I hadnt planned to buy one, in fact I intended to buy an 80 series, even with my reservations around parts availability. But then a few things happened, firstly I got outbid on 4 vehicles, many others were just unrealistically priced. I mean 60k for an 80? I was fully prepared to wait for the right vehicle, right until my daily driver decided to unceremoniously die a couple of weeks ago. Needing a vehicle to transport the kids, I had to move quickly, I missed out on a kakadu 100 series and landed on a 2004 lx470 with 240k km and only a few mods. First impressions? The 2uz sucks alot of fuel, Im also not keen on the satnav, otherwise its very good. Short term Im thinking of a headlight hid upgrade as seen on the forum, a sat nav delete and seat covers. Then roofrack, awning and some touring kit. Longterm if I keep the car, I will be looking into a diesel swap. I just need to work out the vsc. Id be interested in peoples opinions on 5 speed manual vs the 5 speed auto I have now as when I do an engine swap I want to consider the tranny.
