  1. Exactly - insurers are always happy to take your money then as a standard procedure try to find a reason not to pay. What happen to paying for and receiving a good service for your money!! - blimey I’m showing my age 😉
  2. Spoke to Lexus Woodford & also Lexus extended warranty re putting the H&S cat back system on as part of the group buy. Spoke to Lexus Woodford who were very helpful & didn’t think this would be a problem as warranty doesn’t cover exhaust anyway as a failure would usually be in the wear & tear category, but suggested I check with warranty. Warranty’s response was the unequivocal insurance response that it would invalidate the warranty as per the terms & conditions re no modifications.. Discussed fact that the exhaust is not covered anyway and that Lexus dealers were selling cars with non OEM exhausts complete with warranties, to which I got no response. Called Woodford back to find out how the claims procedure works and they were clearly surprised by warranty’s response.. Claims apparently are usually inspected over some £900 or when a component could have failed due to wear & tear. The dealer usually fights the claim on your behalf, as they want the work, but you can complain which apparently can have more impact. Woodford deal with most of the various warranty companies & in their experience the Lexus warranty is very good at paying . There view was that as the exhaust is not covered anyway they felt it would be very unlikely to be an issue & they would fight the issue. The only time they were aware of an issue resulting in the warranty not paying telated to suspension problems on a car that had been lowered. My concern with all this is that any ambiguity around insurance leaves it open to someone’s interpretation and there is little point in paying for the warranty if it doesn’t payout when you need it. I called today mainly to make sure I had cover all the bases before sorting the exhaust - not sure where I stand now TBO.
  3. I consdered one before the F.and having done some research I decided against. What concerned me most was hearing about people who had owned one & liked it so much they bought a second to then have nothing but trouble & would never own one again. If the quality control/any issues do not improve with time the reliability will likely never improve. Shame because they are a cracking car..
  4. Realy surprised by that as I have my ISF with them on an agreed value policy & I believe @Big Rat had his ISF with them on a similar basis before he sold it. Shame because I found them very helpful. Only got this type of policy myself for the 1st time last year, so I’m afraid I can’t help with an alternative as options seemed pretty limited when I looked then. Would be interested to know what alternatives you find though👍🏻
  5. Sounds good we can watch Pete disappear at warp factor 9 😉
  6. Hi Charlie welcome to the F forum & looks like a good one, in a very nice colour - not that i’m biased of course😉 As others have said you will love it & I look forward to seeing some pictures 👍🏻
  7. Have you been waking Bluewater up again?😉
  8. Very nice 👍🏻 You must be enjoying the difference!!
  9. @Big Rat thanks Paul. I’m keen to attend this, dates permitting, at either location 👍🏻
  10. That’s handy to known so many thanks for posting the info👍🏻
  11. Happy birthday Paul - hope you have a great birthday enjoying the new present 😉👍🏻
  12. Hi Paul, very nice & I hope kit gives you as much enjoyment as your ISF.👍🏻
  13. Got bumped..

    Sorry to hear that , but should be straight forward & wouldn’t be at all surprised if her insurance company offers to repair it so you won’t have to fork out your excess. Had that when I was hit from behind a while back. But as others have said I would insist Lexus do the repairs unless you know a body shop you trust. Even if you decide to go through your own insurance company there shouldn’t be any issue with you getting your excess back from such a clear cut accident. Hope it all gets sorted as painlessly as possible👍🏻
  14. Glad to hear that Pete. I’m not surprised about traction issues at the top end TBO given the bhp you now have. The power to weight ratio must put it in the same territory as some serious cars. As a rough calc you must be running around the 380bhp/t mark . It was quick before the SC, must be ballistic now - it’s going to be a exciting summer!! 👍🏻
