    Thought I would kick off the 40 thread!

    Had mine a while now actually. Bought it in July. As fellow owners will know, SC 430's are quite rare. So I was looking at travelling to the Midlands and further to get one as I could not find one I was interested in any nearer. Scanning Auto Trader one evening I found one around the corner. What's the chances of that?

    Anyway, I am very happy with the car and can confirm, as a former Soarer (3) owner, it's everything the Mk3 was and a lot more. Add in the convertible roof and it's epic.

    About time we got some other 40 owners to register, why not?

    Yeah, all the time, the RX has had 2 or 3 re-calls too for brake master cylinder and something else ???

    IIFC the SC430's were all called in about a year or so after production for a change in the complete suspension system

    I emailed Lexus UK and asked if mine had ever been the subject of a recall. They wanted the VIN and were able to confirm that my car had never been included in any UK recall programme.
