Yes, Sirius is now available for the 2006 GS. I declined XM in my GS300 back in
late May and indicated I wanted to wait for Sirius that was scheduled to be
available by Aug 1. I talked to my Dealer last week and parts manager has
ordered Sirius parts for my GS. If you go to www. lexus-parts.com go to
GS430/300 parts and find the part numbers for the GS Sirius and order if you
want. I understand the Sirius antenna will be mounted inside on the windshield
glass behind the rear view mirror. Sounds like a much better placement then on
the side of the trunk (XM). There is no way I would put a 3"x3" black XM antenna
there (Silver GS). The Sirius antenna is stated to be a new more powerful one
even though it will be much smaller and thinner. I have had Sirius in the past
and have missed it. Hope to have my Sirius installed in the next few wks.

I try and avoid commenting on vehicle styling, since its such a subjective matter, but I stopped by the Lexus dealership today.... the new GS has to be one of the most beautifully designed vehicles on the road, inside and out. It is simply stunning, leading me to comb through the incredibly well done brochure several times...
Congrats to the new owners, I wish you many enjoyable miles!!

Thanks Alpha, when I saw the GS3 for the first time on the dealer lot I nearly lost it, I said that car is just gorgeous, and I had just come from the Infiniti dealer. I was gonna go infiniti, lexus, bmw and pick 1 but after the GS3 I stopped, it swept me off my feet, now I have a black one

Hopefully you didn't "lose it" in front of the dealer - doesn't usually bode well for a great deal.

You're 100% right, I did not lose it in front of the salesman, just in front of my wife when we parked to go look at it.

I currently have a GS400 and was interested in the new GS430, but wanted an AWD car. Does anyone know when/if the GS430 will be offered in the AWD setup?

Actually, the Smart Access Key only transmits RF data in the following situations:
1.) A button is pushed.
2.) The key moves within sensor-range of the vehicle's low-frequency transmitters.
When the vehicle is parked, it (not the key) broadcasts a very low-power, low-frequency polling signal. If a Smart Key enters the detection range (only a few meters at best), the key will communicate back. Once the handshakes and security authentications are done, the vehicle stops polling and the key goes back to sleep.
