That interior is gorgeous. I wish that option was available when I ordered mine.

I was going to order a Black on Black but when I heard the 14's could be ordered with a different color interior, I changed to the White/Flaxen interior color. I love the black interior also.

harleybob,

I was told 60 to 90 days, once ordered. Mine is going to be close to 70- 90 days.


SW13GS, Yep, should be here soon. Thanks

14LSSport, I was torn between the Flaxen and the black int. About a week deciding. Then I stoped at the dealership and they had a two tone black and brown interior . Brown on top of the door panels and brown around the console. I was hooked. I also have a tan color interior now time for a change for me. But that Flaxen is beautiful. Great choice.

That Black and Brown looks great too. I've had black interiors for a good while now. Time to change it up, the Flaxen looks great. Can't go wrong with either. You only have two color choices in the F-Sport. lol

How do find the ride? Is it hard with the stiffer suspension and bigger rims? How do you like it over all? What else did you consider or test drive? Thanks. Regards. Ned.

Just beautiful. Make sure you upkeep the leather on the steering wheel and gear shift to prevent deterioration. Otherwise -- WOW!

Thanks guys,

ngerstman, I won't know until I get my hands on it in Jan.

I test drove a 13 LS 460 for about 4 hours before I test drove the LS F-sport.

I test drove a 13 LS 460 F-Sport for about 30 minutes before I ordered a 14. I thought the ride was fine.

Tested:
13 Audi A7 & A7S
13 Audi SQ5
13 Lexus GS 450h
13 Mercedes E550
13 Mercedes GLK
13 Hyundai Equus
14 Range Rover Sport HSE
I traded a 12 Range Rover Sport Supercharged (510hp, AWD) Autobiography in for the 14 LS F-Sport. Great ride, to many electronic gremlins for me. Seems like they fixed them in the 14 model. My 12 RRS was like 89 K new, new 14 RRS like my 12 was a 105K. Ouch. But, frame is now made out of aluminum and 14 is 700 lbs lighter and 1 sec faster 0-60 mph. I think 4.9 secs, that's impressive. Motor is a Ford 5.0L with TVS Supercharger.
My Lexus will cost less to maintain and last forever.


jlawr, thanks for the tip. I got all the good stuff for detailing. All my rides stay clean 99% of the time.

Car will stay in garage, I will only drive the car in the evenings after work, weekends, trips.

My DD is my F-250, It's a blast to drive. Fuel mileage is not so good , with my foot in it all the time.
I can get 19-20 mpg, if I don't drive it too hard.
