Thai at Lindsay sounds like my kind of guy. I am also friends with Bob who is a manager in their Collision Center. I am lucky to live within 25 miles of 3 Lexus dealerships.
Your new ride looks great btw Moonlite.
I actually had a good experience at Pohanka. I dealt with an older woman named Sally and to me she was very good to me. The salespersons name is at Lindsay is Thai Tran. Give him a call and see what he can do for you based on what we paid.

Anyway, just curious as to what other vehicles you either came from or considered prior to choosing the GX. I would most likely opt for a 2014 LR4 but you can't hardly find them, Very limited inventory right now. I am curious to see the size of the GX in person. We really love the size of the LR4.
So I don't highjack this thread, I sent you a PM.

Thanks Pat! I read some of Thai's reviews and he sounds like the kind of salesperson I prefer to deal with. It was not Sally I met at Pohanka. Now the question is to order the colors I want or wait and see what is around in April/May when I was planing on purchasing.

Thai is very easy to deal with fr my experience. First, I emailed him and asked to match the deal with Pat he said no problem later on a manager at Lexus of Rockville gave me a better deal, I called Thai and told him: "I am ready to order a car in Rockville". After 2 minutes of waiting to check with his manager to match the price; they said ok come over sign the order.

I went to Pohanka they're prefer to sale a car on their lot than order. It wasted my time.
I called Lexus of Silver Spring their price was too high.

I would call him and ask to match my deal if you can wait like me.

Good luck with your deal

I purchased my first GX at Pohanka and it was an okay experience. The service department was

So, realized I did not get the exhaust tip and Club Sewell has 2 different ones, $70 and $105.

http://lexus.sewellparts.com/accesso...X460-2014.html

The only difference I see is straight tip or angled. Which do people like?

I just went through this. I ordered the angled one thinking that was the only difference. In fact it's larger and actually oval than the flat circle one for less money. I like it and kept it.

Wow this thread is taking on so many different directions.

I personally like the $70 one which is what I have. The $105 one looks like the F-Sport exhaust tip which is oval. I have seen it in person and I like the regular one myself.

Good info though! I had that on my order wish list as well. I will order it from CS instead. Now what to do about the trailer hitch?

Ordering exactly what I want sounds the way to go then. I would rather wait a few months and get what I want at a good deal since I keep my vehicles 8-10 years.
Thank you both for the info. Should I tell him Pat and Moonlight sent me.
