    Default Toyota Land Cruiser Experts!!

    I was lookin for a good LC 2002 onwards
    but didnt find any with everything.....
    Saw 9-10 LC`z from a paki auctioned for
    30lacs till the freshly imported 48-50Lacs!
    Saw 2 petrol and rest diesel....
    1 had everything in it but no sun roof and had a
    spare tyre at the back.....( lookin for down tyre )
    other had no Height control or NAV.....
    checkd out a bomb lookin ash grey 2002 (2005 facelift)
    with good rims but the interior was black n like
    the current corolla....! some had stock 17" rims some
    18" ......Saw one in maroon with everything....xcept the
    Mark Levinson sound system....but it didnt have those
    bright white meters....plus it was a V8 petrol....!
    Some didnt have height control....some didnt have
    power seats....searchd the whole market...didnt find
    1 LC with every option! so now im really confused!
    only 2 had stock Xenon Lamps others didnt!
    and only 1 had a telescopic steering wheel!

    2000-present Land Cruiser
    VX
    VXR
    VX limited
    GX
    GXR
    KX { European }
    KXR { Market }

    @roadburner
    The kind of LC you are looking for, i would suggest you try out AMAZON (thats the british model of LC) It has every option you demand but not the mark levinson sound system But it can be original diesel.
    2nd option is you go for CYGNUS (japanese domestic) that comes in petrol V8 only and has all the options you demand.
    Rest most of these LC as they say the Grand Cruiser, you will always find some or the other option missing. The Cygnus front is with 4 lights only, if you find one in that shape with diesel, thats not original engine then.
    I am driving an Amazon and its simply the best. have kept a cygnus also so am able to guide a little here.
    Hope the info is sufficient enough.

    @Road
    yes do check out the LC Cygnus it has all the options you mention. You have to understand that in Japan these vehicles are ordered with what the 1st owner wants. So the trim levels have only certain options std and the rest are all optional. What I am trying to say is that if itsays VX-limited which should be the top of the line with all the options would still be missing some options unless the owner did not order those.

    As for Cygnus it is at the level of the Lexus options and takes things a step further.

    My Dad's LC is a V8 Petrol Vx Limited. With tyre beneath the car. Tail lights are like those of Cygnus. Got power seats, height control, Navigation. Interior trim got wood. Full Leather seats. Dont know about the sound system never checked it in detail. But got many speakers. Rims are 18 inches. Its a 2003 model and 2005 Sep/Oct registered.

    Btw, in 3-4 lacs ya can get a normal VXR converted into sorta like Cygnus package.

    Most of the Amazon are not available in white color usually maroon, green, black(a bit expensive) and grey colors.

    What is a telescopic steering? Ya mean tht green color speed display on the windscreen.

    And how to check about Mark Levinson system?

    I would recommend you go for an Amazon the facelift version which started end 2002. You get rear aircon and nav in english.Apart from the normal features such as height control,leather,7 seats the UK version has better built quality as it has to compete under strict safety standards in the Uk. Oh 1 more thing the jap models cruise control doesn't work beyond 110km and that goes for every car make made for jap market

    Cygnus is the top loaded version in LandCruiser but it only comes in petrol.
    In Diesel u get VX ltd G Selection wich im currently looking for on Japanese auction sites for sum1.
    G selection does have Hieght control, Vertical Stability Control etc etc but as far as other accessories like Beige Interior (Leather), Sunroof and Sat Nav actually vary from car to car depending on wether the original buyer ordered them or not. the fully loaded ones wid all options are a rare find.. not tht they r not there and they go quite high in the auction biddings

    @termiii is right

    LC Cygnus is the most loaded version of Land Cruiser in Right Hand Drive and is equivalent to Lexus LX470 in Left Hand Drive, However it doesnot come in Diesel

    In Diesel the most options are found in G Selection series.

    Since many of these SUVs are customizable therefore you can choose if u are ordering new, BUT for used ones it depends on what 1st buyer ordered. If you have that kind of money to buy Cygnus then u can also afford Petrol.
