Try not to double-post.

At the risk of stating the obvious, you would seem to have only a few options -

- Pay off the excess over your tradein value on the LS
- Roll the excess into a new note on the M
- Sell the LS privately to try to get more than tradein value
- Keep the LS until you get your money's worth and kick yourself everytime an M45 rolls by

You're certainly not alone being upside down on a car loan. Most people just suck it up and deal with it, since there's no magic bullet that'll cure it.

My how the Lexus market has changed back when I bought my 90 Q [and friends bought Lexus] you just wrote a check for $35 plus tax or brought it in, in a briefcase.
Car loan --- whats that?

The Ultra package as does all those $10,000 in upgrades becomes worth $3,000 after the drive out.
