Very clean. You seem to take good care of the car. Congrats again on the longevity of the 2GS and the ownership of the 3GS.

Let's see how long it takes for the 3GS to catch up in miles.

Are the transmission and the brake master cylinder original? Amazing condition for that mileage - a credit to your ownership - and to Lexus build quality.

Default Quick Question

Did you replace the water pump at the 90K intervals when you did the timing belt? Or is the pump still original as well?

I've got the 90K service coming up and am trying to determine what's preventative maintenance vs. throwing good money against good parts.

Great condition!

Thanks,
Eric

so what do you do that makes you put that many miles on the cars? The ES had almost 200k when you traded it for the GS... now the GS has 318k. What kind of driving are you doing????

WOW over 300k, does it burn oil, how often do you change the oil and what kind do you use, have you switched to a heavier weight.

Im impressed, what kind of maintenance schedule do you perform to the car with putting that many miles on it, any out of the ordinary parts that needed to be changed.

The drivers seat and floor looks so clean, nice car once again

edit: read the other thread, all dealer recommended service

car looks awesome not worth anything, 20 bucks, 200 bucks maybe a 1000, really depends who you sell it to, with over 300k it could comtinue to be an excellent vehicle or take a turn for the worse and start to need costly repairs

Your car is a credit to the line, and you personally that it has been cared for in such a way that if you didn't look at the odometer, you would have no clue that it had that many miles on it.

I'm sure there are a number of us who would like to know the service history. Oil brand and change interval, have you had the valves adjusted, were the rod bearings replaced? What have you had to do to the car to keep it in such pristine shape?
Thanks
Bill
