Hey everyone, long time lurker on the forums, first time poster. I've been looking for an LS since about October and as of yesterday finally found one for a great price. 1995 LS4, 114K miles, Black ext/ tan int, 2 owners, all records since new, always serviced at Lexus, all maintenance done on time. Exterior is a 9/10 (a few clear coat scratches but nothing a little buffing won't fix). Interior 9/10 (just a little wear on the drivers seat but the rest of the interior is flawless). Mechanically is perfect but will need brakes soon. Paid $5700 from a private owner. I will get some pics up as soon as the weather gets a little nicer here.

I bought my 1990 LS400 with 130,000 miles on the odometer for $3,700. It was substantially below book value because the PS pump was about to go. I got that replaced and the car drives like a dream.
I would rate my interior as 9.5/10 and the exterior 8/10 sue to scratches, dings and some white paint under the driver door. I am the second owner of the car too, which is a bonus, and have some maintenance records.

I purchased mine about 1 week ago. I'm the 2nd owner and the 1st owner is my aunt. It was kept in great condition until she started letting her customer and workers drive it.

Anyhow, its a 94' with 192,xxx miles on it. I paid her $2,000 for it since it is not in the best condition that it should be in. It needs a new paint job, interior needs work, etc. But overall, i love the ride so far and its a great car. I'm going to keep the maintenance on it so that it will last me for another 10 years hopefully.

Bought 2/2008 for $3k 186k miles. One owner. All paperwork given. 100% dealership maintenance. Prior to purchase $6k overhaul work done @ dealer (car was going to go to his son out of state). Previous owner was a MD w/ patient was owner of dealership. $3k he paid, $3k donation credit by dealership. Credit written on paperwork.

NO maintenance other then oil changes done since bought. Motor and all components are excellent.

Car has minor body flaws. Interior leather has cracks. Rear seat has a tear. (but i just put some good seat covers over then all)
