  1. I have a 1995 with 320,000km, so I know how you feel. I've used AutoPartsWay.ca and am pretty happy with them (AutoPartsWay.com for Americans).
  2. A little over a year ago I pulled into the driveway, got out, looked at my headlights and watched one burn out. I turned the car off, went inside for a minute, came back outside, started the car, and literally watched the other one go out! I couldn't believe it! They weren't Silverstars, but they were aftermarket. Changed the bulbs and everything was fine. It happens!
  3. Jcrome04, as long as we're talking about having the mirrors dip while reversing to park (to avoid the curb), I've "created" my own solution on my '95. Simply set your first seating position exactly as you'd like it, then dip your mirrors manually and save it as your second seating position. When pulling up to a spot, quickly shift into park and select the second seating position before shifting into reverse. It only takes a second, and the mirrors will continue towards their lower position even as you start to roll backwards.
  4. Thanks to everyone for all the help! If I did end up leasing, I would definitely be writing it off for business. However, I've now found a cheaper shop and they have already fixed the coolant and heating issues for $110 (includes the check engine diagnostic too)! I'm now much more optimistic than I was yesterday, and the other issues will cost less than I initially guessed. I can also drive it for a little while longer, but still get rid of it before the timing belt (and since I don't owe anything on it, I can pocket whatever cash I manage to get). It might not be too long until I'm in th
  5. I know I don't post much, but I actually frequent this forum pretty often. I have a 1995 LS400 with 309,000kms on it (~193,000 miles) and it seems everything just broke at once. I have an O2 sensor to replace, EGR tube, and a coolant issue (it's spraying out). In addition, the heating system has a clog (or something like that...), three dash lights are out, and there are other little things like the seat heaters failing, etc. The timing belt will also be due for replacement in a little while. Before I spend even more money (just spent $700 on the starter), is now a good time to get out an
  6. Raymsixsix, did you manage to take any photos?
  7. LScott400, if you don't mind me asking, how long have you had them on the car? Looks great.
  8. Thanks. I'm just not sure I prefer the JDM look with silver paint. I'd much rather my tail light wasn't cracked and I didn't have to do something about it! ;) For $200USD or so, are the housings going to start letting in water in three months?
  9. Does anyone know what the quality of those clear tail lights on Ebay is like? I have a cracked driver's side (outer) lense on my 1995 LS400 and can't find a replacement without buying new from the dealership. What's the chance that I can buy those lights and make the clear part orange? :)
  10. You're lucky! I go to a Toyota dealer for service and the last time they kept my LS over night, I got to putt around in a Yaris!
  11. I had the same thing happen to me after a rainstorm. I hadn't driven the car in a few days and for what it's worth, frequent driving since then has made the problem go away.
