  1. Out of 6 or 7 members helping with Paul’s request for a car only 2 or 3 have voiced an opinion on the U turns, as I said it tricky when you’re not restricted on price and several cars come up at once, for me the pale blue one ticked all the boxes . I’m sure other cars will come along over the winter months 👍🏻👍🏻
  2. Paul what’s the next move in finding a car, hopefully the advise gathered so far will make you a little wiser in buying an SC430 👍🏻👍🏻
  3. Did someone call my name 😎😎
  4. Couple of thoughts with your motoring problems , the GS300 of a similar age could share the same steering rack, worth looking into for used rack. with brake judder..rule of thumb from my car mechanic days....on braking ...judder through the peddle only rear brakes, judder through the steering front brakes. You could of had a pattern set of front brakes that have gone bad already or as suggested, Caliper slider has semi seized and caused one of the front brakes to over heat and distort.
  5. Congratulations on your purchase Richard, I’ve used Lexus for servicing by have the essential service which is a cheaper for cars over 5 years old . what colour and interior is you car 🤔
  6. Yes I’m happy it’s gone to a good home 😎😎
  7. plus... Reverse lamps have a different lens, gearbox has manual mode, Revised paint colours and wood dash choices, Radio has soft touch main buttons, Different wing side repeaters, Revised satnav system and don’t share the same update discs with earlier models 👍🏻
  8. Two guys deal with the admin both have busy day jobs ...so hang in there 👍🏻
  9. Nice to hear people being so positive about my old car and in my biased opinion 😉 probably the best available 👍🏻 why have I sold ? The corona virus has had a major impact on my family life and as the car was just for shows, meets and the odd sunny day, it was luxury I can’t justify this year . Think my thread on the LW covers the cars history from end to end but if you have any questions..fire away 👍🏻👍🏻
  10. That’s the darker blue..think it’s Westminster blue, this one as a knee air/bag on the passenger side, downside is a smaller glovebox and as you know now £580 road tax . As Nic says don’t need to be over worried about the mileage as cars in the States can do 200k plus without drama, for me 50-60k is a preferable mileage if you could find one. 👍🏻
  11. Here’s the link... https://www.liquidleather.co.uk/ ask for RUTLAND IVORY. ..and my post on the subject 👍🏻 https://forum.lexusownersclub.com/threads/leather-seat-rejuvenation.13611/
  12. Black leather as a general rule it’s almost maintenance free, whereas the ivory leather needs attention to keep it looking beautiful but does make the interior bright and airy. I was the first on the Lexus World forum to buy cream leather dye for my previous SC and it can up very well it was so bad I had nothing to loose, have since purchased a bottle of dye for my current Rutland Ivory interior and it’s looking in tip top condition 😎
  13. It’s also the more serious damaged category 😳 "What is a cat S write-off? (previously known as cat C) The ‘S’ stands for ‘structural’ damage but cars that fall into this category can be repaired. Unlike cat A and B cars, these can be made roadworthy but have to be fixed by a professional and also have to be re-registered with the DVLA."
  14. Well done nicnac that’s saved some heartbreak further down the line 👍🏻👍🏻
  15. Website called "Total car check" once you registered you can look up a few extra car details 👍🏻
