Call it greedy but one thing I wouldn't mind is more power. For my wife, she is fine but for me it would be damn near perfect with 50more hp, let alone a 400hp V-8 or something else.

This also is a very engaging drive to most cars out there, if you were blindfolded (if that was possible) I assure you Lexus would be one of the last brands you name. Even at low speeds its "fun".

A couple of things we noticed as some light scratches on the glovebox and trim and I think I see a very tiny dent in the aluminum on one of the doors that dseag warned us about.

I've always been an interior junkie...this interior is just something special....can't stop talking about it.
Nice, looking forward to seeing these with the 285 on the rear

+1 I agree I truly wish there was more hp, but you get to drive your hybrid to make up for the lost power. Can't wait to see them installed.

Yes, I had a dent on the cupholder and the glovebox trim. Sewell Lexus replaced them at no charge during my 5k mile service. I have multiple dents on the driver's side trim, but I haven't even bothered with replacing it because 1) I don't see it when I'm driving and 2) whatever is causing it will cause it again after new trim is installed. The aluminum is fragile, but it is beautiful and at least we know it's real.

And yes, the interior is something special. We have a friend in town this week. We took her to dinner in my GS and she was raving about the color of the leather (Cabernet). Something special indeed. Even in this review of the Acura RLX, which retails for close to $60k, the reviewer says the interior isn't up to the standard of the GS. Doesn't mention MB or BMW... just GS. The comments are at 3:07 in the video.
