Nice pick up. Very clean and a great price. Is it the CL or UL version?

Very nice, congrats! Seems like a good price. It appears to be a UL too, they didn't even advertise it in the auction.

Not worth it. Better off just replacing an air shock with a good used one when it starts to leak. They don't fail suddenly. Or just convert the suspension when one fails for about $1200. Welcome by the way.

Don't forget about the 90k timing belt / water pump service if it has not already been done.

Ok also I have purchased used lexus gs400 certified before and both times a/c went out luckily I had the warranty, besides air suspension with all the electronics this car has plus pcs cruise if I used the warranty once it would pay for itself plus any inncident thereafter would be a bonus. So worth it or not just chance it?

Aftermarket warranties are really never financially a smart decision. Especially, with the reliability of ls430. The smart plan is to not just drop it off at a dealer if something goes wrong. Find yourself a good local mechanic to maintain your car and use the forums. Paying for labor alone and getting the parts yourself is the best way to keep cost low.

For mechanics. Try using yelp.com Search and look at user reviews.

The big things are the 90k timing belt / water pump service and spark plugs by 120k miles. If not already done, have all the fluids exchanged. Transmission drain and refill, differential, brake, power steering, coolant.
