  1. It was, I would have lived with the rattle otherwise.
  2. Exactly the same problem with my LS. Complete sealed unit, had to change the whole centre console. Cost £4,500
  3. Looks fantastic. Wheels are amazing, scuffed mine, had them powder coated, not the same. Might have to invest in new ones. Drive carefully and stop grinning.
  4. Looks very smart, and if you got it for the asking price (or maybe lower) you've really had a great deal. Bought mine from Motorline, nice people. Good luck for tomorrow.
  5. Believe me, you wont regret buying the LS. Had mine for just over 2.5 years and am still finding things out about the car (LS owner for 20 years and this is my 7th LS). Re the run-flats; not noisy unless you have a puncture. This is my first car with rf's and when I had a puncture I called the AA as I thought one of the wheel bearings had gone. There was a recall on the tyres earlier this year, Bridgestone recall, all 4 replaced FOC. Run flats not repairable £280 each. Voice commands are a little disappointing, my last LS600h had many more functions (one thing I miss is the temp control function) The cars do have a serious ''road presence'' you'll be amazed how many people remark on it's looks. You wont realise how special these cars are 'til you've had it for a year and then one day you have to drive an 'Ordinary car' Check the switch opening the fuel filler, few problems reported, rectified under warranty. Good Luck, you'll be grinning from ear to ear next week. Graham.
  6. Straightforward replace tyre. Lexus won't repair Runflats. A 1/2 inch screw caused a £237 Bill.
  7. RAC fella put a plug in. Phoned around this morning, no one (that I rang) repairs Runflats. Booked in tomorrow at Lexus for new tyre. Bugger really, had 4 new ones replaced 5 weeks ago re a call back.
  8. As title says. Puncture in my offside rear this morning. Called RAC, temporary fix, told it was repairable but not sure if I fancy that. Anyone with any experience?
  9. The cynic is coming out of me now. How or Why would any company start giving away potentially millions of ££££ in free warranties. I've read the T's & C's on the Lexus website and it does read that way. I just can't get my head around it. They're literally giving every new car now a 10 year warranty absolutely free of charge (even though you must service at a Lexus Dealership, which you had to anyway) I've checked the date and it doesn't say 1st April. Am I being too cynical for my own good?
  10. Had this camera fitted at Lexus last week. I hour wait, £275. Really pleased.
  11. Paul, have just re-read the opening line of your post. Go for it, you'll be regretting it for quite a few years if you let it go.
  12. Hi Paul, welcome to the LOC. Jemca are a Lexus main Dealer. I would have no worries about buying sight unseen as they are ultimately answerable to Lexus UK if any problems arise. I bought a LS 460 from Lexus NI after just seeing 5 photos on Autotrader (no problems). My previous LS600 was purchased from Lexus Edgware Rd, (one of 3 sites that Lexus Jemca operate). Nice people to deal with.
  13. Mine's going in next Monday, all day job.
  14. So annoying. On my 2008 LS600 I could state what temperature I wanted the climate to be and also suspend route guidance. The 2018 LS500 has no temperature controls and you have to go through 2 mouse clicks to delete the sat nav. Feels like a step backwards. Then again, these cars are so clever I wouldn't be surprised if it's just me not knowing how to do it. Then again, this is my 7th LS, so I do know a little bit about them.
