  1. Lol. I drove mine 1200 miles from Scotland to the Alps in 24hrs with just fuel and food stops then hiked around a lake to find some compositions for a shoot. Seat comfort is a big strength in these cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Gs250 is an amazing car. You’ll love it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Troller :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Andorra :) Lucky man. Just back from the Pyrenees. They’re just the best mountains in Europe if you ask me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Chain driven and £275 for a minor maybe £450/£500 for a big one. A Toyota dealer will do the same service with the same parts for two thirds of the cost So far I’ve serviced mine twice, once at Toyota for £250 and once at Lexus for £440 but more work was done at Lexus. The cars been cheaper to service than my old Mercedes and Volvo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Honestly - Toyota dealer might be a good bet. They can do all the work on a Lexus except warranty stuff. If your car isn’t in warranty a Toyota garage seems a good idea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What more is there to say, it was making a stupid noise - others like it make similar stupid noises - there’s a known fix in the US where many more people drive this make and model- it’s getting said known fix under warranty and if that doesn’t fix it then there will be more for sure to say.

  8. It still might continue to make sense ;) Loch Lomond won’t be how you remembered it - treckers/faux outdoor types/campervans/mobile homes littering the place. Nasty young young people camping and drinking beer/making mess. It’s not all good. Places that tend to be great to visit might not be great to live. You want to go more off the beaten track or to a less well known beauty spot - somewhere between Aberfeldy and Crieff/Comrie/Killin might also be nice and handy driving distance to the good stuff I love the Alps but I wouldn’t live there. Too busy, full of people etc. The Pyrenees-less well known, just as nice, far less touristy and I could see a good life for me there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Couldn’t do Italy. I hate the place. It’s total chaos. France or Spain though and I’m there Achiltibiue though. Now you’re talking [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Don’t. It’s awfully rainy and compared to the rest of Scotland remarkably unremarkable. I’m debating upping sticks to France or Spain to the Pyrenees. Skye would be nice but house prices are high there and the tourists season crazy. Go properly north and live in Assynt etc. Remote and quiet and unspoilt, if you’re really keen on the area somewhere like Aberfoyle, or towards Kinlochard will get you a better view for less money Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Aye. It’s over £500 so glad I’m not paying. The service etc I’ll pay for of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Update-Lexus Glasgow will be replacing the clock/spring housing - not the whole rack. The technical found the noise when manoeuvring the car. Feelings. Great service from the dealership in terms of communication and email/calls but in disappointed that a car as young as this (2013) from a maker that prides itself on reliability needs a steering component changed at 43k mainly gentle miles. I’ll be extending the warranty if I keep it another year. They recommended I change the tyres but the price wasn’t that competitive. It wasn’t a bad one but I can save a good 20% going with camskill and local fitter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m just back with my 250 GS from the Pyrenees. I go every year in my car. Biggest run back was from the Azay Le Rideau yesterday pm to get back to Scotland for lunch. Car did miss a beat and developed an odd intermittent squeaking noise and slight rattling/clicking noise when low speed manoeuvring. Didn’t go quite as far south this time inntgus car, my previous Merc and Volvo have been to Granada, Ronda and Seville plus Salamanca, Madrid and Toledo. Here’s my GS in the Spanish Pyrenees-can you guess where? Agree on the cooled seats Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It sounds a bumptious thing to say but in most people’s hands it would be. Previous owner averaged 33mpg, I average 39 in it and rountinely get mid 40s from it. Not recently mind, driving around the Pyrenees has seen my average plummet to 35 but the run back and not even 3 tanks of fuel to get back from the Dordogne to Argyll Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. SFTphotography.co.uk Check the blog I’ve booked it into the dealer - cannot be doing with this Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
