Health Warning

Trust me on this.

Owning a Lexus is bad for your health.

Not during the experience, oh no, but afterwards, you suddenly realise how reliable and trouble free they are.

Take for instance, trying to start your car, you get a 'click click click', suggesting the Battery has gone flat.

Not something I had with my IS200 once in over 4 years and 50k.

It was so reliable, it dents your perspective on reliability, and as such, I seem to be suffering a huge amount of stress by the tiniest little fault my latest car develops...

Not good.

:lol:

no, not really.

The problem is, the IS200 was faultless, it really was, so set a benchmark...

Plus, the 911 is older with higher miles, and all it needed was a new lock part when i first got it - and now the Battery lost some charge (only down to 10v, but that Flat 6 needs a lot of current to crank it!).

It may need a new Battery, i'll have to keep an eye on it...

I can't complain really, its just funny how the Lexus gave me such a perspective, where having to buy a Battery charger felt like the end of the world! :lol: and Rob, i'm sure you thrashing it down country lanes had nothing to do with it :winky:
