i have a genuine Toyota one at home (previous UK owner gave it to me he never got around to fitting it) its not for sale but i think theres a part number on it.
i can get the number for you over the weekend if thats any good to you?
maybe ring a toyota dealer anyway with your chassis number and see if they have it on the database.

By the way having Lexus badging can be useful, think parking tickets... :wink:

But if the warden records it as a Lexus and you query the ticket they have no choice but to quash it when records show its actually a Toyota. Believe me, it works...

its worked 'for my mate johnny' about 5 times anyway with no probs.

id say most wardens would have an idea what most cars would be without checking badges, id imagine its just a few of the Toyota/Lexus cars are the only ones you'd pull it off with.

yes if you could that would be great :D , i had an altezza a few months back and i tried to get Denis Mahony to service it and they wouldnt do it, so i doubt they will get a badge in for me. :(

Checked the badge i had over the weekend there sorry but the label has been half ripped off so the part number is gone off it.

Best bet is to ring a dealer, McConnells in Waterford were pretty helpful any time ive been on to them. Have your chassis number to hand
