hi all,

 

New member and new Lexus owner here! Stumbled onto the forum after recently picking up my black Lexus IS350 F sport here in Perth, Western Australia. First time Lexus owner but my Father's been a Lexus fan for a number of years.

 

Bit about the car

2011 Lexus 2IS IS350 F Sport finished in black on black interior.

Done 142,000kms when I picked it up 

Decent enough service history and condition

Only one key though, so I'll organise to have a second one cut asap as I hate the idea of only having one working key and getting locked out

 

A bit about my cars to date.

First Car

2004 Mitsubishi Magna VRX manual

Great fun first car, perfect for what you need. Cheap to buy, cheap to run and cheap to maintain. 5 speed manual made the 3.5 V6 move surprisingly well.

Owned this for around 4 years

 

Second car

2000 BMW E46 330ci.

My first taste into Euro/nice car ownership! This was a minter, finished in a shade of British Racing Green over tan leather with wood. Lovely car that I bought off the same family I bought it new back in 2000. Owned this for almost 6 years.

 

Third car

2006 BMW 130i

Now THIS was a fun car. 3L straight 6 engine, 6 speed manual in a tiny shoebox hatch back. Took it to the track at Barbagello Raceway here in WA and had a blast. Only owned this for around 10 months as I moved into a place with only one bay (I owned this the same time as the prior mentioned E46).

 

I still owner the E46 at time of writing (27/3/21) but maintenance is getting too much. The car is now 21 years old with almost 200,000kms. Whilst that isn't crazy mileage for that M54 B30 engine, its' wear and tear items that are letting go. And I'm getting sick and tired of opening my wallet every few months for 'something small'.

 

So, what do you do? Buy a Lexus!

 

Like I mentioned, Dad's been a big fan of Lexus for ages. He's owned:

 

2008 Lexus ISF (sold)

2015 Lexus RCF (sold)

and now a 2019 Lexus LC500 (current)

 

Now, can anyone tell me how to embed photos here??  I want to lay the photos out around the text it mentions
