  1. Yes Joe, this is the one lexuschap had for sale I remember the number plate very well and I am shocked to see the 'buy it now' price for £3500!! lexuschap had it for £1500 and previously I think another member on here said it was for sale at £999 with another dealer....
  2. Rust In Peace

    Will be making a contribution here - with photos and details as my MK3 had rust issues. Think it will be of great benefit to all of you in the community :outforcount:
  3. David, that looks good and wonder if the private plate comes with it....
  4. Some good suggestions there fellas.....sticking with my leased 'Benz for the time being as the daily hack. Missing the waftiness of the LS for trips out though.
  5. Phil, that is what I thought - too much money. Headlight plastics were also fogging over, whole car inside needed an intensive valet. Underbody looked ok, some surface rust although nothing to be too concerned with - most of the underside as far as I could see retained the plastic/foam shrouds and none were out of place, damaged or missing. Oil was relatively clean, no mayonnaise and no smell of burnt. Generally, most of the other fluids were low and I had a good look around the engine bay with a high intensity torch and could not see any leaks.
  6. Very true Mike, pictures speak more than a thousand words in this case
  7. Hi Guys, went to see this 2001 LS430 today - Y908 PTF, the seller said that a few people had been along to view - anybody on here or have you owned this car? http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201503031382009?radius=1500&postcode=pe113af&channel=cars&onesearchad=used%2Cnearlynew%2Cnew&model=ls_430&quicksearch=true&page=1&sort=default&make=lexus&search-target=usedcars&logcode=p On looking through the documentation, I saw an ebay printout of this car with Lexuschap as the seller. Without judgement, these were my observations about the condition of the car: Front bumper had been very poorly resprayed - accident damage? Passenger wing mirror housing cracked/split Steering wheel motor moves up and down - no telescopic action OSR Passenger window with white patch Bonnet surrounding grill heavily stonechipped Aircon requires regas? Pulls to the left if you release the steering wheel momentarily Alloys need a good refurb Not a bad drive otherwise and all the other electrical bits worked properly. It was off road between 2005 - 2013 and I have checked this out on the DVLA MOT history web page and so this is corroborated along with the mileage.
  8. A friend of mine is a trimmer so a small split in the seat would be easy for him to repair....also seen this on autotrader and looks quite tidy, anyone been to see it or come across it before? http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201503031382009?radius=1500&make=lexus&search-target=usedcars&quicksearch=true&model=ls_430&onesearchad=used%2Cnearlynew%2Cnew&sort=default&channel=cars&page=1&postcode=pe113af&logcode=p
  9. The bordeaux red LS400 DHP by the aforementioned 'Lexuschap' looks OK, anyone been to see it? Sold my MK3, so now 'sans' Lexus :-(
  10. Needed a full valet and detailing session then!
  11. This one looks nice, what do you think it is worth? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LEXUS-LS400-MK4-LOW-MILEAGE-FANTASTIC-CONDITION-FSH-/231640216778?hash=item35eed534ca
  12. Hi Rob, I have had my LS for two years this year....you had an Omega? shhhh, don't really reveal this to too many people - I secretly love the Omega's predecessor which if you remember was the Senator 3.0 24 valve and these were very popular with the old bill as a pursuit vehicle. The chip cutter grill was an acquired taste though :outforcount:
  13. Hi everyone, sadly, I have come to a decision to sell my LS400 as I simply do not have the time or facilities to give her what she deserves. If anyone on here would like to take her on, then please pm me. :( If I get time this week, I will post a full advert on here.... Jeremy
  14. Rob - 270 miles is quite a way....I do 194 miles round trip to Japex, so not too bad. Japex will save you money, they don't charge the earth for labour, go way way beyond what many garages do and they are family run and owned. The time/cost ratio is easily worthit in my humble opinion. Just for you 'ahhhhh poor old boy' :outforcount:
  15. Rob, a very big welcome to the LOC. I live in Lincs too and think nothing of driving my LS400 down to Japex in Kings Langley - they specialise in Japanese cars and they know the LS range very well.
