Recommended Posts

I have decided to add an Insurance section to the forums. So if you are in the UK please answer the following

insurance company

Insurers Telephone Number

Typical Premium FC or TPFT (please note)

Type of car

Not sure How I am gonna do this.. maybe in the review section.. but if you could submit the info to help other members find the right insurance company that would be a real help to others. I will then work on implementing this to the website.

if I can then gets some insurance deals then I will post these.

Cheers Guys and Gals

Through the Club we have an insurance company that specialises in Cherished cars and the kind of enthusiasts who join the owners Club.

They understand us 'fanatics' as the main man is also a car enthusiast. Therefore they are more interested in knowing that you are the kind of person they want to cover, not so bothered about you making modifications etc. to improve your car - they have the sensible view that rather than increasing the risk - you make the car more valuable to yourself and so are less likely to park in bad areas etc.

Because I bought the IS200 as an additional car rather than replacing another car.... I have zero NCD to apply to the car. Brand new IS200SE, parked on the drive, 0 NCD, 3 points for speeding (Ooops), £720 for myself and my boyfriend (30 yrs old) including business use.

I suggest that the admin of Team Lexus give Jason a call, tell them that Sammy of Honda-R recommends him.... I do rate this company, with other insurers I have shopped around every year - I feel more loyal to this company, they now insure 4 cars for me and I will be getting a quote for house insurance come renewal!

Company - Livingstones Insurance

Tel : 0800 018 6258 (Speak with Jason)

Alkali, if you're still looking for a quote, you could try the company I'm with.

Premier Insurance, Winsford

£1500 Fully Comp, Business Class Insurance

25 yrs old, 0 No claims bonus (always driven a company car), 0 pts on licence.

A pretty good deal, considering they'll take on extraordinary cases as a challenge. My best quote was around £2500 just for Social and Domestic. I'm sure you've heard the laughter often enough when trying to get a quote and then being put through to Mr. Tone.

Eagle Star Direct,

Don't know the number see,

£2452 Fully Comprehensive and £350 compulsory excess... not bad considering I'm 18.

A word of warning though: these people won't let you do any modifications (not even a small boot spoiler :mad: ) no matter who you are

2000/X IS200 Sport

I cannot believe what you are all paying for insurance.......

I still think mine is pretty cheap at £700 when I have Zero no claims, 3 points on licence, 1 claim, parked on drive, brand new car (therefore if anything happens, brand new car to replace damaged one).... myself and boyfriend and business use.......

Business Class is always a killer. My policy above is based on 20k year total. Already done 10k since Jan. Luckily I know the chaps quite well and they can pull a few strings for me.:yes:

I agree, which is why I think my deal is a good one.......0 NCD elsewhere was getting me quotes more than double that one - and most were over £2k !!! I had to go for unlimited since I never know where I'll be based next..... but trust me - my broker is very understanding - since I now insure 3 cars with him, plus my boyfriend insures his....... I have the chap's personal mobile number!! lol

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.

      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”

      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.

      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.

      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
