Your are a brave man TFB. That's awesome that you are at nearly 400,000 miles. The 400 and the 430 are in my opinion the most reliable cars ever made. I assume you do tons of highway miles, which is...

Great post Jainla. Thanks for sharing your insight. The turning radius on the 430 is really fantastic. I think this is what makes it so easy to park. You know what's crazy. Lexus says its normal for...

As I mentioned, it is what I am personally comfortable with. The higher the metal content the more an engine will wear. Will there be catastrophic damage at a 10K oci? No. Will the engine wear...

Oxidation happens no matter what. Just the natural world we live in. What the rate is depends on many factors.

Some engines are easier then others to work on. Can't blame the car for breaking itself. I also assume you mean the MAF sensor and not the MAP sensor. MAP sensor monitors the manifold pressure....

Freon does not wear out. What causes the AC to loose its cooling affect is either failing components or freon leaking out of the system. Also, if there was any problems with enabling this I am sure...

04's have a few little growing pains. With all thing being equal, which they never are, I would look for 05-06 but don't rule out 04. Just a few more issues with the audio system like the sub and...

For $16 don't know how their making any money off them. Do they only cost $3 to make? Also, even though they have a Lexus part sticker are we at a conclusion that these are not oem mats right?

You are probably driving it more aggressive as you are used to the car. Slow down and get better mileage.

I would monitor the oil condition. If the oil is black with carbon then change it sooner then later. Personally, 7500 on full synthetic all I like to do considering the filter as well.
