i have a aspen silver lexus gs400 in very good condition and very well taken care of with all but quality parts used. i didn't take the cheap route. i'm very maintenance cautious so no autozone/pepboys/strauss BS crappy products were never used during my ownership of this car.

there is no rust, this is a clean title car.

the car has no mechanical problems, no electrical problems, no oil leaks, no check engine light, i won't hesitate to drive this car cross country. its comfortable, strong, reliable and spacious. the 1uz (toyota's v8 line of motors) are quite strong, potent and durable engines who past 250-300k miles easily. it is low with no tire gap and tucking slight tire up front. the fenders and quarter panels were all professionally shaved no rubbing issues here (i have new inner fender liners not installed) since its on coilovers, you can lower it and raise it to your liking. the car is to test potential trades mainly for b5 s4 (manual), swapped sc's, swapped gc8 (impreza), e36 m3 (manual), wrx, y33/34 infiniti. pretty open to interesting offers, i'm willing to hear some trades but no junk please.

new pics after coming out the body shop 10/24/12, also installed a jvc double din 7" touch screen detachable face unit
