So my dad's Alfa was knackered, as Alfas usually are. So he swapped it for a car he's wanted for nigh on 20 years. The almighty Lexus LS400, with added 1UZ-FE



It's a 1996 in the weirdest colour ever, it looks navy from a distance but it looks like a dark green from up close. It's madness, I can't believe my dad's managed to bag something which was 45k or something like that brand new for just over 1,000, would also say it's the comfiest car I've ever been in. Plans are some lowering, wheels and removing all that orange.

As a car enthusiast, you'll learn to love depreciation

Oh! I nearly forgot to mention this car's best feature, it has a 90s-tastic green interior. Sounds naff but I must admit it does look quite good, it's a subtle shade, I'll get some photos whenever my dad's back.

lol, the 1uz is more than adequate for drifitng.. A 1j swap would be just like handing away all the torque

What he said ^

The engine in this car is phenomenal. My dad just took me out for a cruise while the roads were empty. Popped the gearbox in "Sport mode" (Faster kick down, sharper throttle response and revs all the way to the redline before changing), and booted it from a 50mph roll, within seconds we were going well over 100 with no effort whatsoever.

I love this thing, 179,000 miles and goes like new

1uz v8 up in dis playse


does it sound grunty?
Ben.H
It sounds grunty, very muffled though. Sitting in this car is weird, it's ridiculously quiet, normal driving you can't hear the engine at all, but under hard accelerating you can definitely hear some V8-ness

no. no it isn't.

Cars are cheap to buy, it's insuring them, and putting petrol in them, and taxing them, and servicing them...

Besides I know for a fact that Alfa needs at least 200's worth of work to the suspension

i found expensive buying a car, if what ben says is correct, paying for it will be virtually impossible sad.gif
