If you think that the kid with the most toys wins, you might be interested to know that the Lexus LS 460 has been named the king of high-tech by the Telematics Research Group. TRG says that the LS will have more technology features than any other vehicle offered for sale in the North American market when it rolls off the production line for the 2007 model year. Special gadgets include the vehicle's 30GB hard drive for navigation and music, parking aid cameras, a 19-speaker sound system capable of reading MP3 and other media formats, Bluetooth, voice-activated navigation and other goodies.

      These are the same types of idiots that go to Best Buy to buy a home theater receiver and looks only at the spec sheets.

      Not long ago another "tech junkie" organization awarded the BMW 7-series with the same accolade.

      The people on here that are raving about the 7 Series and S-Class are probably the same ones bitching about them on other posts. We all know that the 7 Series and S-Class are ugly and expensive German junk. They may project the image that you're rich and drive a Global Luxury Brand (Whatever)vehicle. We also know that the majority of your time is spent at the dealership on stupid electrical problems that comes with ownership. No thanks, I'll take the Lexus anyday and know that I'm not bitter because I'm not trying to impress people with my Global Luxury Brand vehicle!

      "These are the same types of idiots that go to Best Buy to buy a home theater receiver and looks only at the spec sheets."

      Huh....I am not follwing what you are saying or what analogy you are trying to make? If you UNDERSTAND what specifications mean for a receiver it can be a fine way to buy (or course, listening to it along with speakers that match the receiver is also important). Or are you talking about someone who is wooed by a "110 WATTS PER CHANNEL!!!!" sticker? Either way, I do not see what that has to do with anything here.

      You need the goodies. What else is there to do in a Lexus? Drive? LOL.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Sounds like a lot of stuff to go wrong after the warranty is up. Yeah I know its a Lexus, but even their electronics won't last forever.

      I don't think I would buy a used one.

      1. The 7-series starts off with a 4.8L V8 (750i), and the 760 is a 6.0L V12 (760i), so guess again.

      2. The LS460 is a slightly smaller V8 with about the same power rating, and soon you'll be seeing the LS600h (5.0L V8 with a hybrid-electric motor) which will compete with the likes of the 760i and other similar MBs.

      Slanina #1 Dont be an idiot. S550 is clearly ranked behind LS 460 at No. 2. Did you even read the news piece?

      Another point: Lexus should let this new LS 460 compete head-to-head with 7-series in pricing. LS 460 can start at $69K and LS 460L could begin at $73K. It will still be a tremendous value compared to S550.

      Lexus should move away from cut-rate pricing if it wants to become a global luxury brand.
