    Let's start with the Ford Escort's headlights.

    Oh and look at the bottom of the doors, it's an Audi S4 :ugh:. Rear looks like the Accord sedan and side kinda looks like a BMW.

    The aluminum in the middle looks like an after thought.

    ha, I was JUST searching for pics of it :big grin:

    looks nice... not quite as "stunning" as the GS400 was in 1998... but I still think it's a gorgeous design..

    however, I DO NOT like Lexus' use of hard lines in their new designs... like the GX470, RX330.... I REALLY prefer the organic shapes like those of the ES300 and SC430 :drool:

    but oh well... I don't work for em... but maybe I can change that one day :wiggle:

    Front looks too much like an accord and it looks to big and sedan like, and less sporty. But i'd still rock one.

    ok, this is VERY picky, but I HATE it on EVERY car I see it on... I can't STAND it when the decklid is recessed into the rear cover...

    Exterior looks nice to me, but no new engine? Its falling behind the 5 series...

    BMW now has a 545i, and Lexus has no answer to that? much less the E39 M5, and even much much less the E60 M5.

    Lexus better have something brewing for the large sport sedan market.

    The current GS generation was leaps and bounds over the old 97's generation, but as far as the powertrain goes... the new one doesn't seem to hold squat on the current generation... =/
