  1. Convenience is the top reason I use them. My dealer at Edgware Rd offers all three options as per Mike's comment.
  2. Well, I got quoted for stuff two years ago, which miraculously disappeared the next service, then the same total sum reappeared - but for something else this year. Does make you wonder.
  3. Now that is disappointing, I would expect at least one of them to say 'ah well, win some, lose some'!
  4. Thanks for letting us know. I'll be ringing my local dealer to see if they've dropped the don't have a clue act, in favour of looking like a company who actually gives a toss about their customers.
  5. This is exactly why I never drive without a dash cam, as its like nobody wants to take responsibility for their own actions nowadays. There no question he was in the wrong lane for where he was going, yet had he at least carried out his dodgy lane change in the correct manner, this thread wouldn't exist. What I've yet to understand is why dashcams aren't installed at the point of manufacture.
  6. At Edgware Rd they did a video walk round of my car at last month service, but a simple visual check is sufficient, so just ask if they don't offer. As others have said, just dont let them wash it, and I'm sure they'll be happy with that. What I have noticed is that when they changed a tyre last time, my wheel had this really hard to remove black gunk on it, so this time I said I'll sort it out myself - so their loss.
  7. Glad to read you sorted it, as Phil said, the dealer got off lightly.
  8. This is incredible, what sort of ignorant low life could possibly think this make sense....I mean this is like 99.99999% risk/0.00001% reward
  9. Good for you, please let us know how you get on. Just to reassure you that you are doing the right thing, a sd card is very minor in comparison to what I've insisted dealers sort out.
  10. What a poor response. My reply to that would have been ' and I wouldnt have bought it if I had known the sat nav wasn't working properly'!
  11. That sounds more like laquer than paint that they gave you. I bought a touch up pack from an ebay Lexus retailer which contains both paint and laquer. Used it today actually, while touching up the alloys, and results are good. You just need to be really tight with the paint, and if you dont get the chip/scratch spot on, just wipe it off and try again.
  12. I asked what the difference was last time my is200d was serviced, and was told no stamp, no filter change and hinges not lubricated. I got a £75 discount on the normal service, so the price difference was only £41 (370 full service, 329 full essential), had it been the original the £445 I would have probably gone for the essential.
  13. You're right. My last Lexus service (60k mile type)report sheet shows an unticked box next to 'replace diesel fuel filter every 7 years or 50k miles' I guess the technician must have attempted it before and thought I'm not doing that again!
  14. What year is your car John, only I'm thinking I wont even ask a mechanic to do mine (and hoping mines not full of crap), after the reading all the nightmare storys on this thread!
