  5. I Just Bought One!

    Hi All, Just have to tell you that my non-working stereo problems have been sorted. Lexus in Bromley fixed it for NOTHING!!! Can't speak highly of the level of service there and to have put it right for free (along with 2 coffees while I waited) was a big surprise. And you're right - the stereo was indeed worth fixing. Have travelled some 2000miles in 'Lionel' since I bought him without a hitch. I don't want to sell it but a friend is giving me his B** 325i and I can't afford to keep them both. 'Keep the Lexus' I hear you saying...
  6. I finally succumbed and bought one this morning. Perhaps I rushed into it...£1250, 134K miles, white, FSH (though I think the stamps look remarkably fresh and the writing in the book too consistent!) blah blah blah. I posted a question on the 'Audio' section of the forum, but in case you don't read it, I'll put it here as well and perhaps someone could help me out: Hi I've just purchased my first Lexus - a K-Reg LS400. It's not flash, but should get me around for a short while at least. The stereo is not working, with 'HELP' printed on the display. I don't have the original radio code, but the guy I bought it from gave me a sheet which has some instructions on it (on top of the owners handbook). It says: 1) 1,4,6 Power button 2) Display 'Dealer' (I can't get this step to show anything other than 'SEC' 3) Tune up +1 4) Enter 597 5) Tune Down +1 6) Enter 468 7) Press Ti or SDK (I can't find an 'SDK' button) There are some further numbers on the sheet: 810 248 or 284 691 205 (then, in a box: 248 and 448) --- 891 SDK 440 I'm quite mystefied and keep getting 'err' messages when I try these numbers. Is there a quick solution? He told me the radio was dead b/c a new battery was recently fitted... Lovely drive though. A radio would certainly break the silence! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! CHRIS

  8. Hello And Wanted...

    Hi Si, I am indeed on both counts! Are you a musician also?
  9. Hello everyone. I've spent the last few days trawling through many of your comments and suggestions and everything Lexus-based. A brilliant job guys - and very informative for the complete Lexus novice that I am. I'm very close to purchasing my first Lexus - an LS400. I've looked at a couple including one that said it was in 'mint condition' with 84K for only £900. While it drove beautifully, it was clearly more than a bit dodgy and I think that a '2' or even a '3' had been left off the front of the '84k' (!) While I know that an early LS400 isn't the most appropriate car for the poor student that I am, it has been a dream of mine for many years to own one, and I will be taking some long road trips in the next month, so was hoping to find a nice wafting silent Lexus rather than being subjected to a Seat Arosa from London to Aberdeen! My plan is to keep the car only for a short time to give me a taste of the Lexus drug, after which I'm sure I'll be well and truly addicted! Does anyone know of a reasonable LS400 for sale? My budget is probably unrealistically low... Thanks again for your brilliant forums on Lexus and I hope that I can become a full-blown (i.e. Lexus owning!) member soon! CHRIS
