Maybe your gas went bad? How much gas is in the tank? Sounds like engine knock. Also double check oil levels.

I think the grill would only look good on darker colored cars like Black or Dark Cherry which I have seen.
Just spray it with a clearcoat if you want some gloss.

Doubt black on black is the rarest for the final year.
Maybe if you had Black Cherry Pearl, Blue Onyx Pearl or Crystal White on Black interior.

You have a desired color combo though

Had that problem with my old 98 Gs400. Check all the ABS sensors and make sure the sensor tips are clean. Mine had a lump of grease on one of the sensors.

Yep, they always come back. Got out of my E500 Benz after 5 months back in to a Lexus GS430 early this year. The Benz was too scary to own used and without a warranty.

Yes it would be extremely rare to get a 3GS430 for around $15K, but I have seen a few for $16000 with around 80K miles. You flash $15K at a dealer or private sale and they may budge.

It would have to be a Lexus enthusiast that would pay that much. For that price you could get a newer low mileage (50k-80K) GS430 2003-2005 or possibly 2006 GS 430.
