  1. I saw another LS600 in the Sainsbury's car park in Nantwich! Just down the road from me. Anyone here? Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  2. Not a problem at the moment thankfully. A local Lexus dealer is a big help too. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  3. I must admit I like the rarity angle. My wife has a Qashqai and it is probably not an exaggeration to say that we see around 10 every time we make the short trip (2 miles or so) into the town centre. No danger of that with an LS! Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  4. True that! And what a great office environment it is.
  5. Interesting figures indeed. Thanks. So, in your daily experiences driving around, do you ever spot another one? As mentioned, I've not seen another one on the road yet and I've been in mine for about a month.
  6. I've been enjoying driving around in my new (to me) LS600h. I guess I've done a couple of thousand miles already with trips to Swansea, Cornwall and numerous runs up and down from south Cheshire to Manchester and Stockport. I've yet to see another one on the road! I quite like this rarity and it has become a bit of a running joke with my kids, who enquire (often with a touch of sarcasm it has to be said) about the latest updates on the LS600h hunt. But it got me thinking too. I've seen a couple of LS400s over the same time period, but how many LS600 are there and how often do you see one in your travels?
  7. Rather than sitting in Morrisons whilst my daughter swims, I've taken to working from the back seat in the LS600h. It is the most comfortable office one could imagine! Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  8. As someone with minimal mechanical skill (but a little knowledge), I can only stand amazed at the job you have done here! Great work and hope the new alternator and pump give you many happy years of motoring in the LS.

    Welcome to the LOC! What a lovely looking car. Hopefully you have picked it up by now and are enjoying it?

    Intro and initial thoughts on my 2006 Lexus RX 350

    Welcome and thanks for your write up on the RX. I've just got back into a Lexus following two years in a Honda (now my second favourite car brand!). You can beat a big Lexus for ride comfort and quality. Enjoy your time here.
  11. I don't suppose you remember the seller do you? I bought some off eBay for a previous car and they were very poor. Seems like a bit of a lottery in terms of quality and there are so many to choose from! That said, for £20 it is probably worth a punt isn't it!
  12. Just back from a trip to Cornwall in the new LS600h. It performed faultlessly and, despite terrible traffic on the return trip and a diversion into some very minor country lanes in Somerset, returned an average of just over 30 mpg for the 1000 miles or so that we drove in it. I spent today cleaning the interior of the car, hoovering up the sand from numerous beaches, cleaning/conditioning the leather and detailing the wood and other surfaces. I am so impressed with the quality of the materials used in the car. Just stunning. I keep finding new bits to enjoy too (like the bit of fabric curled over to stop stuff dropping in-between the inside edge of the driver/front passenger seat and the central console!). Anyway, onto the point of the post. Can anyone recommend a good supplier for some rubber mats for the LS600h. Ideally looking to spend a bit more and get a decent set first time that will last, and tailored rather than generic. Hopefully something that doesn't reek of rubber too much either! Any thoughts?
  13. I need a holiday from our two dogs so they are off to kennels! Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  14. Loving it. Off to Cornwall tomorrow for a week and actually looking forward to the drive! It is very quiet and refined and similar, if not better, in comfort I would say to the LS400. But I've driven a noisy car for a while in-between so it is hard to recall precisely. Engine is so quiet. And hardly any road noise or other traffic noise. Fantastic!

  15. Yep, I wonder if it would trigger an international rescue effort from Japan? Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
