  1. Just being sent this on FB, What a lucky man the driver have walked out alive from this crash, tells us how well built our cars are!!
  2. There’s another blue one owned by my mate’s friend Karl, so that’s 4 locally then, common As muck 😂
  3. Hi Nick Is your ISF black by any chance because I always see a black one parked outside a house in Rainhill when going to My mates. Also there’s a blue one local as well.
  4. I’m pretty much the same, had 5 type Rs in a row, then one day thought to my self I need to move on and try something different. Bought the ISF 4 years ago and it wasn’t until last year I decided I need to have another type R, so imported a fresh one from Japan with only 9k miles on clock with the intention of keeping forever being the last NA type r. I did sat in the FK8 last time I was in the dealership, looked massive in person and thought the styling were a bit busy. Maybe 1 day it will grown on me.
  5. Congrats on the purchase of the FK8, still not convinced on them yet. IMO this is the last real type R. 😜

    Is200T owners?

    Hi doog any chance of a photo of the area between the battery and bonnet strut, just want to confirm my wires are all okay.

    Is this normal?

    It’s the wires going into the black fuse box on the left, any IS200T owners can confirm with a photo. Thanks
  8. Was doing the engine oil level check on the IS and spotted something unusual. The bunch of cables going into the fuse box next to the battery isn’t protected by any conduit but wrapped in electrical tape only, this doesn’t seem right to me. can someone confirm wether this is normal?
  9. Have the same dialema with my 2011 ISF. Car is due it’s annual service on 1st March, having only covered around 2k miles and currently stored away during winter, I’m thinking of stretch the interval a couple of months and have it serviced in May with Lexus when the car is back out. Altough I said to myself I’ll never sell her but you never know, would you be put off by the car because it’s not serviced at 12months interval as it’s been stored away?

    This happened!!

    Looks an excellent job! Dropped mine off at the RRG bodyshop in Bolton on Monday for repairs, should be done next week. From the top photo it looks like it can be removed by a dent removal man? what alloy wheels is on the car in the first pic?

    Good to hear they're up to standards Rayaans, I went direct to them rather than through Lexus Bolton, do you know if I can still request a Lexus loaner.

    Thanks all for the advice, looks like I may go down the insurance route and have Rrg accident repairs to carry out the work because the age of my car and are Lexus approved, atleast I have some sort of comeback if I'm not happy with the job. estimate came back at £2.5k.
  13. Wife scraped the side of the IS on a low wall last night, only 7months old!! Just been to the rrg body shop in Bolton for them to have a look, needs new rear door, and skirts, front door can be repaired, not looking forward to the quotes they'll be emailing me. Reading this article, apparently the Azure Blue is a very tricky paint to match? Anyone had paint done in this colour and how do you find the finish and match? Will also be going to a local highly recommended bodyshop for them to have a look.
  14. Ctek 5.0 arrived thanks Amazon for the lightning delivery! Just not sure what charge mode to use on a perfectly healthy battery AGM or Recon?
  15. Ctek MXS 5.0 ordered and will arrive tomorrow evening, thanks!
