It's a shame they never made an estate version of the 400. That would be a beast and I'd have one!  :y

So would I. LS400 is like an Omega, just with a bit more of everything. Except for all the niggling characteristics that we put up with.

I bought it from the original owner. He paid 35K ish for it in 1999, so it cost him 2.5K a year in depreciation.  :o
He told me that he fully intended to keep it until he died, but they'd taken his licence off him at 75 because he kept crashing into things, and couldn't stand to see it rot away from disuse. - no-one in his family wanted it.

I think it'll outlast me, let alone him! I'm  going to get the dents taken out in the new year, and use it as a second ca, unless I get an LPG LS400, in which case, I'll consider selling it. (or not!)

Hello everybody! Hope everyone is well?


Long time no see.

Thought, since I was passing, I would update the thread on my lexus...

I'm afraid I treated her badly.
She was stood two years due to my illness and breaking up from mrs egg.
Bought her from exmrsEgg for 200
Changed the battery (it wouldn't hold a charge) and pumped the tyres.
Drove her to the MOT station to see if she was worth fixing.
She only passed, no advisories!

I then did a 750 mile round trip to Ben Nevis - literally straight from MOT station to petrol station then on A1 north.

Never missed a beat, and she's done another 18 months and another MOT (no advisories) STILL without any work being done.

LOVE my lexus!
Still boring AF tho - and miss my MV6   :'(
