Having got back yesterday from our Austrian trip I discovered, as expected, that my Celsior is limited to 112mph. That's fine, but I also discovered my cruise control is limited to 65mph!  So if anyone knows how/if cruise can be changed it would be very helpful.  That aside the car performed perfectly with silence and supreme comfort and amazing MPG.  I also discovered the importance of having ALL documents with me after being stopped by the German police in an unmarked car. They seemed sooo disappointed!

but we do have them here too, but just UK police

I was often stopped in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy in times past on my travels ........  mainly coz they had never seen such a rare car like my Ls400 ...........  even rarer than on UK roads :whistling:

It annoyed me the way they got me to park beside them and then moved their car behind mine so I couldn't escape!  That and the way they had no sense of humour whatsoever.  Only 4 other Lexus cars spotted during the whole trip, an LC500, a CT, an RX and something else that looked like every other car on the road!

Mine was delimited when I bought it having been done after importation, the cruise control was sorted by cutting a link inside the cruise ECU. Same with the rear fog lights done professionally with a relay using the 2 inner cluster tails lights and dual filament bulbs so no “Look I’m an import” retrofitted fog light attached to the lower bumper.

I'm looking forward to lots of photos!  Does it have many parts from any UK spec Toyotas/Lexus?

Shares the interior with the LS430 from the looks of it. Door cards, dash, seats look identical to my 2004 LS.

    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
