If i was you, i would have replaced the non factory Lexus lights with OEM

OEM set of lights would cost you less than £100

looks clean :)

Collectors will want OEM I***8217;m sure but I think the LEDs look better, especially at night.

It actually seems a reasonable price for what the car is. Shame this is out my price range (for now anyway).

I do have the cars factory rear lights, I personally prefer these but I do understand some will prefer the standard. To be honest my next though is to put the car back to standard and re photograph the car.

It would have done if it wasn't 8k overpriced in the current market !!
No negativity please, however I will explain:

I fully agree its at or near the top end of pricing, however I know from experience, past ownership and seeing other examples, that this is far above an average car.

I also watch Japanese auction prices and I am sure importers can confirm, if you were to try and bid to buy an equivalent R34 V-Spec (Grade 4) with 80000Kms, you would be around 40k+ hammer price.

Plus, no matter how many photographs you have, you are still blind bidding, you then have agent fees, shipping, 30% taxes, UK prep, registration, not to mention the wait.

My car is here, can be physically seen, has been UK prepped to very high standards, can be inspected including on a ramp and has a host of expensive parts.

I am fortunate that I do not need to sell the car and I am in no rush. I have turned down some very good offers. If the price is too high, then it will not sell and I can re-evaluate. However if I reduced it by 8k it would be the price of an average car and my phone would not stop ringing.

70% of enquiries for my car have been to ship it abroad.

Don***8217;t give your home address, meet them far away, ask for a copy of their drivers licence and insurance as way to verify who is viewing. Any genuine person should not have a concern. Good luck.

Really I would never buy from a buyer who wouldn’t let me visit there home, it gives the instant impression of dodgyness

Problem is some buyers can not be trusted.

Had a friend of mine advertise a car on here, potential buyers come along viewed the car, said they wanted it and would collect the weekend.

The most likely scenario is they took an imprint of the key whilst he was distracted.

They disappeared of the face of the earth for a few weeks and he couldn't contact the buyer but the car was locked away.

They then made contact again and arranged to collect it from his work mid week, first time it was out happened to be the day of collection and it gets stolen within minutes of him arriving at work.

:eek:

Lovely condition of car Andy, I wouldn't drop the price as it would be hard to find one in the UK in a similar condition. Good luck with the sale.
