  1. From what I've seen, most are paying $600 to $700 for that kind of job. Labor is included. The price you have seems to be in line. I was quoted $650 and then talked with the guy at Stone-X that actually does it for the dealer. He told me that it's NOT for a "full warp". For $650, I get the hood, front fenders, door handle backing plates and trunk opening backing plate (fingernail scratches). These are not pre cut. They actually remove the grill and wrap it around the sides and cut. It does NOT include the front valance, pillars, headlights, foglights, etc. I plan to wait until I'm info
  2. I find this thread to be amazing. I bought my ls 430 ultra from lexus of northborough. elizabeth stevens was the lying c-word salesperson. air suspension had been repaired with no record given to me. [a part failed 1yr later thatleft the rear end suspended like a 60s dragster]. rear end had been hit. of course I wasnt told. park sensor in front damaged and I had pictures I took before I bought it and they said I was lying. the park distance control was turned off conveniently when I test drove it and took delivery. lexus corporate did nothing. the GM [named eric something or other] is an arro

  4. I wanted crystal white/cashmere but it was impossible to get without a special order so I ended up with matador red with cashmere and it is GORGEOUS. all the black interior combos are ugly and black/black is such a lame cliche as to be unbeleivably tacky. seems like its either youngsters or old macho man wannabes who get that combo. coming from an ls 430 ultra with millenium silver/black I NEVER want to see another black interior again. its not like its hard to keep the interior of your car clean unless youre lazy.
  5. they hang out at clublexus.com . everyone there is not 'a mechanic' but they re relatively mature and knowledgeable. much more active than this IS forum for sure. edmunds.com has a more active IS forum too.
  6. In my opinion buying a LEXUS is money well spent unlike most other auto mfg's. <_< ← can you in anyways explain to me how is the money well spend in you opinion cheap interior the interior IMHO can't compete with the TSX i mean comon if you want our money use your brain a little bit more the exterior is nice, expect the stupid side mirror i believe with that quality it should be around the TL G35 price not a bimmer 330i price don't know if you guys would agree just my 2 cent ← jeez what kind of english translation is this? its almost unintelligi
  7. I drove an IS 350 on monday at the local dealer with the sport package and power tilt and telescoping wheel was present.
  8. this guy has to be stupid. 1. satellite radio is an OPTION so unless you request it of course it wont work. 2. there are 2 satellite radio options in america and we are lucky to have them since the terrestrial radio lobby fought very hard against it. 3. I know for a fact that there is an xm radio compatible plug and play fully integrated system for lexus. I own it. 4. yeah I know you can get 3 months of working satellite radio in some new acuras. BUT THIS IS NOT ACURA. 5. as an xm radio subscriber I can get free internet streaming as of 4/1/05. its a LOT easier to rant when you dont know
  9. I just paid 360 for the xm sat add on from vais tech. its the same cost as an xm unit for an 05 ls 430. the benefit is the direct integration into the ml sound system. I would never play mp3s even if you could in that system.
  10. mine is a 2001 as well and YOU CANNOT upgrade it yourself. later model years you can but for 2001 there is programming that the dealer has to do. it does store your current settings though and updates the graphics and POI listings et al.
  11. your car is not worth 53000 or 49000. I paid 39995 from a lexus dealer for my ultra with 39400 miles on it non CPO which would have cost me an extra 2000. they had come down from 42500 because the car sat on their lot for 45 days. so they said anyway. as of september your car is now another year older. you will be buried in that car if you think youre going to get anywhere near that price regardless of the mileage.
  12. I dont believe any car is silent on the road. the ls 430 included. my wife and I went to a local dealer so she could test an rx 330 and the first thing the sales guy said once we were underway was 'notice how quiet it is'. uh no. relative to other vehicles well its more quiet but silent no. and that goes for my 01 ls 430 ultra and the 04 ls 430 I test drove last summer too. its a quiet car relative to other cars but that just speaks to the undue noise coming from the lack of sound insulation. of course if when I get rid of my craptastic michelin mxv4 energy tires maybe for the continental ext
  13. you beat me to it rl. lexus link is dead for new subs because its currently analog and furthermore the current units will not be upgraded to digital and there is a current TSB for owners to come in and have it removed/disabled. this ties the current record for the over use of the word and variants of current.
  14. a lot of these responses are pointless when regarding the original topic. I am pretty sure that you can go to the dealer and have them turned off. the info I have been given [i have not confirmed it yet with a dealer] is that if you do have them programmed off you then lose your fog lights as well which doesnt make sense to me but thats the info I have been given. I will ask a dealer soon since I hate them too but I cannot see them when I am driving so its not that bad.
  15. how much is that complete toms kit for the ls 430?
