    2007 GS350
  1. I've owned two GS350's (2007 and current 2009) and have never had an issue with cross winds, including driving over the Golden Gate Bridge is serious wind conditions. Keep in mind, the GS350 is not what I would call a sports car. It has sporty handling, but does not have the heavier/sportier handling of the IS series. Personally, I love the handling as it is the best of both worlds...sports and comfort, but thats just my HO.
  2. Bottom line, don't do it. Live with the interior color or go for something else. Yes, you can replace the dash, seat covers, door panels, etc., but you have to ask yourself is it really worth it. Why potentally mess up a clean low milage car just for ashthetics.
  3. I have a 2009 GS350, not an AWD, and have had no issues with the ride. The car has low profile tires. I previously had a 2007 non-AWD GS 350 with standard tires, and again had no issues with the ride. The same can't be said for the IS series, a stiffer ride. I have had no rattle issues with either of my GS350's. I honestly don't know if either car had/has a suspension mode switch. Guess I never checked it out, as I never felt the need to do so.
  4. The color is smoky granite mica. It takes approximately 20 seconds to open and 20 seconds to close. Looks neat, something like the transformers. I'd post pictures but I haven't quite figured out how to do it.
  5. Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been a viewer for awhile, but as I just purchased a new IS350C (traded in a GS350...just wanted a convertible), figured I might was well say hi. A beautiful car. The convertible top is way cool and you actually have enough room for a couple of overnight duffle bags (or a set of golf clubs) with the top down. With the top up the trunk is almost as big as the one on my old GS350. Only thing I've done to the car is replace the OEM tires (Bridgestone Turanza) with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus. For those who are familiar with both tires, no further explanation is necessary :) .
