Default Flint Mica LS430s

Hi Everyone,
Since I got my awesome 430 (thanks to everyone's great advice on here), I have only posted 2 dealer shots. I thought that I would post a few more of my car. Moreover, I am planning to have this be an official thread for all Flint Mica LS430s. Owners of other colors feel free to do this as well. I feel this will help those who are considering different colors for the LS430. The quality is poor since I took these with my phone (no legit camera ). Thanks again everyone and enjoy!

Here is where I normally park during school. Nice and secure, and of course at the end spot

Yep - made me smile - the all too familiar LS 430 end spot parking job : ) Hey this way we all get a little more exercise.

Agreed! I am always on the 3rd floor, extreme end spot. I spend probably 5 mins more each time but it's well worth it! Plus, we get to admire our cars for a bit longer as well trek to our parking spots in another zip code

At work, I sprung for an interior wall reserved spot so I would know my neighbors and be protected from the elements. With any unreserved spot, I never knew what mullet-wearing mouth-breather would squeeze in next to me.

Nice looking car. I have seen a few flint mica's around lately and I always look twice... well maybe three times! My wife hates when we take my LS because she KNOWS it will be parked in a spot far far away!!!

It's just the angle of the pics. I still have several inches (enough for me to comfortable walk around the front). I do get it close to the wall as I don't want the rear to stick out too far. Ppl aren't very good drivers here and they will hit you and just leave...

LOL! Yep I am the same way. I swing it over the spot a bit too so you can open the door wide open and not even cross the space next to me. An FJ cruiser normally parks next to me with repectable room so I am definitely safe! I did notice I have 2 dings on the driver's side (not very noticeable) so I hope to god I don't get any more lol.

PS: Add some pics of that gorgeous 430 you have!

Thanks! Yours looks awesome as well, still can't get over how sweet of a deal you got! I already saw a 430 photo thread, though you are still more than welcome to add pics of your ride here!
Hehe I avoid taking the LS out if a lot of ppl are coming just so I don't inconvenience them as I, like you, will park so far away you need binoculars to see my car.

Took a few more as the sun was setting. I just washed the car today so it was shiny

I apologize in advance for the lack of quality and talent in these photos

Also, feel free to post up a pic of your ride! Don't worry if it isn't flint mica...maybe I can change the title of the thread?

Sorry, no new pics. The car is a bit dusty, but I didn't get a chance to wash it today. I try to time my fall clay and zaino session for a sunny day when the trees by our lake access have turned colors. That's a good time for pics.

Your car is looking great.
