SOURCE: Duration of brake pads? Cost?

pads always depend on the driver. the easier you are on them the longer they will last. the more you ride the brakes the shorter they will last. according to front pads will run you about $36 and for the rear pads $30 for some cheapies and $46 for some good ones.

SOURCE: How do I adjust headlights on 2005 lexus LS430

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

At what mileage do you recommend replacing timing belt? And should I replace water pump at the same time? I currently have 99K on my LS430. Please advise.

Every 60-80,000 miles and most definately replace the water pump and all belts that are involved as the most expense is of course the labor and you are naturally paying for that when they go in to replace the pump so it only makes sense to add on the parts that are easily installed once the timing belt is removed.
Good luck hope this helps.

Is the "certified" distinction for an '05 LS430 worth the extra $

I say a factory warranty is always worth the money, but read the fine print.
