  3. Hi all I have a line on a GS250 and live equally close/fair from Lexus Hayes, Lexus Twickenham and Lexus Edgeware (sort of) Anybody have strong opinions, experiences (good/bad) on these dealers? Cheers! John
  4. Hi A car sitting for 2-3 weeks can drain a battery. The problem can lie in the battery, the alternator (thing that charges the battery when the engine runs) or in the car's electricals (parasitic drain). A modern car does draw on the battery in the normal course of operations - sometimes this draw is large due to an electrical fault (not fun to diagnose) If this is an ongoing issue, it might make sense to get a multimeter so you can measure the amps / draw on the engine in different situations. A quick google will give you some good generic videos on how to diagnose Cheers
  5. Hi Some adverts I've come across indicate a upgrade sound system (Mark Levinson) - how do you tell if a car has it or not? From the pics, the radio units seem identical - thanks in advance
  6. Hope you're well! Need some advice pls on buying a used Lexus - I am new to the country 1) I am looking at a used 2012-13 GS250 or GS450h - leaning to the 250 as I will likely be doing low mileage per year 2) The listing prices on AT UK and CarG are significantly higher than used values (I used Parkers). Can you pls point me to the best online price guide for used Lexus in the UK? what's accurate? 3) How does car price negotiation work in the UK (real question)? I've lived in the US (where you can aggressively offer less and not offend ppl) and RSA (where discounts are quite small/hard to obtain) 4) Any view on buying from private party vs dealer? The pricing looks quite similar 5) What are the common failure items on a 250? Example if the offer price is UK10k GBP or 12k, what would you offer to start for a cash sale? Most of these vehicles are used / old enough that I would be buying for a 3rd party dealer or private sale. Cheers! John
