Yeah there's only a couple of 01+ GS430's in Canada. One's in Saskatoon a gold one at $12.5K but there's this one too. Know anyone in Ontario?

Nice, identical to the one I am looking at, with almost 30 000 more miles. Good reference point for pricing though.

Just how rare are the blue GS430?? Seems like Silver and Black (and green) for that matter are the ones that popup more frequently.

Gold, silver and black are more common. That blue is a rare color for sure. I haven't seen any of those on trader ever.

So I got to see the 96k mile black on black on person. Turns out he's only 1 mile away from my work.

Looks nice but a couple things.
1. Hasn't had the 100k service done.
2. Tires are in Ok shape but about half worn. Stock rims are Ok but a bit scruffy.

I now see that there is a 2003 gs430 with 89k miles with all preventative maintenance done on it. 100k is already done. 4 window actuators done. Trailing arms and several other big items done. Rca bushings to lower about 1.5 inches and spacer to flush up the tires with body. Brand new continental dws tires. Black exterior with tan interior. Price is at 10900. This cars record shows that it spent most of its life in Texas and Las Vegas Nevada. Guy is selling cause wife wants suv for coming baby.

Thoughts?

If it was me I would look at it, drive it, verify the maintenance, offer him around $9500, $10k best and final offer. Good luck!

edit: for the 2003 GS430 with 89K

Yeah, for the Black/Tan 03, the Autocheck reports more info than the Lexus owners page. (only 13 entries).

On the 01 there are 9 pages of Lexus owner page info.

On the other hand its newer, less miles, and a verified southern car....
