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?

      The time has come to sell my lovely IS250 SE-L that I have owned for almost four years. Only selling due to purchasing an NX.
      The IS250 SE-L Multimedia Auto is widely regarded as the best spec for the 2nd gen IS, and I'm sure most regulars to the forum will know the spec, but just in case:
      - Full leather, electric, memory, heated, cooled seats
      - Electric/memory steering wheel adjustment
      - Sat nav, Bluetooth, Mark Levinson 14 speaker surround sound & DVD player
      - Front and rear sensors plus reverse camera 
      - Electric rear blind
      - Xenon lights, LED rear lights
      - Powerfold electric and memory wing mirrors
      - Auto dimming rear view mirror and wing mirrors
      - Cruise control
      - Dual zone climate control
      - Smart/keyless entry and start
      - Auto lights and wipers
      There's probably more that I've forgotten to be honest - it has pretty much everything!
      The car has covered just over 66,000 miles and has a full service history - all but 1 being from the Lexus main dealer. It was last serviced at Lexus Poole in March, which was the major service including the spark plugs that need changing at 60k. The MOT is valid until 29th September 2018, also last completed at Lexus Poole so has had a recent Lexus health check and all clear. In fact it has been in again recently to have the airbag recall done so that's all sorted now too. I am the 4th keeper of the car and have owned it almost 4 years. The first keeper was Lexus Poole as it was originally their demo car. I have the fully stamped service book, all manuals/books and a stack of invoices to go with car, along with it's two remote keys.
      The car has also had a recent new alternator and water pump (fitted at Lexus Poole), recent new tyres all round, and recent front discs and pads. During my first year of ownership (when it was under Lexus warranty) it also had a new rear caliper, two new rear shocks, and 2 new Xenon bulbs, so it's had most of the common issues sorted.
      It drives beautifully and I have kept the car in very good condition. If you would like any more information on the car, more photos or would like to come and view it, please send me a PM and I will give you my mobile number. The car is located in Poole, Dorset and I'm looking for £5,995 ONO.

      Note to moderator- please leave this in the ISF forum, it’s more likely to be of interest to ISF owners than GS owners.

      After one year running a GSF, I thought you might be interested in my experiences compared to my previous early ISF.

      First thing to say is that running a high performance car like this makes no sense at all in the suburban environment that I live in. It drinks petrol in traffic, it’s big to park and you cannot use the power. However, I don’t care about all that, I love driving it,  I love the noise and I’ll continue until  the eco mentailists  or the mayor makes it impossible. I’ve always loved muscle cars  and this is definitely a muscle car.

      In summary I’d say it is an evolution of the ISF, it rides better than my 2008 ISF, it feels more planted and agile  despite its size, and it has a slightly more bubbly exhaust note, but it still retains all the other ISF traits such as build quality that we are all familiar with. It is more relaxing to drive than the ISF due to the better ride. A couple of longish trips have been made with no driver fatigue whatsoever.

      It has of course been absolutely reliable, (but I haven’t yet done that many miles). Update after year 2.

      One glitch was a broken windscreen which took about 3 weeks to sort because Lexus couldn’t supply one right away. I hope this is not a flag that parts are going to be difficult because Lexus have only sold about 50 of these and their bean counters won’t be happy about stocking spares that might be slow moving. To be fair they did loan me a car for 2 of the 3 weeks.

      The much criticised mouse controller for the sat nav and audio is fine, it just takes getting used to and the sat nav now accepts full postcodes.

      The info display on the panel is a lot simpler than it looks, again just need to get used to it. Has a lot more information such as g forces, but it no longer has a battery voltage display! The car complains if the battery voltage is getting low though.

      The car has a lane departure warning system which can be set up to correct the steering if you wander out of lane. This has been turned off. The car is not driving, I am.

      It has speed limit detection which displays the speed limit on the dash and the HUD. The only thing is that some of the road signs near where I live confuse it and it displays “unusual” speed limits. Don’t think the magistrate  would accept that the car told me the limit was 90, when it was really 40.

      The headlights are pretty good but possibly not quite as good as the ISF.

      The 4 driving modes can be summed up:
      Economy and normal – no perceptible difference in feel or fuel consumption between these, feels slightly softer than the ISF in normal driving. Gearbox sometimes reluctant to change down when you boot it.

      Sport – similar to the Sport mode on the ISF. Gearbox more responsive. Nicer to drive in this mode. Fuel consumption similar to Normal and possibly a bit better providing you can actually drive the car rather than sitting in queues.

      Sport + -Don’t select this in the wet, there’ll be a lot of traction control warnings at even quite modest throttle inputs. Hangs on to lower gears for some time after you’ve finished accelerating. Very entertaining in the dry though and much easier to get the engine into the 3500rpm+  range. This is the mode that reveals the true brute character of the car, (when you get a chance to use it).

      I can’t say what Sport+  does to fuel consumption as the opportunities to use it for any distance haven’t been there.

      Haven’t tried the diff setting options yet.

      The finish on the car is superb, people have commented that even when it is obviously dirty it still shines. My car was a demonstrator so it may have been coated.

      Costs – Service due next week, but for some reason Lexus think it’s OK to put a £100 premium on the servicing costs over the ISF.

      Insurance – you have to shop around. Most companies load the premium because of the value of the car. I managed to get cover for about the same as the old ISF but had to accept a £750 excess which I covered for another £60.


      Not so good points:

      No spare and you can’t buy one in this country even though the handbook mentions a space saver. I don’t like the idea of a can of goo which will render the tyre unrepairable and probably screw up the TPMS sensors. Does anyone have any ideas where a spare can be obtained?

      The boot is enormous but the rear seats still don’t fold. Why??

      No passenger front seat lumbar adjustment – penny pinching on a £72K car! But the wife thinks  the seats are OK!

      Possible costs of brake pads and discs – horrendous costs have been mentioned on the forum for RCF items and the GSF uses the same parts. Non-Lexus parts seem to be unobtainable in the UK at the moment. Not an immediate problem  but one that needs to be kept under review. If anybody knows where to get RCF/GSF pads and discs from somewhere other than Lexus UK, please shout.

      So after being one of those 'lurkers' for the past few weeks and reading past threads I feel I'm up to scratch on the ownership experience of an ISF and all the usual things associated with owning your first. 
      Anyone know about this grey example on AT https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201710250637403?advertising-location=at_cars&transmission=Automatic&postcode=ox266eq&model=IS F&page=1&make=LEXUS&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New
      I know that as there only 200 or so in the UK that there's a chance one if you will know something about this one? Certainly as there are a couple of members from the south West. Wiltshire isn't officially south west in my book but worth a shot.

      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
      Aaron
