I have finally taken the plunge and bought an LS430. I've had my LS400 for 10 years now, easily the best car I have ever owned and I will be keeping it. My wife would never let me sell it anyway. The new car is really lovely, only 112,000 miles 51 Reg, Mystic Gold. It has a few niggles but nothing I can't fix myself. If the air suspension acts up at all I will fit coilovers . Also I have bought a Auto Transmission cooler to fit to the front so I don't get the dreaded " water in the auto box " problem. That pretty much covers any likely troubles it will give me, but I don't expect it to be as near flawless as the LS400. I'll post a picture of it when I've finished claying and buffer polishing the paint.

Tip (if you haven't already): put the transmission in power mode and leave it there.

It then becomes predictable, and with your foot as the instant gear lever.

After a while there will be two brains in perfect harmony. Bliss :)

I won't wax lyrical about having coilovers as well, but those and that vvt v-8 ____________

World's best 4 seater?
