Sorry this is OT but you're not on Riverside are you?

I've seen quite a few IS250's in town and most are around there...

That's some serious milage you do there though, how long are you planning to keep this one?!

Yeah I'm from the area, there are a couple of IS250's in the Riverside area, where Markham Works used to be behind the train station, and then I see one down Ashgate Road quite a lot!

Just wondered if it was you that I keep seeing!

Sounds like you'll be getting the train for the next 29 months then :o

Nah nothing's as common as those!

Andy Hart lives up your way, it's nice and quiet up that way, will keep an eye out next time I'm up there - you'll probably hear me driving along at some point as I've got to pop round and show him the new V300!

So what are you actually going to do regarding the milage on your car now exceeding the three year allowance - will work just pay the penalties or will you change to another one soon?

Hmmm...8 months and 3,800 miles, as most of the time I'm driving a Hertz yank tank. :whistling: If I'd known how much time I'd be over here I wouldn't have splashed my £33K in December 2005. :angry:

I've just passed the 21000 Mark, I got the car 7th December.

I agree, MPG is now around 31mpg and it still feels good to drive. Find myself using the sequential gearbox aquite a lot, as I find it makes the drive more engaging :D

The reminds me, Need to get it booked in for service, does anyone know how much the 20k service costs?

Eight months and 11000 miles.

Collected the car on July 7th; 1 month and a week later I have 9200 km = approx. 5716 miles. I just love it.

Noticed that after 4900 miles I started to have a better mileage.

If I calculated and converted everything well, then I have these numbers:

From the beginning 'till 4900 miles I had 31.36 mpg

After 4900 miles (and some calmer driving) I started to have 35.11 mpg

The car gets looser and looser, the gears are getting smoother...

I JUST LOVE IT !!!!
