ZL1 or :gtfo:

5th gen ZL1 seems more up your alley than a smaller and stiffened 6th gen 1LE... Don't you want a more compliant suspension?
1LE has MSRC, which is the best of all worlds in one. 1LE in comfort mode seems to have have reviews for what I want.

A ZL1 would be :tits: my only beef is with the interior. I've driven gen 5 and gen 6 cars back to back, the gen 6 has more headroom, which I value significantly.
:notbad:

I figured that the 5th gen would be more spacious since it's bigger on the outside.

You should get the 19" ZL1 1LE :ramz:

Or just get a ZL1 1LE. :burnout: :troywax:

I'd love one, just a bit rich for me at the moment. I'd only make a move for a ridiculous :dill:

The seats for whatever reason go lower in the gen 6 than the gen 5. Overall it is smaller, but the headroom is :impressive:

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Been trolling some teslas on CL... damn... pre 2014 models have had either the drive unit, the main battery and the main screen replaced... almost every single one. It is :neat: that tesla essentially extends your life by giving the free replacement but the reliability is pretty crappy in the "early" cars.

That's what will get them. Hopefully they dont have similar widespread issues with the 3. That could bankrupt the company.

They seem to have enough margin to absorb for now... and are continuing to expand volume... for now... it seems like it doesn't impact them too much. They aslo had terrible quality on 2012/13 model S's.

Must be a scam. It's less than $100k. Rusted out shells sell for more than this car these days.

Pickup truck 4.6L motor. Pickup truck donkey cart rear suspension. Hell even the interior looks like a pickup truck from the same era.

The 4.6 was a car engine first in the town car and then the crown Vic. These are in fact cars... really archaic and shitty but from the Ground up cars.

$8 GRAND for a Lexus 4Runner with a V8, documented timing belt job, some solid documented repairs, off road ready wheels and tires. 144k on the clock. Could probably use a suspension change out.

Whale penis leather, butt roasters, navi, full time 4WD with a low range.

Buy it and rip all that shit out? I mean that's a hell of a vehicle. If I bought something like that I'd rip out the entire 3rd row.

IIRC Lexus has actual cooled seats, and not just ventilated ones. The seats in the 2012 IS300 I drove in the UAE got ICE cold. Those Mark Levinson stereos bang pretty hard too.
