Default Finally joined the club!

Picked it up about a week ago. 15 Fsport with about 26k miles. Traded my 06GS430 in at 234k miles after 9 years of faithful service. Been too busy driving to take too many pictures.

This forum was great for research on deciding to go 15 over 14, and ultimately not waiting for a 16. Thanks everyone!

Congrats on GS... exactly like mine! The only thing I don't see parking sensors. Does GS come without them?

you can get the 15 without them. I thought they came standard, but Im not missing them. I think it looks cleaner without them.

Nice car. Just curious what did they give you for your trade in? I have an 02 GS300 with 273,000 miles but figured they would have zero interest

carmax offered 1500 and the dealer I purchased from gave $1711. Can ran perfectly fine, but had a number of Cosmetic issues. Im sure its going to auction at a rock lot.

Came super close to going with that exact car without the sensors for the exact same reason. With white, I think it looks way cleaner without the sensors so good choice. Ended up with black which hides the sensors much better so I was fine with them.
