It has been 1 year and 2 months since i have sold my GS450 , i just sold my Audi A8 and my plan was to buy something sensible , economical as my work commute of just 14 miles per day can be done comfortable in pretty much anything but me being me as always and my plans always getting ditched due to an emotional decision i have decided to browse a website known for selling damaged vehicles and looked for a Lexus.
This is when i knew i have found my next car and despite my brain shouting pretty much to move away from it , i chose with my heart . It is a Lexus LS600h L from 2008 with 92k miles looking a bit sorry for itself , not starting due to an unknown condition and having a burn damage as well as no history and just one key , the card key .
I have managed to go and have a look at the car before the auction day and to be honest i was a bit disappointed as it was looking very for itself , i have seen that i t has just one key , no service history , no paperwork about it , the interior looked like someone lived in it for a while , front bumper with some scuffs as well as the rear . The fire was nowhere to be seen , despite looking at the engines for a while so in the end i said ''challenge accepted'' .
The auction day came and in the final round was a romanian (me) and a polish guy , it got a bit over my budget and just a few seconds before the bid to finish i have outbid my competitor and won it .
I have already discussed with Westfeld Motors in Rayleigh , my old lexus garage to see if they would take such a project and also with Richard from the Hybrid battery solutions in case there is any problem with the hybrid systems and both said they will do it .
The payment day came , paid the car , asked the place if they can let me take a few things from the car and also if they can deliver it to Westfield Motors which they agreed . I took all the items from the car hoping to find something about the previous owner and more information about what the hell happened to this car .
Here are the pictures taken from the auction website and the description of it .

Hi, new to forum, there may be an already existing thread but I cannot find anything......ANYWHERE! I need an ecu pinout for a 2001 is200 using a 1gfe with an ecu number 89661-53200. I need this pinout diagram and expertese to fit a bee*r limiter basically because I want one and I like being a loon in my car. There are people who hate/disagree with them, however I would like one in my car and I would appreciate help fitting it.
any help appreciated.
Hello im looking to get install a turbo into and IS200 and looking through this forum and various other forums I've not really found a clear answer to my question. Can you just install a turbo onto the is200 without having to buy this £2300 kit? For example, could I just change the manifold and install a turbo without having to spend all that money. I understand that some stock internals may need to be upgraded however e.g. flywheel, manifold and such.
Hi all, please don't be calling me cheap or tight here, but my right hand wing mirror glass is smashed, i tried the self adhesive 'universal' stuff that you cut to size, but it totally distorts the view.
I don't want to pay £120 for the glass, or £200 for an entire second hand mirror in the wrong colour (electric, heated, folding), so my question is:
What similar mirror glass can i pick up for £10-£20, even if its slightly too small and not heated? Anything will do, thr rx400h mirror looks close, but even a mondeo or astra miror glass is fine, provided its not too big, and will fit inside the recess?
Hello everyone! I picked up my first IS200 SE last week for the princely sum of £650. She has 97,000 miles, one owner, full history and lovely in every way apart from the bodywork. My plans are to slowly restore it to a nice standard. Primarily lots of small bodywork and paint repairs including the seriously scuffed alloys.
PLANS Remove major scratches and minor dents. Repair deep dent on rear panel. Deep polish to remove the pretty bad swirl marks. Alloy repair and respray. Tint rear windows. Spray chrome rear light inserts red (sorry, not a fan of lexus lights). Make sure everything is fully rust proof and pristine for longevity. Cruise Control retrofit (if possible). Wire folding mirrors to central locking.
