Color-matched Lx470 Grill Question


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 2001 LX470. The options listed for the original purchase are pretty standard: Mark Levinson Stereo, Roof Rack, Trailer Hitch, Floor Mats etc. The color combination is Golden Pearl (code 057) with an Ivory interior. The LX was purchased new in South Carolina and has always been in SC and Georgia.

The horizontal bars in the grill in this vehicle is color-matched (Golden Pearl) to the body color. I have seen this effect before I bought this vehicle but it seems that every LX 470 I see now has a black and chrome trimmed grill.

Do you experts know if Lexus shipped some versions of the LX 470 with a color-matched grill or do I have a vehicle that the previous owner "upgraded"? I'm not sure how much I like this look but I know a new grill is probably big $$$. The rest of the vehicle seems to be pure stock with no modifications or "add-ons".

Thanks in advance for any views or information.
