    Fast & Beautiful — Bought it used from Naples FL with only 56K and it is an awesome car. Never really had a true pleasure vehicle before but if I were to buy one again this would be it. We always get the looks like, hey I like that car. No regrets.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Love it with the top down

    Cons: can't think of any at the moment

    Hot Looking -- Very Fast -- Smooth Riding And Great Sound System — This car just makes you feel you and full of energy. As soon as I get in the car you just feel like driving fast and letting the wind blow in your face and turning the music up loud and cruising along the back roads. Really fun around the curves and up and down the hills around Northern CA.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: This is an amazing car but, I travel 48 weeks a year and just don't have time to drive the car.  I have driven it 27,700 miles in 10 years and it needs to be driven.

    Cons: Needs to be driven at least a couple of times a month to keep all of the electronics going.

    Nice Ride - Eat's Tires — I'll probably own this car the rest of my life. In the summer time with the top down - I usually get a couple of comments each week from strangers. It's fun to drive in luxury and still have the sporty look and feel.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A quiet nice driving convertible

    Cons: Eats up tires quicker than the manufacturers ratings

    Nice Car — Acceleration is good but bad for the sports car: 0-60 in 6.1 seconds. braking and handling is okay. Good think about this car is that it is convertible, and has quite sexy and nice apearance. Build quality is just great...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: just to have fun

    Cons: bad performance for sports car

    The Best Of Both Worlds It Is A Classy, Quite Convertible, With Four Seats. — I currently own a silver SC430 it is stunning. It has gorgeous lines and is just a striking car. The convertible hard top is definately the way to go. This car is quiet on the highway, even though it is a convertible. Its' sleak lines will catch your eye and everyone else's, too. It does take premium gas and I get about 25 to 28 miles to the gallon in the city. The V8 is great when you need to get up and go but, it handles quite well just driving around town. The interior is refined, the wood grain gives it a very polished look and feel. No problems with the car, just routine check ups. It is a dream car with the top down or up.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles great and is absolutely stunning.

    Cons: The back seats are not big enough for anyone other than small children to sit for an extended length of time.

    Excellent Price/value — Lexus know how to put together a hard top convertible. Too bad for scouts and cycling.

    Pros: Great performance. Enough room for two with all the gear. Rear seat is great storage for luggage when top is down.

    Cons: Nagging little screws behind the bucket seats. Uneven wear of front tires (can be addressed by dismounting and remounting the front tires every 2 rotations). Small trunk but it is expected. Aerodinamics are great even at speed with top down your hair stays in place.
