mine are polycarbonate, not metal. They don't fight to go in like Gville350's, but there is no play when they are in. I've never had problems with the wheels, and they have been on and off a lot. I...

If you put the old rings in the rims, do the rings sit flush with the center of the rim? Are they snug or quite loose?

If it is just a $4 part, why don't you buy it? If it doesn't look like the correct part, then throw it away. If it looks ok, then just install it and see if it fixes the problem.

So when it went to 5k rpm, the car kind of slipped out of gear? I mean it didn't just accelerate until it hit 5000 rpm? Or did it shift down gears to get to 5k rpm?

Is the leak from the drain plug? Hard to tell from the pics. You can try to tighten it a bit. 10mm hex key is needed.
There is a metal washer that goes on the plug. I wonder if they lost it, but...

I highly recommend Akebono. Do searches here. I think you will find good things about them. They worked for me in cold weather, up to autocross. For track days, you need to upgrade, but I found good...

afe used to sell one. You can still find them at least. It blocks off most of the engine bay and gets air from the same scoop as the stock air filter. It probably blocks 80% of the engine bay, but...

Not having a dipstick is not the same as being unable to add oil. IS350 has no dipstick but has separate plugs to drain and fill. In that case, you fill till it starts to come out the drain and you...

Are you sure the fluid level is correct now? I only have docs for the IS350, but just adding fluid isn't that difficult. I am assuming the 250 won't be too much different, but you would have to check...

If you turn off traction and vdim, does the problem go away?
With a 2006 you would have to look up peddle dance, if you don't already know how. I have no idea if the European diesels even allow it.
