I know this will probably get relocated or something to a different thread,
anyway, I just made my account today, and I bought a 1999 LS400 with 160,000 miles on it about 2 months ago. It just passed 162,000 a few days ago, and it's fantastic! Of course it is not perfect but for a 15 year old car, that's not a ton of miles, and it drives like a car with a lot less on it.
What are some beginning modifications I can consider? and where would a good place to buy parts be?

Anyways. These cars are so beautiful inside and out they don't need a whole lot of modification. So there aren't a ton of starter mods that I am aware of. So most people I know with any gen LS400 start off with a nice set of wheels and then go with a drop after that. Whether you go with a moderate drop or want to slam the car on coilovers or air suspension is up to you.
