Yep, can't complain! Won't be getting rid of it, unless I crash.

  • Lexus: IS250 SE-L MM

Posted 27 September 2011 - 05:56 PM

Well the IS250 SEL is definitely the pinnacle of the following collection:
Passed test in 1989

1. 1975 Austin Allegro (Vanden Plas don't yer know) Metallic orangey/Diarroeah
2. 1986 Toyota 1.3 Corolla GL Saloon
3. 1990 Toyota 1.3 Corolla GL Saloon (From New 4 Speaker stereo - what a treat)
4. 1991 Toyota 1.6 Gli Corolla liftback executive - White. This was a quick car at the time and looked good in white!
5. 1995 Toyota 1.3 Corolla "sportif" 3 door From New (weird greeny aquamarine colour) Gone in a year - all Corrolla'd out (But there would be another..)
6. 1991 Peugeout 605 3.0 V6 SVE - Great drive - poor reliability. (Gone in 6 months at great cost!)
7. 1995 Nissan Almera 1.6 SRi Black. Plain boring and dreary to drive. (Dumped in 6 months)
8. 1998 Peugeout 406 2.1 TDI Saloon - Great car much better than the almera
9. 1994 Toyota Celica 2.0 GT (Automatic Import) No good for back passengers but great for moving house!)
10.2000 Renault Clio 1.4 sport. From new Hated it from get go. Written off after spinning off into a tree. Crashed very well though!
11.1998 Toyota 1.8 Avensis liftback. Good car. Didnt seem as well made as you expected though. Wasnt aging well - paint and fittings wise.
12.2003 Honda Accord 2.0 Saloon from new. Great car. Not as good as the 2.4 sport I test drove though! (2 years later I got rid to save money - didnt though!)
13.1995 Toyota Corolla 1.3 XLI 4 door hatch. Served a purpose - was quite liberating driving a shed. You could tell how far quality had improved over 10 years!
14.2005 Seat Leon 1.6 SX In black - from new. Lovely car (if a tad underpowered) Must have liked it kept for 3 years.
15.2006 Mazda 6 2.0 TDI Estate - nice blue colour. Not particularly economical felt like a racing car compared to leon. Swallowed a bike whole no problem!
16.2006 Lexus IS250 SEL Auto MM - Won over by the spec and more interesting interior than Beemer 3 which was going to be the choice..

Cars a guaranteed way to lose pots of money with no effort at all!
