I've never driven one but guess they are surefoooted on the road and don't wallow about :thinking:
I loved driving mine but wallowing would depend what your comparing with, it was better than my Grenada Scorpio but not as tight as a 7 series BMW (IMHO) but the ride was superb.... Magic carpet

The ls400 has made a bit of a come back last few yrs

And they defo sell well for this sort of money

The early 1991 to 1993 model drove like a big old boat really :laughing:

But the facelift model like this one drove much better with tighter suspension,but you would love it bob,very quite and very smooth,especially good over pot holes with the big tyres

And the one thing that always impressed me was how such a big old car dug in when you bury the throttle...... Off like a rocket

Spent many years with big saloon cars Triumph 2500 saloon, SD1 V8 x5 and 2.8 Toyota Crown just don't need one now but still keep an eye on GS430's when they come up for sale :wink:....have also looked at the spec of the CT200 SEL....when I feel the time is right to help save the planet :sunglasses:

The CT200 interiors are an acquired taste ....got to be full leather but the cream looks rubbish...yet the black leather looks very gloomy :frowning2:
......and I like to maintain my own cars and the Technology might be too much of my old brain :nerd:

Black leather looks best in the CT

And all the early models have done big miles,so must be reliable

Late low mileage ones are holding strong money at the mo

I've had a few big saloons, including the 2.5 PI and rover vitesse and Grenadas. Even a carlton . Top 3 for me was the LS, BMW 7 series and my merc ...... Probably in that order

With one exception ........ And that was a fairly short relationship with a lotus carlton but that was purely for its performance

Really nice colour on that one Sly.

Can only agree with what has been said about the LS400. I've just spent 2000 miles on European motorways in my 99 LS400 and it was supreme. For not breaking down I will shout her some paintwork :grinning:

GLWTS, Rich. As you have said prices have firmed up for decent ones. 5 years ago and you could have had a mint low mileage last of the LS400s for £2000k. Not a chance, now. The remaining good ones are being held onto. They do just fine on LPG, too.
