Picked up a 06 in Dec '18 105k for 11.5 . Very nice in and out. Spent most of its life in Beverly Hills and appears to have had a pampered life. Happy with purchase.

2008 with a little under 88K for $16K plus tax and tags and it puts a giant smile on my face ever time I drive it. The 32 valve V8 is so intoxicating with the way it effortlessly spools up power. Of course your gas mileage may vary as it's just so tempting to occasionally mash the gas pedal.

Congratulation. Not sure how you did it but that's an awesome price for the car.

Congrats and Welcome to the club. Try ECT PWR or S-shift, you will love her even more.

Thanks Dennis!

Funny you should mention the color as today I was at a coffee shop around 4 pm with the sun lower in the sky and it looked amazing. I was not the only one to notice as 2 people in the shop also mentioned how the color sparkled in the sunlight. I'm really lucky because when I first saw it on the web the pictures did not do it justice as it just looked like a dull brown. So glad I went to see in in person and realized how great the car looked in the Tiger Eye Mica and how it was in such great shape. Can't stop smiling.

In the sun it has that Root Beer color not brown. I have had lots of folks say they have never seen a car that color and how nice it looks.

Could have been just the asking price and not the selling price. Now I am getting close to being in position to buy one and I am hoping prices are dropping a little. Anybody else notice price swings by the time of the year....or just an anomaly?

I am looking at cars with less than 60k miles.
Looks like I might be choosing the wrong time to start looking at buying an SC430. I have a ton of Toyota toys, as well as 97 SC400 with 255K, and Datsun 240z. However I would like to get an SC430 for when mommy and daddy go out on the town without the kids. Been seeing some very "questionable" listings online with deep discounts. Crossing my fingers on this purchase, personally not looking to spend to much on the car. Since it will really only be used sparingly throughout the year.

Nice list man I have a 73 240z, 87 Supra (might sell it and get an SC430), 91 MR2, 97 SC400, 15 Tundra

Mine is my daily driver too, to kinda surprises me so many keep theirs for occasional use, upside is if I ever need to get another good ones will probably still be around

Default 2004 purchase

Purchased a 2004 with 13500 miles. Paid top price of $23,500. Had some pin head clear coat damage on hood,top and trunk. Not able to buff out so was refinished. New timing belt because records showed had not been replaced. Belt did show age cracks. Dark forest green and saddle leather. New non flat Michelian pilot tires were on car. Rebuilt speakers . Air bags were replaced year ago. Previous one owner had all Lexus service done. Came with only one key so had another one made.Plans for ceramic coating as finish now flawless. Purchased last updated disc for GPS. Undecided about up dating radio. Considering Kenwood Excelon DNX6965.

Do you have anyway to locate the previous owner?
if you can, I bet they have the extra keys and any missing books, if applicable.
