I can speak on our 2008 LX570. We acquired it new as a lease, but after the lease ended, we liked it so much we decided to purchase it rather than returning or swapping for a new one. It currently...

We have 120k miles on our '08. We are the original owners. I actually leased originally it but it was in such good shape at lease-end and the residual was a fraction of its value at the time so we...

Do you have pics of the Coopers on your LX? That's another option I'm considering, though I have my eye on the Toyo Open Country AT2 in 285/55/20, which is what prompted me to start the thread.

Thanks for the reply. Is there any noticeable difference in shift points? Did you recalibrate your gps and does that affect the speedometer readings, etc?

Yes, Enkei stuff goes through all the testing, etc.

Funny enough, it doesn't look that good to me in the pics either but in person it looks pretty tough. It also makes the tires look alot wider.

New shoes for the LX570: Enkei ST6

Over over 6-years of service and as the main familiy hauler, it was time to treat the LX570 to some jewelry. Add to this that the wife now has an M-B GL63 AMG I am now free to make mods.
I was not...

We have 107k miles on our '08. No issues and runs as good as new. We have been religious with maintenance, which probably helped, though.

I can't justify trading our '08 for a '13, so I'd like to know if the lights can be adapted to fit the older model. I'd do it in a heartbeat if so.

I can do without the vents on the sides, but I like it. What I find interesting is that in the US nobody ever fixes up the LX570 yet it seems to be very popular with Russians.

Given their current situation, I highly doubt Toyota/Lexus will have spent the resources to upgrade/update their lowest volume vehicle after the LF-A.
