  1. IIRC there were around 11 registered in 2017 and approximately 8 2018/18 cars following this. No idea how many of those would have a sunroof but the ML system was a very popular option. Good luck, it’s a cracking car.
  2. Im not sure about that. We have had a 2007 and a 2011 IS250, both had a space saver spare wheel. What trim is your IS250? Maybe it was omitted on the bottom spec S trim?
  3. No. You have separate main and dipped beams. I’ve never heard of the electro mechanical switching system on either the HID or Halogen systems fitted to the 2IS. I was always under the impression that both were a two build system. I think the dealer is referring to a BI HID / Xenon system. This was not available on the 2IS range but is standard on the 3IS iirc. @LenT what generation is your IS250, it sounds like you have a 3IS?
  4. I paid £1590 for a two year extended warranty on our IS250 in 2012, before the 2-4-1 offer was introduced shortly afterwards 🤦🏽‍♂️
  5. Unfortunately not but thanks for trying. The thread mentioned the OPs blue car and I think a couple of people’s opinions on the dealer and car, but I can’t for the life of me find it.
  6. The fuel pump on our GSF was replaced under the extended warranty. I always thought that it was strange that the extended warranty for the ‘F’ models cost the same as their normal counterparts. Maybe it is because there are so few of them that the ‘risk’ is spread across their respective IS/ RC / GS range, where as the LS and LC are standalone models 🤷🏾‍♂️
  7. I’m really sorry but I can’t seem to find it at the moment but I’ll keep looking.
  8. I’m sure that car has been discussed on here recently. I’ll see if I can find the thread, or maybe someone will beat me to it!
  9. Very nice. I will always have a soft spot for these cars. Part of me wishes I kept it as a daily. Are those NX alloys? I’ve never seen them on a 2IS. Mine was one of the first with the DRLs. I had the F Sport front lip added by the dealer along with the GFX spoiler.
  10. Yes, viewing in person is the only real way. I agree they are relatively rare cars though. We had a facelift IS250 SE-L for 8 years in that colour and I loved it. Our RX 450h is also in that colour, although it looked a slightly different shade to the IS when we had them both parked next to each other.
  11. Yes I agree, I always assumed that piece of plastic was just cosmetic to hide the boot latch. The boot on our IS250 failed to close shortly after it was repaired after being rear ended. It required a whole new locking mechanism, which was sourced and fitted by Lexus Bristol with in 24hrs. I think the OPs problem it’s most likely something to do with the locking mechanism in the boot lid than that piece of plastic.
  12. I love this colour on the 2IS. I’m not sure I would assume that it has been well looked after though from two ropey photos and a poor description. I never understood why people don’t vacuum their car when taking photos for adverts. Also that’s a lot of power from a 0.25 litre engine. More that the standard 2.5 litre it usually comes with 😞.
