Bottom Of New Ls430

Recommended Posts

I have seen only one of these ads[in the NFL playoff this past w/e] wherein the bottom of the new one looks like a golf ball. Has dents all over bottom. To reduce wind noise and drag friction. Haven't seen this noted in the forum.

Watch for the ad this weekend??(in playoffs), if you missed it.

Think this may be a 'first' in production; have heard of this on belly pans of salt lake machines.

Sure wonder what a new one is like----BUT, I am NOT about go to a dealer and find out; sometimes ignorance is 'bliss'.

It drives beautifully, but IMO it drives very similar to the way the LS always has (which is superb). The real things not to look at are the styling and the features ;)

I checked the underside of my 04 LS 430 and it is exactly what you see in the ad. I have seen this ad on three occassions here in San Diego, CA.

2004 Lexus LS 430, Euro Tuned Suspension, SmartAccess, Modern Luxury Package, etc.

I've seen the ad several times too .......... I really like the wind tunnel / Jet airplane theme ...... a very satisfying analogy. :cheers:

The "LS" does kinda make you consider filing a flight plan .......... B)

I have to agree. I was intriqued by the commercial. Amazing what they come up with in technology. I laughed whan I heard what Tan said because I was thinking the exact same thing. The lst thing I want to do is go check it out at the dealer. That checkout could cost me $60G+ then my wife would take it anyway.

THis may be great Technology, but it was done by Richard Petty back in the early 70s. He was racing a Thunder Chicken/Road Runner and he put raised dimples all over the roof of the car.

By the next race weekend it was made illegal.

Might have gotten away with it had he put them on the underside of the car.

Oh Well!

Everyone,

Now I'm really intrigued ;) Guess I TOO will take a friendly visit to the local LEXUS STORE.

You think they'd freak out if I crawled under there and took a photo? :lol:

The underside in other 2004 LS430 is somewhat the same except the material is colored black in other vehicles.

Check with your insurance company, they may have a good hail damaged car that you can buy cheap, drive this when you need that little extra Go!
