  1. I guess it’s cos the Lexus warranty is quite a bargain compared to what you’d have to spend on an M3 or C63, and that’s why a high percentage of ISF’s have a warranty...but at the same time, you guys already talk about how amazingly reliable they are, would you be happy to run without a warranty?
  2. I don't think any one would argue with that Craig...I guess it depends how big the price gap is though! Ignoring Ollie's car [in my list of ISF's on AT at the moment], as he's only just put it up for sale, the other two have been for sale for quite some time...the black one looks to be a good example [low miles, low number of owners, not sure about the SH, still in warranty I believe]. Is price the main reason it hasn't sold?
  3. Your opinion mirrors mine mate, though I think I'm bias as I want an ISF and have a maximum I'd spend on an early car. I base this on the figure I nearly bought an 08 car for 2 years ago [that had FSH, owned by a club member, under 50k miles etc]. Obviously I wouldn't expect to have to spend more on a similar car now. I know ISF's are rare but they still depreciate like all other cars [especially cars with V8's]!
  4. Seems to be a few ISF's on AutoTrader at the mo [that aren't super late ones, with super low miles and super big bucks]! Anyone know anything about these ones? I think a few of them have been up for sale for quite a while. I wonder why they haven't sold? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202001226439811?sort=price-desc&radius=1500&advertising-location=at_cars&make=LEXUS&model=IS%20F&postcode=cv77nh&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&page=1 https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202001286665207?sort=price-desc&radius=1500&advertising-location=at_cars&make=LEXUS&model=IS%20F&postcode=cv77nh&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&page=1 https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202002026867110?sort=price-desc&radius=1500&advertising-location=at_cars&make=LEXUS&model=IS%20F&postcode=cv77nh&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&page=1
  5. Is that true though, that you must have your car serviced by Lexus if you take their warranty? At the end of the day, if I was in the market for a used F car (which I might be when I finally get round to putting my Forester up for sale) and an owner pulled out a fat file of invoices for all the service/repair work carried out by a good indy, I’d be pretty confident the car had been looked after...more so than someone who just hands me a service book with Lexus stamps.
  6. I remember saying this when I was looking for an ISF last year but it’s a pity so so many get part exchanged back to dealers without at least trying the private market. I totally understand why you guys do it, it’s so much less hassle, but when it takes what would be a well loved ISF out of my price range (due to a dealers mark-up), it is gutting!
  7. Does Big Rat not frequent the forum any more? Sent him a PM not no reply [just had a question about a particular ISF and I know he's the man to speak to]. Ta.
  8. Interesting. I wonder if that’s why it’s a few grand cheaper then the white one I highlighted at the start of this thread, even though it’s got similar miles?
  9. £800 for a speaker and £2k for a DVD changer...WTF?!?
  10. Would you not be confident enough not to bother with a warranty and just put some money away for a rainy day? Everyone on here says how reliable they are and although stuff can of course go wrong, I wonder what the average per-year spend on repair work for an ISF is with owners on here?
  11. It's a bit messed-up that Lexus would sell a car with this issue - very un-Lexus no?
  12. I think the red ISF I mentioned in my original post has gained it missed exhaust trim 😀
  13. You're also West Midlands base! I've only ever seen one other Foz on the road...I wonder if it was you?!
