    Toyota of Dallas sells at about the same price as cdan, and I think they have a Lexus dealership, so try them. Pretty sure they have a store on www.parts.com

    I've used this guy before.
    Give em a call & tell them you want to speak to the guy who sells on ebay. I think he may be the parts manager. His name escapes me at the moment, sorry.
    It is a Lexus dealership in Dallas.

    LOL...

    yeah, I guess it would help if you knew the actual name of the vehicle you're shopping for...


    as for the fawkers not using real names...are you talking about Daimler-Benz-Chrysler or BMW or Infinity or Lexus?

    I think he's talking about GS, LS, TSX vs. Land Cruiser, Integra, Allante.

    Some manufacturers are trying to create brand loyalty, not just product loyalty. Notice how people usually refer to their BMW as a "BMW" and not as their 330 or 540. Conversely, TLC owners refer to their SUV's as Land Cruisers and not Toyotas. Different marketing approach.

    A Toyota Land Cruiser is a Land Cruiser. But a Lexus LX450 is a Lexus.

    that's what i was talking about -- cars and names just seem to go together, as compared to cars and code-names -- :rolleyes:

    I see your point, but many people don't always follow that rule. I know several BMW M series owners refer to their vehicles as M5s or M3s...expecting everyone to know what they're driving. Same with the 500 SEL guys. Just my observation...

    I think Lexus did what the higher-end euro manufacturers did in order to get a toe-hold in that particular market.

    Yes, those M's and the like are special vehicles in the BMW line-up and they deserve a distinctive name from the rest of their offerings. But someone who buys an M3 is likely to purchase an M5 down the road. Still have loyalty within the brand.

    Look what happened to the Acura Integra. Most buyers were like 18-35 years old. The Integra was known only as an Integra--the Acura name never mentioned. When it came time to buy a new car though, didn't need another "INTEGRA."

    The successor to the Integra is the Acura TSX. Same type of car but different name. If an owner is happy with their (capital letters) "ACURA" (lower case-TSX), some day they'll buy another ACURA. It probably won't be a TSX... but perhaps an MDX or NSX. :D
