  9. i just paid 71p in poole.. rip off down here.
  10. I used profess, speak to Andy. Lexus past 2005 i believe cannot be converted. But as your LS is 99 model you will be fine.
  11. i took extended warranty out for my old IS250. The dealer refurbished the wheels and After 9 months they started to bubble. So claimed a new set. Very expensive BBS wheels. When i had IS220d it was always in for warranty work, mounted up to many 1000's from engine gasket to a vibrating gear knob, made sure everything was sorted. Not one quibble from Lexus, True to their word. Not all about the engine and running gear reliability, it's worth it for annoying rattles from the interior or small annoying things that shouldn't be in a Lexus.

    Website problem?

    I would say this sounds like your browser is caching. If you see this again then hit the CTRL and F5 on your keyboard. if this updates then you are caching pages

  14. Welcome along Martyn. My Favourite colour interior!
  15. Does anyone else have any more IS200 or IS300 (1st Gen) buying advice?
  16. What problems would you advise others when buying a IS200? I am creating a buyers guide to help those who are looking to buy. I have some data but I would like further input please. I will make sure your credited in the guide for your contribution. This may take a month or two to compile so please add as many pointers as you can to this thread. I'll then place the guide up in a more prominent place when finished. thanks guys
  17. Please add what age group you are in so we can see what is the most popular age group of the LOC audience. cheers folks

    Lexus 24 Hour Test Drive

    Thats a shame Glyn. Keep your eye open in the future, these do pop up now and again. Hope your ankle gets better soon 🙂
  19. 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.
  20. Unfortunately, we have had some who have faked their membership to obtain discounts so we have restricted it to gold members eyes only. Sorry.

    LOC Golden Membership issue

    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.
  22. 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.
  23. one of the benefits of imports is the cheap road tax LOL
  24. I need to correct myself, interior is based on ABCD A being tops. B is the norm.
