  1. Just a couple of things I would change, break dust problem, its a pain having to watch this to prevent thye wheels getting marked and on uneven roads would like just a bit smoother ride, but saying that 46,000 miles still love it
  2. I think the poster was saying that the oil capacity is greater, not that it "used" it between changes ;) Hi I HAVE DONE 43,000 MLS NOW, SERVICING NOT MUCH DEARER THAN THE IS250 IN THOSE MILES i HAVE TOPPED THE OIL UP 3 TIMES BETWEEN SERVICING, MY TYRES ARE BRIDGESTONE, LAST ABOUT 21,000 MLS COST £200, DIDNT BOTHER WITH ANY EXTRA SERVICING INSURANCE, HAD TRACKER FITTED, INSURANCE £300 THATS BECAUSE i MUST BE AN OLD GEZZER, JUST KEEP THE WHEELS WASHED WELL THATS THE ONLY THING, GO FOR IT
  3. It is well worth looking absolutely everywhere for the best quote which is unlikely to come from comparison sites. For me it turned out to be from Direct Line where I had been insured for several years - and although it has risen each year, still is. My renewal at the end of February was £499 to include unlimited mileage, business use and £625 excess. Protected no claims discount, legal protection & guaranteed hire car brings the total to £640. In my case, none of the specialist insurers could get anywhere near this, and most were at least double this figure and demanded huge excesses. If you intend to keep the ISF for a while, it is worth looking into Lexus Prepaid Service Plans and separate, but quite cheap insurance for tyre damage. Another small point: The ISF ride loses a lot of its initial harshness after a bit of use. Enjoy! Hi just a point did you have to have a tracker fitted in order to get cover for thieft with direct line thanks
  4. you say that you are seriously considering selling the vehicle, if it was that bad you would definetly sell, especially if it doesnt feel safe.
  5. Hi IVE HAD BOTH AND OF COARSE THE ISF IS A SLIGHTLY HARDER RIDE BUT i USE IT AS A FAMILY CAR AND YOU SOON GET USED TO IT AS FOR THE SEATS MY FATHER- IN -,LAW IS DISABLED AND WE HAVE NO TROUBLE IN GETTING HIM IN OR OUT THE DOORS ARE SO WIDE AND THE SEAT IS PUT BACK TO GIVE HIM MORE ROOM, THE GOOD THING IS WHEN YOU TAKE THE OLD LADY OUT SHE WILL GET THERE QUICKER, ALSO THE LIP ON THE EDGE OF THE SEAT DOESNT POSE ANY PROBLEMS WITH ACCESS, SIGN THE CHEQUE.
  6. I run 39 front and 36 rear - for comfort I drop both ends to 36 but it tends to wash out at the front so if I'm off on a decent trip on my own I prefer to sacrifice a bit to get better turn-in. Thanks For that, I had new rears fitted and wasnt quite sure what was best, Thanks again
  7. Just wondered what tyre pressures you boys have in the rears thanks
  8. There have been comments about this here and in the USA. The big enemies of the bolsters are jeans where the fabric is coarse and abrasive - wearing away at the surface treatment of the leather while getting in & out . Unfortunately, the more supportive the seats; the worse it is because you have to slither over tall side bolsters. A really good example of this was the Peugot 306 where there was a big problem of wearing completely through the covering on the bolsters of fabric seats within a only couple of years. It was and is a problem with other cars too. You would think though, that Lexus should have been aware and reinforced the bolster surfaces taking into account that 2/3 of the world wear jeans or other abrasive garments - even if it meant the bolsters weren't quite as pretty. Hi I had wear problems on my drivers seat right on the edge as you get in, the black wore away showing the blue underneath, this was after 6000mls, lexus changed the cover no trouble
  9. Hi chaps, Average 32 34 on motorway, but then again wouldnt have bought car if I wanted to save money, had it 20 months now 33000 miles worth every pennny, had front seats changed at Lexus due to wear after 6000 mls and rear wheels changed at Lexus due to paint blebbing and flaking off, worth every penny.
  10. Keep it in the garage mate I live in the countryside roads dont get any salt, any car struggles on the ice, snow isnt so bad just packed ice, and also it doesnt have to be your fault. Ive been using the works van safer, saves miles, prevents salt damage, not that there is any salt.
  11. Hi got mine from Quik fit all 4 bridgestones £800-00 was fitted well, carefull with wheels oldn ones managed 21,000 mls Just noticed your mileage on rears do you go drag racing ?

  13. I went and picked mine up from Lexus today after they'd had it for two days to sort the wheels out. They have refurb'd all four to what appears to be a very high standard. I was hoping they'd replace with new, but having seen the standard of the refurb, I'm not unhappy. I will ensure they are now kept clean. This isn't too difficult for me as I don't go far anyway and as I don't work, I have plenty of time to do these things. I'll keep my eye out for paintwork damage on the door seals. I don't have any as yet. Hi bought mine new 15months ago now 26ooo miles, clean wheels 3 or 4 times a week so not to bad but back wheels have started to bleb paint, lexus are going to sort on the next service and i have kept a photographic record, only other problem I had was wearing on the front seats, this showed the blue through the black on the back of the seat, this started after 5,500 miles but lexus changed these, well pleased with car
