Pretty sure the LX was alwys 50 state compliant. There was just a thread which indicated that several earlier years of 80 series were not 50 state compliant, but my memory fails me as to which years...OZCAL said:I know my LX 450 would not have been California compliant when it was new in 1997, but I registered it there in 2004 without issues.
patpend2000 said:In most other states, the O2 sensors have a shorter replacement interval than in CA or NY. the reasons for this is emissions.
For example, in some vehicles, a timing belt is due at 90K, in CA it's due at 105 b/c after 100K miles it is not longer under emissions warranty and the manuf. doesn't have to pay for it's replacement should it fail
