Unless you happen to have a supercharger fitted to your F! Lol. :lol1:

Must admit, Lexus Canterbury have always taken care of me. Car is babied by them. :thumbup:

I'd be less inclined to thrash a supercharged/modified car, based upon my experience id worry I was going to break it!!

Every car I have modified, some heavily, I have ruined somehow.

I've destroyed some lovely cars! Lol

Comes with the territory to some extent, although the RR-Racing kit has been extensively tested by Rafi, Simon and some US owners with no issues I know of.... was one engine failure, but believe that was heavily drag raced with NOS prior to adding the supercharger.

Just need to treat it right, warm up properly, proper servicing etc.

So... i called Lexus bham today and firstly thanked them for completing the air bag recall then thanked them for cleaning the car inside out then explained how a 12mile round trip turned into a 25miles run (being very calm)

The explaination: after the airbag(top dash) is fitted we check to see any rattles etc to make sure there are no issues and also if any warning light may appear.

Me: is you test run up n down the road were GSF parts is?

Lexus: yes thats correct it about a mile.

Me: so how do i have 25 miles on my trip i reset on collection when the whole process is about 15 miles.. 10 miles is nothing but the fact is my car had been driven additionally to my approval..why? Why is my gauge showing just over a 1/4 when i gave you just over 1/2.. 20£ wont make me richer or put a dent in your dealership..but it a matter of principle.

Lexus: sorry sir i will get to the bottom of this and call you back..i can assure you the car had not be abused..we have a GSF, a RCF packed as demos to drive and so on.

Me: look i dont want petrol cost or anything of you all i want is a explaination by tomorrow.

Lets see what they come back with.. i also need to take the sat nav out a readjust it as there is a gap on one side bigger then the other (happens when one side is tightened before the other).

I'll update once i get a reply.

When I say ruined, I tend to mean I've either made it undrivable or so compromised that it's ridiculous as a road car.  Fitting things like fixed back bucket seats or chasing big power.  Fitting rock hard suspension and massive wheels or stripping the interior

I find Lexus Cheltenham brilliant with their customer service and the service manager there Matt is a IS-F buff, so we owners get treated really well and made to feel like that extra special customer along with our cars, and they are also very fair with their prices and deals when it come to servicing/warranties etc, that is why i travel nearly 1 1/2 hours to get there,  also for the ride home, as nothing better than a fully valeted /serviced IS-F to cover the miles back home with a smile on your face.

I've dealt with 4 dealers -

Stoke - 4/10

Bristol 3/10

Swindon 6/10

Cheltenham - (servicing) 10/10

They have been awesome and seem really interested in F cars.

I was there just before Xmas, and Alex sat and talked with me for a whole hour. Great people.
