Hi Everyone,

Picking up a lovely USB ISF on Saturday - FD13 BWM.

Wondered if the previous owner was on here at all?

Cheers

Congratulations. 

Was that the one from Portland with around 22k on the clock IIRC? If so then I think the previous own was on here.

Glad to see someone has finally decided to save her languishing on a dealers forecourt. Once their pricing became more realistic anyway. 

You will enjoy her, she's had a lot of love 😎

Yes the one from Portland!

Bodywork is in amazing condition! PhoeNicks, you the previous owner?

All the best!

Yes. I had a full paint correction done and ceramic coating applied. The Bodywork and wheels should be blemish free...

Yes what a lovely car. A testament to its previous owner

@PhoeNicks what made you sell up, if you don’t mind me asking?

Did you have any issues with it? Do you know when it was last serviced before you got rid of it? Cheers

Yeah I owned for a couple of years before Nick. 12k on the clock and I took it upto around 22k. Great car but it would sit in my garage not getting used for weeks at a time so it was time to make way for another toy. During my ownership I had it fully detailed and ceramic coated, lots of micro scratches hidden by super resin polish lol. I also put a set of brembo discs on the front due to corrosion. That was it.

Hope you enjoy it, awesome bit of kit to drive in manual mode.

The plan was to get a toy for weekend fun and run the ISF during the week. In the end that plan didn't make as much sense, especially when factoring in the arrival of our first child. We have another family car too, so I had to let the ISF go. Sad really because I'd invested quite a bit of time and effort to get it the way I wanted. They are fabulous cars; reliable and understated. The colour left an impression too.

No, no issues at all. It was serviced by Lexus Edinburgh in March I think, sailed through its Mot also. Like I said, great cars and it will be missed. My toy is definately a bit lacking in the comfort and smoothness categories...

Awesome can’t wait to pick her up!

One other question. It’s a 2013 but it has the older wheels on.  I right in thinking in 2012 they changed the wheels for a different style and they were wider?

So, have the wider wheels been replaced with the older narrower ones, or did they also make that design wider too?

The car is on its original wheels. I know there was an optional style released which may have become the standard fit in the US... The guys here can here can help you out on the trivia...

They're the standard wheels for that age still. The other version was an option. No difference in size either.

If the answer to that question is "no" i'll eat any farmyard animal you want to choose. Live or dead 🤔

Of course I test drove it 🙂 ! I kind of knew what to expect in a way as I’d driven an RCF a fair few times.

I was just curious as to the history really!

This is my 5th Lexus now but plan on keeping this one!

    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
