  1. Hi Malc, I called in to my local Aldi and bought one. I will try when dry in the week and see how I get on. Will report back. Thanks for the info on them.
  2. Did it not have some kind of glass bubble roof?
  3. I agree with Messi, if you can find a good one as I think I did then get a 430 facelift. I have the radar cruise which works well, but again wouldnt miss it. I do prefer the tweaked styling and I reckon the build quality is superb. Interestingly a friend of mine has a MK1 LS430 and a 02 Mercedes 500S Class as his Sunday car (nice). He tells me the S Class is very quick and a great drive, but says the build quality and materials used are superior in the LS.
  4. Dave at Lextek checks mine every 6 months, so I've had it checked 3 times now and he says it's fine....... mmmmm wonder if he'd pay if it did go. Perhaps I will get it done.
  5. I love my 430 face lift. I wouldn't miss the buttons in the back, my kids just asre about with them turning music up and down, stations changed. Used my fridge twice, once when it was freezing outside and I wanted to have cold beer when I arrived home. I've not as yet had an issue with my air suspension but i'd like to know how a 430 rides with standard suspension. Yes Paul Frost for bits, very helpful chap. I keep on top of mine so if the cd player failed I would replace. What other things dont work? Perhaps 2.5 a little on the high side. In Sheffield I keep seeing a very nice 400 with Lex as the reg. I didn't always appreciate how nice the 400 was, cleaner lines. Looking almost classic and modern at the same time, so as Pete says also look at the 400. However as already said I love my 430, a great car and I try to think that for its age and what it cost, would be as comfortable, fast and reliable as my LS?
  6. Thanks I enjoyed that. So I take it from what Scotty says if you want a reliable older luxury car buy a Lexus? Also I only use standard petrol, is that wise?
  7. Hi, not sure on the other stuff but I've just bought the 2017/18 Nav DVD off ebay for £20. Should be here tomorrow so I will install and let you know how i get on.
  8. The Jag XJ is a lovely car and I've thought about it......... but no not at the mo. Enjoy your Jag it looks very nice
  9. It was a genuine Lexus part (does that mean Toyota?) and i was charged £165 + vat for the sensor and £40 + vat to fit. No more light on the dashboard!
  10. It's the bank 1 sensor 1, so nearside before the cat. I dont know what any of this means as Dave at Lex Tek told me. I had no running problems though, as smooth, soft and silent as ever.
  11. Thanks and it is the 02 sensor, all sorted for tomorrow!
  12. This evening VSC warning, engine light and the ECC light came on (is ECC right? the traction control one) when i started her up. Car ok just these lights. Any ideas ? Many Thanks Nick
  13. Hi sorry to hear of your car trouble. I have used Dave at Lex Tek, Sheffield. He's good guy and knows the LS well.
