  1. how much do you want for them icluding the shipping? ← I'm now down to $47.50 a pair plus shipping if you care.
  2. how much do you want for them icluding the shipping? ← I'll sell them for $65 a pair and pay the shipping witin the US but would entertain a bid. I have them on eBay so you'd have to give me a chance to get them off before I can confirm. ← I'm now down to $47.50 a pair if you care.
  3. I have 4 Nakamichi SP-C452 4-Inch Coaxial Speakers which fit perfectly as replacement for the OEM speakers for 91 LS 400 and are fully compliant with the OEM Nakamichi system. I just replaced my own on my 91 LS400, but like a dope, I bought too many speakers. I didn't pay attention that they came in PAIRS! Boxes never even opened. I would be they would fit your doors as well, but I would ask around the forum to make sure.

  5. I am selling 4 Nakamichi SP C-452 4 Inch Coaxial speakers with .75" soft-dome, swivel mount tweeter. Frequency response: 105Hz-20kHz, Sensitivity 85db, Impedance: 4 Ohms, Power Handling: 20 Watts RMS 40 Watts Peak. Theyare brand new still in the boxes, never opened. Purchased to replace OEM Nakamichi speakers for early model 1990-1991 Lexus LS400 OEM speakers. I bought 4 too many because I did not realize they came in pairs (!) They are perfect fit for early, first generation LS 400 door speakers (despite what the eBay "do they fit" tool tells you!), match original Nakamichi specs, and thus are excellent after market replacement speakers for these cars. I just installed 4 in my '91 LS400 and I think they're better than the OEMs! Contact me for Price. I have Paypal.

  7. Thx. Something wrong with the site though. Links to door removal no longer work. Bummer.
  8. Anybody know where I can find the directions to remove the inside door panels on a 91 LS400 to install new speakers?
  9. I need some help on diagnosing what may be causing this problem. When I press the accelerator, sometimes I get no juice whatsoever. I don't mean the engine revs but doesn't catch and go like a transmission issue, I mean I can floor it and I get nothing but idle level rpms. Usually happens after a stop at a light, but also can occur while moving. When it first started happening I took it in, and the mechanic wasn't able to replicate the occurence and thought it was all good. Also, he did a scan and said found nothing apparently wrong and was telling me to just come and pick it up. I said something's wrong, figure it out! Then, he did another test drive and at one point the engine just stalled out and died in the middle of the drive. He recommended a complete tune-up and said the car had never had one based on what he described as OEM plugs ('91 with 83K miles). Since then (2 weeks ago) it ran great, but just today started the same no rpms thing again. What could be causing this?
  10. Four Door, What's the downside if you don't fill the gaps? Could that be done with a gasket of some type?
  11. I've done a few searches on TRAC light, and seen some similar issues but was unable to be sure they're exactly the same as mine. My car in parked in an underground garage and driven once or twice a week. Frequently, as I start out, the TRAC light is on (button won't affect it) and the dash light shaped like an engine (forgive my ignorance of it's title, I'm at work and can't look it up) is also lit. This usually persists for about 30-45minutes or 25 miles, whichever comes first. Then they return to normal. What do I need to do to find out what causes this and what if anything, may be the problem. I prefer not to go to "Lexus of Manhattan" and spend $1500 to find out. Any other suggestions or diagnosis?
  12. Does anyone know for sure, whether the Nakamichi aftermarket 'SP C452' speakers will fit EXACTLY as replacements for the OEM Nakamichi door speakers on a 1991 LS400? By fit exactly, I mean plug and play. No cutting, no hacking, no hoping, no nothing. Anyone know?
  13. My 91 LS400 dashboard fuel gauge tops out at 3/4 full even when the tank is full. The dealer said it is shot and needs replacement for some ungodly amount, $750-1200 if I remember correctly. Is this something I can replace myself and if so, how difficult and involved is the process? Where would I get a replacement part. I have never done any work on the car myself before and I don't want to mess this up. I can live with it, and have for 3 years, it's just a little annoying and wondered if I could fix it easily myself.
  14. Okay, So I know you all have gone to great lengths to take care of and detail your cars, but my 91 LS400, after having lived a priveleged life for its first 9 years garaged in a suburb, has become a NYC car. Anyone who has lived in, or worse yet, parked in a Manhattan parking garage for any length of time knows it's death to the exterior. No way around it but maybe paying an extra few hundred dollars in tips PER MONTH, to keep it isolated. And there's no guarantee. So now, I've been dinged, scratched, nicked, and scraped to the point that I'm embarrassed to drive it outside of the city and want to get it completely repainted. The interior is in supurb shape and just needs a real thorough leather cleaning and rug shampoo. Estimate from a reputable body shop with whom I've dealt with before is $3125 PLUS MATERIALS ! Last time I looked the blue book was less than that. I don't think I can justify spending more on the paint job than the car is worth. (PS: it has 85,000 miles after 13 years.) What should I do? The shop owner said go to Maaco and see how their highest quality jobs come out looking, and decide. (Doing that tomorrow). Although I'm quite certain none of you have EVER taken your babies to Maaco, you might have with another car. Is it even worth checking out? Any alternatives? PPS: His other suggestion was move out of Manhattan and buy a new car.
