My 430 from when I bought it in Florida to when I finally got it up to CT, fully clay barred and sealed the paint, and put 20% tint all around

Heh, "menacing"... where have I heard that before?? Hmmm....

Ahhhh yes, that's right

Thanks!
Here’s some more pics of when I got her. 65k miles! Still had original tags on the seat from Lexus on how to care for the leather. Literally the cleanest 430 I had ever seen, and I'd been searching for almost a year

"Good things come to those who wait..."

Absolute perfection...

One thing that caught my 'Lexus-itis' (The Passionate Pursuit of Perfection virus lol)... it appears that your shift **** is rotated ever so slightly clockwise and is pointing at almost 1 o'clock. This may be something that you adjusted yourself if you prefer how it looks from your viewing angle in the driver's seat, but they're usually pointed directly to the 12 o'clock position... and yes, I know I'm... rhymes with 'veinal' retentive haha

Definitely different. Has to be custom made.

Huh. Definitely custom. Personally, not a fan. Reminds me too much of a Cadillac Deville. If the owner likes it, I guess that's all that really matters... to each his own

Smile Greetings from the Middle East


Hi there,
I am new here this is my first post... my name is Salman and I am from Dubai - United Arab Emirates aka Gulf's Lexus nation. I have recently purchased a 2006 full ultra LS430 imported from South Korea. I was ex S-Class owner and always used German cars ever since I got my driver's license starting from Volkswagen Passat R36, than BMW 530i than Mercedes S350. My first Japanese car is this beauty and I am totally blown away with the drive quality of LS430 it drives better than any German vehicle I ever drove and owned! Before this moment I always underestimated Lexus and thought its just an expensive Toyota but hell no, Lexus is different realm.... specially LS430 is a car that drives better than most modern vehicles, its robust, repair friendly and far less complicated than the Germans is what I learned after owning it for 5 months now... I am loving it to the core and can't ask for anything better.

I do have some plans to accessorize it with body kits, chrome kits, pinstripe it... but not stance it or lower is too much.

Beautiful car! (and background)

So many people don't know about these cars and what they are like. They really are engineering excellence exemplified!

Congrats on the new-ish purchase and welcome to the club. You're among a handful of other members on here that are also in Dubai.

Thanks a lot bro
true that, just recently thought to myself I should have owned it since new what an exceptional vehicle indeed. And now I can hardly imagine driving any other vehicle... cause I feel so comfy driving it. 3UZ engine is of the best v8 engines ever made... gives me 400 plus miles a tank full which is more better mileage than any 6 cylinder even.

cant stop loving her!
