Default Just Picked Up A '13 LX570!!!

Sup CL Gang!
Just picked up a brand new LX570! Got a good deal too, $6,000 off a MSRP of $91,000. I ended up paying $95,968 OTD all fees included. Payed full cash upfront since I didn't want to deal with payments. I finally can divide my commute miles between 2 cars and the RX wont feel alone at night. I only have one pic for now I'll post more next weekend.

Looking good - congratulations! Silver? Or is it the "champagne" color? The lighting makes it harder to tell. Then again, come to think of it, I think the champagne color was discontinued 1 or 2 model years ago, together with the hideous blue. Enjoy!

How do you get them in the garage parked like that?

They are looking very nice. Do not forget to spread some love on the RX

How do you open the driver side door of the RX? Actually, how do you open the doors for both SUV's? That is one tight garage space!

No kidding! That photo reminds me of that car commercial where the guy parks in a super tight space and then crawls out through the rear. There doesn't appear to be any space for he driver or passenger to open the door

Congrats on the new car! I love that color, although I'm biased since I have the same color in the 09 LX.

I didn't want to ask...

Also, funny how tiny the RX looks next to the LX. I've had that arrangement in my garage before whenever my car is at the dealer.

I don't, I just wanted to see how tight it is so I can get an idea of what I need to get rid, I had to actually get out if trunk, lol.

Thanks man, it feels tiny to drive too.

In other news I found out how to have both my cars stay in the garage and still be able to adequately open the door so I can get in, I have to park both at a tilt see...

It's been almost 3-1/2 months and I took for her first service yesterday. My salesman was like you're back quick, lol. I've been loving it my only complaint at this point is I wish the we had a 30gal gas tank so I could get 450ish out of tank. Right now I've got about 340-350 til when the low fuel light comes on.
