    1999 GS400 w/ L-sportline Modifications
  1. I am referring to the air filter intake....not the manifold so I am hoping it will be fine. He car was originally purchased in CA so it should already be CA SMog Emmission Ready. Any updated thoughts? I should not have any problems....except for visual inspection?
  2. My Lexus GS400 had a aftermarket Open Filter type intake installed when I bought it. Will I have any problems getting CA Smog Certificate? Thanks LexusWoman
  3. THIS LEXUS HAS A 2 YEAR/36,000 MILE WARRANTY AND IS AUTOCHECK ASSURED!!!! I am selling a 1999 Lexus GS400 which has been driven and maintained by a professional adult over the past year. According to an L-Sportline Rep, this vehicle was purchased new by L-Sportline (www.lsportline.com) in 1999 who completed all of the modifications to use the vehcile as their Flagship Vehicle for Car Shows. They then sold it one of their distributors in Tennessee who unfortunatly had the vehicle repo'd which is how I ended up buying it 1 year ago for my wife from the bank wholesaler. My wife has driven it very carefully over the past year and now she has decided she needs something bigger for carpooling kids. Besides the Features and Modifications listed below, one thing that makes this vehicle a better/safer purchase is that it comes with a Warranty which I purchased 1 year ago and can transfer to the next owner. Just 6 months ago we used the warranty at our local Luxes dealership to get a new radio installed....no questions asked. The warranty is through Automotive Warranty Services and good until 7/06 or 76,000 miles - Platinum Coverage - $0 Deductible Standard Features/Specifications: 1999 Lexus GS 400 38,000 miles 4.0L V8 300+ HP Rear Wheel Drive 5 Speed Automatic with Steering Wheel Shifting Electronic Control Transmission Switch (Snow/Power) Vehicle Skid/Traction Control Silver Exterior/Grey Interior Heated Seats HID Headlights Heatd Front Seats ABS 4 Wheel Disc Brakes One Touch Power Windows Power Lock/Mirrors Power Sunroof Leather Upholstery Outside Temp Gauge Til/Telescoping Power Steering Dual Power Seats Dual Memory Seat/Sterring for Husband/Wife Auto/Dual Climate Control AM/FM/Cassette Player with 6 Disc Changer Remote Entry/Factory Alarm Additional/Extra Remote Entry (Cost me $200) Aftermarket Modifications (Professionally Installed): L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Front Bumper Spoiler, Rear Apron & Side Skirts) - $1,750 L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (3pc Rear Deck Spoiler) - $380 L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Roof Spoiler) - $285 L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Front Grill Replacement) - $250 L-Sportline Stainless Steel Exhaust System is $850 L-Sportline Tuned 2" Suspension Drop (Springs/Shocks) is $1,200 (http://www.group5motorsport.com/cgi-bin/GRPstore.cgi?user_action=list&category=L-Sportline) Toyota Supra Front Caliper Upgrade - $300 Cold Air Intake - $200 Aftermarket Digital Tilt/Shock Sensor Alarm (which uses factory remote/key) - $300 Front/Rear Calipers Painted Blue - $100 Tinted Windows (lifetime warranty) - $150 New Chrome 18" Rims and Kumho Exsta MX 245/40ZR18 Tires - $1800 (only have 4,000 miles on them) Including Paint/Labor, there is over $10,000 in modifications. Although this vehicle is 5 years old, it only has 38,500 miles on it and looks almost brand new except for a few small rocks chips in hood which I have touched up using touch-up paint. Check out the pictures. The Rims/Tires have about 4000 miles on them and are about 6 months old. When I bought the vehicle last year, I had a new battery installed and had Lexus complete a $400 30,000 mile tune-up which included: New Engine Oil, Brake Fluid, Transmission Fluid, Differential Fluid, Air FIlter, A/C Filter, Coolant and wipers. They also inspected Brake lines/pads, Fuel Lines, Sterring Linkages, etc. It drives great and there is no need to worry....especially with about 2 years and 38,000 miles left on warranty. I have the oil changed every 3000 miles. I have receipts for the tuneup, tint, oil changes, extra remote and alarm. I ran a Car-Fax last year when I bought vehicle and there were no issues/problems (which is why I completed purchase)....I can fax this to you if you like. I also just ran a AutoCheck and it came back Autocheck Assured!!! I can fax this to you as well if interested. I just spent this weekend detailing the vehicle inside and out including wax. I also have more pics if you are interested E-Mail me. There are no ENGINE modifications so the vehicle is dependable and basically stock as far as mechanical issues. The only mechanical changes were cold air intake and exhaust system. According to NADA, the Average Retail Value (w/o modifications or warranty) is around $27,000. Asking $29,000 OBO E-mail me at mark@allaboutjohnson.com if interested
  4. If you are interested in buying a 99 GS400, I have one with 39K miles, warranty, Chome Rims and over $10,000 in aftermarket modifications (mostly L-Sportline) that you might be intereted in. E-Mail me at mark@allaboutjohnson.com Mark
  5. You are obviously not familiar with L-Sportline's quality of products and pricing, allow me to educate you with some facts: http://www.myautofashion.com/lsporlinbodk.html L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Front Bumper Spoiler, Rear Apron & Side Skirts) - $1,750 L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (3pc Rear Deck Spoiler) - $380 L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Roof Spoiler) - $285 L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Front Grill Replacement) - $250 The above alone totals $2,600...add at least another $650 for paint and install...brings this to $3,250. L-Sportline Stainless Steel Exhaust System is $850...add at least $150 for install...brings this to $1,000. L-Sportline Tuned 2" Suspension Drop (Springs/Shocks) is $1,200...add at least $400 for install....brings this to $1,600. Toyota Supra Front Caliper Upgrade is around $300...add at least $200 for install since calipers have to be modified to fit on Lexus Rotor....brings this to $500. Intake is $500 as you stated. Brand new 18" rims/tires are $2,000 as you stated. That brings the total to around almost $9,000....so I am off by about $1,000....my appoligies. All of this was actually compelted by L-Sportline themselves as opposed to a local bodyshop whcih might have some extra value to some people. I was not trying to make the car seem like it is worth more than it is. I am just trying to state what condition the vehicle is and what has been done to it so someone could give me an idea of what it might be worht to someone. I did not expect you/anyone to telling me to part it out or checking my facts to the nearest $100....although I was off by $1,000 by $1,000. All I was expecting was some estimated figures between $25,000 and $35,000 since according to NADA it is worth between $25K-$29K and according to Kelly Blue Book it is worth around $26K...so if I added half the mod value and maybe $500 for the extended warranty....$30K-$32K might be more reasonable (if someone found hte mods beneficial...which is the only way I could sell it like it is anyway). Thanks to all that were supportive. If you have any constructive input, opinions or offers...go for it. TurboGS300...Hmm...would you take a child in with the package as well? :-)
  6. I was trying to get an idea of what I could get for it based on the fact that it has about $10K in modifications. If someone is interested, like yourrself, in making an offer, that would be fine. But I am not giving it away. It is a awesome car with low miles, extended warranty with a great modifications package and looks great. Thanks for input and anyone interested feel free to make offers or at least provide your unbaised opinion. Lexuswoman (by the way I am the husband of the current driver)
  7. Hey guys/gals, If I was planning on selling my 1999 Lexus GS400, I was wondering what you think I could get for it or what it's real value would be in your opinion. 1999 Lexus GS400 V8 - 36,000 original miles Extended Warranty Good Till 7/06 or 76,000 miles through Automotive Warranty Services - Platinum Coverage - $0 Deductible. Aftermarket Air Intake L-Sportline Aerodynamics Package (Front Bumper Spoiler, Rear Apron, 3pc Rear Deck Spoiler, Roof Spoiler, Side Skirts, Front Grill Replacement) L-Sportline Stainless Steel Exhaust System L-Sportline Tuned 2" Suspension Drop (Springs/Shocks) Toyota Supra Front Calipers Slotted Rotors (Front/Rear) Brand New 18" Chrome Wheels Brand New Kumho Ecsta MX Tires (245/40YR18) It does not have Upgraded Radio System but has heated power seats. I was recently told by L-Sportline that this actual vehicle was their Flagship Vehicle used at car shows and it might even have 1-2 other upgrades that are not visable such as gearing, etc. There is a chance I will be selling this vehicle in next few months and want to plan ahead on what I can realistically expect. Thanks
  8. I had a few posts with different information and pictures, then changed my mind about selling them and I coudl nto figure out how to delete posts so I replaced each post with same text. It is kind of funny!!! I asked moderator to delete posts or at least extra posts but they said no. I could nto find a way to change the title of post either. Go figure.
  9. Sorry Methodical...Rims/Tires no longer for sale.
  10. You cna get these Sportlines for $1,500!!! http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index...st=0#entry37861
