Definitely the 04-06

Not only newer, but far and away the best looking LS430's. I'd rather have a newer car with a few more miles.

Question Upgraded Sub Woofer?

My local audio shop says it would be a waste of money to update the stock sub woofer. My want is for clean detailed bass...not louder "thump thump." His reason is that the stock amp can't push enough...

So many good points.....the real complication is

What to replace it with? I'm not willing to pay the price of a new LS. I did drive a M37/Q70 Infiniti, and I did like it. It had road feel, power, and handled better than the 430, yet not quite a...

Just think...it wasn't that long ago where there was no way for us owners and enthusiasts to communicate unless there was a local club. Now we can ask for advice and opinions across teh country and...

The 3k is what I am assuming for 90k service and tires

I am planning on the 90k service and tires. I don't want to put it off beyond the miles based on age. If I had any mechanical talent/abilities, I would probably be way more inclined to keep, since I...

Thank You

Tiger, I am mechanically challenged. I have found two Lexus techs that work on the side, have a great reputation, and I will be using them. Please tell me what you bought, so I can order the parts....

Question Air Suspension Problems......warranty weird

I have a 2002 LS430 UL, and the car started to sit off square during the warranty period. Seven visits to dealer.....replaced a lot of parts - except for air struts. Went in for the 85k service, and...

What should I pay for the 90k service?

What is the going rate for the 90k service? Should I have the dealer do it, or there is a Lexus service facility here (not authorized) with mostly ex Lexus dealer service guys working there. They...

Don't buy it even if you find it

Don't buy an Ultra. The potential problems with air suspension are daunting. It's never a question of "will it fail," but rather "when." And when it does, the cost is beyond outrageous.

Who care that it looks similar too

All the Audi's look alike now, but that wouldn't stop me from buying an A8...even though from a distance it's hard to tell an A4 from an A8. A8's sell plenty well.

In my opinion the LS460 may have...

Design Flaw

Going from a double pane glass quiet 430 to a wind noise 460....no. Most wind noise comes from the mirrors. Lexus design should have done a better job....design a quiet engine, and then let wind...

Stick to the Non L....here's why

If you get an L, it comes with air suspension. Even on a Lexus, air suspension eventually breaks, and when it does, it is extremely expensive. Also, with air suspension there is a lot to...
