  1. They are great cars .................... but there is a limit to what I would be prepared to pay. One way is to put £9,000 into AutoTrader and see what you get? I have owned many cars of various values over my driving career ......... the LS is by far the "BEST" car I have ever owned. NOT as practical as many .... but a cracking car to drive. Interestingly, you have to actually OWN one to fully appreciate how good they are. However, they are getting long in the tooth - would a 430 be a better option? Open for debate!
  2. Would be interesting to know what repairs have been done over that mileage.Even so what an incredible feat!
  3. If the problem persists I would be looking at warped discs. That cured my slight shake problem, which was intermittent.
  4. I travelled 160 miles each way to view the RX 300 I bought. It was well worth the journey. Whenever I travel for a car, I view it as a day out - that way you do not feel pressurised to buy. The downside is that if you travel and the description by the seller is tosh, it can be very annoying. Ask lots of questions - if the answers are not forthcoming then don't bother looking. You will almost certainly have to travel unless you are very patient for one to come up in your area. Just my thoughts, others may disagree.
  5. I have only seen one other LS 400 in my area. It is always parked in the same place, where I walk my dog. The owner happened to come out and open the boot. We exchanged a few words about the car. It is a "V" reg - he has had it since it was four years old and it now has over 300,000 on the clock. "As long as you change the timing belts they just seem to keep going" he told me! I will check the mileage again just to make sure. He is NOT on the forum. It is in good condition considering it lives nearly on the beach!
  6. The story actually involved an older couple who had won the lottery and bought a castle in France. The husband was MAD on cars and, naturally, indulged his passion! The kiss loved the fact that if he got cross with the Fiat it would always pay him back! The things you do to keep kids happy on holiday in the evening!
  7. When my children were small, I made-up a story about a little yellow Fiat (500) that refused to start if it was raining!
