What Country?

Recommended Posts

Hi every one, what country are the lexus is200 most comman in. I am determined to get the parts I want for my lexus at a reasonable price and I think buying them from out of the country is the way.

I am going to do a lot of research on this and pass on my results as I think we are all paying way too much for parts e.g sta navs, arm rests etc.

Thing this the IS wasn't massively successful in 1 country. It enjoyed good sales across Europe, Australia and the US and as the Toyota altezza in Japan. But it was still outsold everywhere in the world by 3 series BMW's, Audi A4's and C class Mercedes Benz.

US is where the most were sold and a lot of people on here talk about getting parts from the US.

Just remember, genuine Lexus parts are engineered to last longer so they will be more expensive. My IS is 11 years old, 92k on the clock and I'm still on all original shock absorbers, springs, wheel bearings and exhaust. Tell me another car that's 11 years old with the factory fitted exhaust and suspension still working perfectly?

You get what you pay for..... :)

I was thinking of secondhand parts.

Sorry I pressed edit instead of quote so may have changed your post slightly.

I was going to say you need to take into account when importing parts that you may be hit with VAT,Duty and admin charges plus shipping costs can be quite high.

Another problem could be faulty parts or the wrong part arriving.
