  1. Why he left Lexus Ownership

    Couldnโ€™t agree more Mark. I would also add that the ISF was quick enough around Silverstone to come second to an M3 & ahead of a C63 who were only separated by less than 2.5 seconds in total if I recall (on around a 2 minute lap) and both the German cars had mechanical LSDโ€™s. The F would probably have been even closer to the M3 had it have been fitted with one at the time . The ISF Ring taxi is also about 30 seconds quicker than an M5 Ring taxi - to me thatโ€™s a seriously quick car by any standards & how much more can you actually ever use anyway!! I went back to MB World recently & spent an hour in a 600hp CLS AMG which is a mighty impressive car but the difference is marginal I suspect in most situation. Iโ€™m perfectly happy with the F which has more than enough for me. Still each to his own๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  2. Sorry...insurance question!

    Definitely worth it & added relatively little to the premium๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  3. Sorry...insurance question!

    I originally had the car insured with Lexus insurance, mainly because they were one of the few to not require a tracker at the time and so there would be no quibling over Lexus doing any repairs. I had also been provide with a 3 year gap insurance when I bought the car as part of the deal. As mentioned above re the pitifull insurance value payed on a stolen ISF, I tried to extend my gap insurance when it finshed earlier this year, which apparently you can't do unless its within 6 months of the cars purchase. So as a result I am now also with Adrian Flux, who were cheaper even with an agreed valuation policy. I would give GAP or an a agreed valuation policy serious consideration, because you certainly won't be able to replace the car with the payout from a standard policy.
  4. Could it be time?!

    Just get yourself a drive in one a decide from there, because we are all biased any way. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you like you wonโ€™t find another car of this type which doesnโ€™t come with issues. They are a great car so good luck with the search
  5. Has your F got a nickname?

    Because Iโ€™m OCD about where I park etc a friends wife said the F is clearly a bit of a Diva. This remindied her of โ€œAlexusโ€ Carrinton in her white dress with shoulder pads etc from Dynasty. My whole bloody family now refer to my car as Joan or Joanie - just brilliant!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  6. More Exhaust Vids

    Thanks for the info & posting the vids - H & S does sound good!!
  7. Looking for an IS-F

    Hi Josh, following on from what Paul said above. All I would add is buy based on condition, as mileage doesn't seem to be an issue. They do not seem to be as fragile as the German equivalents!! The main things is to make sure it has been looked after and serviced properly at the correct intervals etc. I would personally only buy one with a full Lexus history to cover the above and also with resale in mind. Good luck with the hunt.

    Great videos & you weren't hanging around!!
  9. Airbag Recall Damage

    When my car went in for a service a few weeks back, I asked about the air bag replacement damage issues & was told that they would access it via the glove box to avoid damaging the dash. Will still be waiting a while before I get it done to make sure I'm not the 1st & will take be taking pictures etc as usual.
  10. Wow that's disappointing!! Have had discs from them before and they have always been fine. Let's hope it's just a one off and a replacement set are to the expected standard.
  11. Is your F 100% stock?

    Won't they just love it ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†
  12. Is your F 100% stock?

    100% stock - for now ๐Ÿ˜‰
  13. How well do you know the F?

    Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ The handcuffs are still not to the required standard though @Big Rat & I'm disappointed by the lack of dirt, tools & rubble etc - it not like any Builder's van I've ever seen!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ @Flytvr Dav really enjoyed scanning the picture on my train journey home - reminded me of those spot the difference sketches in comics I did when I was a kid. It was good fun so thanks for taking the time to do it.
  14. How well do you know the F?

    I'm very worried now & those hand cuffs are not even fury!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜†
  15. How well do you know the F?

    I knew I should be worried๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‰
  16. How well do you know the F?

    Hi Dav, Had a go & PM'd you - better late than never!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm bit concerned about the prize though ๐Ÿ˜†
  17. Haywood and scott

    Glad to hear it Matt & we are fine thanks. No harm in a good ribbing.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜† If I was sure the H&S (with or without the x pipe) sounds as good as yours in the flesh I would have done it by now.๐Ÿ˜‰ All the best David
  18. Haywood and scott

    Hi Matt hope you & yours are well. I know it's got to be done, resistance is futile & all that. Shame I've gone & changed our other car last month - bugger ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hoping to get round to it sooner rather than later. David
  19. Haywood and scott

    @kieron1977 Wow does sound bloody good!! Thanks for posting the videos - want one now!!
  20. Which country would you pick?

    I think he might ๐Ÿ˜‰ The banter between u all does make me chuckle. ๐Ÿ˜†
  21. Haywood and scott

    Resistance is futile just give in ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‰
  22. Haywood and scott

    Thanks Kieron thats really helpful. Was only interested in the x pipe as I thought it helped prevent any droning. My interest in changing the exhaust is purely for the sound. I'm also hoping I will be able to get it done sooner rather than later
  23. Simply Japanese @ Beaulieu 2017

    Sounds like plan - 2018 commitments & dates permitting.
  24. Haywood and scott

    Thanks for the info & glad you are enjoying it so much. Will likely be doing the same in the near future as have H&S on my door step!! As you said I'm sure when I do it I will wish I had done it sooner, especially having heard @Peter P18 & @Mattmech exhausts. Be interested to know your impressions once you have lived with it for a while, especially on long journeys, as trying to decide on with/without X pipe re any droning issues. I haven't to date actually heard a H&S CAT back exhaust, so always helpful to hear an owners views. I appreciate its completely down to personal preference.
  25. Got my final photos!

    Brilliant pics you must be chuffed!!
