A little gem.

I was very lucky; no, extremely lucky. An elderly friend had stopped driving and wanted to sell his Lexus. I drove it home for him one day and fell in love with it. He said if I gave him a cheque for £1500, I could have it. I took the cheque next day! Full service history, new mot, tyres, battery, cam belt and pulleys, 47000 miles from new and him the only owner. Suffice to say, my wife will only let me drive it when it needs fuel and she's the biggest critic of any car I've taken an interest in or owned. The car is comfortable, quick, beautiful handling and ultra reliable. The only thing I could moan about is it's thirst for fuel but that is comparing it to it's predecessor which was a diesel ZX (now that WAS a superb car) All in all, a great buy and a great car.
