  1. I am not sure why other than anecdotal evidence. I have also asked this. The RX400h cat is very exposed having had a look underneath one the other day
  2. Thanks. Marginal gain! Another member mentioned the suspension towers are less intrusive too so the volume should be a bit bigger.
  3. Hello All, The ongoing theft of cats on RX400H's has put me off and I am considering upping the budget to early 450H money, as the theft rate of cats seems massively lower. I was wondering if anyone who has owned both could comment on the boot space of the 450H. Is it any bigger than the 400H? Thanks.
  4. Mind if i ask what the fitted price is at Toyata/Lexus? Fancy posting a pic? Would be great if this proved effective.
  5. How much is the new CatLoc fitted? Is it too early to know whether it is an effective deterrent or are reports good!? Apologies if off topic but are RX450H's less vulnerable due to recessing the cat or A.N.other design change? i have previously mentioned that cat theft has put me off an RX400H, a car that is otherwise my #1 choice 😞
  6. Excellent. I can go and buy an RX400H and not worry now! ..thereby making introduction of an LS430 easier. Job jobbed
  7. Hello All, Does anyone know if the problem of cat thefts from RX400H's is also a threat to LS models? thanks
  8. As I wrote higher up, I have been put off buying an RX400H because of the cat thefts. I have a saved search on AutoTrader for RX's and the number of cars for sale seems to be increasing. I think some owners are getting fed up. I wouldn't say there has been an obvious fall in prices however. I am also wondering what they are swapping them for - pure EVs maybe?
  9. Apologies again for meandering off to discuss another car. Note to self - start a new thread for each car! I don't want the gold one.
  10. Apologies. I confused the thread yesterday by asking about a different car. This one in fact - a blue pre facelift. The seller has confirmed to me separately it started sinking around 3 months ago. He has owned it since 2011. The seller of the gold car has not offered up whether his is sinking or not, although looking at the pictures it does look low at the back (conjecture). Once again - apologies for thread confusion!
  11. Yep no worries. I guessed that. Thanks. Seller says it has been happening about 3 months. He believes lack of use may have caused it. He also says it pumps itself up at start up and drives fine after that. I am possibly trying to talk myself into believing it would carry on being "ok" for a couple of years (when the timing belt is due) and assuming regular use again! Seller seems a decent chap and has been up front about a couple of other issues.
  12. Thanks @RgrWynne that is reassuring to know. This is the car I am referring to. It is a pre-facelift in lovely dark blue with pale leather, which is arguably my favourite combination. The question I am asking myself about the saggy rear is do I feel lucky punk?! Note also timing belt due in a couple of years working forward from 75000 miles. thanks.
  13. General question this as I am not keen on full Werthers spec gold. IF an LS430 sags at the rear overnight then would I be right in assuming this means leaky air strut(s). If it then rises up when the car starts is this acceptable or is it still impending doom and walk (run?) away. reason I ask is because a local one has popped up where the seller has been open about this. thanks.
  14. Thanks. Yes I spotted that. I can't help but think it is sitting low at the back. Perhaps it is just my old eyes.
