  1. I tried coilovers in a 430 years ago. 3 failed in 700 miles. I put the air shocks back in the front and got lexus standard shocks for th rear. Car handled great.
  2. I would try a panel beater for a cost. It may be an easy fix once the splash guard is removed.
  3. Any high end car scan be a money pit as they get old. Sometimes it the luck of the draw. My 400's only needed servicing and a few other bits and pices where as the 430 a money pit.
  4. The 430 can burn through money very easy, l would go for the 600
  5. Why do you think the ls would be a step back compared to the Volvo
  6. It is the perfect daily driver, I average 25k/y in the four LS I've had.
  7. Is the car in Ireland, if so book value l believe is about 15-16 k. What Year.
  8. A good battery should hold its voltage at around 12.5-12.8 for months in my experience.
  9. I just don't understand people's main concern when buying a second hand car is repair bills. Any old car will have them, only way to avoid them is get a new car.
  10. All I can tell you I used 20/50 in my 400's, 5/30 in the 430 and 0/20 in the 600 without any problems, though I wonder if 0/20 is too thin for long distance driving.
  11. Turn off ignition and change as normal. The plug you are referring to is the hybrid battery. Do not unplug. You could jump start the car and recharge it as normal.
