  1. Would be interested in the rear centre armrest if the interior is black. Interior is tan and exterior is gold. Far too many good partsleft on the car before it gets crushed :-(
  2. Mike , I am in Fleet and breaking a mark 3 car if you need any parts. All cheap, especially if you remove them yourself as it is goingbtoscrap dealer soon.
  3. I used to think this of my LS400. I considered it to be the crank gently splashing on the oil in the sump........ But whe the revs rise the thumping splash disappears.
  4. Is there any one with a Mark 3 that I could plug my aerial into your cars loom and just see if it works? I live in Fleet, M3 J4a and commute to Hemel Mepstead on M25 to M1 J8, so anywhere local or in between? Many thanks in advance.
  5. There is lots more parts available on the breaker car. It is a Mark 3 car if any one else needs a few parts or more. Happy motoring :-)
  6. I think if you jack the car up, while the suspension is hanging down, you might be able to see up at the springs with a torch. On a previous car, both mine broke about half a coil turn from the top, ...... On both sides.
  7. I am breaking a mk3 ls400 and all of the rear suspension is available. I have an account with UPS too. Most parts cheap, because I want to help and I can't keep the car for ever.
  8. I have broken an LS400, and I am breaking another, getting the rack off is not the end of the world. Not easy, but very do-able. Just takes a bit of time and effort...... which is probably why a stealer would charge a lot of labour to do it. Mine is a MK-3, so I dont know if it would fit your year. Have a look on LEXLS, there could be some good information there.
  9. My mate has a civic type R and he too cant beleive how hard and for how my old LS400 pulls like a train from 30 onwards to quite a high speed. Sometime he cant keep up and other times he cant get away. Tee-Hee And for a luxury barge he is amazed.
  10. I am breaking a MK 1995 car if you need any parts. I am based in Fleet, M3 J4a.
  11. sometimes you can get a little condensation in the engine..... and thats how a little water gets into the oil. I dont know if this is compounded by all the small journeys. As for the MPG, I am not surprised, the car will only be warm for half the time. Just clean the oil filler cap and enjoy happy motoring.
  12. I read that AA researh suggests that the average puncture happens wvery 110,000 miles. I would leave a spare wheel at home, ready to be brought out to me if needed, when not far from home.
  13. Hello all, there is still a lot of this car left. As well as the trim, the interior and all the suspension and mechanicals..... I also have all new parts for a cam belt change, with pulleys and water pump etc, genuine Laxus parts. There is a set of 5 17 inch DHP wheels (7 spokes) and I have some other spare wheels in 5 spoke and 10 spoke designs too. 4 brand new tyres.....only £160. PM me.
  14. A whole set of 4 tyres for ONLY £160 now. Delivery can be arranged at an additional small cost. PM me. or you can try making me a very very close offer?
  15. I have a copy of the user manual, but no wiring diagram. send me a PM with your email and I will forward them to you. When I had issues with my Scorpion 5000, the service manager at Guildfold Lexus remembered them. That was 3 years ago though. I would expect that Thatcham could/should have lots of technical details. I guess you have searched the other threads on here. Good luck.
  16. Does your motor smell like a chip ship going up the road. I like the idea of alternative fuels - LPG for me at the moment but if it gets much more expensive I will have to plant sugar beet in my field (8.5 acres) and turn it into alcohol for my Lex. Bren Bren, ask yourself how worried I might be if my motor is a little smelly as I drive about at the equivalent of 300 mpg cost compared to a proper car ( ls400). Mare, it is 2 pence a mile. Actually it only smells when it is cold, an
  17. If you are interested......these are still abailable. :-) can deliver/ship at reasonable rates too. PM is good.
  18. I have details of the scorpion 5000 alarm fitted to the 1995 ls400 cars if any one needs them. pm me your email address.
  19. I have had 2 1995 MK-III LS400s. Both fantastic cars, best car ever, just a very different drive to my Ferrari Testarossa. If I could afford the Fuel, I would get another MK-III. I hear the newer cars have more toys, just not quite the same whisper silent smooth ride as the 400. Daily drive is now a top of the range Skoda, Laurin & Klement Octavia 1.9 TDI running on WVO, 50mpg at 25pence a litre makes my 25,000 miles a year very affordable . Horses for courses.
  20. I got my oil ffrom Toyota. 60% discount about 5 years ago. Buy in Bulk, 60 litres (that is 12 containers), only £11 each compared to £25 retail. I had to wait 2 days for it to come in though. Filters I got a box of 10 from the USA (Sewell Lexus) at about 4 USD eash.
