Default Sales brochures...

Anyone have any sales brochures for their LS? I just bought https://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-Lexus-...53.m2749.l2649 and it is pretty cool. Some cool information, paint samples, options explained, etc. Was hoping it would have more information on the Sport Suspension... it simply refers to it as 'European-tuned Sport Suspension' without going into specific.

Still, a cool way to spend $20.

Yep that is a good seller, I bought it last year when it was $12. I also got the original LS/ES brochure from 1989, and a 1998 full line brochure as well. It's a shame, I used to collect that stuff and would have had some very interesting brochures seeing as I started at about 10 y.o. My mom threw them all away....

I picked up a 2005 LS brochure for around the same money. It's nice to look at as a reference. Like John, I've been hitting the auto shows for years and have kept most of what I collected. It gotten to a point where I have 3 boxes of brochures sitting on a shelf in the basement and now what do I do with it all? I could put the stuff on eBay, but it would take time to list them and many would not get bid on (2001 Sienna Brochure comes to mind...)
Never-the-less, it's fun to collect em...
I have all the Scion stuff that was offered over the years, including the Swag and the miniature cardboard cutout cars that were offered. Neat stuff...

I love collecting brochures!!

Also purchased the one you have, probably from the same sell as he had a few.

I've tapered off buying any of them lately, because I'm having a hard time remembering what I have... I really need to find some sort of cabinet so I can catalog them.

Anyone know where I can get an original brochure for a 2001 LS430? I'd pay $20 in a heartbeat for that lovely brochure! Thanks all.

On second thought. I have no use for the brochure. I'm loaded myself almost every Infiniti G35 + brochure from 2003+... What good does it do me? They are!!!!! New and I'm not asking to sell them so it's a matter of keeping junk and try to sell it. I have tons of junk/valuable car stuff for the right person.

That's the key! I used to own a 1993 NIssan Maxima SE 5spd. Loved that car. When I was done with it I passed it on to one daughter then the next daughter but when it got to my son, well, let's just say he killed it. I still have the FSM for it. It's in great shape and I just can't bring myself to throw it away. I know there's someone out there that needs this book, just can't find him. I've put it on CL a couple times. Never tried Ebay since it costs money to do so. May give it a shot. I'd give it to someone if they needed it.

John still has his Maxima, maybe he could use it?? How much of a difference is there between a 1993 and 1997 model? I still have the FSM for my 300ZX (sold the car in 2007) Why am I keeping it? I guess it's like a picture of an old girlfriend.....

haha there is a debate as to which was the best, many would say 4th gen which is 1995 to 1999, many would say 3rd gen which is 1989 to 1994. But noteworthy is both could have 190 HP which was a lot back then, and that the 3rd gen had an independent rear whereas mine has a live axle.

There was someone who I am guessing was a disgruntled Nissan employee who allowed the download of every Nissan FSM in pdf format, and I grabbed them all. I can't remember at this time which laptop that would have been on. He got shut down in about 2 weeks, but it was amazing. I even got them for the Infiniti G35 (2007)....
