A few years ago I changed the air filter on my 2006 IS 350 and found this mummified creature in the air box. He must have crawled in through the intake, fell into the box and wasn't able to get out....

The v14.1 is the latest version, it just came out. It's just a special they are running through the end of the year, then it goes back to MSRP of $169, so it is a bargain at $94 + shipping.

Unless this Lexus dealer had the specific equipment to do a REAL flush I don't see how this was accomplished. You can only get a small portion of the fluid out by normal methods.

Whoa, let's get a grip. You aren't going to get a felony conviction for this. Owner needs to work through the system and move on. Gun and felony talk is just trash talk.
