  1. As it says it's been a while since on here but hopefully back and a lot has happened since I was last on here.. I have sold the IS200,after 10yrs and I must say I miss the old girl that I would swap what I have now for it back. I have a 2005 Volvo V70 D5, fully loaded with all the toys. Had it 2yrs now and its pretty good on fuel which is a good thing about it, but it does not do it for me ... was impressed with it when I got it and its now done 192K miles and drives like new, anyway not here to talk about the volvo. I want to talk about what I want next, I want a RX400h, wish I got this after the IS, but hey ho we live and learn.. so RX hydrid peeps tell me the all about yours, realabilty, performance etc.... what to look for when I buy one.. Oh forgot hello everyone,
  2. Happy Birthday whiteman!

  3. After 10Yrs Its Going To Go

    The one I am getting is a 2006 V70 D5, 200BHP.... every gadget you could think of in this car, will be sad to see the lexus go but got a good deal on one and got to have it, all this time I have struggled to get things to fit in the boot... I have decided space is also important now...tookme long enough to decide.. I may just put the Lexus in the garage and leave it in there for a few years....not bothered about getting rid....

  5. After 10Yrs Its Going To Go

    merged post from other forum.
  6. not been on here for a while due to work and work and work....... well I have had my old lexus IS200 for 10yrs now and it is going, well hopefully soon to a new home. It has been one of the best cars I have owned and regret it going but I now need better fuel economy.. It has never let me down and the only costs are service costs, well impressed with the car, it has taken me many months to decide to part with it, we have went through so much, it lived with me in Cyprus and back here again. What a car.... So your wondering what I am getting now, well its a Volvo V70 D5 SE with as many extras as you can think of, ex volvo directors car so its got the lot..... My Lexus is up for sale soon and with regret its got to go.... If anyone interested drop me a line as I would rather a lexus owners club owner have it...

  13. Rattle At 1000rpm?

    yep agree with ormi....to high gear in too low speed..
  14. It could just be that you have not been far in it and the pluggs are sooted up as it happened to me a few years back when I was only doing a couple of miles a day. take a plug out to check it and if ok will be a coil pack... need to get it on a machine to see which one then
