A pano roof, sleeker led headlights and a bit more modern rear end with led robotic looking tail lights would look cool. Not black trim pieces. No thanks. And the red and black interior makes it look like it's trying to be a ricer IS250 off of fast and furious or something ghetto.

I actually love the red/black interior. Not a fan of the mirrors and door handles though.

Yeah, me too. But the thing I love the most is being able to get the black striated wood with the F Sport package. Maybe we can just get the dealer to paint the door handles and mirrors.

You hid that Easter egg well. Getting ready for GS-F awesomeness. Would you replace the LS with one of these? Hope the baby is healthy and happy. Ours is almost sleeping through half the night! :/

Besides if I want to upgrade I won't do it in the first year model change. I'll wait til the second year
production.
Red with the Flaxen interior coming for Halloween!
Great. Why not the F Sport? You get 90% of the luxury with a healthy helping of performance to boot.

With regards to this new Lexus model at the LA Auto Show in November, I'm guess a no-go on the GS F making an apperance?

Yes, it's the new generation (gen 8?) system that's in the IS, GX, and CT. I read the '15 ES is getting it too.

What does the new generation multi-media system have that the old one doesn't?

I believe the Gen 8 system uses an SD Card that you buy and pop in for navigation upgrades instead of an Activation Card and Hard Drive that is required for the upgrade. The dealer is the only one who can upgrade your navigation system with the current Gen 7 system - I assume with the SD Card you can buy it online and pop in the new one sort of like the way the old DVD systems worked.

Also - the Gen 8 system in the IS offers natural language input for destination - so instead of saying the city, then the street, then the house number you can just say "123 Main Street, New York, NY" and it would accept it.

Not sure if there are any other features in Gen 8 that are new.

As correctly noted, with gen 8 the voice commands are much improved, even including control of Enform ("launch Bing" or "launch Pandora" for example) and one line address inputs. Your cell battery and signal strength are displayed. You have birds eye view and 3D buildings. You can split the screen in a number of different ways, and overall I find control much easier. Traffic and weather are subscription free, and free for life (comes over HD Radio instead of XM).

Updates, despite being on SD cards, are still done at the dealer.

Thanks for making my 1 month old 2014 feel so outdated
