Congrats on the 4GS FSport addition to your family! That is great from the factory and still has soooo much potential too! Can't wait to see what you do with it and how this opens up your other options.

Well since I have an abundance of access I was okay with the GS fetish but again this is my wife's car. Which means she will drive to work and when we go anywhere else I'll be driving lol. She loved her RX 400h and the RX 350 F-sport is really awesome but some key features are missing compared to the GS (no adjustable steering, no Mark Levinson, seats are not as adjustable, smaller NAV screen etc etc).

What sold her was the interior and as I've driven/ridden in countless cars the past year it is IMO one of the best interiors at any price level from anyone and the Cabernet red interior is just jaw-dropping to us. She loves it.

Suspension wise I think the GS F-sport handles pretty damn perfect so I don't think I want to do coilovers where I would lose the suspension changes. Plus being her car I don't want it slammed 2+ inches to the ground. If I did lower it I would likely go with Accuair or Airrunner suspension as she can raise, lower the car at will. But I think she would rather not go that route lol.

So we pretty much agreed to the F-sport springs coming this month which will lower it an inch and keep the Sport + mode.

Yes sir, that advice is one to live by lol. We literally had both papers in front of us between the RX and GS F-sport. We had a really laid back time, they had Boston Market for employees so we just ate and relaxed. She could not make up her mind for a few hours lol (#firstworldproblems) She drove them both, looked them over and over. I told her no pressure, whichever one she wanted (though of course I would prefer the GS)

She she texted some friends and they all were like "GS GS GS GS"!!! lol. Again though, the interior IMO really sold her, she loves it and I think is glad to be back driving a car.

I loved how your 3gen GS450h looked, and I know for a fact you aren't gonna disappoint us with this build and can't wait for the finished product!!!
I told her she will clearly be the driver for nights out even more so now. Thanks for the 3GSh compliments, this will also be a clean build and it will be fun to have her input instead of me building my car to my specs.

It is the first GS I've ever driven where I don't even think it needs a STB. It drives that damn good. I don't want to add to much rubber when I add the Vossen's as not to lose some of the fun in trade for traction.

I need to do my review on the FRS as well. Its like the team behind the LFA, IS F revised suspension, FRS, GS all are the same. These new cars from Toyota/Lexus are really drivers cars!

I occasionally take my 80 year-old mom to lunch, and I can leave it in Sport + mode and take the corners and she barely notices. Great choice!

You've now had 3 generations of GS's, right?
Thanks, we hope to enjoy it. Yes GS 400, GS 430, GS 450h, now GS 350 F-sport, the only one not here currently is the GS 400. The seats are fantastic.

Always a pleasure to hear from you! I honestly think handling wise its good to go, would love slightly more power but you know how that goes. More than anything really want to tidy up the looks like we did on the Vossen Project GS and I love IAMJAVDG's GS.

Yeah...to bring it home...lol...she's driving the company car home tonight lmfao

F-sport springs most likely..pretty certain. Maybe a bodykit, maybe black pearl emblems. Would love to have some cross drilled rotors, no need for a BBK here since it has one up front. JDM Fogs, Vossen Precision Series wheels, not sure which one yet.

Oh and tint, she wants TINT asap

I want to point out that the GS350 F-Sport Autoblog reviewed did not have the Rear Steering ( DRS) option.And yet it still drove better than the 535i

Imagine how much more the gulf in performance would have been had the GS been outfitted with the DRS option.

Excellent choice! I agree on how much the rear steer feature sharpens up the handling and makes it much more entertaining. Looking forward to your planned mods.
