  1. A 430 owner from Scotland who needed the AWD because his location.
  2. IMHO the 460 SE-L was and may still be one of the best large saloon cars ever made, add to this the AWD which completed the package. It just never seemed to be the right thing to do to tow a caravan with this magnificent car.
  3. Well after some 25 years of owning a Lexus which were a 400, 2 430's, a GS450H and my magnificent AWD 460 SE-L I am Now Lexus Less. Having bought a touring caravan I was never going to fit a towbar to the 460 so it's had to go. Good luck to you all out there enjoy your Lexus's or Lexi however you wish to describe them.
  4. What year is the 430? I have an old unit I took out of an 03 car, it has a couple of lines across the screen when switched on.
  5. You can get an online manual free from here https://drivers.lexus.com/lexusdrivers/resources/manuals-warranty
  6. I'm not sure if this link has been posted before but I came across it today on the Lexus Media Site: http://media.lexus.co.uk/product_info/ls-archive/ls-460-archive-2007/ LS460UKlaunchpack2006.pdf
  7. That's an interesting site, for some time I have been trying to get definitive information as to if my car is the only LS460 AWD. Looking it up it seems to stack up, the last 460's came in in 09 and it is only showing 1 throughout the report.
  8. Yes Pete thanks for that your right, the topic I posted was some time ago and the links might not be relevant anymore, the system works great though.
  9. Not going down that far but going to Beer in Devon next week for a rare outing in the 460. The Mem Sahib will probably sit in the back with the front seat passenger seat folded and pushed forward, the Sun shades up, and reclined in the seat. The good news is She won't ask "are we there yet" as I can lower the rear screen and have the satnav on for her. looking forward to another outing in this most sumptuous limousine.
  10. Yes sorry good spot ignore my ramblings probably had a senior moment
  11. Jonathan, you got me thinking about fuel consumption on the various models so I looked this up Lexus Fuel consumption https://www.auto-data.net/en/lexus-ls-model-650#LS V 400 Fuel consumption (economy) - combined 10.9 l/100 km. 430Fuel consumption (economy) - combined 11.4 l/100 km. 460 Fuel consumption (economy) - combined 11.1 l/100 km. 600Fuel consumption (economy) - combined 9.5 l/100 km.

  12. Ha! Do believe you been there done that. You learn after a while they take you out to get you ****** so you can't work the next day, gives them an opportunity to catch up with there own work and away from pesky foreigners for the day. Lovely country though and they make great cars.
  13. Took the 460 AWD for one of its rare days out yesterday to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Great day weather fantastic and looked at some great cars. The only downside though was I went on the Lexus stand to look at the new LS. The promo guy was of course very enthusiastic about the car, and I listened intently to his speal, that was until he got to the door inserts, which have cut glass inlaid in them, which I personally found somewhat over bling and something the car did not need. I leave it to you guys on the verdict.
