  1. Dan, if a second opinion is what your after I canโ€™t recommend Westfield Motors in Rawreth enough, both Ian and Chris are ex Toyota/Lexus mechanics and are absolutely brilliant, half the price of Lexus too ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  2. Nearly five years with mine, still look back when walking away ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป........is that my front lip spoiler? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.......looking good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  3. Couple of photos of my old mini ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  4. Personally I wouldnโ€™t know.......BUT Iโ€™m led to believe the ISF manifolds were a weak point in manufacturing, again Iโ€™m absolutely NO expert BUT as far as Iโ€™m aware Lexus corrected this weakness on the GSF manifolds, both have the same stud pattern layout and use the same gaskets, the increase in BHP is manifold configuration to a degree, Iโ€™ve a set of GSF manifolds that will be getting fitted to my ISF at some point due to a small crack in the ISF ones, not sure any power increase will be noticed as the car isnโ€™t tracked or driven in track ways barring the odd burst where time, location and road layout allows.
  5. Not me, first Iโ€™ve seen of it.......Personally Iโ€™d be reluctant as I know Iโ€™d be signing my life away for an LC-500 ๐Ÿ˜‚........Iโ€™ve a repulse purchase problem ๐Ÿ˜”
  6. Iโ€™ve friend who has both the ISF and GSF, โ€œheโ€ says the ISF is better balanced than the GSF, GSF is a better car day to day but ISF is more a car for the track. Heโ€™s also Japanese and returns home regularly and visits fugi raceway........me ๐Ÿค”.......I can only dream of that car combo and opportunity ๐Ÿ˜‚........
  7. I had a MK1-MR2 as mid life crisis when 40, had it for 6yrs, now 47 Iโ€™ve the ISF, a Volvo C70 convertible (which I love ๐Ÿ˜‚) and a Kawasaki Z1000-sx Mgf ABS, my 21yr old son has a ep3 type-R which I have use of too.......MR2 although not fast was a great car in every way. Was sorry to let it go but the insignificant other was busting my fellas about them all. ๐Ÿ™„......oh n Iโ€™ve still got my 69-mini ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  8. @FTBBCVoodoo.....strange as the mot app I looked at shows only one fail (wiper blade) and advisories on tyres......would be interesting to know the end result and hopefully the buyer will join and fill in the blanks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  9. 61k could indicate the 60k service not carried out, can be prone to rear sparks cracked as Iโ€™ve read on more than one occasion this to happen despite FLSH ๐Ÿค”......room for thought ๐Ÿ˜‚......would need someone to know what theyโ€™re looking at but misfire could be something this simple (although expensive in labour terms).......would be surprised if it was major as these are pretty much indestructible unless year on year of abuse. MOT history check would be worth looking into.
  10. I know it means absolutely nothing BUT u would of thought theyโ€™d have thought it through a little bit better ๐Ÿ˜‚.......clean bill of health for another year, thatโ€™s all that matters ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  11. Those โ€œDaciaโ€ test centres are another level ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.......definitely one to put at the back of the paperwork ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚......love it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  12. Red??.....lol, what happened to pink๐Ÿ˜‰......still the best colour n definitely the fastest ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.......howโ€™s things Dav?.......still got the merc?
  13. Iโ€™m the first to put my hands up and know nothing as far as track handling goes, I did watch Nurburgring ISF and they were really impressed and stated it was far better than the M5 and cheaper per lap (retired now I think)........the F logo is the Fugi racetrack configuration from above where the Fโ€™s were heavily tested during build/handling. Like I say as for real life track driving I wouldnโ€™t a clue and wonโ€™t be trying either ๐Ÿ˜‰........mine may well make the top 67 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚....๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  14. Definitely not 67 red ones ๐Ÿ˜‚......only ever 17 red ones sold from 2008-2013 in the uk, think the rat compiled a list and I think he traced 7 red ones to be left out of the 17 sold. Think the values will go north but a time of 5yrs + will probably be the case.
  15. 64k on 58 plate, the highest mileage one Iโ€™ve heard of is in the states, was at 314k and still going strong......just the usual wear n tear items like us all.
