Default So I found a really cheap vendor for the LS460/600 Data System... thoughts?

http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/creer/item/asc680l/

UPDATE 2**********

I think they stopped selling... =(
Sorry guys.

The price is so Cheap! at $434.87. but I'd have to buy the harness seperately, but it's only $177 dollars for the harness. Making the whole set to be about $612. And i know that rakuten is like the japanese version of Amazon. Ebay has the cheapest set for about $875.... prestigious society is about $1k......I wont understand the manual, but im pretty sure the install is plug and play. Also, there's already a thread to adjust these controllers in English. To buy or not to buy? what do you think?


UPDATE 1***********

so i decided to buy the set. Total comes out to be:

ASC680L Module: $434.87
H-087G Harness: $177.26
Shipping, Processing, Custom fees: $ 78.44
Total: $690.57

Ehh in the end it's still a bit cheaper ($185-300) cheaper than any US retailers. I'll update more once i get the product.

UPDATE 2***********
LOOK AT WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY!!!! the shipping was really quick BUT it stayed in US Customs for 5 days.... other wise it wudve been around 1 week. BUt it turned out to be TWO weeks, thanks to the slow usps customs. so they're not lying after all!!! The only thing when buying from that vendor is that i had to use google translate quite a bit hahah. They have an english speaker... but I can hardly understand some of the stuff he says, but he was really nice and responsive.

I seen that on rakuten recently too and been trying to decide if it's smart to buy from them, I admit it's a great price but not sure how much shipping and duties would be, let us know how things go

I just ordered a set, but the order wont be charged until they get back with me about the shipping probably tomorrow. According to the shipping guide, it should be somewhere around $50 for shipping. Will keep you guys posted on what happens. If everything checks out fine, this would be a good deal for the LS community

Thats a good price for new. The instructions in english are all in the LS460 FAQ sticky under the Data systems thread...

For lexus LS models that has the Air suspension - the data system controller lets you control the air pressure so you can lower/raise your car on demand. Everyone that uses a data system controller, they will probably use it to lower their car to a desired height without going aftermarket with coilovers or air bag system. Because after all, who wants to drive a monster truck LS? hehe
