As you know, August was a minor change from a 5 new LS, I will begin taking orders.
I LS600h hybrid designs vary greatly in the front.
Design is likely pros and cons, HS, and I grill, I might REKUSASUHAIBURIDDO will be designed like this.
LED headlights are still cool in the eyes ROBIMU 3.
However, because the openings at the bottom of the bumper is a rectangular design is personally disappointing.
Meanwhile, LS460 VER.SZ and IS-F sports such as mesh-type grill

Now Sunday, August 2 in the morning's speed SURUGA RX350 is scheduled to be completed so as not to face scarf! My afternoon at the dealer Saturday, August 8 meeting of the formula will be delivered.
IS-F now and I just drive.

I'm not liking the Acura-like grill. I hope that's not it.

Oh lord no. . What is Lexus thinking? That grill doesnt even look good on the HS. It looks waaayyy worse on the LS. I cant believe that this grill will be on every new Hybrid. GSh and RXh with this grill will look hideous!!

Nah, this LS grill doesnt look that much like the Acura grill, but Lexus dealerships will probably start painting and switching them out like the Acura dealerships have done with the TL.



IMO the HS grill and Acura grills are a closer resemblance (of course with stand out differences, but I see some similarities). Gaping hole on the bottom, ugly chrome silver crap on the top. Both have the same bottle opener effect.

That looks like crap. Please tell me that is a PS. I will faint if that's the real thing.
