    The First Lexus EV

    that is brilliant news !
  2. BMW. got one, waiting for another one next month. Best value overall outside Lexus
  3. please make sure that he is not stalling just to get past the 30 days

    IS300h Speedo Accuracy.

    lexus speedos are about 10% optimistic ( which explains some youtube videos with some really fast IS250's ) From personal experience, for better or worse BMW ones are much more accurate
  5. https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/consumer-rights-refunds-exchange/ if you are within 30 days, get your money back I expect that you bought it from a dealer as you are inquiring about the identity of the previous owner
  6. give it back, take your money back, do not take no for an answer

    What Makes a Premium Car these days?

    Isn't the GS300h 4cylinder engined?

    What Makes a Premium Car these days?

    premium car : Branding Internal quality perceived feeling ( leather/soft cabin feeling/overall layeout) Road noise, cricks and other noise Suspension, smoothness, cornering Specification ( no, not every satnav is the same, nor every cruise control or HUD or even screen quality) Avoiding using AA every other day helps to keep the premiumness
  9. If we are talking about new cars, the M4 is a no-brainer. Much cheaper to buy on a PCP, free services, three years unlimited miles warranty then on the 35th month, you give it back to the BMW finance and look for the next model and so on and so forth
  10. So no tax for Japanese cars for the EU Is there any small window of opportunity to get a tax free Lexus or the EU - Japan deal will be ratified after brexit?
  11. ouch, you have just probably cancelled my RX order
  12. although I am sure it is a great car, the price is not that much of a bargain when will reach 4 ( not five) years of age a 7 series BMW at the same more or less list price RRP when new ( £95.5K) will have guaranteed retained value as far as BMW is concerned about £14K Obviously at 5 years price would have been even less ( yes I know that Lexus is a vastly better build car, just saying for reference)
  13. the more I think about it the more obvious it gets. So Avensis production for the whole of Europe will stop in the first quarter of 2019 without any other UK built model replacing it. And that was announced three days ago, the same day as the Airbus announcement
  14. yes, which explains why it makes sense to just stop the Avensis altogether Interesting "coincidence" that as it says here: https://www.automobilemag.com/news/2019-toyota-camry-hybrid-launched-europe/ Camry will replace Avensis throughout Europe in the first quarter of 2019 . makes one wonder
  15. thanks, but isn't Toyota already building the Auris in the UK? Don't know, we'll see I guess
