  1. Price dropped to a bargain £8450 The car is absolutely immaculate, and as new. Scoring the usual classifieds there is not another like this.
  2. Thanks for the kind words Paul. Much appreciated! 🙂
  3. For 100+ more HD pictures please see: Dear friends, It’s with reluctance that I’m selling my Lexus is250. I am only selling because I am emigrating. This is without doubt one of the best in the country. Since under my stewardship I have taken it a few levels above perfect. Currently it's the lowest mileage example available in the UK (i think!) I’m a car enthusiast and all my cars are beyond the standard you will find at even the very best dealerships... I have owned the car since July. The car has a warranted 27,000 miles. It has a full service history and under my ownership anything that has needed attention has been rectified. The car has the 2.5 litre petrol V6 engine. Which is a beautiful engine as it’s smooth, quiet, and powerful. It has the black heated and cooled leather with silver coachwork. This is the best combination in my opinion. The headlights are clear and bright. The leather still retains its matt finish. The interior wood paneling is bright and scratch free. The paintwork is dent and scratch free and retains its deep luster. Both front and rear bumpers are free of any scratches and cracks, unlike the majority out there. All glass is original with no chips/cracks. I have only ever used shell v power unleaded. Never any supermarket fuel. It has the following features: V6 petrol engine 6 speed automatic with paddle shift Rear sun blind automatic Black aniline leather with contrasting dove headlining Mark Levinson premium surround system Rear reversing camera Electrically adjustable front seats with driver and passenger memory Electric steering column Electrically heated front screen (not available on later models) Reinforced front bumper (not available on later models) Auto dimming rear view mirror and side wing mirrors (chromatic) Bluetooth music streaming Auto headlights with cornering function Auto wipers Satellite navigation with up to date 2018 navigation dvd original Lexus Front and rear parking sensors The car comes complete with all the paperwork including two keys, manuals etc. It has a comprehensive history. All the paperwork showing the services being carried out and any invoices are present. The history is extensive, reassuring and all present. The last full service was towards the end of August 2019. The car is HPI clear. MOT expires 3/10/2020 Under my ownership the following has been carried out to bring the car up to my standards: The alloys were suffering from the Lexus lacquer peel. Instead of getting the wheels refurbished I decided to buy four brand new updated Lexus alloys which are the same design as the originals but the lacquer peel was rectified Original black Lexus alloy wheels centre caps bought from Lexus japan Rear bumper reflector replaced as the original had a crack First aid kit fitted Lexus original windscreen wipers fitted New Lexus battery fitted Ctek battery charging terminal fitted Four new tyres fitted. Goodyear Eagle asymmetric f3. New valves fitted. Work undertaken by black boots in Chesham Four wheel hunter tracking carried out by black boots Chesham Wing mirror outer covering replaced with original Lexus items as the ones on the car had a few scuffs Full service carried out by Jemca Toyota in Colindale. Oil and filter. Oil brand Fuchs Titan race pro S and original Lexus filter. Brake fluid replaced with Castrol react performance dot 4. Differential oil replaced with Fuchs Titan race 75w 90 gear oil. Fuchs Titan race pro FST fuel treatment used Osram fog breakers fitted Lexus front discs and pads replaced by black boots Chesham Lexus rear discs and pads replaced by black boots Chesham. Hub assemblies cleaned and callipers. Caliper pins cleaned and lubricated. Engine bay completely detailed and protected with perl. High beam light bulbs replaced with non yellow versions from osram New Lexus rubber mats fitted Lexus charcoal pollen filter fitted upgraded version Puddle light bulbs replaced with led bulbs from osram Car snow foamed and extensively detailed using bilt hamber products under my ownership New f sport leather gear knob fitted Vland rear led tail lights fitted. Rear light housing cleaned before refitting. Originals retained and will be included with the car In summary you will not find a Lexus IS250 SE-L with this history and provenance, and in impeccable condition. The car wants for nothing and is utterly reliable and will last forever. It is also ULEZ compliant. Extremely comfortable to drive and to to be driven in, with no rattles, squeaks or noises. Private number number plate not included. Car will be sold with its original number plate. First to see will buy... Absolutely no time wasters please or silly offers. Please PM for further info. £9750.00 This is not your average beat up, worn out Lexus IS250.
  4. Hi guys hope all is well. I swapped out my puddle lights a few months ago with osram LEDs. No issues. Today I noticed that the puddle lights don't switch off entirely. You can see them dimming but not switching off completely. The only thing I did recently was remove the drivers door card to check a rattle. I made sure I connected everything back up properly. Any ideas please? Cheers all
  5. I did see that but the clip on the back pushes against the battery itself and does not clip in?
  6. Dear friends, How are the contents of the boot arranged please? So the toolkit and warning triangle? If anyone has a picture showing the storage arrangement that would be great! Many thanks
  7. Just a question re the battery. I fitted an original Lexus battery. On the left hand side there is a plug that has a clip on the back. Looks like it needs to be fitted somewhere but there is no obvious place? Any ideas please? Many thanks
  8. No the wheels have not been refurbished 🙂 silver is fantastic!
  9. Dear all, Here are the first few pictures of my IS. Hope you like 🙂
  10. Does anyone have the above please for an IS 250 2008 please? SE-L model. many thanks
