  1. I'd it truly a competitor though? Purely based upon performance?
  2. Really?? I've would of thought that the E63 would be noticeably quicker. As an M5 competitor the car is designed to compete in the next class up. Admittedly cost will reflect this Marcus
  3. That's a beast, certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at an E63. Completely different league to my ISF!
  4. Post your Pics

    How did the ISF get on in some newer company? I'm hoping that all the cars perform similarly on the straights and in the twists. If anything, having driven the new M3 I could expect you were all trying to keep up!!lol Marcus
  5. The RCF is getting a little common around here now, perhaps you should stick with the ISF. Better long term investment!!ha
  6. Would you consider coming back to Lexus in that case??
  7. F friends

    Webuyanycar has just offered me £12k which is less than I'd accept for trade in at any Lexus dealership, particularly if they are offering £2.5k less. Car has 75k and full service history
  8. That we're over styled and heavy looking????
  9. F friends

    Your far too honourable for me!! Money talks, especially if it's going to help with getting a new car. Lol Marcus

    I can't imagine it would make a massive difference. Particularly cold mornings here would of anything cause more issues than in the US. The other cause of all this could be vibrations but then id expect to see issues over here too, not just isolated to the US. We may have issues in the UK but as the number of cars in the UK is so low, it might not be quite so apparent. Until someone in here confirms they have had this fault then we are just speculating. I may be worrying people over nothing!!lol Marcus

    I think it will be the repeat cycling of temperatures at the weak point that will be causing stress fracturing and cracking. It's the same flange that goes every time, would be interesting to monitor EGTs on each primary to see if there is a trend. Traditionally, stainless (304/316) is quite fragile when suddenly cooled or heated. In a nuclear reactor we would warm up from 15c to 300ish over the period of 4hrs to ensure no embrittlment would occur. I hope the new stainless manifolds will last in the long run also
  12. Still undecided but to be honest, although I love the Mesa red, many don't!
  13. Cracked Manifold

    I agree, if I need to change mine I'll be getting aftermarket.
  14. Cracked Manifold

    Yea, cars under warranty are getting them replaced. I just thought I'd ask as I hadn't heard of it being an issue but seems to be over in the US. Slight ticking on startup that goes away once warmed up could be something that happens to lots of people but they just don't notice
