    Saving another poor soul this afternoon.

    Maybe another option for you. I saw what I thought was a black Gen 1 for sale on James just a few blocks west of 31. Didn't have time to stop as I was in a hurry out of town (I visit my parents frequently in Holland). It was in a corner yard on the south side of the street.

    My LS Looks Different!

    Congrats! I've always liked that Lexus; although you'll have to let us know your experiences with that 8-speed. I've heard, at least on older models, less than favorable reviews.

    Wheels & hub-centric rings....

    Bumping an old post, I know, but just wanted to second the value of this information. 63.36 fits perfectly on my '06s hubs. The manufacturer (velox) lists the hub bore for my wheels at 73.1, however I was unable to find rings with those same diameters. I decided to try 73mm OD rings from...

    How many Falures of Accel Coils. Anyone ?

    Hasn't been long for me, about 3 months maybe 2,000 miles. For posterity's sake though I'm happy to report no issues yet.

    Got my car back after the wreck. Need some opinions

    Z3 has gills. I always thought they made their 'fashionable' comeback with the 5th Quattroporte. If we're being honest here, Buick stole the design from Pininfarina...

    Bushing question....

    Not sure how bad yours is getting, but these cars are supposed to have a negative rear wheel camber.

    Suspension and Coolant Issue Although I'm not sure anyone has confirmed these as different to the ones douche parts sells.

    Suspension and Coolant Issue

    Oh boy. For your first two problems try using the search function. You'll find a lot of info on your ageing plastic cooling parts and rear control arm bushings. Spark Plugs come with manufacturer guidelines for tightening. I hand tightened then wrenched 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn. You'll probably...

    Good to know. I was getting excited about MirrorLink when planning my upcoming head unit purchase.

    Somebody drives a nice black Gen 1 to the Planet Fitness by me. I've parked by it twice hoping to run into them (and that its a hot chick /dreaming!).

    Help a new guy out! :)

    Ehh, age would still be a factor. Maybe not as important as mileage, but something to do with it. I think the "data" shows both increases and decreases depending on how you extrapolate it. My problem is its ambiguity. I like what they are trying to do over there, but without more information on...

    Some people are attached to this data but fail to realize its small sample size (about 1200 vehicles).

    Looking good. Just fyi, you missed some licence plate censoring at the end though.

    People tend to forget your credit plays a factor in determining insurance rates.

    '03 Lincoln LS interior squeak

    Something similar was happening in my car. My back bumper likes to come slightly undone right where it comes to a point above the rear wheels. Yes, improbable that I would hear that inside the cabin, but when I had it re-clipped the noise went away. It has since separated again, and I hear the...

    ACCEL Ignition COP install

    Right, parts counter knew what I was talking about. Although the official name is something like a wiper inlet seal. $4.50/ea It was a "warmer" day so I took the LS to a coin-op wash and tested it out. My suspicions were correct on the cowl panel grill. One of the first things I did when I...
