Upgrade to a Lexus knob with wood on it. I think they interchange with a lot of Toyota and Lexus models that don't have a button on the shifter.

Yep, I had the same issue, a worn link caused annoying clunking over bumps. Replacing it is fairly simple if things aren't too rusty.

I have the same question as you, because I'm thinking of an 07-08 RX myself.

I couldn't agree more. The tranny was the #1 reason I let go of my ES330, otherwise it was a fantastic car. You can't find this level of quality and reliability in cars these days, even the latest ES...

Not bad. I'm surprised the VHT nightshades came out that shiny, usually anything sprayed has a matte look to it.
I personally still prefer the look of 05-06 ES330 tail lights.

+1, junkyard cars are in much better shape.

This would only be good as a parts car if you had another ES300. For that I'd pay maximum $150.

It seems like cars are cheaper up here in Canada....

I personally don't like them, you should upgrade to the OEM 2005-06 lights instead.

Since the ES330 has ABS you should drive around a bit, engage the ABS, and rebleed to get all the air out of the system.

I'm looking at the 5ES myself, I drove a 2007 yesterday.

The roof line is very swoopy, which means a short window glass height, a high dashboard a limited visibility compared to the 4ES I had.

Anything from 4ES and 5ES (with a 50mm offset, 7" wide) will require a small 3-5mm spacer in the rear to clear 215mm wide tires from rubbing the struts.
