  1. Guy hit me from behind while I was parked, estimates?

    General Discussion
    In my case, it WAS the other guy's insurance. The guy rear-ended me. So his insurance was working with me already, so we worked through the options, and they were very nice. They should be able to work with you, especially if it saves them money. I think the only way to get that rear metal...

    At least you figured it out lol, thanks for updating in case someone else does the same thing
  3. Is there a way to revitalize a worn steering wheel?

    General Discussion
    Yeah it seems like an easy option. Though what I did (more for fun) was someone on Club Lexus was offering a service where he sends you a newly-wrapped wheel (I got mine with blue stitching) and you send yours back. I think it was like $200

    wow you did that leather by hand? Very impressive!
  5. Is there a way to revitalize a worn steering wheel?

    Could try black leather dye (for shoes perhaps), but since the actual leather material and texture looks intact in the picture, maybe even just some black/shine interior leather wipes would restore it. I use Meguiars, and it works really well to keep things dark black. I was actually surprised...
  6. CRAZY Screeching sound! Solved = Harmonic Balancer

    General Discussion
    While I might apply that logic to lightbulbs or something insignificant and easy to replace, the crank pulley is probably the last thing I'd want to "cheap out" on lol. No need to cross your fingers if you stick with OEM. All these people having trouble with theirs lately makes me kinda wish I...

    The way to make your channel great is to make great content. Not just spamming the same thing over and over on a forum without looking at the replies
  8. Overheat/White smoke from engine

    Basic Help & Repair
    Sounds like the radiator fans are failing, which overheats the coolant and eliminates the A/C. The white smoke is bubbling over coolant.
  9. Driver seat

    Basic Help & Repair
    Worst case, you can just swap the seat over to the passenger side every time to make adjustments until you get it right. Or, run some wires from that seat to the driver side

    Nice updates, and congrats on the kid and still having time for the car. I also have the Manzo exhaust, I used exhaust flanges to space it out so it wouldn't melt the bumper. The new Tanabe is quieter? I definitely don't want that, but I am still open to options. Lucky catch about the pulley...

  16. Guy hit me from behind while I was parked, estimates?

    General Discussion
    Same thing happened to mine, except the impact on mine was lower, so the trunk wasn't that bad. But the metal behind the bumper was. They totalled it. Can't really tell what's going on there without taking it apart. If a new bumper, lights, and trunk is all it needs, then it shouldn't be...
  17. LED Headlight Bulbs for 2001-2016 Lexus IS Sedan! Made in USA! | Diode Dynamics

    Diode Dynamics
    They do well to replace halogen bulbs, but aren't as bright as HIDs (or an HID kit). I got a set of yellows for my fogs eventually but haven't put them in yet. They do have plenty of data on their site and social media pages showing the difference in output for several examples. So does...
