Drove car at 120+mph for a time while
going through Montana and although it
hugged the road in a straight line
beautifully the front end seemed to
loosen in the corners. Needs to be
tightened up a bit to give the driver a
better sense of grip to the road.
Best overall handling, ride and stereo
system I've ever owned in an automobile.
Change the Dunlop original tires to
Bridgestone Turanza LS-Z rated tires.
Improved interior and road noise as
well as handling charateristics.
They could have tightened it up in the front, which is what it appears they did with the LS 460.
It sits lower to the ground like an S-class or a 7-series.
On top of that it has the lowest drag coefficient of any of those cars.
I get the feeling that when I'm ready to upgrade I'm going to find myself seeking a 2012 LS 460L -- problem is I don't know that I'll ever want to part with my 430.
It is that nice of a car!
