  1. I've just read the ad and he/she says it can go sideways anytime
  2. Hey check this ls430 out lol Look the gear knob https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/2001-LEXUS-LS430-4-3L-V8-3UZ-FE-VVT-I-SLAMMED-V-I-P-MONSTER-MOTED-99P-NO-RESERVE-/172932189430?hash=item28438fccf6%3Ag%3AOwgAAOSwTEBZ5d1b&_trkparms=pageci%3A1ad39946-b32b-11e7-9def-74dbd1809f8a%7Cparentrq%3A2a02a50215f0aca4ad84327bfff9e009%7Ciid%3A6

    I emailed the seller about them last week but I totally forgot to bid on it as I was worried about the cambelt on my car, so now ive had that replaced, I'll bid on it
  4. I liked both the ls430 and the mk3 Gs300. I loved the v8 engine of the ls430, it was so quiet and smooth, so many gadgets to play with, but the only reason for selling the ls430 was I was worried about the air suspension and gearbox failing as they are very costly but drive wise the car is brilliant. The Gs300 is a lovely car too, direct injection so fuel wise it was good too, I remember driving from Birmingham to London in it and I was averaging 43mpg but then again I don't have a heavy foot and the most I got in the ls430 was 39mpg again I don't have a heavy foot. Both are nice but if it was me I would probably go for a Gs300 and that's only because of the costly repairs of the ls430 but they are nice cars. The gs300 mk3 is chain driven too. What ever car you decide to get, make sure it has a good service history and the cambelt in the ls430 has been done.

    I remember buying some of main dealer, I think they were around £5 each

    Hi why don't you get the gearbox reconditioned? Or have you tried replacing the gearbox oil? Really that shouldn't be happening. Do you by any chance move the automatic gear stick sometimes while the car is moving? I have heard some people do this to other automatic cars and that can cause an issue.
  7. The blue 2006 ls430, is that the one advertised on AutoTrader?
  8. The ls430 looks familiar..i seen one very very similar in Ireland couple of years ago.
  9. That's looks really nice, nice mods too.
  10. I had a similar problem once when I went to a place in Devon for a few days, apparently something local was interfering with my then Gs300 alarm signal, when I was in the car it worked, but outside the car it didn't, I drove about half a mile up the road, and it would work from the outside, when I drove back to where we were staying, it wouldn't work from outside.
  11. abs slow speed at full lock cuts in

    Does it make a buzzing noise when you press the brake pedal?
  12. I'm quiet sure that on the boot of the ls430 you just touch the bit above the number plate and the boot unlocks and opens. They have a chrome strip on the rear of the boot, just put your fingers underneath that (both sides) and it should unlock. I had this issue when I had an ls430 and it worked.

    I agree with Neil, it won't be the bearing and it will have something to do with with the lip on the rear disc
