Lexus debadged "Lexus" from the 2010+ LS460s (07-09 had Lexus) so I wouldn't say that it is false modesty. It is just a stylistic choice.

One of the practical advantages of debadging includes...

Cough. Except for the navigation lock out as soon as the car starts moving.... :)

Lexus would be 100% if it did that (plus upgrade infotainment).

I would argue that it is also the car audio consumer. With heavy integration of the head unit to the rest of the car and the need for stuff like FLAC, etc, nowadays the best bang for the buck is MS-8...

In early marketing material I remember the claim that it was SPDIF. Looking forward to your build! That's a system that will beat the factory Levinson!

Awesome to know.... the one nice thing with Jeff is CQuartz Finest as an option.

Here is a baseline dyno. The car hit the 130mph speed limiter so it is probably good for 310hp.

The sport supension is adaptive. It allows some body roll but then firms up. With coilovers you can have a stiffer ride with less body roll but you don't get the dynamic element.
