I dunno anything about Town Car, but I am willing to bet money for the same price range, the quality and reliability is not comparable to LS430.

Maybe it is just me but I am not seeing the appeal for this ultra low miles. We are talking about mass produced LS430, not some limited produced LFA. For $18K, I bet I can have more fun with two $9K...

What is the weight difference between 16' vs 17' vs 18' ? I'd guess that 16' wheel weight significantly less than 18', so maybe the steering wheel is a bit lighter/more responsive?
