Geoff Stockle has a 56-plate IS220D that has amassed an impressive 197,000 miles. He says: “I bought it in October 2012 for £7999. It had one previous owner who used it for business and so had enjoyed full Lexus servicing and maintenance.
“Given what I paid for it, the level of spec, the comfort factor and low running costs – the most I’ve spent was £750 for discs, pads and bearings – it has been a bargain. If it fell to bits tomorrow, I still really couldn’t complain, given the miles I’ve done in it.”
