Do anyone realize there's three small White LED as DRL just slightly above of the indicator ? I first saw that on Lexus LFA , back in 2009 .

    Yes, we borrowed one for a couple of weeks. Didn't like it much. To harh of a ride. The interior wasn' t special at all. Hard plastics, hated the automatic joystick

Love this car, too bad we don't get this in europe. I'm sure it will also attrack GS owners, it sort of looks more like a GS succesor with that roofline. Smart move by Lexus. The new GS is more a complete new modelline than a succesor of the old GS. It will attrackt new buyers but current GS owners might jump model, especially with the increased interior space and much upgraded interior. Any thoughts on this?

    The biggest difference is that the ES is FWD while the GS is RWD. Those who dont care about RWD vs. FWD might choose the ES over the GS.

    I know, i own a GS. I chose the GS because it's RWD The last model wasn't exactly perceived as the enthusiast's choice. The new one is marketed as such. Hence my comment.

    While I like this version more than the original one, I'm starting to think the the gap isn't that bad at all. The Chinese leaked photos weren't great.

I like this ES much more than the previous model, but I miss in this new car the double sunroof and I wish that is going to be available with AWD and, I cross the fingers to see this in Europe, so in this case I think that can be a best seller, being competitor of Audi A5 Sportback or Mercedes CLS.

First thoughts -Offer a full leather steering wheel - choice is important - still offer the faux wood one as well. Offer a full leather shift knob - some of us live in areas with extreme heat and cold. Offer an option for a digital clock where the analog one is or consider increasing the size of the GPS screen down to that area. Offer both mouse input and touch screen input for the GPS. Let us know the 0-60 on the hybrid - more important to me than HP. Frankly the wood trim looks forced everywhere - I'd rather just have leather everywhere.
