I moved on. My gs350 lease was up in February and the Gs-f at its current price was a non starter. But I needed to replace my gs and wasn't interested in another gs350. Wanted something with a...

Thanks. Good suggestion. It's not an f sport. Yeah, my previous car was a 335i and I was lucky if I got 12k out of my tires on that car, so it was a pleasant surprise these lasted as long as they...

Lease end turn in question: Tires?

I'm coming up to the end of a 30K/36 mo lease on my GS and will be turning it in a few weeks. The car still has the original tires on it. The fronts are in pretty good shape, but after 29K miles,...

Problem is, it's not always just the irresponsible driver that ends up getting hurt or killed.

I do worry about how easy it has become to get access to absolutely insane amounts of power. 20...

If you really HAVE to have one now, you'd be better served to "build your own lease" through a long payment term finance deal. Assuming good credit, you could borrow $88k for 72 months at 3% and...

Holy cow! So you pay $72k over the course of 4 years and STILL have another $48k to go at lease end. They're either including a giant dealer markup or charging a money factor with a double digit...

Speaking for myself, it's not the comparison to the 450h, it's the comparison to the 550i and S6. For me, the GS-F is not worth $10-$20K more than those two (assuming dealers won't budge on GS-F...

I just received a call from my dealer that they have received their first GS-F but that it is already sold. He said they have an allocation of 6 more coming but that he expects all to sell before...

For me I think it's almost the opposite. For people who are going to track their car, the responsiveness and linear power delivery of the GS-F's naturally aspirated, high revving V8 will probably...

I think it all depends on what you're looking for. I wonder what percentage of GS-F owners, or E63 or CTS-V or M5 owners will ever take their car on a track. I'd bet the percentage is really low. ...

Not putting any money down when leasing doesn't mean no upfront cash. Most lease deals require the first month's payment + a refundable security deposit + fees. Your friends are correct that you...

I'll definitely give it a test drive. My problem is threefold though.

1) $85K+ is a LOT of money for a car and I struggle with dropping that much cash for ANY car. So even outside of any...

Yeah, and I can configure a $52K Porsche Boxster to be $106K by going crazy checking all the boxes. Like Porsche, but to a much lesser degree, MB allows a much greater level of random options and...

I'd be interested to see your build because on the E63, you can't get to $110K unless you select the exterior carbon package or ceramic brakes... or by adding an "illuminated star", heated rear...

As far as the E63, outside of ceramic brakes and carbon fiber exterior/engine cover, there really aren't that many options... pano roof for $1K, driver assistance for $3K (or just blind spot/lane...

I can see another $2K for ML + calipers bringing the loaded cost to $87K. But I read a separate article that said that Lexus is only planning to bring 2,000 units to the US. I'm guessing there...

I REALLY want one after reading that. Unfortunately, if the ~$85K base price is correct and Lexus will only be bringing 2,000 units to the US, I bet you'll have to pay every bit of that $85K, if not...

I think it all depends on where they price it. Yes, you're correct that 467hp is a lot. But if the GS-F is priced to compete against the M5/E63 (I can't imagine it will be), 467hp, or more...

Why would you think that? There was an IS-F and it was over 3,800 lbs. The current IS F Sport is ~3,600 lbs with a V6, so dropping in a V8 is going to add to that. And I'm pretty sure the 467 hp...

That would be unfortunate. If that ends up being the case, I guess the good news for future GS-F owners is that their vehicle will be "rare".

A 550i starts at $64.9K. So you can can get a nicely equipped 550i in the mid-70's. It won't be loaded, but it won't be a "base with absolutely no options".

It's also going to depend on how they price it. If it's in the low- to mid-70's nicely equipped, it could be interesting. If it's mid-80's nicely equipped (as some in this thread have suggested),...
