The Relentless Pursuit of Luxury

2003 Lexus SC 430 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
Review
Relax, grin like a fool and enjoy a friend, the scenery and your favorite music for a 10 minute or a 10 day drive. Meander, wander, toddle & wave - plenty of people will likely be watching. The sc430 handling will not excite the "pure" sports car enthusiast: BMW & Audi handle better, Corvette launches faster, and so on. The sc430 can be made to go fast and corner hard, but the suspension, steering & seats are not really set up for it: This is a modern day Packard! Yes, this car *is* fast, as an artifact of excellent engineering, but that is not the main point. Luxury is. And BMW/Audi/Corvette &c can't match it.
Favorite Features
Retractable hardtop - obviously! (primary consideration). Interior design and feel; exterior design - I definitely like the look more every day; sound system; serene ride at any speed. Reliability and Quality! Lexus service certainly doesn't hurt.
Suggested Improvements
Larger side mirrors. Tire pressure/temp on trip info display. Memorized seat position by key fob. More bolstered seat. Parking distance sensor. Manual/auto-manual transmission. Grand touring rather than ultra performance tires. <65F min temp. Ah, just redo the whole thing... ;)
