  1. I don't think mine has self parking, but to be honest, id be scared to use it 😂
  2. To be honest, I prefer a v8, but I needed a car ASAP, and this came up close to where I live, it drives like a brand new car, it's very clean aswell, it has 60434km which is around 34000 miles I think, or thereabouts, it also has a parking pole, 😂 it looks odd when it pops up
  3. Like steve said, it could just be a torque converter, I've never ever heard of an ls400 gearbox failing, ls430 yes, but ls400 is a no.
  4. I know rockauto sell the condenser, I remember buying one 2 years ago when I had an ls400
  5. Well I bought the mark x, it's totally different from the lexus cars I've had before, to be honest, it's nice car, I've had one person ask what it was so far, I think there's more of that to come
  6. Its a trader, and traders normally always lie just to sell a car, well most traders do anyway, thats why I never buy from a trader, I just don't trust them. Another thing is, it's a London car, and most cars in London are almost always all battered
  7. Hi I'm thinking about getting a toyota mark x, it's a 2007 with 60000km, so that's around 30000 miles. I know the engine is an is250, but what about things like brake pads, discs, controls arms etc, would they be the same as the is250 too? Thanks
  8. Yes I did, it didn't have mot at that time , but because he got it through an mot, he put the price up
  9. I've looked at this one, and it drives spot on, nothing wrong with the mechanics apart from corrosion on the springs, but thing that put me off it, is the steering wheel and that silver thing on the centre console area. Or am I just being too fussy?
  10. You know what a lot of traders are like, they'll say any rubbish just to sell a car. That's why I wouldnt buy from a trader. I'm knocking all of them, but most of them are abit dodgy
  11. I'm still looking for an ls400, the ones on ebay ain't all that, the 2 I've seen on autotrader are way overpriced, that's probably that's why they haven't sold yet, they have been for sale a very long time. I'm after either a mk3 or mk4, but I do like Steve's toyota celsior too
  12. Sounds like air bags, very expensive, unless you buy second hand, but then how long will the second hand ones last. I'd get it converted to coilovers. Also if you haven't done so already, replace the radiator too, they are prone to leaking coolant into the gearbox causing gearbox failure, your car has hit 100000 miles, best to replace it to be on the safe side
  13. Hi its the cabin filter, behind the glove box You can reset it though following this procedures: Switch the car on Press the off button on the climate control, keep it pressed until you hear a ding Switch the car off, and then back on again, and that's should clear it
  14. But I think the ones on your celsior look better
  15. Oh wow that is nice, looks like the one in the street fighter game. Nice colour too
  16. Yeah I've seen that, it's been on sale on Facebook market for long time, it's a cat c, so not really worth it
  17. He said if I want it, he would sell it to me, its got hsd coilovers, he said it still drives smooth, he said you wouldn't believe unless you test drive it
