    Yes it sure did. Replaced mine yesterday and now working better than ever before. Recommendation was to replace at 15t KM for dusty road environment. My car was at 11t KM when I replaced since hardly no air was coming out. I guess the pollution here in pretty extreme.

    Hello LC200 owners!

    I'm considering acquiring a used LC200 with the intention of having it bulletproofed but am not sure which level of protection is right for me. I'm a businessman and I intend to use it as my daily driver. I see a number of level 6 LC200's in the second hand market but I'm still not sure if it is for me as I see my need for an armored vehicle to be short (maybe 2 years max), I intend to use and keep the vehicle for around 10 years. I saw BR4 level protection available that are light weight, which I read only provide protection against mostly hand guns.

    I therefore have the following questions:

    1) Which year model and variant is best to consider (2015,2016, 2017)?
    2) Best place to look for best price/deal?
    3) For those who have experience with using bulletproof vehicles, is BR4 level protection good enough?
    4) Are these light armoring materials really effective as per the protection level they claim?
    5) Can you recommend a reputable armoring company that is certified?

    Thank you for those who would reply.

    Go to the fb lage of highendcars.ph

    They have tons of Bulletproof LC200s and GM vehicles for sale there. Even bulletproof fortuners.

    Id get the 2017 and newer model if you will keep it for ten years. Thats a lot of extra weight to lug around.

    Most politicians dispose of their bulletproof vehicles thru this guy when they upgrade. And their vehicles are usually low mileage and over built with INCAS protection, super specialized shocks and suspension etc.

    They also buy their lambos and ferraris from him as well. Hehe.

    Thank you sirs for the reply.

    I will have a look at some this week. I did some searching and ang dami pala nag aarmor dito sa Pinas from Hi-protect, to Impenetra to Star Motor Armoring to INKAS, and many more.

    Highend cars has one very low mileage (1500km) 2019 model for 6.750M armored by Emirates (I'm guessing this is Mahindra Emirates), is this price fair already? Parang hindi common yung Emirates

    How does one determine which one does the best job assuming I just buy a late model used unit and have it armored?

    I would get a used diesel v8 lc200. I think this has a heavy duty transmission cooler good for towing.

    Use mahindras armored vehicle feature list as a template. for example they mentioned upgraded suspension. That should be in your checklist.

    Toyota Land Cruiser 2 V8 production to end early in 221?


    Will miss the v8. Wonder how the new v6 will perform in diesel trim.
