And guess what...the 17s from the factory that are standard on the GS300....you can have the factory 5 spoke 18s that are standard on the GS430 be put on your GS300! How cool is that?!?!?!

We pickup our GS430 tomorrow in Virginia. Supposed to snow tomorrow so I'm sure I'll have interesting pics.

It's Black w/Black Interior. Nav, runflats, spoiler, etc.

Default A new addition to the family

We traded a 2001 740i sport/convenience imola/black for a new GS300 that was up on the apron. We had actually gone to the agency (Westside Lexus of Houston) to look at a used RX330. No all wheel drives. So, we moved over to a GX470. Nah. While we were being given a tutorial on its options, a Matador Mia Red was being backed up onto the apron after a test drive by someone. I asked what it was and if we could test drive it. Damn! That was Saturday. We called Monday asked if it was still there and if we could buy it rather than wait 3-4 months. We were told 'yes'.

So...2006 Lexus GS300, Matador Red Mica, Cream leather with black leather and wood trim, Levinson/Nav/DVD, Backup Camera, 17" run flats, and enough manuals to start my own public library. We paid MSRP: $50,690.

6. Black Interior

New GS is awesome. I need to put together a review, but let me tell you it is amazing. Handles awesome, so incredibly quiet, engine purrs, so well appointed. Loving it.

It has (copied from the Official Pricing Post)

Mark Levinson w/ Navigation System
Rear Spoiler
Rain Sensing Wipers/Headlamp Cleaners
Power Tilt &Slide Moonroof
Power Rear Sunshade
Ventilated Front Seats
Run Flats


Anyone know if the Intuitive Parking Assist can be added later. It does have the P button and the sonar sensors in the bumper (at least the exterior caps) but it does not show the option in the info screen.

forget what else but we should have it in about 3 months. So sometime around May.

The car to me doesnt look good in pics but when i saw it up close it was a great car. Absolutely stunning up close and in person depending on the color though. Black Onyx is just AMAZING :drool: :drool: :drool: i wanted my father to get black but he didnt want to deal with the hassles of a black car especially after my previous ownership of a is300 black onyx
