Hello,

I have been trying to find/buy a 150 for about a year now here in Belgium/Europe and struggling with finding basic info or even an LC for sale anywhere near me so here are some questions I have that hopefully you guy's can help me out with.

1.Wikipedia says European Land Cruisers were called LC3,LC4,LC5 for their trim levels, I assume they mean UK and not Europe because everything i see says VX, TX, etc. Either way, is there a breakdown of what the price and options were for those trim levels for lets say 2010 or 2012 LC's because when i do find them for sale they are usually those years? An original sales brochure from that time period would be ideal even if it's from the UK cause I bet I can decipher what a LC3 was called over here with enough info.

2.Is there any information on how many were sold in the UK or Europe roughly? I ask because they are exceedingly rare especially with 7 seats, if I am looking for a needle in a big haystack or a little haystack would be really helpful to know.

3. For those of you with the 7 seat option, I have watched a few youtube videos about the 3rd row and there hasn't been a lot of consistency on their accessibility/comfort level for longer trips. Would a small adult like 5 foot 6 be semi-comfortable in the back or it strictly a kids only zone?

4. Parking these things in public garages: I assume if you can park them in the UK I can do it here in Belgium but honestly how much of a pain is it? I drive a Prius which even for Belgium is good sized car and pretty much every park job is parallel and with a ton of stress even with sensors and a camera.

5. What are some additional J150 related websites/resources? I have scoured youtube and the normal web searching but mostly come up with Aussie stuff which to a degree is helpful but not with the questions I have right now.

Ok that's all I have for now, thanks in advance for any info.

Eric

Hi,

1. Yes, the U.K. Is LC derivatives, LC 3,4,5 then anniversary models. Prices, a 2011 example in LC3 trim I'd say 23-25k, anniversary 28-30k, will avg miles, say 50-60k
2. #'s, not sure, but they are not to many I've seen in the UK either, as to 7 seats capacity, not sure if std or an option, or at what level (LC3,4,5) they may be as std. I would consider having the 7 seats as not rare etc
3. I've an anniversary, electric rear seats, 2 kids, or 1 adult would be OK.
4. Big car = big space, check model specs, you can have parking sensors, and all round cameras
5. I've got Bly used this site, very quiet, hopefully reflects how reliable they are  Very Happy

Thanks for the info, 1 more quick question about air suspension, is that an option or standard on all trim levels?
