  1. I suppose if the 4-5k is looked at from another angle the angle might alter perspective, so anyone any idea how much electricity running costs would be on an LS 600 per mile? (equate with mpg petrol) then add 4-5k onto that at 300k, Im sure some maths literate can work it out! (not me)
  2. You could get a mechanic with electrical knowledge to disconnect it
  3. Hmm, very, very Interesting, why are you wondering about those things?????
  4. Oh well, in that case better not buy or even look at it, although I certainly dont see those things, f/door maybe 1/4 inch out of alignment, not so surprising for a 21 years old car..cropped & lightened
  5. No need to buy a bike, if folks look around enough they will find a problem free LS400, no issues with them.....https://www.gumtree.com/cars/uk/lexus+ls400
  6. I think so, I got this after a conversation with a far NW England dealer/mechanics workshop, owner, he had good looking 430 for sale, he knew the LS400 although he did not have one in. The dealer did not like the 430's at all, he done a lot of suspension work on the one for sale, inc new air bags, he told me he thought I would be a lot better off with a good LS400, so I did just that after looking around a bit more.
  7. George, these are probably your best bet, they are not mechanics or a garage, they are air con specialists only, your in essex & these are at Hanger lane just off N Circular..... http://www.alpinair.co.uk/services/

  9. (UK) If anyone buys any car from anyone the seller of the car is not longer the provable legal owner at the point he gives a receipt for payment (or free gift) and gets both signatures on section 8 of the V5 (log book). The provable owner of the car at that point is whoever bought or was given the car. DVLA Buying a vehicle When you buy a vehicle, the tax or SORN doesn’t come with it. You’ll need to get new vehicle tax before using the vehicle. You’ll need the reference number on your new keeper supplement (V5C/2). You can also tax at your local Post Office® or by calling: Telephone: 0300 123 4321 https://www.gov.uk/government/news/vehicle-tax-changes
  10. DVLA web site..... It’s illegal to drive your vehicle until you’ve taxed it. If you do not do anything You’ll be fined £80 if you do not tax your vehicle or tell DVLA that it’s off the road. You’ll also have to pay for the time it was not taxed. If you do not pay your fine on time your vehicle could be clamped or crushed, or your details passed to a debt collection agency.
  11. They do not 'take' them to keep, they are taken to a pound, which is what pounds are for & it's not the police themselves who take the car it's parties authorized to do so by the police. Once an offence has been registered by computer into the police cars screen it is out of the officers discretion >BUT< it is not out of the courts discretion & they may well say something like ''Given all the circumstances we be lenient & impose a smaller penalty''.....or the court my say nothing & still only impose a smaller penalty than usual, or they might not.......on other words the courts have discretion.
  12. What I would say to be very careful of doing if buying it is to get tax on it ASP, do not drive off with it untaxed, any police car NR software will notify the police driver it's untaxed & it will be taken off the road there & then, so if buying it get there early enough to deal with DVLA that day.
  13. Well I asked him for reg so I could check for rust and/or corrosion, I got reg & checked it's ALL CLEAR, no mention of either rust or corrosion on any of its MOT's.......reg GY06WMC....Its crossed my mind it might have been garaged all it's life
  14. Personaly I would not buy 'any' LS unless I could see the MOT for rust and or worse still corrosion issues on the underside, which would *probably be on the MOT........^it's not mandatory these are put on the mot, in the case of this car it might be the reason the reg number is not showing.
  15. Personaly, I would not use phone, partly cause of cost but mainly I want things in writing (he's a commercial seller) but he has not given an email & someone has to join ebay to make written contact with him!!? 'Personaly' I would not bother going further, a commercial seller should have an email available in any add, there's other questions I would want to know on a 430...cant even remember seeing a car on sale without an email
