Lexus Owners (To share driving experience and advise)

Recommended Posts

True, but still the style of it when the ladies sit in it is plus. To my character, maybe next round if possible, go for the Merc

 

Bro, I can calculate it, but I wanna drive when I come back each time and I want the ES cos of my character too. When I like it, look at myself and just whack. Haha 

 

It is really to each and his own, for me I do not drive harsh. Enough power from the ES liao. I prefer to have a spacious comfy ride. Same when I carry the old folks around. I made my point to ensure the old folks are happy cost when I used to have the Jimny from the 80s, my mother just not happy.

 

Sounds like you are a chauffeur le

:XD:

Only a non car lover will say they buy a car cause of the service! A petrol head will always buy the car for what the car is.

 

A car lover does not have to be a petrol head. Just saying.

I look at it pragmatically.....

 

my annual mileage is pretty low, so I had to be reminded to go back to get the 1st servicing done at 1 year mark by my car onboard computer when my mileage is only 2/3 of the minimum mileage for servicing.

 

So for me to consider the servicing level as a top consideration for a once a year event over the other consideration like car design, fit and finish and drive which I am to face daily, it doesn't make any sense at all.

 

but of course caveat is the service level must be decent for the category of car you buy. 

 

 

(ps. I have experienced mercedes and lexus service before to make such a statement)

 

Maybe you can try Lexus or ask your neighbour why they chose it. My Wife looked at the GLC, XC60, Q5 and Evoque but ended up with an NX... main reason - SERVICE.

You will feel the Lexus service when you walk into the showroom. I live by the rule that I will never buy the same brand of car again but with the Lexus I am thinking of ditching that stupid rule.

I think I posted here before about my hit and run case.

 

After 3 months I finally got closure via private settlement at a repair cost far lower than what it'll have cost if claimed under insurance.

 

From this

To this

Dechromed the grille shortly after for a wider and more sporty look machiam the LC

F-Sport IS200t owners, does your car come with foglamps? I can't seem to find it at stockists. Now there's a glaring hole at the foglamp area in mine.

 

Are there any mesh covering the opening at the sides of the grille? Mine is also open now.

 

Can PM me also to share cost and place for grill upgrade?

Probably some generic parts supplier... you think only Enkei or BBS make wheels?

 

Only confirm is that the top range F models - GS F, RC F uses BBS forged rims MIJ.

For those who contacted me about the conversion, do note that it's a full bumper and grille replacement. Can't just switch the grille alone.

 

Also, you will lose your foglamps. The local stockists doesn't have stock nor know the part number.

 

For white cars, there will be a colour diff cos fresh paint vs old paint, there'll surely be a difference.

 

I have ordered a plug and play set from eBay. It's DOT and SAE certified, and will give FR once it's here.
