Didn't realize it. That's awesome!

One of these with a CPO could possibly be such a fantastic long-term car.... especially with Lexus' reliability.

This isn't a huge issue anymore. Most German car dealers have dealt with this on a regular basis. Hell, I met the owner of an indie German shop up in Maine and he told me that he can do them in less...

A pearl white GS350 AWD FSport sounds like a fantastic DD.

In my area, the transaction prices of an A6 are close to the equivalent F10. For example, if I were to buy a loaded 535xd or A6 TDI, the MSRP on the Audi is slightly lower, but the BMW comes in about...

Lexus GS-F shown with 467hp. M5 killer? Nope

This is a good point, but my biggest gripe is the engine. You don't see BMW taking the M4's V6T and throwing it into the 5 and calling it an M5. It uses a bespoke V8TT. Same with Audi and the RS6. It...

My local ZipCar lot has an Accord Hybrid that uses the same dual screen setup as the new Acuras and it is junk. Never works right

Lexus does it better.

I wonder if someone could photoshop the headlights and get rid of the ridiculous space between the DRLs and headlights. That might fix the front end a little.

The color is amazing though :thumbup:

I'm looking at RC-F pricing compared to the M4, and they're about on par. There's no reason to think this will be about the same price as the M5 or slightly less.

Mostly loaded, they're both about...

What's the build date on your X5? Post 10/10 adds combox, so you can use the Usb cable that give you with the iPhone.

If it is before that, you need the Y-cable + lightening adapter. Huge PITA.

Nope, this is incorrect. The rolling change for the LED Angel Eyes happened sometime in mid-April 2011. The early LCI 2011 E70s had the old amber colored ones. My 04/11 build-date LCI MY11 X5d got...

It's not a bad engine, but the 3.2 is prone to carbon build-up. I'd highly suggest you spend the extra money and get the S5, especially with the 3.0T. It's that much better.

There is no way. He might have had some traction problems. Off the line, the 335d might be quicker, but as the speed builds up, a 550i will demolish a 335d. It's not even on the same level.

VW Pheton is also a prime example of this.
