  1. Does anyone else have any more IS200 or IS300 (1st Gen) buying advice?
  2. I have now added the new Lexus ES 300h club for everyone. Let the discussions begin 😄

    Thats a shame Glyn. Keep your eye open in the future, these do pop up now and again. Hope your ankle gets better soon 🙂
  4. Its the same because we also own FOC as well as Toyota. The discounts are all in the menu at the top, there are lists here Point taken and I will look at getting the list more prominent.
  5. Unfortunately, we have had some who have faked their membership to obtain discounts so we have restricted it to gold members eyes only. Sorry.

    Hi Guys All discounts were negotiated with the person listed. Dealers may seem suprised they have never seen one when in they have only been in the role a month or two. Dealer staff move about quite a lot. I have the email from Philipp who confirmed the discount last October. They are due to be contacted to renew for a further year. Unfortunately we have no control on dealer discounts and what they offer. We contact them and they complete the form and thats all we can do. Most will honour and over the 15 years we have only had a handful of complaints. What we usually say if anyone asks is to check with the dealer before taking up gold (not unless you are doing it to support the club) I will have a go at re-contacting the dealers to update the list.
  7. Because imports have no emmision testing / rating on the v5 so they cannot rate the car when it coems to tax. So they have a standard tax rate.
  8. one of the benefits of imports is the cheap road tax LOL
  9. I need to correct myself, interior is based on ABCD A being tops. B is the norm.
  10. Also, japanese dating system is different to ours, they are not in year 2018 LOL Japanase years are different, so expect to see comething like 2016 Heisei 28 2015 Heisei 27 2014 Heisei 26 2013 Heisei 25 so if you see 20 on service docs means 2008 which means the last 2 digits of our date system is 12 years behind. http://www.ewc.co.jp/Pages/Information/CalendarEN.aspx
  11. When you ask for auction sheet, keep an eye open for his reaction. I recently searched for an import and half the time the dealer avoided me, because this is quite an important document. It tells you the real condition of the car when it was sold. Things can be repaired here to hide anything. I recently overlooked a friends car who claims it was an action 4 exterior, he had dents all over the car, no way can it be an grade 4 exterior. Grade 4 (most common grade) which means its got a few small marks and stone chips, normal for a car that age. 3.5 will mean its for a dent and some scratches etc. 3 it's pretty bad condition 4.5 will mean it's spotless. Look for the R symbol. What a lot of dealers do, (not saying your dealer has) but they photocopy them with different numbers. Very easy to do. Get mileage verification, ask for a Bimta or Jevic mileage check certificate. Also vital.
  12. Is this a new import? If so do you have a copy of the auction sheet? top right hand corner of the sheet has a number, either 3, 3.5, 4 or 4.5 and then another underneath the same numbers. First one is condition of car and second is condition of interior. Both are vital to see and inspect any forgeries. Usually best to crawl over this document to make sure it has not been in any accidents. If the number has an R after it then its classed as a repair.

  15. Gold members can save around 15%, more in some cases depending on the dealer. I can see your in dublin Wayne , We only have Belfast as UK dealers only on our list. However, lexus do have some servicing offers normally on their website.
