  1. cause they are ebay crap. those headlights are seriously junk sir..... B)
  2. Found that out the hard way I had to buy another one today. what kind are you looking for? i have a few at the house Do you still have the OEM HID Light for the GS 300 1998? nope, sold it.
  3. nah its a direct bolt on with the vertex kit. panda has one, 2 guys in japan (one being a red drift car other is the vertex one) and one guy in hawaii has one check it out here http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-...x-makeover.html
  4. just so u guys know the car ACTUALLY holds 19.5 gallons. i typically drive bout 340-360 miles in the city and close to 400 on the interstate (doing UNDER 2,200 rpms with cruise) and i average bout 17-19 in city and 22-24 on highway in my 2001 gs430. light on my dash lights up and from trial and error i have discovered i have bout 80-100 miles left even after my nav screen shows zero i drive for close to 80-100 miles and i still have some gas. lexus put WAY to much reserve in their
  5. u sure it comes from the speedometer and not right about knee level when sitting in seat? this is where the drivers side servo is located, by the right kneecap
  6. isn't a P0171 a o2 code? check bank 1 o2 sensor from my recollection
  7. i use lexol....it works good. im not thrilled with it but it does work well
  8. it is possible your remote ecu (that is located in the passenger rear c-pillar has gone bad) i HIGHLY doubt all your actuators went out at the same time although it is problem
  9. the noise, is it coming from behind the speedometer or where is this noise coming from? any problems with the car? does it do it on start up? anytime the car is on? when you run the air? what? need some details sir.........
  10. here....easy DIY http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index...showtopic=46410
  11. yeah get a kit like i linked or one from the other link
  12. if your motor calls for 5w-30 run, 5w-30. y would u wanna change? i actually used to run 10w-30 mobil 1 on my gs but went back to 5w-30 on MY gs recently. yes, i had a reason for this too btw but its not worth it
  13. yea i got one. go buy a wrecked Toyota Tundra from an auction, the one that has the 5.7 Lit V8 engine. take that engine out and put in your GS300. You might have to change a few parts.. ECU, engine mounts etc... but you gonna have the fastest GS300 out there!!! some serious V8 power there!!! and man have you seen the headers the toyota tundra got?? haha and thats factory!! and please dont get me started on the exhaust that car comes with... sounds like scary !Removed! monster!!! imagine if you had all that in your GS300!!! :::ssssghh:: If only I had the time and the money!! :( ACTUALLY its been tried....the 5.7 is to big to fit. the 4.7 fits though
  14. if u want yellow get the 3k kit dude is selling for 70 bucks. cant beat that although i would make sure its not some POS korean kit
  15. SK, u forget as the gs becomes cheaper and cheaper you will see it riced out more and more often with all these kids under 20 buying them or inheriting them
  16. this is the guy i have used for the last 6 years, you can pick your bulb/temp and its the same price http://myworld.ebay.com/nissangtrpower/ as a matter of fact i bought replacement bulbs from him this morning. (i scrapped my front end and i broke my foglight and bulb) my replacement bulbs were 29.99 for the pair his kits are only 103.99 BUT his shipping is like 41 as everything comes 2nd day aired FROM JAPAN so its not a bad price. 140ish and its at your door from japan in under 3 days http://cgi.ebay.com/XENON-HID-CONVERSION-K...1QQcmdZViewItem
  17. HID's WERE an option on the gs300....standard on the gs430. if u have HID'S u have auto leveling.... ALSO HID'S arent measured in wattage....so no mechanic cant tell you wattage. HID'S are measured in kelvin temperature. if they oem i think they are 4300k. just look up your bulb type and temp and replace it yourself. DONT take this to a dealer. i have HIDS factory in my low beams and aftermarket in my highs and fogs. easy to replace
  18. no its not.... try these posts... (p.s. i have tried balljoints, brakes, alignment, road force alignment,tires, and now that i have aquired them...i will be doing my bushings in the next few weeks) http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-...ines-fixed.html http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-...adjustment.html p.s. easiest and allegedly the best fix is the daizen steering rack bushings here is a DIY for it http://clublexus.com/forums/suspension-and...ck-bushing.html
  19. .........buy a used one from a junkyard for probably $100 install it yourself and see what it does.... they should also be able to tell you if the servo's are working now and not AFTER they install that part
  20. just make sure its cool and there are no problems washing the engine
  21. um.....u could JUST unbolt this beam instead of cutting through it you know
  22. um, a few things. one he wants to cut into the area where the rear armrest folds down. so he would be cutting into the leather to go INTO the trunk, not into the floor. 2nd gas tank on gs is UNDER back seat similar to something like this http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-...at-armrest.html
