Well the insurance company offered me 7963.00 today. I am still negotiating with them. They suck!!! I guess some a*****e is going to get some very nice parts. Thanks to everyone that posted.

sorry to hear about this but i find it hard that you dont have a single picture of your car with those mods on. you can kiss your parts goodbye, i know it sucks but im being realistic and so should you. curious on how many miles is on the car, if its anything over 120k i would run with what insurance is offering like a blind bandit. gl on trying to recover the car and will keep an eye out around my area.

Just wanted to update and rant. Merucry insurance offered me $8400 less the







Just wanted to update and rant a little! Mercury offered us $8400 less the $550 deductible. Had to prove to them it was an L-tuned. I got a letter from my service guy, found a couple of pictures, and sent them Lexus press release about L-Tuned and pricing. Also found one online for sale a few months ago for $ 1400. Back and forth several times and they finally settled on $11700. Mercury sucks. To sr20mofo, I'm mnot one to take pictures of my cars, but, maybe in future I will. Today I received a toll violation ticket from Metro. These guys were driving around 5days later in the middle of the day!!! Where are the police?

Glad this wound down and you got a fair price for your car. Still hurts to lose them this way.
I wasn't happy with Mercury when I had my collision dealings.

Went through the exact same thing,
my gs400 was stolen from my driveway around the same time,
2 months ago, the car was sold the next day on craigslist someone bought it really cheap, the people that stole it falsified the pink slip, the person who bought the car went to register it to the dmv in san fernando .
He was detained and my car was recovered.

I was told by the detective that lexus are target right now!!!!!
Many lexus have been stolen in the l.a area
he said that they want to make quick money off them so most likely they
dont take these cars apart because the parts wont sell as fast as honda parts
that they are better off sell it fast for $3000

the only thing they did was plasti dip my car black , blacked out the tail lights and plasti dip the rims to make it look different,


just wanted to share this with you, my guess your car is still out there beeing driven

MSGS430, really sorry to know that these bastards are out there.....

STREETGS, that is a *****! Not good to hear they stole your car.
May I ask what area you live in?

My GS400 was badly rear-ended in downtown L.A. and got it towed home. The AAA guy warned me not to leave it anywhere on the street showing the damage as it's a target for thieves to try and rip parts off.

What the detective told me is that they have high-tech equipment ,
a scan tool that by just typing in the vin number the scanner sends a signal to
the car to open and once inside they hook up to the obd 2 connector and can turn your car on without a problem.........

My friends 2013 gs was stolen last week from the mall parking lot..........
He found it that same day only because after my car got stolen he installed
lo-jack in his car.....
