Hello from Sweden.

Hi all.

Im new in here but not new to the lexus market. I have during the 2 years built Swedens first legit ongoing VIP project of a GS430. Head over to clublexus and my nick is "swegs430" if u want to see more of that.


For now the GS is no longer able to be driven as a daily driver, So im scouting a SportX in germany and will go down and pick one up next weekend i hope. 04 model is200 with 70000km on the clock. I want the is300 but i hate it to be automatic so a is200 it is. Lets see if a 1jzvvti founds it place in there later on anyway

So ill keep u all updated about the purchase and looking forward for my stay at my.is


/Sebastian

First plans i have for the SportX.

*Altezza grill
*Altezza Window Visors
*Red out tails
*Custom Sedan frontlip mod on SportX stock front.
*BC racing "ExtremeDropKit" Allready ordered
*17-18 wheels with moderate agressivnes
*Have Junction Produce interior as curtains and neckpads+pillows to be put in allready.

So that will be done straight when i get the car.

I need your help people.

im about to go down and pick this one up. Everything looks legit and got all service history sent to me. BUT ive read alot about the options etc trough the diff years etc! My question is, Do this have the LimitedSLip?

Lexus IS 200 SportCross DACH E-SITZE KLIMAAUT. SITZHZ. als Kombi in Brandenburg

It has all other options and regards to the net the 2004 model were equiped with the limitedslip as standard! why im wondering is of just that simple thing that the rear windos are not tinted! that is typical something u see on a sport edition.. Quick help needed.

Looks sick!^ Im not feeling the shave inner tails though. It's like taking away one of the signature look of the IS300s imo. I love the red tails though.....thats what I have.

I don't know if you found out your LSD answer, but from the code you provided it should. A doesn't b,c do. You can read more about that here https://my.is/forums/f87/do-i-have-ls...k-more-300932/

As far as the shaved inners, I would normally agree with josh on losing the key looks of our cars. But in this case I disagree I think the shave makes it look more euro and the back looks less busy.
