Lexus LS 430, Sedan
#11 of 35 2004 LS 430

A reply to Diamond - I was in the same boat as you. My 200 Lexus was up on June 24th. I asked the leasing company for a 3 month extention - they only gave me a 6 month or 12 option. After speaking with my dealer - the leasing company agreed to extend my lease to 3 months so I would be ready to buy the 2004 LS 430. Hope you can do the same.

You can say that again!

Nice car!!! It looks like Lexus may be going back to the beefy straight finished dual-exhaust tips like original LS, nice touch.
A while back I heard a rumor that Lexus was developing a V-12 for the future LS? Any news?

#17 of 35 SAT radio in LS 430
Aug 25, 2003 (12:03 pm)
FYI, my dealer confirmed for me today that the sat radio service will be XM. I have test driven BMW and their's is Sirrus. I prefer XM because I already have it in my Denali and the stations have more variety. Also...if you already have one XM sat radio, the second is only $5-$6 more a month. I like XM so much I am thinking about getting it for the house and replacing my DSS. There is a noticeable difference in sound quality between regular FM radio and the SAT. Once you experience it you will never buy a car without it.
Keep the info coming on the 2004.

I have been waiting, reading and watching for almost a year. I almost bought a 2003. When do you think we can get prices on the 2004? I live in Chicago metro area about 6-7 dealers around. I do have some contacts around the country if it would pay to shop.

#20 of 35 New 2004 Lexus LS 430

I have been searching and searching for accurate info about the 2004. Everywhere is almost void of info including Lexus' own site. BUT, the latest Car & Driver has a two page ad with a beautiful photo. It is amazing how Lexus can keep secrets until they are ready. Most of the forecasts until the last two weeks were well off with predications of a major body change. New model looks nice but most people will not see a difference, Good or bad?
