First off, please only post if you have something helpful to contribute, or are interested, no BS or lowballing please.

As some of you know, I've been planning to sell my car later this summer for a while now. My wife and I are looking at moving and buying a new house, and it's time for me to move on. I'm listing it up now because I'm guessing it will take quite a while to sell, and I'm in no hurry.

It's a 2004 GGP that I purchased brand new back in 04. It is a 5spd, with every option possible (nav, lsd, leather, etc)....a very rare combo!

It has been treated very well, and stored during the winters. People that know me can easily vouch for me and the quality of this car. I never beat on it, tracked it, raced it, or did anything that could have been damaging.

The car made 392hp & 387tq at 12lbs, but it was driven at 10lbs at 366hp & 360tq on the Haltech. I just switched to the full AEM EMS standalone a couple months back now too.

The attention to detail on this car is amazing, I have cleanly modified almost every area of this car. It won Best Lexus in my division at HIN Chicago this year. It is also featured in a 5 page article in Modified Magazine for July 2009: http://my.is/forums/f87/modified-mag-july-2009-check-out-390418/).

Pics can be seen here: http://my.is/forums/f90/dmb359-2009-edition-pic-time-389552/

I'm now asking $26,000

or $23,000 with these items removed:
-CF Trunk (replaced with stock trunk)
-LED Tails (would first need stock tails to replace them)
-Seats/Harnesses/Harness Bar/Extinguisher/air bag plugs (would first need stock seats to replace)
-JDM steering wheel (replaced with stock wheel)
-Valentine 1
-CF engine covers

thanks man, you too.

I'm not happy to sell it, and I know I'll miss it, but its that time in my life (I'm sure you know what I mean)

I won't be going anywhere either, and you know I won't miss OH2Kx with or without an IS, lol

exactly what I am looking for but just too much. I am ready to trade my 2002 M5 for a Turbo IS300 5spd!

Not looking for an M5, but let me know if you change your mind.


you could find a stock 04 5speed, low miles, with all options (good luck) for like $17k, then spend like $30k in mods on your own if you'd rather, lol


you aren't gonna find a clean, low miles, well boosted car, modified this much, for much less
