  1. I did think about the century but just the thought of looking for import parts and mechanics not wanting to touch it scared me off.
  2. Well I finally did it. Sold the LS430 at the weekend after 2 years happy trouble free motoring. Now to plan my next purchase I've got to say that I was so impressed with the LS430 that I am still considering another Lexus....maybe something a little smaller like a GS450h ? Other options are all hot hatch variety Renault Megan 265 sport Golf GTi But like ome owners on here ...i may come back to the LS Farewell for now
  3. Cube is a bit too left field for me. Can't help looking at them as they are strangely hypnotic but can't brink myself to buy one. Variety is the spice of life but sometimes after trying that spice you end up with what you know
  4. Congratulations on your new toy. Looks very nice in that colour
  5. Oh do you mean between the LS430 and the GS ?
  6. It was about the same,£450...I am an oldie with no points but 1 non fault accident. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I have a 55 reg LS430 which I will be selling now after 2 happy years of driving. My thoughts Fast, luxurious, spacious, super quiet, relaxing. I came from a 2011 BMW 5 series touring and I wasn't sad when I bought the Lexus. The Lexus was faster and quieter than the BMW. The only compromise was av. 45mpg in the BMW and av. 25mpg in the Lexus. It was more smiles in the Lexus [emoji16] Can't comment on the GS
  8. Just noticed that one of my wheel centres is missing from my LS 430. Can anyone advise best place to source ? Are they the same size as RX and GS models ? If I go to Lexus, do I have to buy all 4 or can I just order 1 ? Thanks
  9. Ordered from an eBay breaker £15. Thanks again
  10. OMG. That's awesome If I didn't already have my LS430 ...i'd push the button and buy it now.

  16. Hello all I am considering changing my radiator and had 2 questions 1. Has anyone used or have experience of Grove garage in Brighton (japex car specialists) ? 2. Is there an alternative to the Lexus branded radiator ? Thx
  17. I am also changing mine based on a few horror stories...hopefully another 10 years motoring as you say.
  18. Thank you all. I have called Grove and now i am Just waiting for a price.
  19. Hi all My parking sensor on the driver's side right corner has started to beep all the time at low speeds. I suspect it is due to paint flaking of the sensor from previous posts. My question is ...what's the best way to restore the parking sensor ? Can I just clean the old paint off and spray over with a new can of paint ? Thanks
  20. 😃 yes front driver's side right, but not the extreme right. I pressure washed it on the weekend and the paint started to come off the sensor. It started off as a tiny chip of paint but just suddenly got worse. All other sensors look ok. I will clean off the remaining peeling paint on the sensor on the weekend and see if I can get some silver paint from Lexus. Thx
  21. I use a jabra cruiser 2... Works fine Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
