    That is what I meant that since the other party might not accept a cash payment from you and insist on going through insurance then you will lose your excess anyway so might as well get your own car sorted .

    Love my Lexus is200 but want more out of it

    I would also go down that route if you can afford the initial outlay . I bought TRD supercharger kit for exactly 2k , had it fitted in my car for about 40k miles then removed it and sold the kit for £1950 and that was only because it needed a new spring that cost approx £50 . Make sure you keep all the stock parts so that you can return to standard. Best value mod I ever did ! I was actually not that impressed with the increased performance but the sound was awesome .

    Is the third party is making a claim against your insurance and is your wife likely to held at fault ?

    If the third party is making a claim you might as well get your car sorted as well since your insurance is going to hike up anyway. It will count as one claim even if either or both cars are fixed .
  5. My car in Lexus Glasgow today for service and MOT. No problems to report and no advisories on MOT so with 115k miles am happy with that but ... They send email with supposed link to video of health check and there is no video - only a copy of the check sheet . Now I have had this issue with them before since the covering email clearly states that they send a video pointing out the good and the bad if there are any . Last time they used the reason why we don't send a video was because there were no faults to show you so am expecting the same explanation again . I am maybe being fussy but I would have liked to have seen the technician going over the car . My question is firstly does anybody else use Glasgow and do you get video sent no matter good or bad news ? And second question what is the story at other Lexus dealers . ? Last time I raised it with them they simply said it was their local policy so I said they should not therefore send the same covering email but got exactly same email this time and like I say no video again . Cheers , Kevin

    Tyre size for upgrade

    I am needing two front tyres and am thinking going for the upgraded size but just wondering if OK to leave stock size on the rears until they need replaced - any views ?

    Anyone looking to sell ?

    That is one that I considered last February but decided against it due mainly to a conversation I had with Lexus Bolton who had serviced it . Wasn't keen on the interior either and also it only had one key . Was quoted £320 to replace that but it was the other issues that scared me off .
  11. Clearing out garage today and came across a set of used beige car mats for 2007 gs450h . I bought this set to replace a rather worn set in my car which had covered 180k. This set had come from a car that had done about 70k so are a bit worn but would do a turn for anyone that can pick them up from Freuchie in Fife . Cheers Kev
  12. Not sure how you manage to get free MOT's. Yes MOT cover but not the cost of the actual MOT surely ? My MOT cost half price but that is through service plan not the warranty .
  13. Touch wood I haven't used the breakdown cover but looked through the booklet and happy to discover it also covers my dearest wife for travelling in her car or me in her car . I reckon saves about £100 a year for decent joint cover so warranty only £347.50 per year . I haven't claimed off warranty yet either but only had it for 2 months . Timed it so I can renew for 2 years just before it is 10 years old .
  14. The warranty also includes decent breakdown cover .

    Isf for £38 k

    Thanks guys . The rears are asymmetric Dunlop sp sportmaxx so not directional and not driven too hard so will see over the next couple of days if it does feel any better . My first winter with the isf too . Might have to give some thought to winter tyres for next year .
