Lexus No More...

Hi there,

A few weeks ago I wrote off my Is200. Was toying with the idea of buying it back and fixing it up, but that doesn't seem likely so I decided on a new car. As much as I loved my Lex the fuel economy was just too big an issue.

I have finally bought a Gold GT TDi 150, it's quicker than the Lex and does double the mpg! I do miss my Lex though.

I have a while before the insurance is sorted so I have a platinum ice Lex which I can swap bits off with anyone if it helps. I have fan type jets which I can swap etc...

Is there any bits that should take off to sell separately? I will sell my TRD yellow ARB's, rising sun dash dials and a few other bits and bobs on Ebay. So if anyone wants anything as a swap then let me know! Based in Salisbury if that makes it easier!

Cheers,

Mark

Looking for £250 plus shipping for the ARB's, only about 3 months old!

Nothing is on Ebay yet as I need to take everything off it and replace it with the standard stuff.

Plat ice sport grille, fan washer jets, rising sun dials xe-01, floor mats, tool kit, k and n panel filter, timer relay for auto folding mirrors.

Hoping to sell these to fun a few mods for the golf!

Really miss the Lex though!

Just been on the phone to the insurance company. They are giving me £3,250 for it and want £487 to keep it.

So I'm not sure what to do with it now! I don't think its worth trying to fix it up again as the damage was quite severe.

Think I will whip a few bits that will go unnoticed from it and go from there.

So any more bits and peices anyone wants pm me!

what else you got mate?how about a wee list?remember though roll bars are mine!! :winky:

ps hows your sister?

I have decided to buy it back from the insurance then going to put it on Ebay as a cat c write off. Will be interesting what it sells for. Too good for spares, so hopefully someone will rebuild it who has the time and space for it!

So I will just sell on the mods I have done and then advertise it.

Ormi you will def get the ARB's!! Still haven't taken them off yet, but will do soon. My sister had the baby at 01.45 this morning, both of them are doing fine.

Still got xe-01 rising sun dials, Lexus badge from air box, floor mats, plat ice sport grill, 16" alloy spare wheel, k and n panel filter, nearly new bosch battery (biggest that would fit in the tray), un cut 3 button spare key.

I will try to think if there is anything else.

Cheers,

Mark.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
