Unhappy End of the road for my 2GS and I

Sadly the time has come to move on from my 2GS to a new ride. I was planning on staying with Lexus and had been looking for a LS460 and found a few nice ones. But a 420HP M56 was too nice and too much fun for me to pass up. I am going to miss my 2GS once she is actually gone.

I have had a great time with my 2GS and enjoy helping out others and the forum when I can. I am pretty sure I will be sticking around for a while yet even after I sell the 2GS.

Here is the new beast.

Man that 420 hp sounds good, but I still think the GS looks a lot better

Talk about wolf in sheeps clothes.
I would've never guessed that has 420hp. Looks like it has 200 horses max.

Surprising, I know.

From the outside I agree. The 2GS is high on my list of favorite car designs. I do like the muscular look of the M too though and the interior is MUCH nicer. The wheels need to go though.

Sure. Its just too bad everything comparable from Lexus has 100 less horsepower and most likely a 6 cylinder. I probably would not have strayed from mama Lexus if she had something similar to offer. A brand new GS-F has 6HP more then my 2002 GS has. Honestly that kind of bothers me.

I feel like so many of the newer Infiniti's offer so much bang for your buck lately

Hard to argue with those numbers!

I think the 4 door that we all are waiting for is the GS-F that will hopefully be announced soon!
Around 500 HP!

Thanks for all you help on the forum too!
Enjoy your new ride.

Yes, it will be cool once Lexus makes A real GS-F. And as always I am happy to help.

I have not had time to take pictures and list it anywhere. I don't think I will have time until next week but I will probably put it up here.
