Hey everyone, just picked up my first Lexus personally. So far I love the car, previously I had a 1991 Honda Accord for 6 years that my parents bought back in 91. Big upgrade but I'm glad to be here. Parents own a 01 rx300 and 97 es300 so I've been around the site a little bit.

2001 GS430
117k miles
Black/Black w/ Black Pearl Emblems
16" Chrome OEM Wheels


Car was meticulously taken car of and brought to the Lexus dealership religiously every 5k miles until 80k miles. Lol I thought that was pretty crazy but I'm not complaining. Timing belt was done exactly at 90k miles at JP Importz in Texas and since then oil has been changed every 3,500 miles.

Car is very clean inside and out with a few small dings as expected. The plan is to use this car for daily driving to commute from school and back since I just got into graduate school.


I took off the center cap/emblems to strip the gold plating if anyone was going to comment on that.
