A stock one look lame and clearly not exclusive enough for you though, but if you Novitec'd it out, is not too bad. And you can get the leather in any shades of red you want.

I agree, the kid will never be late for kindergarten!

I have yet driven a 4GS because it only got a V6. I probably will have motivation to drive the GS-F if it indeed got a V8

He's also got the GSh, IS350 and dying ES300 which all use V6's. Perhaps time for something new?

Haha there it is! When I initially responded to your first comment I thought or rather associate everytime I see your SN with high hp cars which is why the V6 Cayenne comment threw me for a loop

Enough hp is a requirement, but cylinder count is the most important

None whatsoever. So far as reliable as my LS, of course not nearly as many miles. It's been off the road since December with the way this weather has been.

Only a V-6...306hp is more than 95% of the cars on the road and rated more hp than your LS 430, which does have more torque. My wife finds it fine and that is who the car is for in case you missed that fact. If the GS 450h here offered an F-sport like in Europe, we would have went with that. The GS F arrives next summer and it will be in the garage since I'm vetting her now Let the people here complain about it only having 485hp like they complain the GS 350 only has 306hp.

Congrats! Glad to hear the news.

So its not an X5 or a RR Sport and it has to be comfortable with a spacious ride...and available with a red interior. This is a toughie. The fact that you wanted rear seat controls makes it even more tough.

I'm stumped. A full-size Range Rover or Jaguar XJ make sense but you mentioned you wanted to good reliability. Give me a hint and tell me which criteria your ordered car didn't meet.

Congratulations. You don't have to have an SUV or van since you have a kid now but rear seat room is a must regardless of what you buy.

Since we have an "empty nest" now and my daughter has been driving her own car for the last 4 years I want a 2 door coupe.

#2 is trunk size... how about this? That's a 60" TV into the back of an S4.



I think you got an Audi. A6 or S6? Or SQ5?
