General Information

Flint Mica
Base, Towing Package
Heavily neglected but otherwise clean RX350
AWD with the 3.5 L 2GR-FE V6, 360k kilometres on it and lots of broken stuff! I had an opportunity to grab this for very cheap so I just couldn't pass it up despite the high mileage. The body is in great shape and mechanically it is very well off after a proper makeover! Coming from a 2002 Highlander, I felt right at home with this platform and jumped right into the upgrades - this time having a second chance of doing things a little differently and better compared to my 1st car.
