Quick Questions Re:buying/servicing

Haven't been here for a while, and fingers crossed, todays the day I finally get around to buying an Is200. It's 4 years old with only 30k on the clock. It had a service at 10k, 20k, and now 30k, however I was under the impression it should be serviced whatever comes first, an extra 10k, or one year? Because with this car, it missed a year out (3 services, not 4)...last one just being done by the garage.

Also, I know the 60k service is a big one because of the belts that need changing. Is it definately 60k, or is it a 5 year thing, whatever comes first kinda thing? My brother tends to think cambelts should be changed every 5 years.

And my last question, I remember a few years back on here, someone mentioned a warranty that includes replacing tyres, and was the most cost effective way to buy tyres. Any details still about?

Well it looks like the last owner, had the car serviced every 10k, and not the yr thing. the owner might not have bothered one year as he didn't do many miles in that year.

Im sure the belt is 6yrs or 100k.

Dont know about tyres.
