How would I check that? My power steering and high pressure line ARE both leaking, BTW, if that makes any difference.
Your blowing smoke when you start her up because your power steering is bad. If your leaking oil from the head you would notice it when you look at the motor..you would be loosing compression. The power steering is a simple fix depending on how bad yours is. I would look up neo's power steering how to. I just did mine cause it was blowing insane amounts of smoke at start up and sounded like pig getting chased or somthing. Anyways plug the the pump and clean the sensor behind the driver wheel. I did both and man it made a hell of differrence, my car drives sickly smooth and no more smoke no more leak. Power steering fluid should be red/violet, oil is obviously dark brown or black. Ebay sells some nice seat covers for our car that are pvs leather, i bought some for my sisters sc300 and they look stock and fit like a tight glove http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LEXUS...Q5fAccessories
you can get them 2 toned or just black or whatever color , plus they also sale the arm rest for 15 bucks...the material is durable and thick...good for the price IMO.

I never got mine filled in either...so instead of paying to have it repainted, I opted to buy a new TOYOTA script badge from a Hilux (since it's the longest one I could find) and used that on the left side. Yeah it's not factory, but neither are the wheels, suspension, audio, etc haha. Though I would think the holes are less noticeable on a black car.
Also, is your T logo on the back from an actual Celsior, or did you just put a random Toyota one on? Mine was from an '06 Avalon.
We finally had a decent day here in Oklahoma on Saturday, so I spent some time cleaning up my wife's LS-400. It's a stock car - sorry folks it's her car and she won't let me lower it and put on some cool rims and tires But she does let me do all the basic maintenance on the car.
A thousand miles or so ago I put new Dunlop Signature series tires on her car and I have been very pleased with the ride and low noise levels.
Oh yeah! I found the posts where he talked about the damage:
