I had the Lexus mechanics check my horn while they were replacing my (recalled) airbags. They tell me it is a spiral cable problem. Where do I find this part? Or someone to fix it without costing me a fortune?
fuses ok, horns good and loud

Will someone who knows please tell me whatI can expect to pay for high performance tires for my SC430 and do they require an alignment when put on new? I believe balance is in the price of the tires, is that true?

Until you own an SC430, you just can't comprehend how you become part of the car, once you're behind the wheel. You're not just driving, you're involved; changing lanes, the ML sound system, the V8 sound, all of that neat stuff!! What a car: Love it!
