Afternoon everyone!

I'd like to finally introduce myself, my name is Charlie I'm 21 from Newcastle under Lyme. on Wednesday the 31st of January I purchased an absolutely perfect example of an ISF from Lexus Liverpool in Bootle, its a 2008 Starfire pearl with just 38k miles. I was trying to wait until I had actually collected the car which was supposed to be yesterday morning but due a "technical difficulty" an invoice could not be produced for some bizarre reasons but I understood that these things can and do happen. 

The situation has since been resolved with Lexus apologizing for the inconvenience and delay and have offered to put me in the misses up in formby hotel and spa for the night prior to collection with lifts arranged both from the trains station to the hotel and the hotel back to lexus, they have also promised a 1st class showroom experience so I'm eager to see what awaits. I'm absolutely thrilled by the experience I've had with Lexus and can not wait to pick the car up on Tuesday morning. (Bar the mess around with pieces of paper).

 

I've been a member of the forum for about 4 years now but on the IS200 side so it's a fair upgrade but I just couldn't bring myself to part with the IS so I'm keeping it for just a daily.

I really can't wait to meet all my fellow Lexus members at future events and just chatting on the forums! 

I don't really have any photos of the car yet, I used my eyes on the day and I thought I'd be driving away in it in 2 days time but have an advert shot or 2!😁

Thanks

@ThebigC Welcome on board Charlie she's a beauty, and we all know you are going to love her, there are as @Flytvrmentioned a few odd characters on here...... but who they are will become self evident in time.

The most important thing is you are a getting a previously pampered one 😁

Thanks @Big Rat as you know I've been after one for a while so I'm itching to collect it! I think I'll fit in quite well judging by what I've seen so far 😉.

Credit to its previous keepers!

Thanks

Lovely car. And the odd characters have already posted above here :D

I'd never let a dealer apply or sell me paint protection. But each to their own. Doesn't affect how fast it goes :D

Well it's not done by Lexus per say they have Gen3 come out and apply it to the vehicle themselves@Comedian. I got suckered into anyway when he said it would protect my baby I was sold 😂

Congrats on the new car @Big Rat and a happy belated birthday! I've just seen your post! Did they offer you the Gen3 package with your RCF?

@ThebigC Thanx Charlie they did but as I mentioned car detailing has never been my thing, I'm fastidious about maintenance but a bit of a bucket wash and micro cloth dry man.

Ive realised that there are a few on here well more than a few and I'm going to get some advice from them so I can do stuff myself 👍

Congrats and welcome looks like a little beauty you've bought there. Is the gen 3 business ceramic coating if so I had a well known detailer do mine and it's the best thing I've ever had on any car I've owned make cleaning loads easier nothing seems to stick to it.

@Northern isf Yes it is the Ceramic paint coating, its the only one approved for Boeing aircraft and a similar formula to what NASA use of spaceship's. 

That's brilliant to hear! Atleast it actually works rather than another way to get extra coin! How long have you had yours on for buddy?
