I later added the chrome wheels and the gold package.
That's all the mods. The LX came fully loaded, so not much more to add. My wife calls the ride "like first class seating on Lufthansa"!

Sorry about the late response. I don't log on much!

I had it done at Sound Innovations in Hayward http://www.soundinnovations.com/

They did a top notch job. They fabricated a custom bezel to go around the headunit, and finished in in a way that it looks totally integrated (like it's right out of the factory!). When I get a chance I'll post a better pic (just got myself a Canon Digital Rebel 350D.

Yes, there are still some leftover TRD kits for the LX/LC avail. I have one of those kits and plan to install this month. Use the search, there are a few members with the TRD kit.

New owner here

2003 LX470 (hers) but its my money
Sand Dollar Pearl/tan
XM, RES DVD system.
Looking to install HID (love it on my LS, gotta have it on the LX)


Can the dealer install a rear spoiler or better to get it done from a non-Lexus shop ? Love the spoiler on the LX. I think it makes it look even more awesome

Traded the "99 river rock green lx470 for a '03 pearl white lx470. The trans on the '99 was going and I wanted the infrared hud because I live in deer country. It works! I am surprised at the desire for more power in the newer lx's. The '99 wasn't slow and the '03 seems to have plenty of get up and go (for a truck). I live at 6500 feet so I'm down around 20% hp from you sea level guys. Yes I'm a geezer but I do drive an "87 carrera 3.2 so I do have some appreciation for fast cars.

I agree the pick-up is more than adequate when there is no towing involved. My disappointment comes about when I try to just maintain a steady speed on an uphill grade while towing (granted it is at least 5000 lbs extra back there). If the grade is more than a degree or two the cruise control hits WOT and downshifts (sometimes 2 gears down) just trying to maintain 60 MPH. That or when merging onto the freeway are the times I wish it had more power for acceleration.

Detmich1, I understand the issue with towing, picked up a horse in Missouri and delivered some Alpacas to Oklahoma. Gas mileage was 9-10 mpg and power was challenged (this was the '99). Since then we bought a '04 F350 6 liter turbocharged diesel for the horse trailer and the stock trailer. Haven't towed more than 6-7 tons but it seems to not notice the weight. Of course diesel mileage is impacted.

Yep, its the horses that result in exposing the power deficiency. The trailer , an extra tall extra wide two horse straight load Sundowner with a changing room, is no problem even when loaded with all the tack. But when I add in the last 2500 lbs (two horses) then I really notice the lack of acceleration. Wtih the full load, mileage is about 10 MPG at best. Without the trailer, going over simillar routes I have managed 16-17 MPG on the highway.
