mkell said:Yea, I've seen some salvaged IS's go for ALOT less than that; that's why I am second guessing. I will have to talk to him and see how negotiable he is on the price. As for resale, this car will most likely be kept for a long time so it's going to loose alot of it's value one way or another. If I can hagle the price down, I am going to have it checked by the Lexus dealer. He has reports, receipts, documents, etc on what all happened and what was reapaired. I will definately get down to every detail and aspect. I think anyhitng under $15k would be fair (to me atleast).
Hey Flatline, how about $17.5k with those Zenetti wheels?
yeah that is pretty f-ing amazing, I got mine an 01' 17.7k 42k miles, and I thought that was a good ass deal, mine was in immaculate condition. I'm jealous, but I'm still happy.thiscrazypinoy said:HIGH!!! i bought my 2003 is300 with only 15,000 miles on it for $16,500. considering i have half the miles and a later model.
-i got the better deal , my car still has a problem that came to my attention after i had it serviced. The aircon line hose is broken and needs to be replaced due to the crash that the previous owner had, but wasn't fixed. So when i go back to the states during x-mas, even though i don't need aircon then the total cost will be at about 17,???tpc_01 said:yeah that is pretty f-ing amazing, I got mine an 01' 17.7k 42k miles, and I thought that was a good ass deal, mine was in immaculate condition.

i can be a headache, or it can be one hell of a deal, its a gamble and a must to check out the car in person and have it inspected before you buy it.lexyis300 said:I think that is too high for a salvaged.
Besides you are most likely stuck with it once you buy it. I dunno, I almost bought a salvage but a friend that owns a shop said to stay away. It could be a headache down the road. You'll never know really....
or he can go for a later model salvaged, another way to look at it. But if u really feel that you want to go this route to save a lot of money be prepared to do a lot of work to make sure that he isn't selling you something that will fall apart, down to the the thred wear on the screws. Maybe not that extreme but you get my point.ballaholic925 said:wayy too much for a salvage title..you can get a clean with 50k for that price..much better deal imo
