I've driven a 570 many times. The brake pedal feel is pretty much the same as the 470. A normal Toyota truck feel, you come to expect (and appreciate).

And no, it is no Ferrari, Lamborghini or...

Sounds like your central diff did not disengage? The VCS OFF is the result of it. Try pressing the center diff button and driving (straight, not turning for 20-50 seconds).

Sometimes these stick,...

About 10-year cycle actually, at least if you consider the previous two generations. Can't wait to see what is coming out next as well. Will be glad to see the current 570 go and hoping Toyota will...

yeah, that's hard to do on the 570. Not something that can be done back and forth easily. Better off leaving it as-is.

I think too many of the previous Lexus owners did not like it and did not upgrade waiting for the next gen. The numbers reflected it.

You're welcome.
The 97 is the last year for the LX450. Great vehicle, but different. The LX470 starts from 98 and on.

Get it to look good again, go back to 450/470 style. Make it a better off-roader again, go back to 450/470 style. Make it more upscale, go back to 470 again. Make the interior much nicer than it is...
