Year - Model: IS250 2007
Package: Base
Miles: 89,094 Miles
Beside regular maintenance, what has been broken and repaired?
Water pump, outside temperature sensor (still not fixed), dynamo (drained two new batteries of mine), the front set of wheels are aligned different, tire pressure sensor doesn't work anymore, navigation system stopped working after 85k had to get it replaced with an aftermarket look-a-like which i actually prefer now and the most expensive aside the nav system was my ecu blowing up along with a few wires. Even though my IS is a 2007 model, my brother convinced me to put in the 2008 ECU and it works fantastic. Did the programming and keys work just fine. Besides all of that, it wasn't a big of a problem, i'm loving the car and the performance i'm getting. Sooner or later, i'll do an engine swap and exhaust changeover.
