  1. I imported my car IS F from Guernsey. I paid VAT when the car landed in the UK. I'm surprised you're discussing the speedo being in kmh or mph and whether or not you have a fog lights as you seem to be missing the main costs. All the below is assuming you do the whole process yourself and I am ignoring costs for speedo conversion etc as they are inconsequential. Your car is currently valued at X. You will then pay Y to get the car shipped to the UK. When your car is in the UK, you will then be liable for import duty (Z). This rate is variable based on where you are imporating the vehicle from and what the vehicle is. Follow the link below and call the helpline below for an accurate quote: https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk/paying-vat-and-duty Finally, VAT will be payable. This will be (X + Y + Z) x 20%. So let's say your car is worth £22k and it costs 1.5k to import. I will ignore import duty for now but obviously this will increase the final amount. So: (22k + 1.5k) x 20% (4,700) = 28.2k. Are you sure you can't find a better example here for 28.2k? Let's not forget I have not included any adaptation costo or duty costs. I hope this helps.
  2. Excellent. I'll give them a call and get them to send the correct one. Thanks for looking into this!
  3. The problem I am having is that all the photos on the Lexus Bristol ebay store are of the same boot liner for different models so it's impossible to tell. I have gone via lexus accessories and it throws out different part numbers. So I feel the best solution is to get a part number off someone with a genuine liner actually in their boot. Cheers for the help so far.
  4. The part number for mine is on the side facing up, closest to where the back seats are. Ie at the back of the boot. I've taken photos and attach below. Thanks for going outside to check for me... virtual pint of Guinness for you!
  5. I do indeed. That would be brilliant. Thanks!
  6. Might get an award for most boring topic ever. I want a genuine Lexus boot liner for my IS F so bought one from Lexus Bristol ebay store after they assured me it would fit. It has arrived and it doesn't... no problem as I'll send it back. I'd rather supply them with the correct part number rather than getting another incorrect one sent though. Anyone on here got a genuine Lexus boot liner for their IS F and if so, what is the product number please? For reference, I have: P LPZ434-1301-PJ Thanks
  7. Unanimous vote for autosol. Thanks for the info chaps. Hopefully they're easy to remove! Will get some autosol and have a go soon.
  8. After looking at photos of other peoples' ISF in the big photo thread, I notice how nice and shiny the exhaust tips look. What do you all use? I haven't cleaned mine in the year since I bought the car and they really need doing. I have purchased some extra fine wire wool but am reluctant to use it at all. Also, do you know if the tips can easily be removed from the car to clean them more thoroughly? Cheers
  9. I used Lexus Guildford for my last service and would use them again. Out of interest, I've spotted a black one in Raynes Park/Wimbledon and wonder if it's the same black one I spotted parked up in Elephant and Castle. Either sound like someone on here? Would be good to get a couple of photos with this many so close together!
  10. Me too. SW London. Seen 5 in a year! Although didn't get the reg of the black one so maybe seen the same one twice.
  11. Looks fantastic! Would love to see it in person one day. I really like the "true colour" carbon trim surrounding the gear stick, in the front door around the handles etc. The stand out piece for me is the rear piece between the two passenger seats. I wish they had done that from factory as the black plastic is not aesthetically pleasing at all. I'd love to get this done to the piece in the rear but it may look a bit odd if it's done in the same colour as yours as it would mismatch the original parts in the front. Where did you get it done please? And do you reckon they could match the original colour? ie I would get the part done in the rear to match the bits in the front. When you let me know who did it, I'll ask them. Cheers!
  12. 100% keen on getting these too so please count me in. Been looking at getting then for the past few weeks as braking from high speed isnt too direct. I'm sure Pete will see this and have some valuable input. Anyone know how it would work to try and get a UK company (such as Whiffbitz) to stock these? They would probably be able to get them shipped for a far better (trade) price and we could then be buying from a UK based store.
  13. 24. Anyone younger?!
  14. So in summary... Screw the neighbours! It's a lovely reminder for them first thing in the morning that they shouldn't have bought a diseasel golf. So looks like a few of us are going for this. Anyone up for a takeda intake? Could be handy to do a group buy on that with an American supplier.
  15. I am very keen on getting the exhaust too. I wonder if there is any scope for a discount if a few of us get them? I am either toying with the idea of the H&S or Gib has been in contact with a German based manufacturer so I'll drop him a line to see if they can offer something that sounds even better.
