Default Value of Executive Package on used 460's ?

I was wondering if the Executive Package 2 person rear seating with the solid rear centre console, massage seat, etc increases or decreases the resale value of a LS460L

I have not been able to see a difference in ebay pricing and wondered if, when any of you are trying to trade or sell your 460 L with the Executive Package if it was more or less in demand than the three person rear seat, and why if any value was given or deducted from a two passenger rear seat car?

It goes both ways..I have seen people get great deals on them because they can be hard to sell. .folks don't always want to give up the fifth seating area. But of there is one that is in great condition and people want one, they can get some good money for one. ..it's situational IMO

it won't help on value. it's more msrp when new, but bottom line you lose a seat and in the long run it doesn't really help on resale. not to mention more components, more electronics, more chances of breaking

Brotha, long time no chat! How you doing ? WHat you driving these days? You were the inspiration back in the day in the SC/GS forums for me, and helped me out a lot. Just giving a shout out and thanks


Agree 100% and that is what I have been seeing on the used market.

Which bodes well for a used purchaser like me who wants the Executive Seat package in the rear... hehe

I just did a KBB comparison and having one without Exec Package and one with it, the difference was about $3,500 more for the Exec Package equipped 600. Sad because that was a $12K+ package new but with all things, they sometimes lose their value..but $3500 is $3500...good for seller I suppose

yes, the exec package imho can be a good buy now given the weak resale market due to the 4 seat configuration

Executive Package is definitely cool. If in otherwise outstanding condition. the price is within an acceptable range. I've enjoyed driving it and being chauffeured. What I don't particularly like is the roof drop down screen...it blocks the driver's rear view. Should have screens mounted in the front seatback or on the front seat center console rear a/c vent housing. I have a waiting list of folks claiming, "dibs" should I decide to sell it. Despite all the rhetoric, I've only spent money on oil changes and 60K maintenance in 3+ years.
