1997 Lexus LS 400 (MOT April 2021) For Sale

1997 Lexus LS 400 (MOT April 2021)

I bought the car in February as it has always been my intention to own one and now I have had my use out of it and moved onto the next car. I am a habitual car buyer with the usual process of buying a car I like, attending to its issues past a point of recovering my full investment and then moving onto the next! (BMW Z4 which I am already considering selling) The way I look at it, the money I am losing should hopefully be no more than a years’ worth of season tickets, football shirts and travel to and from games. (That is what I keep telling myself anyway!).

The car has a good amount of history, 2 sets of keys (including 2 fobs), everything works other than the issues below, touch screen Pioneer Stereo including Bluetooth/ Aux/ USB Connectivity/ Hand free phone Connectivity and Sub Woofer in the parcel shelf which is not really my taste but I believe it is worth £150 or so (No cutting has been carried out to install it by previous owner/ See photo showing double sided tape holding parcel shelf in place).

When I bought the car, I did not see any major issues with it but I always find something to waste money on so I fitted it with a new set of 4 tyres and then I valeted it and used it until April when the MOT was due. If you check the MOT history, you will see it failed on one of the new tyres so I bought 2 replacement tyres so now all are matching including the spare.

Once I got the car back from the MOT station, I saw the advisories and set too it (plus other works) which included the following works in April / March

·  Transmission Fluid and Filter / Cabin Filter / Air Filter / Oil and Oil Filter
·  Both front track control arms replaced
·  Both front lower ball joint replaced
·  Both front Struts replaced
·  Front Discs replaced
·  Rear Discs and Pads replaced
·  Rear Shocks and Springs replaced
·  New Wiper Blades
·  Air Con Regas
·  Wheel Alignment
·  New Boot Rubber Seal / New Car Mats
·  2 New Brake Disc Shields (I had to get them from Lexus)

As you can see from above, the car is mechanically healthy and it drives as it should but obviously with being 23 years old, it does have its odd battle scar so I will list the items that stand out to me and happy to answer any questions or provide more photos:

·  Drivers Heated Seat not working
·  Lacquer peel on the roof
·  Odd rust bubble
·  Inside of rear passengers door rusted but can not see anything externally
·  Slight wear to drivers seat base
Electric aerial not wired up

I hope the description is reflective of the condition as I have tried my best but the car gets admiring looks, reliable and just a pleasure to drive with cheap parts still available from breakers. I feel I will regret this sale as my friends are telling me not to sell it but who ever listens to advice until it is too late! Cheers Mike the details below)
