Default My New GS, My First Lexus, Yay!

After having leased several Acuras and Infinitis over the last 15 years I'm so happy to be in my first Lexus. I had just one modification in mind. It should be easy to spot.

Congrats!!! There is definitely a curtain magic owning a Lexus. I'm on my third and I really love my GS. Drive her in good health.

The OEM accessory spoiler looks good from that angle. What sort of wheels are those?

The F Sport wheels sure look more spindly in that color.

The wheels are Ace Convex in Matte Black. The F Sport wheels are 19s, these are 20's. I didn't go with the F Sport for two reasons: I don't like the aluminum interior panels (love the dark wood on mine), and Sport + mode wasn't worth the money for the few times a month I'd get to really use it in the canyons.

I almost said those were not F Sport wheels but I couldn't doubt the F Sport guys here and you mentioned you only had one mod. They do look similar to F Sport wheels though. Welcome to the club and Lexus. Acuras are nice but I agree Lexus is different. You will find it's difficult to change now.

Acura styling drove me away, and I'll admit that I miss their Super Handling All Wheel Drive, but that's all I miss. I love the the GS. Not so happy with the Pandora iPhone App, but that's a subject for another time.

Anyway, thanks for all the replies, and I'm really glad to be here!
