here if interested. I purchased this IS-F after looking for around 5 months to find a decent example. 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 fair bit of $ on this one, 208awkw. 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 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 Time for some mods…… X-force header-back exhaust (sounds great but a little too loud for my liking – had custom rear mufflers made in July 2018 to quieten it down a bit) 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 fitted RR Racing air/oil separator (catch can) 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. Ran the car on the Dyno in May 2018 (mods were xforce exhaust, gutted cats, afe filter and HPS intake pipe). Consistently ran 247-249kw atw over 4 runs. RR Racing ECU Tune loaded June 2018 (made 265kw after the tune)

  17. The Lexus RC F GT3 secured a sensational first victory in the Blancpain GT Series at the Paul Ricard circuit in the South of France on Saturday. Emil Frey Lexus Racing’s Alberto Costa Balboa took the lead just half a lap from the chequered flag in the six-hour Endurance Cup race to claim a memorable result for the team and for Lexus The result sets the seal on a steady transformation of the team’s fortunes in the RC F GT3’s first full season of European GT competition and delivers on the promise the car showed in scoring points and podium results in the previous rounds of the series at Brands Hatch and Silverstone. Lorenz Frey, Team Principal, said: “We still can’t believe it. The last lap was nerve-racking, nobody would have thought that after six hours it would be so close. We have now definitely proven that we have a very strong package and can demonstrate the performance of the Lexus and the expert work of our team.” The race was rare in offering so much close action throughout its 1,000km distance. In a field of 51 starters, just one second covered the qualifying times of the top 24 cars. At the start, Christian Klien in the No14 Lexus moved from fourth on the grid to second by the first corner, while team-mate Stéphane Ortelli in the sister No114 car also put in a strong first stint, racing from eighth to third within just a few laps. At nightfall, both Lexus RC F GT3 looked on course for a podium finish. Norbert Siedler in the No114 had a strong fight with the No7 Bentley, but light contact meant he couldn’t progress beyond fourth before handing over to Ortelli. He too suffered contact with another car, which required an unscheduled pit stop to repair damage to the steering. This effectively ruled the Lexus out of contention, but the team were able to use the remaining hours to test and prepare the car for the highlight of the season, the 24-hours of Spa. Meanwhile, Marco Seefried was running in a good fourth spot in the No14 car when he handed the wheel to Costa Balboa for the last hour of the race. Once the leading No72 Ferrari suffered an engine failure and the second-placed McLaren received a drive-through penalty, the Lexus found itself running in second place. Costa Balboa was just 0.8 seconds behind the leading Bentley with eight minutes to go. On the final lap, he seized the initiative with a great overtaking move through turn 10, securing an incredible first victory for Lexus in the Blancpain GT Series. Emil Frey Racing now leads the Endurance Cup team’s championship standings. The next outing for the team will be a two-race Sprint Cup meeting at Misano, in Italy, from 22 to 24 June.
  18. 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

  23. 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.

  24. 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
