Beautiful ISF for sale

Recommended Posts

Sold Sold Sold

Good day LOC Members. This is a private sale of my 2011 Facelift Obsidian Black ISF with light Ivory hide interior. 57,500 miles with full Lexus Service History and 6 months MOT.

This is a stunning much loved and cared for example with all the usual IS F refinements + 13 Months Lexus Warranty (not that it will ever be needed) and a pre-paid service plan covering the next two services at a Sytner Lexus dealer. Also available a full set of brand new, still in the box, correctly sized and specified winter wheels with brand new Michelin Alpin 4 tyres. I bought them for winter but instead chose to garage the car for 4 months and save her from the weather. As you can tell she is rather well cared for. This truly is an exceptional car amongst what is already quite a rare breed. I have owned the car for a year and a half and it is without a doubt the best vehicle I have ever come across for providing an effortless, quiet luxury driving experience yet also be capable of mind warping performance and driving. A true Jekyll and Hyde of a car that none of its rivals can compete with. The only changes I have made to the car is to have the rear passenger windows and rear screen professionally tinted in a 35% grade (not the 20% limo tint) and I have had the RR-Racing USR system fitted to improve the steering response (a common upgrade). Original parts supplied with car of course.

This car is the midway facelift model so as such comes with some benefits over the earlier model, the more important of these being the inclusion of the limited slip differential, the sports suspension setup for more comfortable ride and the interior update. General Specification:

19" BBS forged aluminium anthracite alloy wheels, nearly new (7mm) Continental Sportcontact 6 tyres in the slightly wider 275/245 setup. 7" Lexus touch screen electro multi-vision satellite navigation system updated with 2015-16 European maps, 6 DVD changer, rear view reversing camera, Mark Levinson Luxury Audio system with 14 speakers, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, electric heated front sport seats with memory, electric heated folding door mirrors, Electrochromatic auto-dimming rear view mirror, Auto lights and wipers, sports suspension, Limited slip differential front & rear parking aid, ESP stability control, sports multi functional steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, Lexus multi programme paddle shift gear change, electrically adjustable steering column, USB Audio interface, automatic dual zone climate control, Keyless entry. All documents and keys present.

I have a couple of extra’s that I had planned to fit but never gotten around to. I have an actual carbon rear wing/lip (not wrap or dip) and a new still boxed, never opened set of Brembo OEM rear brake discs that will come with the car. Plenty more pictures available on request.

A super rare vehicle which has been meticulously maintained and is simply stunning. Please do come and look and experience this car for yourself, they are something else. For test drives please arrange your own insurance, I am of course willing to take interested parties for a drive. Please note personal plate not included in the sale.

Thank you for looking

£21500, open to some negotiation to keep her in the club.

Thank you Mr Rat she's a beauty. You can indeed ask about my plans. I've just indulged my wish to own a custom VW T5 camper, now of course this doesnt satisfy my weekend itch so in short order I will be on the hunt for an Elise R. Owned one previously and as soon as I sold her I knew i'd be in another some day. Be gutted to see the Lex go but I dont need 3 family cars in the garage you know.

Yeah I have to sell so I've priced a little under what I believe its worth. I looked at 6 ISF's before settling on this one and its in much better condition now than when I bought it. I know I cant price with the same inflation that dealers and garages, someone will be getting a great car for very good money.

By the way I can do the car at £21000 + a few furry peanuts

There is a a 4 page article in Car Mechanics magazine this month (September issue) on buying a used T5 which may prove useful when looking for one.

Maybe not a question for your 'for sale' thread...but how do you find the light coloured seats, are they a pain to keep mark free and clean?

      Hi ISF owners,
      I was wondering if anyone with a 7-9 year old ISF has recently had a rolling road BHP test? 
      If yes what was your BHP?
      Was that taken from the crank/flywheel or the wheel/tire?
      Ive just had a new short block replaced along with a complete clean and rebuild (paid for by Lexus under my extended warranty 12k cost!!) after my engine was losing loads of oil but upon having a BHP test I am only getting 365 at the crank which is nearly 55 BHP down on what it should be. However Lexus are telling me that is about right for a 8 year old ISF so Im looking to see what others are getting from a 7-9 year old ISF (standard build - i.e. no enhancements)?
      Thanks

      Hello peeps. So my replacement battery i had was a Toyota Optifit which tbh im not happy with. Been 18months and its struggling as the days get colder. I bought a Ctek charger which charged it and it was ok for a day and then when i measured it across the terminals i was only getting 11.8v
      Can someone who has the original factory fitted battery take a pic for me and if they can find out the spec and part number from the battery please?
      Cheers

      Need some help and advice gents. So I've had enough of my OEM Bridgestones and wanted to change to the Michelin PS4s tyres all round. I thought I might as well upgrade the sizes from OEM to 245/35/19 fronts and 275/30/19 rears. Got to Costco today after ordering them a few days ago only to be told they refuse to fit them as the are not the manufactures recommended size and it will invalidate your insurance.
      1st I've heard something like this as I'm sticking to the correct load and speed rating.
      Any advice please? You guys who have upgraded the size told your insurance company?

      Hi.
      I have one owner 2002 model in blue with cream interior just over 12000 miles full Lexus Main Dealer History, Cambelt changed and private reg ( CCN70C ) this goes with the vehicle.(cambelt change requirement 100000 miles or 10 years)
      4 New Lexus wheels with the rubber 100 miles of use, slight kerbing very slight, may be £ 100 to restore back to new condition.
      You will not find a better example, still, has original stickers on the seats, i would describe it as the best example in the UK.a rare find indeed.Engine oil, for example, is the colour of light honey, a 
      new battery from Lexus.
      This model year far less road tax than later models.
      Yes, you will find cheaper, however, this car is what I would describe as just about new (one owner) and a sticker price of £54000 in 2002.i may still have the original receipt.,3 sets of keys and all associated paperwork, books and manuals. 
      Is presently on SORN.
      A timeless classic in the making.
      60 high definition pictures of this vehicle
      i believe only 700 SC 430 is on the register in the UK 3 2002 Models 2 on the road and mine on the SORN.
      email me ccap123@aol.com and i will send you the photos.
