  1. Cheers everyone. Getting pads checked and replaced as necessary at independent and then small service with Lexus. All advice very welcome.
  2. Sorry folks. It’s 60k. Not 50k. My error.
  3. Cheers John. Very helpful. Thank you.
  4. Cheers John. Problem is previous owner didn’t do the 40k one so would prefer to get the big one done if I’m doing it. think you’re suggesting going locally for the brakes but Lexus for the service.
  5. So I’ve had the CT for around 3 months and love it. I totally agree that the experience of owning and driving far exceeds the ratings given from test drives. I now need brake pads and my SatNav etc updated. I see the big service with Lexus IS roughly £500 without the brake pads I know I need. I use an independent garage I really trust (Marshall Autocare) normally but don’t expect they can do the software update. can anyone give me some advice about what options I have in order to keep servicing costs to a minimum. Also wondered if there were any service plans I ought to consider by way of long term saving.
  6. Checking car history online. The car had the following work carried out early in its history FABRIC SUPAGARD - SU,S/FIT PRO PACK - FIT I know what the Fabric Supaguard is anyone know what the rest means
  7. You sound as sad as me! My challenge now is to try and keep using only the battery. The queue behind me hate me.
  8. Evening everyone. A few little niggles - not worth going into but being sorted which is the main thing. So far so good. Loving the ride and the engine. Need a little more time to make get used to the Eco / Sport options and the media / DAB radio takes a little getting used to but will just take some time but not a problem in the slightest.
  9. Cheers appreciate your info/advice. Bought the car. Think I got a good deal (at least I think I did - do you ever?) They are getting the hybrid battery checked through Lexus, two year Gold AA warranty with full recovery as part of warranty. Fully serviced before as well. Also alloys refurbed (gone for a Matt black as car is red and black and all paint work checked and protected. Will get the big Lexus service next time - we won’t be doing many miles so ought to tie in. Thanks again to everyone. Really pleased.
  10. Heading to purchase tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
  11. I’ve now heard back from the dealer selling the car. As I mentioned it is a 2015 car with 56 thousand mileage and it has a 2016 2017 2018 service with Lexus and is due its 2019 service now. I also spoke to Lexus and despite not being completed every 10k they have said that a battery check alone (£59) re validates the battery on an annual basis and you are back on track. Any thoughts!
  12. Unfortunately nothing in at present in my budget. Service record at the original one is sparse but dealer confirming actual record with Lexus direct. Only has first two records present through Lexus at present. Have to say Lexus themselves were very helpful.
  13. Off to Lexus Edinburgh to see what they can do for me.
