Iridium plugs are usually good for 120,000 - 150,000 miles. My 2007 doesn't require plugs to be changed at 60k. I've seen some cars requiring plug changes at 60,000 miles to "comply with emission...

Well, the only real big ticket item with the IS250 is the carbon buildup problem, which would cost you way more than $2800 to fix! I would try to spread out the miles/years a little more evenly -...

Well, there are no subwoofers in the door - the larger speaker is just a regular woofer (as printed in your diagram). The sub is under the rear parcel shelf. What are you trying to accomplish?

Can also be due to worn control arm bushings but you can usually feel that in the steering wheel in addition to the seat.

Easy enough fixed - the wiper arm just need to be re-positioned on the motor spline. 10 min job for you or the dealer. Was the windshield ever replaced?

Rather than that, I suspect the car was involved in a front/rear freeway shunt. Unfortunately, this WILL eventually show up on carfax to the detriment of the resale value.

Well, commercial door openers, etc, are X-band but speed cameras are mostly K/Ka band. Do you have lots of cameras in OC (Orange County?)
