  1. Does anyone know if the land cruiser mufflers are the same part number as the LX470's or are they cross functional? Can i put a Land Cruiser muffler on a LX470?
  2. has anyone ever used a Bosal muffler? I would rather not spend the $300 for the muffler if I dont have to. After all it is just a muffler, right?
  3. Bosal Muffler is this what you are talking about? Or this? Cheap Toyota Parts
  4. I need a new muffler for my LX470. The stock one under the passenger rear seat (the rear muffler) has a small rust hole in it and it stinks and it is rattling too. So I want one that is going to be as quite as the factory one. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance :D
  5. Thanks now I am interested in HIR bulbs. Who out there is using HIR bulbs? Give me some feedback please. I dont really want to spend the money and time trimming the house of the bulb if I am not going to get a better looking and brighter bulb then the HELLA's I already have.
  6. BBPeik, I have the same sound in my '00 LX470. It started about 7 months ago and is still there. Dealer said same thing, now I am not a Certified mechanic, but I have been a Gearhead for some time. I almost thought that mine was coming from the drivetrain/tranny. It is still there today I just dont take off as fast. Does anyone else have this issue?
  7. In the Lexus paint process..... panels do not fade.... Your Lexus has been repainted so where down the line. Bill I dont understand what you are saying Bill? Are you saying that the paint on Lexus panels dont fade? If that is so I dont believe it. There is no difference between the paint on the panels as the paint on the roof. And both of mine are faded. And I dont believe that my Lexus has been repainted I am the second owner and I have seen the whole dealer service record.
  8. So here is my problem today while out in town my wife gets out of the rear passenger side of our 2000 LX 470 and then there is a loud "POP"................... The check to the door has broke free from the door. It looks like someone just ripped the check right out of the door. There is two bolts & nuts that hold the check to inside of the door, behind the door panel, are still bolted to the eye laces that they are suppose to be bolted to. The problem is that eye laces are to longer attached to the door. They are attached to the check which is no longer attached to the door. I need to get the door check out so it doesn't cause any more damage inside of the door. I have removed the two bolts under the door panel and the four plastic screw clips (two on the left and two on the right), and the screw behind the inside door handle. But the door seems like it is stuck on the top of the panel. Do you need a machine to remove and reinstall the door panel? Does the window need to be down in order to remove the door panel? I have a picture of how to remove the front door but couldn't find one of the rear doors. I have pictures that I will post later, just wanted to get this posted ASAP.
  9. $25 per bulb? $50 a pair right? that is the same price as in the store. Or are you talking $25 a per? Can you post the link?
  10. So you just went thru your local dealer? You did not go thru 800 Lexus service number? I will be calling my dealer on Mon
  11. A Marine's Christmas 'Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone, In a one bedroom house made of plaster and stone. I had come down the chimney with presents to give, And had to see just who in this home did live. I looked all about, a strange sight I did see, No tinsel, No Presents, Not even a tree. No stocking by the mantle, just boots full of sand. On the wall hung pictures, of a distant land. With Medals and Badges, Awards of all kinds, A sober thought, came to mind. For this house was different, it was dark and dreary, I found the home of a Marine, Once I could see clearly. The Marine lay sleeping, silent, alone, Curled up on the floor, In his one bedroom home. The face was so gentle, The room in such disorder, Not how I pictured, A United States Marine. Was this the hero of whom I'd just read? Curled up on a poncho, The floor for a bed? I realized the families that I saw this night, Owed their lives to these Marines, Who where willing to fight. Soon around the world, children would play, And grownups would celebrate, a bright Christmas day. They enjoyed Freedom, each month of the year, Because of these Marines, like the one lying here. I couldn't help wonder, how many lay alone, On a cold Christmas Eve, In a land Far from home. The very thought, brought a tear to my eye. I dropped to my knees and started to cry. The soldier awakened, and I heard a rough voice, "Santa don't cry, this life is my choice; I fight for Freedom, I don't ask for more, My life is my God, My Country, My Corps." The Marine rolled over, and soon drifted to sleep. I couldn't control it, I continued to weep. I kept watch for hours, So silent and still And we both shivered from the cold night's chill. I didn't want to leave on that cold, dark night, This Guardian of Honor, so willing to fight. Then the Marine rolled over, with a voice soft and pure, Whispered, "Carry on Santa. It's Christmas Day, All is Secure." One look at my watch, and I knew he was right. Merry Christmas my friend, And to all a good night. "Semper Fi" All my brothers and sister in the corps
  12. I usually keep a/c on & it cycles like you said. I take it that no one else is having this problem?
  13. ED. I would jump on it. NicLX470 is right its a steal. I would go to the dealer and have then pull a service history on it. That should tell you what and when everything was done to it. Check for a service history. I bought my LX used from a dealer and it was a one time owner with a perfect service history. That pays off in the long run. As far as gas mileage it isnt going to matter how many mileage its got on it bro its going to get around 15 city/highway. If you dont decided to get it let me know because I would be interested in looking at it. Good Luck!!!!
