  1. Is it just a lack of appropriate tyres or something specific that makes the ls400 useless in snow? Just back from a 2hr round trip to London Town, amazed how many newish e-class Mercs I saw struggling with the slightest of inclines. Our 62 plate CMax just trundled on bye :)
  2. Just moved house and find myself with an elderly neighbour, who just happens to have an identical Lex to mine in green/ivory. He is the sole owner from new, full LSH, 2 cambelt changes (125k miles) and zero fails indicated on the MOT site. I will ask him to let me know when he decides to sell, or is 2 Lex being greedy?

  4. Agreed, if it’s the original item.
  5. If that is Euro car Parts, it doesn’t surprise me. Make sure to check carparts4less too, sometime cheaper although they have the same parent company.
  6. Yes agreed, thought I had quoted an earlier post were it was thought dhp wheels we’re Mk4 only
  7. There is a post on here sometime ago confirming dhp wheels, maybe not suspension, were an option prior to the Mk4
  8. ^ And that is the reason I love DHP wheels The Mk4 has a restyled front end:
  9. I think I prefer the maroon one I linked on the ‘Shortage of decent cars thread”
  10. Not keen on the colour schemes but don’t let that put anyone off

  12. Can we start taking about cars again? Threads going off topic is annoying at best, and becoming more prevalent in the LS section. Mr Doofa - the car looks/reads ok, but assuming you’re ok with a cosmetically (paint) challenged one, as sounds you’ll have to spend money to get the paint right Cambelt - isn’t there a year limit too or is it just miles? It hit 68k miles in circa 2005-6 so I’d be looking at changing if it was me. springs - I wonder if used springs were fitted to pass the mot. depends on your use case, if you’re happy driving as it is, great, otherwise it *may* be cheaper buying a better example to start with.
  13. Aftermarket tierods - Mk4 LS400

    Thanks for the replies. The tracking guy said he couldn't adjust as the outer rod was effectively welded together .
  14. Gents im looking to get a local garage to replace the inner and outer tierods on my mk4 ls400. Are aftermarket parts ok for this purpose? I could supply them genuine Lexus parts, however with my cynical hat on, there's no guarantee they will fit the parts I supply, and I'm unlikely to get underneath to check what's been fitted. TIA
  15. Assuming you're trying from inside, Childlocks enabled?
  16. I would replace them as you're effectively paying the labour already, so should be a parts only job effectively. maybe just me (and newbie1 ;) )
  17. Gold DHP but in Belfast https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/1998-lexus-ls400-beautiful-condition-service-history-mot-low-miles-superb-reluctant-sale-bargain/1273233359?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_ios&utm_medium=social&utm_source=ios_social
  18. But still, those items are potentials for any V8 barge? I'll ignore the PH comments for now, but may have to wade in after a couple of glasses of Malbec :) "....and ANOTHER thing!...." <hic>
  19. Lots of positive feedback, although some 'nay-sayers' to start with, mentioning brave pills etc? I get the 'character' comment, but not the brave pill prescription
  20. Looks like the ‘old Baz’ car that was on C&C a few months ago. Pretty sure it was last listed then for 3k
  21. Best colour combo :)
  22. It's strange as the engine on my ls400 is more vocal when accelerating than the Audi s8 D2 it replaced. One of the reasons I've kept the LS.
  23. I'd never heard of a Century before, what a fantastic thing! What did the v12 come out of? I can't recall any Toyotas with a v12.
  24. Same for me, although my lowest for around town is circa 21-22.
