I completely agree.

This factor sold me on the 05 I bought recently.

The tires are also a huge deal to me. If they are mismatched or some x-brand it says the owner did not take pride in the...

Michelin made a horrible decision to end production of the Pilot Exalto A/S tires. I had a set on my SC and they were silent as well as excellent in the rain. In 2014 I replaced the rear 2 but they...

I'll post some pics soon.

I've driven an LS460 a few times and found it super isolating from the road. Actually, the base LS430 with the 225 17 inch wheels feels like a big boat on the water. ...

If those #3.

Go with a 98+ to get the DIS ignition, updated body parts, more modern shifter, etc.

For the SC400 you definitely want the better 5 speed transmission on 98+. The upgrades...

FS: Tan/Ivory Console Arm Rest
