I've believed for a while that there is a Supply problem as opposed to genuine high demand (i.e. Lexus have diverted their manufacturer of UK RHD or have made as many as the budgeted/forecast for UK, as opposed to too many being ordered and Lexus just can't make enough even at full tilt).

I read a while back that Lexus was expecting to sell 2000 more New IS's in the first year, but recently I have seen more and more on the road, various colours, all in the outside lane :blink:

So now I think it's a combination of lowish supply, and reasonable demand :duh:

Like you, it means prices stay higher...and looking at the used lots at the "Lexus Specialist Centres" the prices seem higher than what I would pay for a demo, though I am sure as ever you could haggle hard at this time of year and get a deal!!

I do hope you are referring to new orders :excl:

I ordered back in february, and am expecting mine in July - Interestingly......following a small "bollocking" my dealer / salesman has started emailing me with updates on ETD. Latest comms was on friday , with a comment that although no firm date is yet known, several other oredered cars have been arriving slightly AHEAD of ETD :D

Hi mate:-) Thanks for the link re: paint color - been away on hols, so sorry for delay, and my personal message system seems to have gone tits up - glad to hear that september delivery is only new orders...but actually seriously wondering if I should tell em to hold it until 56 plate starts - is this september 1st or what ?

Somewhere warm and sunny?

I would wait....if they will allow it. It's only 2 or 3 more months.

People in the trade say it's a waste of time...but IMHO it's worth it...if you can wait....your car will have all issues ironed out and it'll always be worth a few hundred squids more.

1st sept for new plate...

Mind you 'cos of the colour (which will be rare) it might be too late. It normally takes over 4 weeks to get here (incl. through ports etc), so assuming a delivery date of end of June, it'll be having bits bolted onto it right now....

Turkey...cough cough :lol: I might just let things roll along as I made so much fuss with them in the early days, and changed my mind about colour which contributed to the later delivery date. If I go talking about knocking back the date again, they might really start to see their behinds :excl: Was thinking I might just wait and see what time it actually arrives, and if it is reasonably close to August say, ....then maybe the dealer will sit on it for a week or 2 and give it the 56 plate?
