What is this discussion about?
Lexus LS 460, Sedan
#1404 of 3322 Plenty of pix plus the 9" monitor
Jan 12, 2006 (6:02 pm)
Don't know if anyone linked this but this site has a lot of pix plus the only shot I saw of the 9" rear monitor - scroll down about midway. Looks like that may be the option or standard equipment on the LS. Based on other reads though it would seem the LWB gets monitor options in both head rests instead. Don't know if that 9" flipdown would interfere with the inside rear view mirror or not. Looks like it might.

I am not sure if it has been mentioned before but it appears that the LS460 does *not* have body side proctective molding. Is this a new Toyota design thing? as the new Avalon does not have the body side moldings either.
So [nexuslexus] could you please post some exterior pics.

I'm assuming it's an issue with the percentage of folks who sign up and keep the LL active. If there's no profit in it, they'll drop it usually. I've been told that LL is a corner in the On-Star building with dedicated Lexus Employees who man it in Detroit. Perhaps the number of calls they get is poor as well. Frankly though, I'm surprised they dropped it as well, as OnStar seems to be catching on more.

I'll give you the profit angle, that makes sense, unfortunately. But surely their decision wouldn't be based on call numbers. I mean, I rarely use mine either but that 's hardly the point, is it? It's all about the fact that it's there...peace of mind, you know?! Well worth the $400 or so per year, in my opinion.

the trend among all manufacturers seems to be away from mody side protective moldings (with a few exceptions: RL, M, etc). Not sure why this is, except that beauty won out over practicality; however, even being careful, you can expect a load of parking lot dings before long. I have a nearly ten year old BMW 528 with body side moldings, and while it has endured some hits, it is amazing to me, after nearly 140K, how good the body still looks. I am sure I would not be able to say that without the moldings.
