Hello John, Am trying Lex Tech of So’ton this week, for a check-up and full service for my ‘07 / 94k GS450h SE-L acquired 3 October. They collect/deliver in W.Sussex, and am impressed with the handling of my enquiry and the quotation. Will document my actual experience. Have driven the car 500 miles to “warm it up” as it had done almost no miles this year. Average so far 35mpg, using the torque as necessary. What a marvellous, quiet, machine. ‘03 SC430 has its MoT this week: a superb grand tourer.

I’ve decided to get my local independent engineer (who’s been very helpful since 2016) to service the GS450h.

My local engineer did a full service on my ‘08 104k LS600h L RSR last summer. Reasonable cost, I liked that he took out and replaced one of the 8 titanium spark plugs to check wear, rather than simply replace all, expensive, 8. Engineers who repair rather than replace show their confidence in their craft.

Why did he not replace or check,the other 7 given that he found it necessary to replace the one he removed ,Manuel ?

My ambiguous English, John: he re-installed the sample plug because it did not need replacing.
