    bad gas mileage, insurance is high, it's small, girly, etc.

    get a manly man GS400 that gets the same gas mileage :bowdown:

    I'd probably buy a GS430/400 just because the 2JZ is a pig.
























    No shit.

    insurance is high if you're young. :hs:

    unless turboed, it's kind of slow.

    don't buy one at 90k unless the major tuneup has been done.

    my insurance dropped 68% just like that when I turned 25, I don't get it. But its such a well rounded performance car, and I wouldn't call it slow, its just not the level of these new sports car that are out these days

    btw they are very very very good cars. While they aren't outstanding in one category, they are a great balance of looks, luxury, comfort, handling, speed, reliability

    I do quite like the car overall, could use more power though. But a Arista swap could be in order one day down the road.
