Just got the car yesterday, had to clean it up it got delivered caked in mud. Theres also some smells in the car I'm working to get rid of, started cleaning the leather. Plan on getting new tires tommorow, had to order TPMS because the previous (dealer) must have removed them! $200 just for those which is annoying. It needs a allignment badly but hey I got it for a rock bottom price so these things can be expected.

Ebay! Just search Lexus license plate frames. They have a ton of different F Sport and Lexus ones with ranging prices, colors and quality. I only paid $18 or so for mine!

I like shooting off the line fast and taking turns pretty aggressively, and the AS3's on my IS did not disappoint. Is that the case with the AS3+ on the GS also?

What is your driving style? Did you go with the P7's due to wanting a more comfortable ride? They are considered Touring vs Performance of the AS3's, so driving style has a lot to do with the type of tire you would enjoy.
Normally, I'm pretty sedate. Sometimes I'm the guy passing traffic in the outside lane of a wide turn going 10mph over the limit.

Yep, I went with the P7 tires for comfort and noise. In my very un-scientific opinion: noise=tie; smooth ride=P7 (but only by a very slight margin); performance=AS3+ (they just felt more "connected" to the road).

Cool, good to know. Sounds like I will be going AS3+ sometime next summer.

I see some talk of license plate frames, I just ordered one of these from amazon:

I am thinking to get one but that frame will cover up the tab, not sure if it safe to have. I am looking for a frame with f or Lexus logo on but have cut out at both corner

This afternoon I went back over my GS with Wolfgang Fuzion Wax and wiped off the wheels afterwards.

It will only slightly obscure the corner tags, but definitely still visible.

Are the projectors plug and play? No additional wiring required?

I have these in my GS and I really like them. It's a little tricky switching the lenses but once you do one projector the others are easy.
