What's going on with these prices. Traded in my 07 plate 460 sel 100k miles 4 years ago and got £11k, which at the time, was a really good price.

Yes they seem to have firmed up. Maybe because 430s are propping them up. And of course 400s.

Hi everyone, what with taking my daughter around her extensive swimming commitments, I'm wanting to find a nice LS460 or 600 to replace my ageing but trustworthy Honda. So, if anyone knows of a nice privately owned car that might come up or it up for sale I'm in the market again!

 

I really enjoyed this forum when is was a member a few years ago with my two LS400s. If think about buying one of those again but at the moment I'm thinking that a newer car might be fun. I'm open to being persuaded though!

 

Please keep me in mind if you see anything that might be suitable. Thanks all.

Jonathan, 

If your preference is to the normally aspirated 4.6 SE-L rather than the Hybrid 600 have you considered the 460 SE-L All Wheel Drive version (AWD) 

There very rare here in the U.K. I have one and the benefits are immense in winter conditions especially compared to the standard rear wheel drive when trying to put 380 odd BHP through the rear wheels in slippery conditions. The AWD also gives other benefits such as a heated steering wheel, updated Battery and heater core.

on value for money,  remember I bought 1st September 2016 my 105k miles Sept 2006, 56 plate Full main dealer Service History,  brilliant car ............  my Honda Legend SH-AWD for £4k

Not the same as a Lexus Ls but quite honestly not far short.

They seem to be great value for money tbh  BUT it's not quite the same as driving my Ls400 :winkiss:

Convincing advert but doesn't the seller sound a little 'odd'?? Plus, not giving out the reg?? Could all be very innocent but not winning me over. Hmmmm.

Now you mention it .. the Ebay seller has certainly set a lot of do’s and dont’s there .. almost as if you turn up you have to buy it regardless .. if I were in the market I would like a day out looking at a potential purchase .. I dont find it odd the reg plate is blanked but maybe they really dont want to sell after all !?

I don't understand why the regn is blanked out at all ...  if one wants to sell a car you do all you can to achieve that. Giving potential purchasers the ability to check out the MOTs is just one of those things.........  which of course you can do with the known regn 

Worrying about fraud or cloning is a bit daft at that stage.

Thanks Derek. I'm considering the options at the moment and raising some funds too. I'm erring towards the LS600h although the tiny boot was a bit of a concern given that I lug musical equipment around occasionally. I don't think boxes of keyboards and pianos would look good in the rear seats! I might have to reconsider or get a van as well!

I agree entirely. The tone is all wrong and whatever the car is like that style of communication put me right off.

Hi Derek,

"I have one" isn't quite accurate.  If you have one, then "I have the one" would be more accurate.  Only one AWD was ever sold by Lexus in the UK, and it seems that you're the lucky person!

very lucky indeed ...........  I used the AWD on my Honda Legend the other day ..........  unknowingly driving through slightly flooded roads, reaching the point of " no return " with a really deep water level across the whole road width and seeing another car coming towards me from a really deep muddy boggy area alongside I decided no option but to follow in his deep furrows in the mud :w00t:

My Ls400 would just never have got through it all, any of it,  BUT the AWD on the Legend came into play and she performed like a country Landrover just whistling through the deep mud without a murmur ...........  the Lexus Ls AWD must surely be a great vehicle. :yes: 

Wonder why they only sold the single beast in the UK :unsure:

Scythe,

Your "I have the one" could be a more accurate statement. At first I just thought it was Lexus Manchester's sales talk trying to convince me to buy the car.

Having had a 400, 2 430's and a 450H I moved to an Audi A8 Quattro for a winter High Alpine trip, it was a nice car but not an LS so I was a sucker when I saw the LS AWD for sale at Lexus Manchester. 

You "say only one was ever sold by Lexus in the U.K." Do you have any more info on this?

The problem I have now is that I'm not using it enough just under 3k last year.

Malc, Nice car the Legend I looked at those, but went for an Audi A8 Quattro in the end, nice car but not an LS.

  • Club Hybrid Poll

  • 482 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
