You are in the Lexus GS
What is this discussion about?
Lexus GS 350, Sedan
#1 of 419 New GS350/460
Aug 15, 2006 (6:01 pm)
In my opinion, there needs to be a separate discussion for these upcoming Lexus GS models. They are sufficiently different (engines, Navs, etc) and have enough interest to warrant their own thread. I am specifically looking forward to seeing how the car mags deal with them and how they stack up against the competition.
#2 of 419 New wheels for 2007?
Aug 18, 2006 (9:50 am)
Looks like 2007's might get a new wheel design but it's hard to tell.
#3 of 419 GS350 has arrived

I drove a GS350 yesterday. Wheels (17") are the same as 06. Extra power is nice, but I thought the 300 was adequate. The car I drove had Yokohama tires -- much noisier than the 300 with Dunlops. Cars look exactly the same inside and out. Sticker says 29 highway mpg vs 30 for the 300. MSRP on fully loaded car is about $300 less than the 300.
#4 of 419 No GS460 for 07

There is no GS430 for 07. Why would anyone buy the GS430 over the more powerful and economical GS350

They are already for sale on Lexus Website no other changes other than upgraded engine. My opinion they should have upgraded wheels/suspension to accomodate more horsepower.
Wheels are wimpy compared to ES & IS.
#6 of 419 It is surprising to me that....

the new GS350 is generating so little comment on these boards. If this is any indication of the overall level of interest, we should see prices come off MSRP quickly and significantly.
#7 of 419 Might be because ...

When I went to test drive a GS350 they "lost the keys" ... and could only promise a drive a couple of day later . Go figure, but I guess some people do buy a car without driving it.

One thing that might be going on is that the discussion was only categorized as "Lexus", so if someone was specifically searching for the GS 350, this discussion would not turn up (depending on how they searched). I have corrected that. We don't have a category yet for the 460.
#9 of 419 Pictures of dash?

Does anyone know of a link to a picture of the dash without the nav. system? Thanks
#10 of 419 GS350 VS ES350
Oct 26, 2006 (6:44 pm)
I dont see why people would want to buy a GS350 AWD. Its about 9K more than ES350. Only advantage is that it has AWD and has 30 hp more. Its a smaller car ... rear leg space is cramped ... a big hump between the 2 rear seats .. smaller trunk ... no full size spare option. It does not seem justifiable to me to pay 9k more just for AWD and 30 extra horses with so many other things lacking. Any comments ?
