#28 of 56 GOLD EMBLEMS FOR LS400
Apr 24, 2005 (8:33 pm)
Hi, I'm a first time "poster" I hope i am doing this correct. I just purchased a 1994 LS400 and I am looking for the gold emblem ( LS400) only. They didn't put that emblem on the '94, only from "95 and on.I tried the local Lexus dealers but they want too much $$.Also tried the wrecking yards but to no avail. Does anyone know a parts supplier that might handle this? I have located a gold plated one , but it doesn't match the OEM, which requires an electrical process applied over the gold.I have read some good discussions on how to remove the emblems.If anyone has one for sale let me know..
#29 of 56 LS430 Navigation System update versions

Does anyone know what version of the Nav CD will update my 2002 NAV data? I know V4.+ will not, and I suspect that 3.3 won't either.

There is really no OEM gold plated emblem. It all depends on which dealer installed them. Some dealers do electroplating which only costs the dealer about $100. The problem with this is the quality sucks....a year and the gold will look bad. The other(I don't know what it's called) is a lot more expensive but will last a bit longer. Either way gold trim is not that great, all the methods used have their limitations, and the gold looks pretty crappy with oxidation after a few years.

Thanks for the comeback. The dealer wants $120.00 for the LS400, and I was hoping that someone was going to remove their emblem. You are probably correct, I guess I will leave it off. Thanks...

Thanks for the offer, but it's too late, I purchased the Gold emblems which I found on the ebay.
#36 of 56 LS 400 strut tower braces
Sep 22, 2005 (3:15 pm)
This is my first post. I have a 1990 LS 400 with 20's on it. It runs great but, I want it to handle around the corners a little better. I read about STRUT TOWER BRACES but, I don't know how they work. Any body out there know about these or any other way to get these LS's to handle better?
