    wow not been on here in a good while, hope everyone is doing ok.
    now onto the ad;
    A very low mileage second generation Lexus LS400 sadly for sale.

    I bought this in march 2020 with the plan to turn it into a VIP show car, but lockdown and other issues have got in the way. The car spent its life in Central London before being passed onto the original owners son, who sold it to a private trader in march 2020 who then sold it to me. It benefits from full service history until 2019, I then serviced it myself when i bought the car at around 54,000 miles, it now sits at just under 61,000. overall, it is in good condition, as you can see from the photos there is absolutely no rust anywhere, but it does suffer from some typical car park dings and scratches expected of a 25 year old car that has spent most of its life in Central London. Unfortunately as can be seen in the photos it is suffering from some laquer peel on the rear quarter panel and rear bumper, as well as a small chip on the front bumper. The interior is in good condition but could do with a good detailing. Everything electrical works faultlessly - electric windows front and rear, electric memory front seats, electric headrest adjuster, electric seatbelt height adjuster, front and rear electric heated seats, even the electric aerial and headlight washers still work.
    I have 2 keys and one remote although it does need a new battery.

    The engine and gearbox are faultless as to be expected, the car shifts through gears perfectly and makes no noises or knocks when going over bumps. the only thing it could do with is a new set of tyres as the ones on it are slightly perished. It had a new alternator fitted in february this year.

    I feel like this car would be suited to a collector who would sort the paint and lock it away in a garage, or someone who had the same plans as me to go ahead and do a full build on the car.

    These cars are getting rare now and starting to pull strong money, especially with mileage as low as this one, as most are now way over the 150-180,000 mile number.

    £4000 but open to offers or part/ex with cash my way. thank you.

    and have you even seen the prices these are starting to go for? just cos you’re not into them don’t mean they’re worth £500
    nice to see this place hasn’t changed

    its not about the price they "go" for, its about the price they SELL for

    hence why i’ve put it up at this price while stating ‘very open to offers’; i’ve not really got anything to price this off - if it was at 150k+ like the rest i’d price it at 2.5-3k like they are.
