1993 Lexus GS300 "Beautiful and Mint Condition

I have for sale a "fine and mint" example of a 1993 Lexus GS300. This car has been garage kept all it's life and has extensive service records. Major services have been completed including replacement of serpentine belt, timing belt, steering pump, transmission and brake fluid flush, oil changes every 3k miles, 4 wheel alignment, etc... The car has a very low 145k "babied" miles, that's approx. 9,600 miles per year. Adult driven and never abused. CLEAN TITLE.

The exterior is a 9 out of 10 (minor scuffs/dings) and the interior (no rips and clean) an 8 out of 10 (considering its a 15 yr old car). I am very meticulous with my cars and it took me months to find this car. Unfortunately, my job now requires me to drive a lot thus the need for a more economical car (30+ MPG) is required. If you have a 2001-2002 Toyota Corolla S (5spd)I will consider a trade.

Below are the pictures of the car. Please contact me if you would like to see the car in person. I'm located in NorCal. Asking $5300/obo. Thank you for looking.

Here is something I have not seen on the club before, a well looked after older GS300. This is something that one hopes to find but they are more rare than one would think. At $5,300 or best offer this has some attraction. It has low per year mileage use, well looked after by the owners, Lexus quality. I see this as good value and worth offering $500 less than asking.

Club Lexus ad is here.

This car has been for sale since Jan.25/08 and has just recently been brought back to life for sale on Club Lexus. I have done a bit of research on the model and it is quite a rare model with the colour combination of blue/black and no moon roof. Only a few hundred were produced and of that only a few with this colour. The seller has reduced the price to $11k and that seems to be a good value. I will be watching this one.

1999 L-Tuned Lexus GS300 in Alabama - Great Condition - $9000 OBO

Price Drop: $8500.00 or best offer

I'm selling my Silver 1999 Lexus GS300 that is in great condition. It has 175,080 highway miles and still runs perfect -- I used to make trips from Washington DC (where I used to work) to Alabama every so often to visit family. Modifications include:

* RMM Grille
* OEM Factory Spoiler
* L-Tuned Exhaust
* L-Tuned Side Skirts
* L-Tuned Steering ECU
* TSA Rear STB
* 35% Tint All Around
* Philips 6000k Ultinon HID Kit
* Clear Side Markers
* PIAA White LED's
* Yellow Fogs
* Fog Mod
* Chrome Shifter Bezel
* L-Tuned Badging

This car has been in no accidents and has a clean record. Oil changes were done routinely every three thousand miles. The 100k mile service was performed as well. The brake pads, water pump, timing belt, and spark plugs have been just recently been replaced. The interior and exterior are also in great shape. Tires are in great condition and have 80% of their tread left.

There are minor bumps and dings, but they are barely noticeable. Some of the lights on the stereo have been burnt out. Also, the center console cigarette lighter is not functioning. Only a fuse needs to be replaced to fix this.

This is a great car and I'm sad that I have to let it go.

Find ad here.

Well what do you think of this great looking car? The mileage is high but to purchase this as a second car it has some attractiveness, the car is very clean and has plenty cosmetic add-ons to present a very solid, cool looking car. It also seems to be well cared for over the years. Even after the price drop he is still asking for best offer, the ad was placed just 5 days ago and already the owner is dropping the price. The posts to the ad are 9, 6 of them are the owners, with 450 ad views. One more positive and that is the owner has been a longtime member in good standing. This looks good.

Socal: '98 SC300 Platinum Metallic / Blk leather 128k mi

Hey everyone I'm selling my 98 SC300 platinum metallic on black leather. It has a CLEAN title and has never been in an accident. I'm the second owner who purchased it from an elderly lady who took excellent care of it.
The car has been maintained since day one at Longo Lexus with records to prove it including the timing belt & water pump. It currently has 128M and doesn't have a single problem. The paint is shiny and in very good shape with the exception of a few scratches here and there. The body has a few dings and a small dent near the gas door (hardly noticeable due to the paint color). The interior is also in great shape. The black leather has normal wear for a 10yr old car with no rips. I swear blk leather SC's have a waaay more luxorious feel.
The sound system has been upgraded with Diamond Audio 4" Hex series components with silk tweeters. I removed the stock sub and installed a custom 10" box but is not currently hooked up. Suspension & handling is a great deal to me so I replaced ALL control arm bushings with the expensive Vlamos VFT (best bushings money can buy). That's 16 bushings total! Also changed out the steering rack bushings with Vlamos as well. The old shocks were replaced with brand new OEM's with original springs. And Daizen front & rear swaybars finish it off. All suspension upgrades have less than 5000miles. Tires are Toyo proxes with good tread left. That's all I can think of for now but will add anything I forgot.
My asking price is $8,800 or best offer. I'm located in Socal 562 area. Thanks for looking.

See ad here.

After looking at the SC300 in Vegas I am now an expert in Sc's, well maybe not quite yet. This SC has some good value. It is a '98 with all of the SC additions on it, it has 128k miles a reasonable amount, the after market stuff placed on it is impressive as it is a completely refurbished suspension system. The present owner is the second one which is good considering the car is 10 years old. Now if it is a non-smoking car then all the better.

Back again

It has been a while since I have posted, obviously. I have been watching the different boards and ads so I will post what I have found tonight. Oh, I went down to Las Vegas two weeks ago to look at an SC300 being sold by Andy from Club Lexus, see the car here. The car was in great condition with only two points against it; it had over 300k km. and it was a smokers car. I was willing to buy it with the high miles but not the smoking part. I looked at it on the 10th of April and I see it is still for sale today.
There is still great value in the Lexus market and as I see it the value is growing every month. One of the main reasons is the market for car sales and how slow it is, something about credit. Another other is the high gas prices and the concern around fuel economy. It is a great time to buy a Lexus.

LS430 '01

Now here is a car that I have seen on Club Lexus and have talked with the owner about and think is a great value and a wonderful car to have. It is only a co-incidence that it is the same model as the modded cars in the last post, really.

Unique LS430's

Here are some great samples of what one can do with their Lexus ride if it happens to be an LS430. Just a little Lexus eye candy.
