  1. Great story and what a testament to these amazing cars. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  2. If the touch screen needs replacing that would be your budget gone too I think. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  3. Parking is an absolute breeze. Sensors everywhere and a rear camera. It will even park itself apparently but I've never tried that. As for supermakets etc, I just tend to park in a quiet bit and walk a bit further. Just trying to avoid those accidental dents. I couldn't follow the link but I'm hoping it led to another great Lexus?
  4. I've done this recently. In the past I've had two LS400s. Both lovely and bought for less than £1k each. Drove both for around 3 years with must normal servicing and the odd extra bill. The first one was LPG and sadly the VVTI unit when bang travelling along a local bypass. I put it down to poor servicing prior to my ownership. The second car I ending up selling for a small profit. I really enjoyed both the LS400 but the family didn't like them much. They were a bit too dated in style (they have no taste!). I loved the history behind the car and researched that quite a bit at the time. I'm not a mechanic and I've not got any particular interest in learning how to do anything more complex than changing oil, etc. So, my view is that it would probably be good to have more skill than me to keep these things going on the road as they get older. It could be an expensive game to be in if you are paying independent mechanics fees for jobs on these cars on a more regular basis. Anyway, move forward to last year (and following two years in a lovely Honda Accord 3.0 Coupe), I bought my current car - a 2008 LS600 from Lexus Stoke. Just over 100k and they included a full three year warranty in the sale. I've now done just over 15k in the car. Immaculate service history, all Lexus, from day one. It will continue to be that way. I've put a private plate on it and it is often mistaken for a new car by those who know nothing about these things :) I love this car. The family love it too. It is so quiet, refined, luxurious and has enough bells and whistles to keep everyone engaged. The quality of the workmanship throughout is astonishingly good. I have the 'poverty' spec by choice (no reclining rear seats) but I can put a digital piano on the back seat when needed for work. It is super quiet on the motorway, loads of power, and is a fabulous place to be. I regularly get just over 30mpg which isn't bad for such a big car imho. I look at the newer LS range and I like the dynamic styling etc. But I also really love the look of my car too. I can honestly say that there is another car that I'd rather own at the moment that this LS600. Whilst I genuinely loved both of my LS400 and was really sad to see them go, given the choice I'd go for the LS600 every day of the week. It is an amazing bit of engineering in every respect. The only issue is what on earth am I going to replace this amazing car with around the summer of 2021?
  5. I wouldn't rule out an older one. I got mine with just 100k from the Lexus dealer network. It was like new and still drives as such (just done 115k). Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  6. Great news! Another year of happy motoring ahead. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  7. Sincere apologies! Not wanting to appear snobbish at all. But I don't think that we are comparing like with like here. From what I've heard from friends, new jags are not everything they are cracked up to be either. Good luck with your new car.
  8. Great to get such a detailed response! Brilliant indeed. As for the LS600h, no accident damage at all, nothing in the history (all Lexus about anything like that) and colour variation must have been in the photo as in the flesh it is immaculate. Good luck with the sale of your car which does look superb.
  9. Sounds a bit toppy to me. I paid a little more than that for a 2008 LS600h from a Lexus main dealer and that included a 3 year complete main dealer warranty. It did have 100k miles but it drives and looks like a new car [emoji3]. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  10. Quite right. Ford Modeo v. Lexus LS? Only one winner in that contest and the overwhelming evidence of this forum confirms that.
  11. Yes, £9k is well over the market price and, as others have said, it has been unsold for over a year.
  12. Sounds ideal, depending on the price of course. Do let us know what transpires. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  13. Come and have a ride in my LS600h. I'll give you all of 30sec to make up your mind. It's a-ma-zing! Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
  14. The XC60 we had was truly awful. Never again. Although the new XC90 is meant to be nice. Would prefer a new RX though. Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk
