  1. I almost certainly will Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Congrats on the new car. Its interesting they've improved the electric drive element to the car - didn't know they'd changed the 300h drive train at all.
  3. SUV's tend to be rip off. Look what a UX and NX costs. The ES is a far nicer car than either. I am going to certainly try one out.

    Fuel economy

    50Litres... That's small. Still it's a good 20mpg on my GS250 so touring range is probably 400 miles.
  5. I’m struggling too. The LS seems the logical upgrade in 500h form in the new shape or 460 form in the prior shape. I looked an the IS300h - nice looking little saloon but fear it’ll A) be a bit small inside B) won’t be as comfortable on long journeys. The plus is my money will get a much newer example and it’ll be peanuts to run it. Finding a GS450h is another option (I drive a 250) and I don’t want a GS300h - it’ll be slower than my GS250 - so will an IS300h but not as slow as a GS300h. I wonder if the new IS, when it comes, will be a rear driver again or move to the transverse platform the ES and Camry are spun off - or it might disappear altogether Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. A nice evening in Spain I spent a wonderful evening in the Canyon Anisclo at the end of September. Here's a few from the shoot. I had settled on this composition to hide a rather ugly bird hide deeper to the right and to frame the view North through the Canyon _DSC3658 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr _DSC3682 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr Out of the corner of my eye I could see the sunlight also hit the peak of Pena Montanesa (facing due east) so I set up a second tripod to frame this shot and so I could keep the tripod in the position of the former two. _DSC3687 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr The light got better and better _DSC3702 (1) by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr And after it faded I returned to my other tripod and grabbed this _DSC3712 by Stephen Taylor, on Flickr
  11. Was it glasgow you got the car. I think I recognise the dealership. You’ll love the car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Not for me. I couldn’t care less. A charger is good as is Bluetooth and navigation fine. Music etc dies nothing for me so I don’t feel the need for fancy infotainment Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Sounds like the Camry might be “the one” over the ES. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. So the IS isn’t moving to a transverse Mount platform. That’s good news. The not so good news is other than the 300h from the current one, the 5.0 v8 and the V6 turbo (bet that’s a peach) there isn’t a huge range of engines to choose from. They could well use chocolate bmw engines Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. If you want to see German car butt hurt go onto Pistonheads and see the fanbois get irate whenever the quality of a Lexus IS promoted. To be fair all my Lexus has had from my immediate family and friends is love and admiration. They were particularly shocked to discover it was more comfortable than the previous Mercedes and admitted it was “nicer” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
