  1. The only time electric cars will be a serious mode of transport( this is just my opinion) is if you can charge them up wirelessly. Something the battery car lot seem to have forgotten What happens to all the cars that are plugged into their charging points and late one night along comes little Johnny, drunk and as high as a kite with his mates out come all the charging cables. If you have a nice private drive with gates or garage then you will be OK but for huge numbers of people who live in the inner towns and cities, you won't have a chance in hell of the electric car succeeding.

    Because of the problems with your car, there are just too many problems which are likely to land you with some big bills. In my book and this is just my take on it the car is worthless. There are just too many big problems and then on top of that, there is a mileage discrepancy. your unsure of just how many miles the car has done. If you managed to get a MOT on it it would help your position. As I say this is just my take on it.

    Don't forget the dodgy MOT mileage.

    Might be worth contacting MAZ & SONS MOT & AUTO who did all the MOTs.
  8. I have seen lots of these trial on TVs motoring programmes and none of them live up to their claims and in a lot of cases, they are worse.

    Here here, I won't go anywhere else to have my tracking etc sorted. These guys are magic.
  15. There was indeed a forum member who ran an LS400 but had allowed some cowboys to throw in an LPG system and I mean thrown into the car and it never worked from day 1. The only advice I would give is to find yourself, someone, you can trust to do the install, doesn't matter how much you spend on the system if it's not installed correctly you have just thrown your money down the drain. My current LS400 was converted 7/8 years ago and it has never missed a beat.

    Maybe I'll strike lucky and get ones that's already been converted. If you go this route make sure you take someone with you who can inspect the system properly and is willing to back his judgement with money if it goes up the Swanee without a paddle.
  19. LS400

    I had both sensors replaced just to keep everything balanced by our village garage who have been servicing our family cars for the last 30 years. They replaced them with OEM. I think they were about £180 each. My Lexus has been converted to run on LPG the week after I bought her. I am paying around 46p a litre and I get around 17 MPG. She has never missed a beat and there is no loss power that I can feel. If you're thinking of getting yours converted be very careful who you get to do the install because there are more cowboys than good ones and it doesn't matter how much you pay for the LPG system if the conversion is done badly you might as well send me all the money and be happy with the thought that you have helped another LOC member to have a great holiday. There are lots of threads on here regarding LPG. You need to have a lot of patience, FSH or as near as possible is a must. Timing belt needs to have been changed and you need to see an invoice which is checkable. If it hasn't been changed then that needs to be taken into consideration in your negotiations. The only weak point is the Y section in the Stainless Steel exhaust which can be welded at a few independent garages for about £50. Be patient in your search there are still some great cards coming up but you have to be quick as genuine ones don't hang around long. One final thing, you may already know this but you can now check online for the MOT history, which is great to see what the how the cars fail and pass rate is and also a mileage check. Good luck with it and if we can be of help just give the forum a shout and we will do our best,

    Hello Connor. I have had my 98 LS400 MK4 for 8 years now and during that time she has only broken down once, (Oxygen sensor} She has 155000 miles and apart from battery tyres and annual servicing she has cost me nothing. I have never owned a car where after 8 years I still look forward to getting into her and go for a drive. She still looks a million $s when she's been washed and polished. She is comfortable, she is amazingly fast when you need here to be, the sound system is amazing. I love my Lexi.
  21. What a real pain to come back to after your holidays.
