Recommended Posts

The front horns have been painted red, so it shows through the grill (THIS CAR IS A ONE OFF, and AN EYE CATCHER!!)

with comments like that ....i doubt it

Aint having the horns painted red illegal? Just thinking it could be interpreted as impersinating an officer of the law.

looks ok, and the triptronic buttons are there.........maybe no ones ever told him it's a 4clyl RS200?

and a sunroof..

if it goes for less than 7K, i'll be upset (As mine has no leather, is an AS200, no triptronic, no aftermarket exhaust, and it is nearer to where I live compared to the one I bought).

Would be suspect of the mileage quote only I reckon after my experience.

*smirk* that's rather convenient isn't it. :winky:

So much just doesn't add up with this car, eg. why does it have new seats? Is it definitely an AS200? (pic of the speedo looks like it's had a cheap conversion done?). Would a Lexus dealer have done those mods? Doesn't sound very "genuwine" to me!!

I would advise people to steer clear... I asked him a few questions regarding history, engine and mentioned BIMTA and lets just say he wasn`t forthcoming, and didn`t know what he was talking about...

I have had this before, it depends on what SVA house you take it to..

Basically just means they taped over the K rather than replace the Clock ...MH=miles per hour

I think we should all bombard him with questions...lol and request more pics... ie engine bay etc

i have already asked him about pictures - says he cant take any he also said that it was an SE model! so dont think it is an import.

And his feedback is really bad... his swearing is terrible, should be banned from ebay...imho he trades in salvage - have a look at his previous sales - VW GOLF interior for heavens sake - where would you get that from other than an insurance job!

Me again (last time)

I quote - " THE MILES ARE GENUWINE, DUE TO ME BEING A DISABLED DRIVER; I HAVE KEPT THE CAR IN GOOD NICK, AND HARDLY EVER DRIVE IT. "

If that's the case where is the disabled badge in the windscreen???

Anyway, the numberplate is T761 HTR and the car is a LEXUS IS 200 (99 ON) SE AUTO - I thankyou!!!

Check it out on www.directline.com

Hmm, so the speedo shots of a tezz and the tip buttons are of a 300/rs ??

The passenger electric seat (and metal scuff plate), european sport?

Cool - wish I'd thought of that!

He bought the speedo from another ebayer back in May - check his feedback history.

If it's an SE then the leccy seats are standard (maybe he's just had them re-trimmed?)

A brand new set of seats would be a bit pricey, especially from a Lexus dealer. But the metal scuff plates are reasonably cheap (I had mine fitted for free! :winky: ).
