The only old LS that I would trade for is the 04-06 LS430. Anything below those years looks dated. The 98-05 GS has aged gracefully over the years.

GS300 only spin tires on black ice or snow :p

Less prep work when racing in a V8 GS400/430. ;) Just hit the gas and you'll beat most things on the road or a respectable loss.

Hold off for a GS400 or Gs430. No reason not to since the mpg is the same as a GS300 and an extra 80+hp. Continue to build funds till you can get one. The V8s are rare but they do pop up for sale...
