  1. I bought the plate in 2001, and have transferred it onto 3 new cars in 2007, 2014 and 2017, so as long as you are making your car look older, that's OK. You cannot make it look younger and "V" the last time was 2000. So any car after 2000 is OK , I think!
  2. I got this wrong, they estimated £500, so i guess no reasonable offer will be refused.

  4. My cherished plate is for sale as we are leaving Lexus this year. I bought it 19 years age with my first Lexus, a Silver IS200 Super. We now have our fourth Lexus an IS300h, which is how the IS has evolved over the years. I have been offered £500 from an online site, but I would rather it went to a LOC member. Please PM.
  5. My cherished plate is now for sale as we will be leaving Lexus this year. Iv'e had it for 19 years and 4 x IS300's. I've been offered £500 by an online website, so that means they will sell it for £525 at least, i'd rather it went to a LOC member. Please PM me.
  6. OK Rayaan, You cannot get one now, or in the next 6 months, and we had a test drive in a UX and rejected it as being too small in the boot/back and a bad ride because of the short wheelbase. The UX300e is coming 2021 by which time there will be a plethoras of EV's on the market.
  7. Here's my thoughts. We have had an IS200S, an IS250 Sport, an IS 300h and now have an IS300h Sport and this will be our last Lexus because we are going EV. Neither Lexus nor Toyota make a 100% electric car at the moment. We have driven "reserved" a Kia e-nero and also "been allocated" a VW First ID3. We see the market taking off this year with sales of EV's. We had to "reserve" the Kia 6 months ago because they had sold all of the 2019 allocation in the early part of the year. It is a very very good car to drive and as we have solar panels it kind of makes sense to go EV. The VW ID3 looks a very good car on paper, and VW obviously can see which way the market is going. I still cannot believe that Jaguar did not see the slump in the sale of diesel cars coming. Anyway it will be sad to leave this club, as we saw it grow from the 1990's to what it is today. Good luck all.
  8. Yes Roy, the VED would've gone from £10 (which we had to pay all at once) to £130, and if we had had leather seats the price of the FSport would have taken the price to over £40,00 which would have made it even more. The last thing we want is to give the government any of our money!
  9. Hi Derek, we had a bad time getting our IS300h in 2017, we wanted it to arrive before the VED rate went up after 1st April. Unfortunately so did a lot of other people as we went twice to Lexus Wolverhampton to await a transporter that did not arrive from Bristol. So our 1st March delivery was looking bad, the reason was that there were too many car transporter bodies but not enough tractor units. In the end Lexus Wolverhampton sent a low loader to Bristol and brought it back themselves.
  10. Lexus IS300h £40,000, satnav update £165 Garmin satnav £100, map updates FREE for life. Makes you think.
  11. We've come to the same decision. Don't want another IS. Looks like the UX will be too small, tested an NX and that was underpowered so that the engine was always "screaming". INHO. Also think they have missed the boat by not going for an all electric car, now that we have been bitted by the bug.
  12. Yes i've given up also. I get occasional message saying it can't download a route. I now use a separate Garmin in the car as it has all the speed cameras. Luxus satnav £40,000 with car. £200 plus to update maps. Garmin satnav £99. Lifetime FREE map updates!!!
  13. Thanks for all the replies, I think I will continue putting the odd tank of Shell in to dilute the Tesco or Asda fuel.
  14. Has anyone tried premium petrol in their IS300h? I've seen Honest John in the Telegraph twice say something like " why pay £40,000 for your car and put the cheapest petrol in the tank?".
  15. Spotted in Wellington, Shropshire today. Could have started a club meeting!
