  1. Has anyone else read this article in this month's Evo and know if it can be done on a ISF?
  2. Got bumped..

    I only got her mobile number and registration. I'll just go ahead and get the repair done. Thanks for the advice Dave.
  3. Got bumped..

    My insurance company has just emailed me and said because I can't provide the third party's name I will have to pay the excess charge!.. What are my options if she refuses to reply to my messages or answer my calls?
  4. Got bumped..

    Thanks for all the good advice guys. Update: I've reported the incident to my insurer on Sat. and they tried to call the Audi driver to get her full name but she's not answering calls. I've also msg her and she's not responding... I'm just going to let my insurer deal with it now and book the car into one of their approved bodyshops or a Lexus approved one.
  5. Got bumped..

    Thanks for the reply guys! Do I need to contact my insurance company before I take it anywhere to get it checked over/repaired? Sorry, I've never made a claim before so not sure what the procedure is:)
  6. I was waiting at the lights on my way to work this morning and a lady in a Audi went into the back of me. It was only a minor bump but has left scratches and some hairline cracks on my bumper.. We exchange details and took photos. This is the 2nd time it has happened in the past 6 months but the first time there was no damage. Has anyone got any advice about how to proceed with this because I have a 400 excess on my policy?
  7. Airbag recall

    I didn't know the battery disconnect would reset the trip computer so that would explain the drop to 11mpg.. But the very noticeable drop in the fuel gauge is likely to be a "extended test drive". I will definitely take a photo of the mileage next time I drop the car off for any work and avoid leaving the car with them overnight if possible. Anyway, a guy from Lexus customer service called me today asking if I was satisfied with the service and if I had any feedback. I raised this issue and he said he'll look into it and contact the service manager..
  8. Airbag recall

    I Had to take my car back again yesterday(Lexus Stockport) to resolve a rattle from behind the dash that appeared ever since I had the airbag recall done. I forgot to note the mileage when I left me car.. but when I collected her today I noticed the petrol gauge had dropped quite a bit.. So I checked the trip computer and the average mpg had gone from 25mpg to 11mpg!
  9. Gsf on Pistonheads

    @FlytvrI think you are right! But I'm undecided about the Silver on a RCF because they don't photograph well so was wondering if they look better in person? Also the carbon works well with white but not sure about silver...
  10. Gsf on Pistonheads

    @Flytvr did you look at the silver RCF carbon at Stoke when you bought your white one? They've just reduced the price by £3k on the Lexus website!..hmm
  11. 16 Months: Spent £59 to change 1 Xenon bulb at the dealer to pass MOT. Under warranty, the sat nav was replaced/repaired. Very expensive apparently..
  12. Cheap IS-F

    Linus, pay an extra 1K and get the silver one on AT.
  13. Airbag recall

    Did you bother asking the dealer how much you would get for a trade in or are you not looking to get another Lexus? I was curious how much webuyanycar would offer for mine and surprisingly it was higher than I expected!
  14. Yes, there was one in that colour for sale a few months ago. I was very tempted but I was too late..
  15. That's my favourite colour for the RCF. Don't like those wheels though...
