I bought a small rear trunk lip on Ebay and it came with 3M tape. Absolutely no problems with a commercial wand wash and also have gone through a regular automated car wash.

That looks fixable.

But if you are buying a replacement, I would lean towards the big LS. The 3GS styling looks good on the front but the back side profile doesn't work for me. Not that the LS...

Well that's why there are two schools of thought on CL and probably other forums. If you modify, tamper or change from factory, you are going to run into issues. Keeping it stock may mean you gotta...

Well gsean that is unfortunate. Looks like you've done a lot trying to fix this. If it helps any, a lot of the Subaru and Chryco owners complain about this same problem too. So you're not alone.

Well if I could go back I suppose that an SC400 would be a great buy, but there are very few of those around. The GS is really a compromise car. It's not going to handle like a 540 or have the...

Oooh, that is quite a conundrum you've got yourself there. I actually have a bit of a soft spot for those older LS400's. You would be gaining ultra smooth ride and V8 power.
