  1. I came from Honda’s (Crx, DC2 integra, ep3 civic) and can absolutely say my IS250 was the best all round car I’ve ever owned.
  2. Yes, problem was solved. I was in a rush so didn’t really ask for a full explanation on what pipe was disconnected. I had a quick look around before I took it in and the MAF sensor was plugged in correctly and main air box hose thing with jubilee clip was also connected.
  3. I took my drivers side headlight bulb to be changed at Halfords. Managed to knock off a pipe connected to the air filter and had EML light, traction light and reduced power shortly after.

  5. Mine is up for sale on there currently. I’m in Warrington. Grey SE-I 100k. Really good car, 2009 58 plate
  6. is200 newbie and Rebecca. Where have they gone? Anymore for anymore? That moody fella who got the big merc and then went to Subaru when it all went wrong!
  7. If I could afford to keep the 250 I’d have no probs going back to her after 12 months. Value wise, there just can’t be a better all round car about. Have to say I’ve really enjoyed my time with Lexus and hopefully there’ll be more to come!
  8. Not sure what happened, the sales woman at the dealership, while discussing gap insurance, told me she’d sold 22 velars to JLR employees and that one had been written off already. Must admit the jacking/vandalism thing does worry me. I live in a leafy part of Warrington but my girlfriend lives in Dovecot and has a flimsy front door 😬 After 2 1/2 years of the IS250 the plan is to look at a used IS300h but from what I’ve read on this forum, they’re not that well regarded.
  9. Fair wear and tear is acceptable so very minor scratches and no kerbing alloys! Apparently someone from work has already had his written off within a couple of weeks. Not good
  10. I work for JLR and a few months back we were offered a Range Rover D180 HSE R Dynamic on a 12 month lease for £268 a month, no deposit. It’s a 62k car and I’ve never had a brand new motor so thought, why not? Took delivery of mine on Friday evening and it’s an absolutely stunning car to look at, a real head turner. I’ve had people stop and watch me park etc etc. Cars got every option you could think of. Two touch screens, WiFi, massage seats, remote function so you can heat her up before you get in. The options go on and on and on and on. An absolutely beautiful car but the ride and engine, performance and refinement... hand on heart is better in my IS250. I know comparing petrol to Diesel is a little unfair but 62k to the 5k I paid a couple of years ago and the 100k miles on the engine.... testament to the quality of the Lexus brand and/or this model Feel like I’ve traded my perfect woman for a bit of skirt I know I’ll never own a better value car than my IS.
  11. You’re welcome. Its the best all round car I’ve driven and this is a great forum so Im happy to help out.
  12. I have a 2009 (58 plate), facelift in dark grey/black leather. It’s on 96k and has full history, all but two at Lexus. I’m in Warrington if you want a test drive. I will be selling within the next three months but you’re welcome to come and take it for a drive regardless. I’m in Warrington, I remember seeing a post saying you were going to look at one there so I’m guessing you’re reasonably local. Give me a shout if you’re interested.
  13. Dang! Such a shame as you seem to have put an awful lot of hard work into that car. Hope it works well for you whatever the outcome.
