Hello fellow CL Members,
I just want to say the amount of information shared on this forum about the GS is amazing. Any problems I've ran into so far this forum has the answers to it. I am also an admin for a Taiwan FB group and have shared plenty of DIY information from here. Gotta thank the contributors over the years on this forum for sharing the knowledge.
I've been a member on here for over a year but haven't done much to my GS until the last few months due to maintenance work that had to be done first. Sourcing parts isn't that cheap here as there is a premium with any OEM Lexus brand on it. I can say the good thing about being in Taiwan is that labor is cheaper and plenty of electrical parts for me to source from. Just want to share my 99 GS 300 build thus far with about 105,000 miles.
