Nice job on the purchase! That is one of cleanest SC's I've ever seen! I would give almost anything for an SC that clean! Do you want to trade?

16,000 miles? I want to shoot myself

The only way this car could be any more perfect is if it was a year newer

Hello!

Thanks for congrats!

I looked over 2 years for a Lexus GS430 S16 in Austria, but any more 20 was not sold and only 2 silver without moonroof and to expensive.

Last month, i searched in google for second hand car sites, normaly, we have 3 main sites in Austria. On the third site of google, i found a site with the name www.flohmarkt.at (flea market) and i looked for Lexus.

And i see the SC400!!!! i read the announcement 5 times and a i called the number. On the next day, i drove 350km to the SC and saved me the car

The last owner was a old man from the music business, and he died last year in november. He imported 1997 the car from the usa to Austria for himself. The SC have a own garage and was driven only by sun, never in the winter.

This is one of 2 SC400 in Austria, the 2nd is a green 92 with over 60.000miles and is 3-4 years in a parking garage stored.

Today, i become my license plates

Next steps: demount the cellphone holder and change the damaged parts from the mounting, big service (timing belt, oils, plugs) and a other radio.

greets

Tom
