  1. Grrr, no test drive now til Boris gives the thumbs up so likely to be Dec 3rd. Is there a level of impatience above waiting for a new car? At least I've got a bit of time to tart up the is250 so the next owner sees his/her new Lexus in the best light 🙂
  2. Hi Mikey Thanks, seen both of those and made an enquiry about the one in Leicester. Could meet them half way so we'll see how it goes...
  3. Nice car, thanks for the details but the Mesa Red is a deal breaker. Turns out I can't have a test drive until after Lockdown II so still have (enforced) time to keep looking. Regards Mike
  4. Impatience has got the better of me! Struggling to find the colour and trim at the right price point in a RX 450h so sticking with the is range and test driving a 300h on Thursday. Not viewing it as 2nd best as I was on a knife edge between the 2 but I can get the colour, trim, mileage and price and still be in a high quality Lexus. Very much appreciate all the help and advice 👊
  5. The time has come to say goodbye to my ultra reliable is250 and say hello to a 2017 (facelift) 300h Premier. Test drive is Thursday morning, Lexus main dealer, what do I need to look out for guys? Any specific questions I should ask before the haggling starts? Mike
  6. Hi Razor Mine is a 56 plate, January 2007 SE L. No satnav or reversing camera, no ML audio but just about every other extra including rear window blind, hated wiper blade screen zone etc. Mine has 162,000 miles on the clock, runs like a dream, is ultra reliable but only has a private sale value of GBP 2k. I'm in a similar position to you but looking for an RX 450h. Hope this helps.
  7. Thanks so much for your help and comments so far guys. Management has chosen the colour so I can't move on that but it seems I may have to up the budget a bit. I had no idea that the Mesa Red colour had been skipped for one generation, thanks for that info too. The search goes on..
  8. Hi all The time has come to sell my ageing but still reliable is250 and buy my first hybrid. All research done, I'm now in the market for an RX 450h in Mesa Red with a cream/ivory interior. Budget around GBP 20k. If you come across anything like this, I'd be grateful if you would message me. Many thanks Mike
  9. Can anyone please tell me where this part is from on my is250? Found it in the glove compartment, wife denying all knowledge but it wasn't there last time I looked!
  10. Hi folks Is Mesa Red now discontinued as a colour for the is 300h and if so, what is the latest registration to be available in this colour? Promised my wife a used one but not yet looking at anything over 3 years old.

  12. Quick update. Both rear tyres had a few hundred miles left in them but I decided to change them now rather than risk forgetting later. Fitted Bridgestones as that is what my Lexus dealer put on the front last year. Problem has now disappeared. I would like to have had a close look at the old tyres but my wife took it to the tyre fitters so missed the chance. Thanks for replies 👍👍
  13. Hi all Driving along a new stretch of super smooth motorway the other day at low speed due to traffic. The car was rolling as if one or more wheels was oval, very bouncy and very un Lexuslike. Jacked each wheel in turn and checked wheel bearings and for running true, checked tyre pressures and wheel nuts but at a loss. Any ideas from you gurus? Regards Mike
