I looked at a 2003 over 5 years ago now that had them completely faded. They could’ve improved them but they all seem to fade if they live outside 24/7. Cheap and easy to fix, though, so it’s irrelevant. Read more

By the way, they did sell the 160/161 GS as a 2005 MY for the US: Just not many.

That reminds me of a picture I took of my car next to an E60 M5 last year, haha. I love the GS400. It’s the best era of Toyota and the ‘98-00 had the great feeling mechanical throttle bodies the later ones didn’t: Just a nice, connected, driving experience with the right amount of luxury.

I always loved this lighter silver on them. I have a 2000 GS400 Platinum in Millennium Silver. I may get a set of Enkei PF05s for mine because I found those to be absolutely gorgeous on the car. I’m in no rush because the car is very low mileage and on the Platinum wheels (even if 16").

The 160/161 GS has aged much better than the W210 to my eye. The design continues to look understated and modern.

Not sure why that would be a reason. There are more reasons (to me) to prefer a pre-2001. Namely: the mechanical throttle body.

Is not only an issue on the early ones. They all fade. They just have to be sitting outside their entire lives to do so.

Actually, they aren’t rare. Plenty were garaged (UV and sitting outside a very long time does it). My 2000 GS400 has no fade as well on the originals. Even if they do fade, they are about $50 each from the dealer. Easy to replace.

Gotta love the white knighting for Tesla by the Tesla cultists.

Whoever's bright idea it was to include this atrocious design trim (let alone the designer itself) should be fired and never hired again. That single trim piece ruins the 90 for me.

China has many requirements for foreign investment in the country, of which many you probably aren’t familiar with. Vietnam is cheaper and less unstable than China anyway. What company today would want to invest in China operations unless they were absolutely required to?

Bingo! The ignorant (blind Trump-haters) will glorify the CPC if it makes orang man look even slightly fiendish. Too bad for them that he is 100% correct in his approach in dealing with the CPC and tactics involved. CPC leaders are the worst people alive. It doesn’t take much effort to be literate in this subject.

Tencent Picture's involvement is enough for me to boycott it. Shameful CCP influence.

Ever heard of a surprise? Tired of all these people wanting attention and taking the storm away from reveals.

If that’s the case then the leaked interior CAD images from a Model S/X (the story from Electrek) must have been from the next generation cars entirely (assuming the current-gen refresh wasn't cancelled). Even worse of a leak for them.

Yeah... You had an S600. With ABC. They did not have the M113. If you had the 7-speed it’s worse as well. If a facelift, the COMMAND-APS was also much less reliable. Read more

So much idiocy in this thread. The point of a much-needed trade battle with China is to put the despicable CCP in a position where *they* instate some favorable policy for free trade. They are less of a developing country each year. Sure, we are losing export opportunities with the S60, but where one product is lost, Read more

Oh, it's much worse for the Chinese government if you know anything about how their economy is entangled and the surplus.
