Very few people are aware how well
this sporty model compares to
BMWs & M-Benz. Handling &
roadholding are superb. 18" tires
stay glued to the road, regardless of
undulations & nothing fazes it,
inspiring enormous confidence.
Unlike the std. model's extra-plush
ride, you know exactly what the road
surface is like under you. Feedback
is firm, but not harsh, making the
driving experience very Lexus-like.
However, you must enjoy sporty
handling; if pure luxury is your thing,
you probably shouldn't order this
suspension. But if you want a great
car that is also great fun to drive, this
one is for you. Given 500hp, this
would be the Best of the Best!
Unmatched build quality, perfect
seats, lovely interior, best factory
stereo period, no key req'd
(w/Smart Key), sonar parking assist
(when in unfamiliar places),
rain-sensitive wipers work by
themselves! A sense of precision
permeates everything; you know this
is the best car made!
Cup holders are NOT as good as my
'91; roofline is 1"-2" too high. Needs:
longer hood, sleeker styling (like the
coming Benz CLS), 350 std.
horsepower with 500hp performance
option. These improvements would
make this car a world-beater at a
Because of a decline in Mercedes quality I
traded my trouble proned E class for a new
Lexus LS 430. It's a fantastic car! Only car
I've purchased in 35 years that had zero
defects. Two months later , still zero. Love it.
This auto is one of the best!! Lexus
has done a fantastic job in conyinuing
their pursuit of perfection! Having
owned and driven this car for 9 months
I have a keen idea of just how good
this car is.
Don't do the BMW or Benz until you have
driven this car or you will be sorry
The Nav system is a must and the SMART
KEY is way too cool
