Hi everyone,

I am soon to be the proud owner of a 1995 LS400 (UCF20). Completely standard vehicle that I am purchasing from a friend (a Lexus enthusiast). This vehicle has 191,000k, complete Lexus Service history, immaculate condition, 2 owners (my mate and his brother before him). Initial price tag $152,000.

Just about to test drive the car for a week before I make final decision, but as far as I'm concerned it's a done deal. I drove this car once and my mind was made up.

The colour is 'Deep Jewel Green Pearl' as indicated by the following Toyota Colour chart - http://www.toyotaref....com/lexusls#LS. Hoping that my mate still has the number plates in storage - 1LS-400 to go on this puppy.

Here is what this car looks like (but not the actual vehicle);

Here are my plans for this car;

Very simple mods that include the following;

- New 18" CSA Vanquish Shadow wheels with 235/40/18 tyres (tbd)

- Replace front indicator lenses with Japanese clear lenses

- Minor suspension lowering (any assistance for best method is greatly appreciated)

Will post real pics during the test period next week. Would like to hear from other Mk III owners especially those located within driving distance from Illawarra, NSW area (Shellharbour).

Cheers,

Paul (1LS400)

Hi there, thought I'd post an update since acquiring my 1995 LS400 (UCF20R) in Feb last year (wow, nearly 12 mths). The car has been great and I have done approx 13,000kms.

After many months of searching for a nice set of wheels, the original CSA Vanquish were removed from production and I found it quite difficut find a wheel that I liked to get over those massive front calipers. In the end I purchased a set of 18" Lenso D1-R's. Easy to clean and the tyres protect these rims quite well.

I also replaced the front blinker lenses with some clear lenses I acquired from eBay and that's about it. Here is a before shot of the actual vehicle:

After shot with new wheels and blinker lenses:
