  1. I can second Bamford Rose, Mike is a decent chap, in fact if I recall correctly he owned an rx400h, the only thing reliable on site!
  2. £795 for a 2 year warranty Lexus ISF no excess, unlimited mileage, RAC (in other cars & for partner), MOT cover - a single claim on the Mark Levinson subwoofer costs the equivelent. £1500 for a 1 year warranty (£3000 2 year) Audi a4 s line warranty on 2017 model £2400 for a 1 year warranty (£4800 2 year) Aston Martin Vantage 5-10 years old £3000 for a 1 year warranty (£6000 2 year) BMW M4 £3700 for a 1 year warranty (£7200 2 year) Mclaren 570s People can make what they will from the above. I personally have claimed on several Lexus warranties, GS300, RX450, IS250, ISF, GSF, I don't think that there is a Lexus that I have never had to claim on however, never had a claim refused. Audi, single claim on the manufacters, refused, a little legal jargon overturned the refusal and Aston warranty, well, more refusals than I have had hot dinners.
  3. Your understanding is correct plus 140k mileage limit. A warranty inspection is required.
  4. I can't say that I have ever had an apparant "issue" with any of the 3 F's that I have had. From what I recall with the ISF if I ever got over excited with the downshift and shifted in quick succession the car may only drop one gear as opposed to the elected two or two as opposed to the three. I never felt that the car was been unreasonable however, at the time I was driving XKR, Vantage and for a short stint, GTR and in comparison, in the downshift, those gearboxes were by far so much more responsive to rapid inputs. But as I said earlier, I never felt that the ISF was been unreasonable and for a road car with fair inputs all was quite acceptable. Maybe set up a go pro around the passenger headrest so that you can review the footage and see what is in fact going on. Do you come from a German / DSG background?
  5. They go to all that effort, for then the dipstick of a driver to reverse the 50 grand worth of motor straight into the front of that other car! With rear sensors and camera as standard, one really has to ask, what is this generation coming to!
  6. @Linas.PDemand vs stock. There is no stock, true but there is also no demand. This breakers prices only become good value when there is demand. @steve2006 breakers vs new. The price is not relative enough, as is displayed on the users ebay page. They have failed to move any GSF item from off their page. Used mats, just shy of £100 - they are not even GSF mats, just GS. £80 for brand new GSF from Lexus parts direct. The list goes on.
  7. Yes, your earlier message says that however, I cannot find the thread/post. You suggested that it was covered recently, maybe you could direct us to the thread/post.
  8. Both programmes qualify for full 12 month Lexus warranty and options for extended warranties too. "Lexus Premium used" comes under the criteria where the vehicle is, either, a minimum of 8 years and/or have done over 100,000 miles. Why Lexus do this, I don't have the answer.

  10. The diesel Renault engines are some of the best diesel engines out there. It is the Renault electrics where Nissan have their issues.
  11. "Is a service book necessary?" It depends what you define as necessary. Will the lack of a service book affect a warranty claim? Subject to associated paperwork, no. Could a future sale be affected if I don't have the book? Potentially, there are enough buyers out there who insist on seeing a "stamp" in a book. For the sake of a phone call to the salesman, I highly recommend. To a dealer, a service book missing is not uncommon so it is not unusal for a dealer to acquire a replacement service book, send off to the relevant dealerships and get the stamps in the book, it is a more than fair request and from my experience of these issues, never had a problem with getting dealers to do this.
