  1. IS-F v Tesla

    Two very different cars.......But if this was a p85d/p90d or p100d the Lexus would have got majorly walked.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Looks great, I personally prefer contrast between car and wheels so think that they really set the car off! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Advice!

    From what I've seen so far the isf has (in general) a higher turnover of owners than most performance cars I've owned and looked at. As long as ownership balances out, for me I personally find one owner per year excessive however as others have said will be going by overall condition, service history etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Advice!

    I've seen a total of 5 isfs now, when I initially started looking I was hoping for a silver/white ISF with around 60-80k on the clock. All of the isfs I've looked at have either been higher mileage examples or much lower....... I agree though nothing worse than finding an expensive/new/performance car with corners cut on basic maintenance and tyres [emoji107] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Looks like the Silver ISF which was on autotrader got picked up by a dealer with an instant 2k + price increase
  6. Advice!

    I do agree with the point you're making of not getting too hung up on mileage and as others have mentioned number of owners. Having been back to see the 09 100k one I'd also have to agree that the 08 one is not worth the 3k more....... I'm happy to wait but missed out on one a few weeks ago that was the perfect balance for me in terms of condition, price, mileage etc, with so many (in isf terms) within the whole spectrum of my price range for sale at the moment it seems like a good time to buy.
  7. Advice!

    I have indeed, just awaiting info [emoji106]
  8. Advice!

    Yes a little crazy given cash buyer and time of year.....not sure on the service history either as they didn't have it to hand. I've got a few other options available with owners on this forum which is nice so just weighing everything up prior to pulling the trigger. I've had my Skyline 350gt for 6+ yrs and at lucky enough to get a new "practical" Honda every 10 months through family so although I intend to keep the isf for a fair amount of time I do need to consider potential resale value [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Update on cars mentioned in this thread. Silver one with 43k has had 5 previous owners and dealer isn't willing to shift on price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Advice!

    Agree with both above comments, any gap in service history is alarm bells for me...... Walked away from a silver one with around 60k on the clock (my preferred mileage figure) as it had missed multiple service intervals..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Advice!

    Mark, thanks for the reply. I too am torn in my decision making but I'd be lying if I didn't say the mileage is an issue for me (for potential resale value only) I'm also keen on a full Lexus service history again solely from a resale point of view. I'm waiting to here back regarding both silver ones on AT as I type so we shall see, the grey one I fired across an email and call too but never heard anything back from....... I'm happy to wait and see what's about in the new year but I've never seen this many isfs available at once Cheers Sai Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Same issue with Skyline 350/v35 owners section on skyline owners, relatively rare and reliable cars so most stuff has been covered! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi All, So having seen a number of isf's from the good to the not so good it's nearing decision time. Option 1 - 09 ISF with flsh, 100k on the clock, 6 previous owners for around 15k Option 2 - 08 ISF with flsh, 78k on the clock, 2 previous owners for around 18k Both have no immediate need for the usual tyres and breaks and both are the same colour in comparable condition with Option 2 being slightly tidier all round (no bolster wear etc, minimum stone chips etc) I average around 8k miles a year The highest I can budget is around the 17-18k mark for outright purchase. Any advice much appreciated........
  14. Looks like its been sold/removed from sale :/
