Default Blk on Blk 99 GS400

I couldn't stay away...I just bought another Lexus. I was working at a Lexus dealership when these came out.

The previous owner has kept this car in impeccable condition. It has always been serviced at Park Place and Sewell Lexus.

Has 110k miles, and it's had 4 transmission and differential flushes..

It has the Nakamichi, Hid and yellow fogs which is awesome, because it's exactly what I wanted.

Simple plans-

1. 20mm HR spacers ordered for the rear already...hate that extreme sunk rear wheel backspacing
2. Have my friend buff the paint to perfection
3. tint
4. mild drop on NF210/Kyb
5. Viper alarm with remote start
6. Exhaust

This car is exactly what we needed and I'm very happy with it. I looked at quite a few and drove to Dallas and Houston to look at some, but none were in the ballpark with this one in terms of condition.

I liked the Supra, and put a rediculous amount of hours of labor into the car, but we needed a 4 door.

It's got some swirls in the clear that can be removed with a proper buffing. I'll post pics after he buffs it out!

Thanks! Wish I could say it was flawless, but it's gonna take a bit of work to get close. Back in 98' when I was delivering parts at Lexus of Austin I never thought I'd be able to own a GS400. Wasn't even on my radar at that time.
