Still Nice! — Everything works even at 169,000 miles.... simple things like the buttons are not falling off like most other cars. Very dependable, I still get 25mpg Hwy and 21mpg city. Its monry well spent for me, I am loving it like "mcdonalds"

Pros

Great ride, power, gas mileage, and looks.

Cons

Could stand a little more power, more durable seats, better sound system.  Needs
standard HID headlamps.

Best Riding Car I Have Ever Owned. — This car has a great balance of power, handling, and comfort. It rides like you're on a cloud and the seats are super comfortable, but the leather could stand to be a little more durable. Great engine, shared with the Toyota Supra (no turbos though, which would have been an awesome improvement). Handles well but with a little excess body roll at higher speeds but that's to be expected with a big luxo-boat. Gauges are very easy to read and comfortable to look at at night, sound system is subpar at best, coud stand a speaker upgrade and possibly subs. HID Xenon headlights should be standard, halogens are just OK.

Cons

Tad on the floaty side. Id prefure a bit stiffer for handling.

Lexus Gs 300 — Great sedan for those who dont want to forgo performance for 4 drs. Never had any problems. Everything worked as should. Paid less for it than people were paying to lease their civics and got my heated seats sunroof and leather. Never made any mods but the car was peppy considering the weight. Was always a bmw guy and this was one of the closest alternative to the 5 searies in terms of performance

Best Car Ever Had — suspension is alloy so got to be careful when taking turns, make sure you get 430 because gas milage is almost the same but GS300 lacks power. definitely fun to drive, very comfortable. Always get electrical parts from dealership, other wont wok
