Nice ride. Not terribly exciting looking, but the interior is money!

No matter how many RHD cars I see... they will always look funny to me. Nice looking ride though.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Nice ride. You can put the Box in the back if you need to.

all

Gas is pretty good on this one! The previous LX470 seemed to be worse???

Putting our personalised plates on next week (when I get a chance) AWD....I laughed too

Drives like nothing else (4WD I mean), incredible ride (suspension), and great interior features (gizmos)....

If it keeps HER happy......I'm happy

So do our cars look weird with the steering wheel on the left?

Nice looking interior.

Cool, I was steered away from those because the salesman said they are on the same platform as the camry or something like that. Hence, we got a cayenne, lol.

I think many years ago this was true about the Lexis small SUV (the RX300??) and the Camrey. I don't think this is true anymore, the Lexis SUV's have their own platforms now.

I have the 99 LX 470 as my daily driver. Great for those snow days and skiing. Have 165000km and still going strong. Avg about 13mpg on the downside. Kind of boring looking, so I put some 20" wheels on it.

The LX470 is based on the "Landcruiser" (I have 2 of those as well )

The pic of the boat on the back is from the previous owner (he is one of the largest boat sellers in Aus.)

Chills.... I'm used to seeing the steering wheel on the left and driving on the right as I spend a few months per year in the USA! When in the states I drive a H2 on 24's (my Cousins' in Vegas)

Where is that guy from New England who was beating me up on global warming. Seems to me he should be ALL OVER this thread.

Hummers and LX470s, this is a greenies worst nightmare!
