Hi all,

I'm very glad to have joined the Lexus Owners Club. I got my first Lexus, a 1998 facelift LS400 in Astral Black, a few days ago and am loving the superb quality and power.

My other car, as it were, is a bike - a BMW C1, the scooter with a roof (like in the avatar on the left). I guess that pretty much covers the motoring spectrum, from single cylinder 176cc at one end to V8 4.0L at the other!

Anyway, looking forward to joining in.

Hi, I'm in Yatton, not far from Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare. Who do you use for servicing? A spot of googling revealed a place in Warmley that looked pretty good (First Choice Toyota Specialist Ltd) - do you have any experience of them?

I'm just in the process of organising some Bluetooth car kit and a reversing camera. The car came with an ancient Nokia kit (including an ancient Nokia phone!) that gets in the way of the front passenger's right knee, so that needs to be changed, and I can't reverse to save my life so need all the help I can get. I've been a motorcyclist for many years, so reversing into tight spaces has not been a necessary skill!

I know Yatton well. Used to see a girl out that way a few years ago lol! Are you on Facebook? There's an IS200 group with a few members from here and other Japanese owners clubs. It's sort of a mini owners club and there's a meet down Cheddar second week of next month. I'm thinking of going if I'm not working.

I used Lexus Bristol, they were £90 more than that Toyota specialist in Warmly IIRC for the 100k service but I'll be honest I enjoyed the customer service, the free coffee and pastries and they put skysports news on the TV :)

Lexus also changed any bulb in my car that needed changing, exterior and interior without being charged, car came back fully valeted inside and out and they balanced all 4 wheels for no extra charge.

My car also came with an ancient mobile phone system. Had its own wires and fuses straight to the Battery, and like you say got in the way of the passenger seat. The cradle was bolted on as well. I ripped it all out as soon as I could.
