Hi Shafiq

Firstly welcome to the club. It is nice to see another GSF owner on here.

Our 2017 Sonic Titanium GSF had a Diamondbrite  Ceramic coating applied to it  at Lexus Newcastle when we purchased it in June 2019.  Other than the usual stone chips on the front bumper, the paint was in immaculate condition. Two weeks later, the bonnet was covered in Seagull poo, which despite me quickly removing it with Poorboys Bird Sh*t remover left well defined etching in the lacquer.  To say that I was annoyed was an understatement, but my Ceramic coating came with a life time warranty against such damage. I contacted Lexus Newcastle who put me in touch with Diamondbrite, however, before I could arrange for them to repair the damage, I noticed that the etching was beginning to fade whilst the car was left in the direct sun.  Some fellow members on here mentioned that  there was a self healing coat on  the car and  also that heat  carefully applied to the damaged area using a hair dryer can repair / fade the damage. I can confirm that the etching has now completely disappeared without any remedial work, so it may be worth just leaving the car in the sun ( if it ever returns this summer) to see if it fades the damage.

Not in the midlands. They're are a few of us around, and you may come across owners every now and then. 

I only know of one other GSF owner in Birmingham, but he's not a member on here. Think there are a couple of ISF owners around Warwick way. 

A meet at https://instagram.com/caffeineandmachine?igshid=16suu9nu6xrii wouldn't be too hard to arrange as it's not far. 

Not seen any RCF's or LC500s here.

Sorry to thread hack so to speak. I really need to get my car detailed and ceramic coated, can anyone recommend anywhere in the East Midlands, I have a place in mind, but always best to explore options, besides I  need to save a few pennies 😖

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
