    I know its not the same car but I remember working with a guy who was driving his XKR back from a service when the engine let go locking up going through the bonnet and taking out the gearbox at the same time. He managed to collect some of the oil pouring out of it and won his case that jag had filled it up with the incorrect oil. (must have filled it with Tar if you ask me but that was the story) It didn't help my nervousness on cars built by JLR anyways.

    There was a post only a few weeks ago about this very subject. The consensus was to avoid them. Personally I've had poor experience with Jags. Very nice to drive. Very expensive to run and maintain. Mine was in the shop every verse end with endless error messages. Plus, regardless of your current age, you always look like you borrowed it off your dad!

    Just got home after another day of brilliant service from Lexus Liverpool.. think they will be glad see the back of me😂. Some photos of it in the showroom and one of it in its new home.. Didn't stay white for long that's for sure! So happy with it and can't wait to get involved with you lads on the forums and at events. Thanks all for your kind words ❤️

    From what my mates tell me, you need a nice emergency fund just in case. The running cost of an F is a major reason I’ve gone that route. The thought of sleepless nights, big payouts......doesn’t appeal

    I'm wearing that chip as a badge of honour 😏 It seems to be warding off any further damage, so far anyway.... If one's car has the more standard metallic finishes it would be cheaper to repair and be far less noticeable once touched in.

    Mine is treated with Gardex that was applied by the Dealer as part of the deal &, to date has required no cleaning agents. A few on here were critical of Gardex (me too if I am honest) but it clearly works as does the Specialist Leather Technician Lexus used to resolve the crease in my replacement rear seat cushion. The chap promised me his repair was permanent & after 12 months the crease has yet to reappear. Chuffed Tel

    Is this the Lexus Dealership, top of the pops? Now there's an idea.... 🤔.

    True enough, like the cars I had when I first started driving, looking down to see the road beneath me.

    I've dealt with 4 dealers - Stoke - 4/10 Bristol 3/10 Swindon 6/10 Cheltenham - (servicing) 10/10 They have been awesome and seem really interested in F cars. I was there just before Xmas, and Alex sat and talked with me for a whole hour. Great people.

    I find Lexus Cheltenham brilliant with their customer service and the service manager there Matt is a IS-F buff, so we owners get treated really well and made to feel like that extra special customer along with our cars, and they are also very fair with their prices and deals when it come to servicing/warranties etc, that is why i travel nearly 1 1/2 hours to get there, also for the ride home, as nothing better than a fully valeted /serviced IS-F to cover the miles back home with a smile on your face.

    Phil-I just had fish for tea! Albeit, not spooned to me! You pick up my point exactly. Take the Nissan Micra-or a Corolla. Keep changing shape but not name. Even on this site we still get folk asking the differences between 'series'/models. Imagine looking at a yaris. The limo look works, as it was designed to do. With CAD design, it seems designers get carried away. I leave with THIS design pic.... ds garden.bmp

    I'm a bit like you in your thinking. The reason I wanted an LS in the first place is because of the classic limo look. To me that went after the demise of the LS430. All LS's up to that point looked fantastic to me. I have seen the new LS which of course is a beautiful machine that is light years away from my budget, but it doesn't do for me what the earlier ones did. Just as well really, by the time I could afford one someone would be spoon feeding me boiled fish for dinner!

    Well done Mike. Piddly advisories for a car of that age. Most other makes would have a list as long as a giraffe's trousers!

    Welcome to the club bud.. i had a white one not so long ago and i tell you one thing, they always look stunning what ever the weather. It has a beautiful pearl finish. I love the white in a ISF... ok then... if i must show a picture..

    Is the agreed value definately what they'll pay out should the vehicle be a write off? Sounds silly but I was always led to believe that ultimately it's still the insurer's call and if they think it's worth X and you think it's Y you'll still only get X. You can see I'm quite trusting when it comes to insurance companies...

    Fair enough, maybe the warranty is not affected but resale value certainly will be How many people do you know that will buy a car without a service history costing more than £30k?

    Pad compound makes a big difference. I've fitted performance pads to many cars and the harder compounds definitely squeel when cold. Think it's down to the way they vibrate in the calliper when cold. Maybe they just needed bed in, tends to happen in a couple hundred miles though. Are ISF callipers different to the GSF? I know discs are slotted rather than drilled

    Was just curious if any F owners have moved to/from a Jag XFR (2010 model) and if you have, what was your experience in owning one. I ask because i saw one in the flesh and it has really made me consider having one, it looked great. I did consider one before i had my first ISF, but then had my heart set on a F. So lets hear from the XFR owners pre or post F.

    My car in Lexus Glasgow today for service and MOT. No problems to report and no advisories on MOT so with 115k miles am happy with that but ... They send email with supposed link to video of health check and there is no video - only a copy of the check sheet . Now I have had this issue with them before since the covering email clearly states that they send a video pointing out the good and the bad if there are any . Last time they used the reason why we don't send a video was because there were no faults to show you so am expecting the same explanation again . I am maybe being fussy but I would have liked to have seen the technician going over the car . My question is firstly does anybody else use Glasgow and do you get video sent no matter good or bad news ? And second question what is the story at other Lexus dealers . ? Last time I raised it with them they simply said it was their local policy so I said they should not therefore send the same covering email but got exactly same email this time and like I say no video again . Cheers , Kevin

    It baffles me how Adrian Flux do any business; I’ve never been able to get a sensible quote out of them. I’ve always lived in decent areas, not done many miles, generally been a low-risk driver. They’ve always flat out refused to quote me (as I’m a young driver in a powerful car - I was 27 and had a diesel Mondeo) or quoted such a sky-high price, not even Bill Gates would consider it! I’d put your details into a comparison site, choose the top 3, then get quotes from them directly. End of the day, all insurance companies can be bad or good to deal with - it’s just luck of the draw. You might as well save a few quid.
