    Greed over supply & demand

    It's not all about the production numbers. Lexus produced less than 12k IS-Fs and the car has far more aftermarket than the LS. My '14 is 1 of ~300.

    My LS Looks Different!

    Well guys, after nearly 5.5 years of ownership it was finally time to let her go and move on... A fellow LVC'er picked up my LS today and drove her home. As my first car, I part with a heavy hart and will certainly miss it, but I now have a new toy to enjoy and focus my energy (and spend...

    Trunk Release, no power

    Update: Took out the lock cylinder, soaked it with brake cleaner and viola! Fixed. A lot of black gunk came out in the process. The cylinder itself was stuck inside the metal housing and could not turn, the pins were fine. Why haven't I done that sooner?

    Trunk Release, no power

    Lubed the lock cylinder, no dice. Also tried my spare key, no dice (verified it to work in ignition and door lock). Emergency trunk release also works fine. Time to bring the cylinder to a lock smith I guess.

    Trunk Release, no power

    Will do, thank you. Would white lithium suffice?

    Trunk Release, no power

    What could be the cause of this, aside from using a valet key? I don't recall having this problem, but recently found out neither of my keys open the trunk manually via the lock cylinder. Any troubleshooting I can do? I checked the service manual but there wasn't much in that regard IIRC.

    Any pics of that new 535i?
