Neither of those are appealing...actually trying to decide which of those I'd rather have less than the other.

I disagree I like the style and power of both of those cars. To each his own...

I think it shows that everyone has upped their games, and there are more alternative to 4 door luxury sedan.

Hyundai Genesis looks pretty good, and so is KIA K900. Maybe these are not direct comparison to LS500, but these are cheaper, and tbh I do not go "Wow!" over LS500.

2008-2012 Toyota Land Cruiser or another low mile LS430. I would also consider a low mile rust free 1998-2000 LS400 with the wood grain steering wheel and HIDs. Neither my 1998 Land Cruiser with 250K miles, nor my 2006 LS430 with 230K have been to a mechanic in 8 years, With Techstream and ability to do a few *fun* diy maintenance projects, I enjoy quite a few good chuckles with my coworkers and their car woes(and worse, financial pitfalls). I did look at LS460s and like them, but parts are still abundant for all of these 1998-2006 cars. 2008+ Land Cruisers are Lexus quality trim in every way, but don't have the air suspension system crutch. Also, Land Cruiser was designed by Toyota to have a 25 year service life instead of the ~10 year quality you normally see.

I also own 1998 LC! Mine has 240K miles. When the time come, I definitely will replace my LC with another LC or Lexus LX, most likely 200 series. For our need the combination of LS430 and LC is the best combo that we ever had (we always have two cars). To have a third car (convertible) for weekend sunny drive would be perfect, but sadly I only have a two car garage. Maybe one day...

Apology that I digress, lets go back to discussion at hand but had to give a shout out to another LC owner
