Or does it loosen up over time. And does the auto tranny shift as smooth after 50K plus miles?

I'm 2000 into mine and I'm afraid that it won't always be so incredible to drive.

Ive got 26k on mine now, and there is a little settling and things that occur, however i think moist of my interior rattles are due to the system and having the interior taken apart a few times.... but on the whole, it drives and feels like the day I got it.

well think of it this way: will your girl always be really tight and fast? obviously not, but you should enjoy it while you can (and since it's a lexus you'll enjoy it for a while)

It is a well-built machine. With some maintenance, it will.

dont forget NYC roads arent that good, bumps and potholes will do it to your car. i did 130mph on gavanus expway with new ///m3 hanging on my ass, i think thats when i starded getting rattles in interior.
i need to get one of those submarine systems in my car which will worn me on structural integrity status when driving too fast on bad road.
