    Hi all names Jay and live in Milton of Campsie near the outskirts of Glasgow been wanting to delve into the Lexus market for a long time and finally I have I'm now the proud owner of a 2005 300 gs picked her up 2 days ago with full service history she has 160000 miles on the clock and needs a little tlc on the bodywork got her without an MOT but only paid £2200 for her she's in black and got the mark Levinson option which is a big plus for me Only thing needed done for MOT is 2 front shocks and 2 rear tyres which I'm really chuffed at as everyone else works perfect I'm not sure what trim she is. No Pictures yet as she's in the garage Got a quick question for you is it only Lexus that supplies the shocks or can I get aftermarket ones a bit cheaper anyone point me in the right direction I look forward to a wee chat with some of you and being a valuable member of the club Regards Jay

    Thanks for your reply I done a bit of research and did notice that someone in Northampton refurbished them only trouble is I'm in scotland still love the look of the 450h might go for a test drive in both cars and make my mind up that way. good advice on the newer with high miles and the full Lexus history. Did you end up with the 450h how has it been for you 👍 Appreciate your input Cheers Jay

    Hi everyone names Jay just popped in to say hello this will be my first lexus when I get round to buying it I've always owned a toyota. I'm in a bit of a dilemma in what to go for initially I wanted a smaller lexus like the ls 250 but then the GS models started to catch my eye in particular the 450h I'm not looking to buy new but maybe a 2008 2009 model I don't mind high milers as long as they have been looked after I was all up for going for the 450h but started to hear of problems with the hybrid battery so sort of put me off a bit and left me a bit dissapointed it's all about reliability with cars for me if anyone could put my mind at rest or any advice in regards to the battery problems that would be great. Another GS caught my eye was the GS 300 it seems to have all the mod cons like the 450h and reviews in general are good just a little slower and less mpg but I won't have the headache of worrying about the hybrid battery cells Any advice or suggestions or tips regarding what car to go for would be great thanks Looking forward to your replies Cheers Jay
