  1. Past hour
  2. It took a while to sell mine... have to find a Lexus enthusiast, most others are looking for European performance cars. The guy I sold to was the same, once I told him how much (little) it costs to maintain/insure this compared to ze germans... and drove him around the block - he was convinced that this was a better buy than the other's he'd been looking at. TBH, around 5 years back, I was in similar situation, looking for an Audi S5 (or maybe M5) till someone told me about Lexus - I didn't even know that Lexus had a performance car at the time other than the LFA. @rysith - it maybe worth considering removing the aftermarket parts (except the body kit) and selling on this forum - it's likely you'd get a few interested folks. you've got more than 10K in upgrades, Unlikely you'll get the value of those upgrades in the price of your car as single sell. best of luck with the sale.

  10. How the heck is this ISF still not sold? I would've bought it if my finances aligned!
  11. Agree. I think the routing algorithm used by Lexus' navigation units is different from Google's. I've often compared what the Lexus navigation unit shows as opposed to using the shortest/quickest way that I know off the top of my head and it is very different. I believe regardless of the version, the routing algorithm in the Lexus nav units still remains the same so you're never going to have it at the same level as Google Maps.
  12. [SOLD] For Sale: Lexus 2010 ISF - MY 2011

    totally agree...drove the M models, the AMG models and have to agree the F is easier on the pocket and all round bang for bucks
  13. Yeah, probably 8 months or so. Was off market for a while and also over Dec/Jan as I was not around. The person who bought this had never driven Lexus before - but was into Japanese performance cars. He was pleasantly surprised once he started driving it. Lexus still needs to go a fair bit in promotion/motor sport in order for people to realise that they can make performance cars.
  14. Hi Anyone using the Lexus Enform app at all. It seems to have limited functionality in Australia and crashes quite often after the latest Android 8.1 update. What are your experiences?
  15. What Is Your Best Fuel Consumption?

    Best is 4.2L/100km.
  16. Its nice to have and thanks to this thread, also got the v22 maps a while ago but to be honest, i find myself using Google maps alot as well. No matter how i set the routing, quickest, shortest, avoid this, avoid that etc, the Nav often wants to take me ways that i know are silly whereas Google maps takes me the better way so i use it as a backup but dont really rely on it. If im going to an unfamiliar area, i never trust it lol
  17. [SOLD] For Sale: Lexus 2010 ISF - MY 2011

    Congrats on the sale, hope you settled on a reasonable offer. So it took almost 1 year to sell, damn. Not that im looking to sell my ISF but i know when the time comes its a niche market. I remember when i was looking for mine for about 5 months and after purchasing, id still look out of curiosity and months later still see the same ISF's for sale :-( If people only knew what a great car they are, even the older ones
  18. RT @PGATOUR: WOW!!! 😵 @TigerWoods from 71 feet ... #QuickHits

  19. Sold
  20. Used this thread before as a lurker, registered now so just wanted to thank all you people, especially Bazzle, for the info and tips and trouble-shooting. I dl'd the Toyota Lexus Whereis V22 2016 maps, burned at 4x to a no-name (Ritek) DVD+R DL disc using ISOBURN, and it worked perfect. Honestly I'll probably still use phone GPS a lot more, but this is good for my completionist/obsessive streak, and also for when I go on roadtrips and might not have reception. So thanks all!
  21. RT @VicCompCancerCr: @TheRMH Congratulations on this milestone @TheRMH - still a leading light in research, clinical treatment and patient…

  22. Thanks so much for the clip, sounds MEAANN!!
  23. Hey fellows, I'm from NSW and wondering if anyone can be a big help to find a front lip or a full body kit for my 2002 Lexus is200. That would fit perfectly. Thank y'all linking the item would be great help
  24. Lexus LF-1 Limitless

    Like molten metal being forged into a fine Japanese sword, the lines of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept have the potential to shape the future of a flagship luxury crossover for Lexus
  25. Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept

    Lexus established the luxury crossover segment two decades ago with the global debut of the RX 300 at Detroit. It remains the top-selling luxury crossover despite nearly 50 competitors that have since entered the segment The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept introduces a new genre of luxury vehicle: the flagship crossover. Combining high performance with unrestrained luxury, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless is a showcase of technology, innovation and the latest evolution of design at Lexus. The innovative spirit of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept was created at CALTY Design Research in California. The design language is rooted in the simple yet elegant design concept dubbed “molten katana”. This design visualization fuses the organic shapes of liquid metal with the sharp edges of a traditional Japanese sword. Imagining that shift from a smooth, flowing mass into a solid, chiselled shape formed the basis for the fluid, yet aggressive design of the LF-1 Limitless concept. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #1 CABIN DESIGN: COMFORT IS KING “This is our vision for a new kind of flagship vehicle that embraces crossover capability without giving up the performance and luxury delivered by today’s top sedans,” said Kevin Hunter, President, CALTY Design Research Inc. “The LF-1 Limitless concept incorporates imaginative technology while creating a strong emotional connection by improving the human experience for the driver and passengers.” Maximum comfort for every passenger was CALTY’s goal for the cabin. The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept adheres to the Japanese tradition of Omotenashi, or hospitality, welcoming all who enter with equal enthusiasm. The front passenger space is far more open, with even fewer controls and a wide unobstructed dashboard. Those in the back get the same seats as those in front with expansive legroom and individual display screens for adjusting the climate control or entertainment options. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #2 INTERIOR LIGHT: TWINKLE, TWINKLE, IT'S A STAR! Lighting plays a key role in the look and feel of the interior of the Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept. Engaging the START button initiates a dramatic lighting sequence of ambient light based on which of the several available driving modes is engaged. For a more subtle effect, the wooden door trim has tiny perforations that allow indirect light from miniature LEDs to shine and twinkle in a variety of colours. This lighting creates beautiful movement in the interior that complement the more direct overhead lights. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #3 SPINDLE GRILLE: LET ME SEE YOUR GRILLE! Like all current Lexus models, the spindle grille on the LF-1 Limitless concept is a core element to the overall design. On the LF-1 Limitless concept, it’s been taken even further, with details that suggest the start of the spindle form at the rear of the vehicle that then continues forward toward the nose. The grille itself features a three-dimensional design with colours developed in-house by CALTY. Ridges radiating away from the central emblem suggest magnetism guiding metal filings into shape. There is no chrome, as the LF-1 Limitless concept instead uses LED lighting around the grille that greets you on arrival. BRAVE DESIGN FACT #4 GLASS SURFACE DESIGN: THE ROOF TO INSPIRE The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept takes the popular crossover genre and heightened sense of performance while challenging traditional crossover SUV proportions and styling. The concept’s long hood and powerful stance give it the look of a performance sedan while maintaining the higher ride height and versatile functionality that have made crossovers the preferred choice for so many of today’s customers. Using a large glass surface as the roof helps enhance the appeal of this concept and draws attention to the interior design. The interior involves bright, modern metallic finishes and LED lighting treatments to create an enticing cabin. Gazing through the large glass roof reveals a realm of imagination and inspiration that is driving the future of the luxury crossover category. As the Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept has not been confirmed for future production development, the use of glass on this model is entirely exploratory. LF-1 SPECIFICATIONS LENGTH 197.4 inches - 5014 mm WIDTH 78.2 inches - 1986 mm HEIGHT 63.2 inches - 1605 mm WHEELBASE 117.1 inches - 2974 mm
  26. Took this the other week and forgot to upload it, just a quick video of the exhaust on a cold start, shows sound after it finishes the warm up cycle and a quick rev or so (didn't want to give it too much as there were some people around):
  27. @chrissobarresi @DonRossJnr Is that @Cbarresi1 far right?

  28. Headers are $8000 new and exhaust $3000 - labour about $2000 for both those installed. Genune Wald wing and carbon fibre diffuser weren't cheap, $3000 for paint, and labour, etc for molding the wing, respraying the boot and building up the rear quarters (and respraying) to match the wing. Lots of money and love and effort :)
  29. I mean bloody hell, those hearders are what, $5,000 new?! The exhaust $3,000 new?! Well there is $8,000 of value!
