  1. Try lextasy....that is where I got mine...install was four bolts and took about 45 minutes....you can always take it to a dealer and they will do for ~$100....
  2. Most places will give you the option to put nothing down...however, you need to remember that you will be upside down on this loan (meaning you owe more than it is worth) throughout most of the life of the loan (assuming 72 month tenor)... There is nothing wrong with this, but some lenders will require gap insurance (insuring the difference between the loan value and the value of the car) which will add to financing costs. In addition, if you are going to be upside down you will want to hold onto the car for at least 5 yrs (so that you will at least be at breakeven)...given that this is a Lexus forum, we all love the cars, so keeping it 5+ years is not really a problem... :D Happy Hunting!
  3. My 1998 gets between 260 - 330 per tank.... So I would say that 250 is about right for 70% city driving.
  4. Can't wait to hear how it is done...this would rush my purchase.
  5. Use premium...it is better for the engine, in general...you bought a Lexus and if you want to take care of it, spend the extra $3-$4 per tank....if you really think about it, it is a no-brainer....it costs on average $.20 more per gallon and you fill up w/ 15 - 17 gallons you are only talking about $3.00 - $3.40 more per tank. Also, the more expensive gas becomes the cheaper the premium becomes as a percentage of the regular. In short, you really aren't saving that much $$$ by putting in the regular gas.
  6. Got 90K on my 98 and still yet to have a problem....plus, it was a CPO about four years ago B)
  7. Go to lextasy.com....good price and they will match the OEM paint of the car.
  8. I ordered mine from www.lextasy.com. Good price, the paint matched the color of the car and it fits like a gem.
  9. Mine say the same thing although none have been replaced. Enjoy the new ride!
  10. I got mine from Lextasy.com. It was nice quality and the paint matched exactly (price was around $280). I cannot tell the difference between it and OEM. The only downside was it took about 2 weeks to receive the part.
  11. It is right by the gear shift. It is a little "flip up" area which reveals the cupholder. It is a horrible design though and does not fit many cups. Definitely my biggest complaint about my '98 GS.
  12. The best solution I have found for a car mount is the cup holder to cell phone cradle adapter. I have one for my PDA (to use GPS via the Pocket PC) and it mounts perfectly from the cupholder. It can be a little cumbersome, but a better solution than drilling holes in the dashboard.
  13. Yes, they do...I ordered one about 6 months ago and it came painted and matched exactly the color of my ride (98 GS300). They are pretty friendly and I received it in less than two weeks. Would definintely do business with lextasy again. B)
