Supplied new by Lexus Manchester to a Manchester based lighting company on 1st September 2002, this LS430 was subsequently sold to on 18th November 2012 to its only private owner; I acquired the car from him in March this year. Although I'm a Mercedes specialist, I'd actually bought this particular gentleman's last Lexus, an LS400 back in 2012 when he'd upgraded to this car, and was absolutely blown away by just how good it was. The LS400 was actually a close contender to the W140 S-Class it went up against, but just not quite as good, however the all new LS430 that came after it, in my opinion, surpassed it's main rival (the Mercedes W220 S-Class) in nearly every respects; the only thing it didn't have was badge heritage.
If you've never owned a Lexus, and you're a petrol head, believe me you're really missing out. These cars are truly a technical Tour de Force, the level of detail and engineering that went into the LS430 is staggering, and it's rumored that Lexus lost money on every LS430 sold, as they wanted to be a serious contender in the luxury car market, occupied and dominated by the likes of Mercedes, BMW, Audi & Jaguar. As such, they had to come up with something rather special, and they sunk a large chunk of Toyota's considerable resources into the development of the LS430. What this means now, a few years on, is these cars are now the bargain of the century, and have to be one of motoring best kept secrets.
The condition of the car is excellent, however with any used car of this age there are a few marks here and there, and it has had paint over the year. There's also a small area of de-lamination on the drivers door window (remember these are double glazed) and there was small area of dulled paint on the bonnet, however this is now virtually undetectable after machine polishing. All things considered though, this is a highly presentable vehicle, which has lovely deep shine, and really does have some presence.
It comes with an excellent service history containing 11 stamps, with a file of invoices to back up the majority of those stamps. Timing belt (aka cam belt) and water pump were replaced at 78,872 miles in 2013, so won't need doing again for a while. Over and above the parking sensor everything works as it should. I have replaced a couple of parking sensors, but it really could do with them all replacing if this feature is import to you.
The drive quality is simply sublime; I've driven lots of different cars over the years, but I put the LS430 up there in the top three; its quiet, smooth, relaxing and quick too. Whats pleasantly suprising is its more economical than you would imagine, and although its no diesel Fiesta, when I collected this car, it averages 30.4mpg on the 85 mile trip home on A-Roads & Dual Carriageways; not at all bad for a 4.3 Litre V8 car that weights over 2 tons!.
So, for the money, I really don't think you'll get so many (working) features in a car on such an impressive car. Most LS430's have done well over 100,000 miles now, in fact I saw one that had done 283,000 miles, which I'm sure its well capable of, however so to find a low mileage, well looked after car like this is quite rare. I know its a cliche, but I will be really quite sad to see it leave me, as I've really enjoyed having it and cruising around it it, especially in the recent hot weather; as the air-conditioning system is truly superb!
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business. To read more, see my website at - details above

Finally, I'm situated in Keighley, West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
