2011 RWD. Costco 91 octane. Penzoil 0w-20. Car with 53k miles.

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

The best thing about the K900/Equus is that it'll push Lexus to re-innovate and do more.

you can use plasti dip which is reversible. the advantage of darker rims is that brake dust is less visible.

Our air suspension is adaptive which may mean that it firms up the front when braking and rear when accelerating (which would then cause the rocking if your suspension is broken).

I saw the TL as the ES competitor, the RLX as the GS competitor and the TLX as the IS competitor.

Kia Cadenza as ES competitor.
Hyundai Genesis as GS competitor. Equus and K900 as LS competitor.

It's hard to have a luxury car that's FWD. The torque steer makes the car feel less refined. Additionally, the RL/RLX never had the same fit and finish as it's closest competitors.

I don't think Lexus brought 19" to the LS non-L until 2010, so the cycle of people changing tires + AS3's has been somewhat small. (And the LS isn't a high volume car like the GS or RX).

if it's a new engine, it's probably even better. If the engine was due to die at 300k miles and your car had a replacement at 30k, it's resetting the clock.
