  1. Thanks , 6 months would be fine . Fingers crossed for after Brexit
  2. Yes , but what is the right restriction of time allowed in Eu ? Some insurers have fixed number of days , 45 etc . Saga Is unlimited.
  3. Does LV do European cover with out a limit on number of days there ??? I would be interested
  4. We have car insurance with Saga , purely because they cover the car in Europe with no limitations, all the other insurance companies restricted you to 45 days etc .
  5. Expecting it to Be Left here for at least 3 / 4 months . Meant to be back in July , hopefully 🤞
  6. Hotels all shut , no where to eat . Brittany ferries stopped all crossing FRANCE to UK some time ago , now they have stopped Spain yo UK , I would guess thousands have been affected .
  7. Thanks for all the advice everyone. It will now be left in underground car park . We cannot drive to our friends house to leave on driveway, will be stopped by police and a fine . It’s basically Marshal Law now . Will leave the foot brake OFF and alarm ON as advised . A friend will check on it every week or so . It’s an absolute nightmare here , especially as can’t even take a taxi to airport with 2 in car , one person per Taxi !!!!!!. . Will try to walk to station and get train to airport .
  8. I lost a BMW key fob 20 years ago , it cost more than £200 to replace it then ! . Someone told me other day a replacement key fob was over £500 for a car , cannot remember what make it was .
  9. Currently stuck in Spain, but now getting flight back on Sunday ( hopefully) after ferry crossing cancelled for next month . Will Leave Lexus Parked outside on a drive way . Anything I should do ? Foot brake on or off ? . What about the alarm ? Any suggestions would be welcome .
  10. I have posted several times on this topic . A have the soft cream leather seats in a IS300h . Within weeks of ownership we had several scuffs on the front seats, mainly where you get in and out .. Never had this problem before with leather seats in other cars , previous car was Jaguar XF with light gray leather seats . After a year , and after seeing other examples on this forum i complained to Dealer And had front seat replaced under the warranty. Prior to that I had repair Done to passenger seat , by Dealer at my own cost . Lexus have a major problem with their leather not seats , they are not durable not practical. Will be very wary next time .
  11. £300 for a new battery ? I hope not . The battery on our old Micra runaround packed up last week , Halfords & Kwikfit both quoted over £100 , a neighbour recommended a local battery specialist shop , done for £68 .
  12. I was under the impression Lexus were not going to do another IS model ? What about the UX ? Or the ES ?
  13. Gone are the days of reliable german cars . I had several BMWs And the last one was was a disaster . Years ago german cars were reliable because they were so basic , no gadgets to go wrong , now that Merc s and BMWs now have lots of electronic goodies they Now suffer lots of issues . AVOID!
  14. Visit once for service , another time for MOT , often have to go back for Hybrid check . Always 3 times a year , and this year because I had new tyres fitted which were problematic I had to go back another 3 times . If I’m going to be doing all this at the Toyota garage I might as well buy a cheaper Toyota car AND get 5 years warranty!!
  15. I was told as a Lexus customer I would be able to use the Toyota dealership for servicing etc . Annoying thing about this is , costs for servicing A Lexus or Toyota are different, but done in the same place , maybe by the same people ? . Might be looking for new car next year , so Now expected to drive over an hour to Maidstone. I really think they could continue with what they have in Canterbury, find it hard to believe they have “ outgrown the premises “ .
