  1. I spent a good 6 months watching the RCF market. My intention was to purchase one approx. 12 months from my initial search, but 6 months later I had one on the drive 👍
  2. Finally made a decision and decided to go down the dealership route after negotiating a good discount on an immediate service and service plan 👍
  3. Looking forward to less dust and getting them bedded in asap.
  4. I'm having my front pads replaced tomorrow, came up on the MOT as an advisory and was told by the tester the sensor is very close to being triggered. Gone with EBC redstuff pads after having them on a previous car and looking forward to reduce brake squeal 👍
  5. I'm looking to purchase one as a Christmas present to myself 👍
  6. I have my eye on this one: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32961556574.html?pid=808_0000_0101&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32961556574&aff_trace_key=&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=3344amp-KqVFN1JPJFBOtjmqU9gbfg1570389904826 I already have my local car audio installer on standby if/when I purchase it. I believe it's pretty much plug and play with only minor modification required.
  7. Have you got a link? I'm going to purchase one in a few weeks but I can only find IS specific models.
  8. Have you tried this site: https://m.buycarparts.co.uk/lexus/rc-gsc1-usc1/107866/10132/brake-disc?brand[0]=65 A member previously linked the website and I saved it for future reference 👍
  9. Yep East Cheshire and it will be an 80 mile round trip if I decide to use them.
  10. Lex-Tek Autos in Sheffield, I have spoken to them a couple of times and they came across well. I'm Still 50/50 whether to go down dealership servicing route or use them. Interested to hear your thoughts if you take a look at them.
  11. That I'm glad they took ownership of the issue and agreed to compensation. I've just received confirmation my refurb payment has been processed and will be in my bank by the end of the week. Fair play to the supplier they have looked after me and I would use them again, however I be will keeping a very keen eye on the next tyre fitter!
  12. I did just that, comparison below: 50k service £375 with Lexus, specialist £240. 60k service £875 with Lexus, specialist £600. 32% saving on average isn't huge, I think I may go with Lexus this time and then revisit the question next year.
  13. Thanks for all the input, I was 50/50 yesterday before asking the question. By 5pm I was in the no brainer Lexus service camp, now I'm back being 50/50 🤣🤣🤣 I plan on having the car for 7+ years as I do like to hold onto my cars and when I come to sell it I expect the car to be 10+ years old. I've owned nothing but Lexus cars for the past 18 years and in all that the time the only thing I've had fail on me (excluding consumables) are ball joints on my first Lexus (IS200). I appreciate previous non F ownership may not be that relevant, but to me I have confidence in the brand and how reliable they are.
