I know that Paul McCartney bought two of these new and had them airfreighted from Japan and was then ridiculed for the CO2 emissions generated by their delivery negating any fuel they would save throughout their existence!

Is this the model where boot space is surprisingly restricted due to the size of the battery pack, and it's location?

It's a Lexus - if it's been serviced it's unlikely to break in any meaningful sense. My parents have an IS250 on an 06 plate and apart from routine servicing I can only think of a recall for a fuel pressure sensor as needing attention in the 6 years they've had it.

Mate had a minging import LS many moons ago - had been to the moon and back - and apart from suspension bushes that were past its best it was similarly bombproof!
