  1. Yes £5 to park, i don't think it was an event day either. It was very busy though.
  2. Briefly met Twellsie above at Caffeine and Machine yesterday. Aston alloys looked great 😎
  3. Not far for me, would deffo be interested.
  4. Maybe bronze? bronze on white does look nice and would be a bit different from the norm. Tbh im not a massive fan of black wheels as you lose the definition of what the wheels look like. They do look good if you go full black on black though.
  5. Didn't think I could make this but weekend plans have been canceled so I can join in for the Saturday run 😀 1. Yes 2. 1 car mine 3. Just 1 me 4. No dietary requirements 
  6. Congrats on the purchase! Recently spotted this on the US forums, From what i can gather its a 330k+ miles ISF still going strong, aside from the routine consumables and known issues being addressed it sounds like its all orginal, amazing build quality!:- https://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-f-2008-2014/863212-isf-with-333-000-miles-6.html
  7. Looks like I can make it to this one 😂
  8. Congrats on the purchase, I had a quick nose around it while it was at Coventry Lexus, looked fab! Sounds like you had very similar reasoning for buying as I had, you won't regret it, it's a very special car. I've had 33mpg out of mine a few times on my mainly motorway commute, it's surprisingly frugal if you don't get caught in stop/start traffic.
  9. I'm in Coventry and happy to assist, I'm pretty sure I can make the meet in July also so could help then.
  10. I got a similar crap deal when I switched over my policy from my modified MX5 to the ISF, only 5 months left on my policy and they wanted £450 (Footman James) extra which was hard to swallow. Come renewal time they wanted £1200. They couldn't improve it at all when I asked them to get closer to the £520 More Than quote i ended up going with.
  11. Unless your really ham fisted and break connectors there's not really a great deal that can go wrong. Hardest part is getting your head and hands in positions to get to the throttle pedal connector.
  12. It is really simple to fit, I'd happily do it for you if your local, use this guide by Peter P18 Link and you won't have any problems. To summarize: Pop off the side panel on the dash (I used a blunt kitchen knife) Pop out the switch blank, there's a little clip on the top and it just pops straight out. Get in the foot well and undo 2 or 3 screws holding the panel with the odb port on it, and carefully move it to the side (I didn't disconnect any cables) At the top of the throttle peddle the is a connector, un-clip it, the clip faces towards the door. Fit the Apexi switch, drop the switch wire down through the hole into the footwell, connect the ISF specific harness to the throttle pedal connector and the switch into the Apexi box. Now you will notice a red dot on one side of the Apexi harness connector which needs to connect to the connector which was on the throttle, connect it with the red dot on the same side as the clip. Fit the Apexi switch into the blank hole, use a bit of double sided tape to hold the switch in place. Now press the start button twice (no foot on pedal). Car won't start put dash will power up. Now do the setup process as guide says above. Now put everything back together and use a couple of the supplied cable ties to secure the Apexi cables and box out of the way.
