You must love Google Images. It backs up every photo you take, and then, every now and then, decides to curate a collection of photos from your past that you had no interest in remembering. Although recently my phone decided to remind me of my move to Detroit. As you may (but probably not) remember, Supply chain issues caused it to be somewhat of a disaster. But that set of photos included a photo I took of a situation that taught me a very important lesson. Consumer tip: Lexus LS500 Not the best car TV to buy.

Because I left my beloved (but not particularly Gallup) Fiat 500e in Los Angeles, I used compact cars to get around when I first moved to Detroit. One of the first cars I got was a Lexus LS 500. And it arrived just in time when I was frustrated enough not having a TV to go out and buy one. After all, watching Hulu on a laptop for work after work can only keep a person up for so long.

The plan seemed simple enough. Campaign for Best Buy. Buy a TV. Drive it home. Enjoy the big screen experience. So I hopped in the LS 500, headed to Best Buy, and tried to do just that. I found one that was a good deal and went to buy it, but luckily one of the employees suggested I make sure it would fit my car first. Maybe they have experience with this thing.

When I stopped forward, I went to fold the rear seats, only to realize that wasn’t going to happen. If you get the executive package, these seats do not fold. Which makes sense if I think about it for half a second, but I obviously didn’t. This means that the TV should fit back, not the box. It’s a big box, but it doesn’t quite match the size of a TV unless we’re talking about one of those old 12- or 13-inch CRT TVs with built-in VCRs that families use to strap between seats to entertain their kids. road trips.

unfortunately for me, The back of the LS 500 It may be cavernous and luxurious, but it’s not cavernous enough to fit a 65-inch TV. Shout out to the employee who suggested we make sure it fits before I pay for it. Also, he yelled at this employee for not making it weird when it became apparent that I wasn’t particularly familiar with the $100,000 car I was driving.

60″ was also out, but 55″ looked like it might work. It’s going to be tight, but at least in theory, it should fit. But she didn’t. Do I really have to downgrade to 50 inches like A Poor? I was a Lexus LS 500 guy this week. Living this way was not an option.

But after some front seat moving, angle adjustment, and a bit of swearing, we were finally able to close both doors. That was it. I was now the owner of a 55 inch TV and soon I will be able to watch it happy endings The way it was meant to be enjoyed: not on a laptop. Hurray for me!

And hurray, because now you know that a 55-inch TV is the biggest TV you can fit in the back seat of a Lexus LS 500. Next time your rich LS 500-driving friend tells you he’s going to buy a new 70-inch TV, you can officially say, “No.” You’re not. 55 inches will work, but that really pushes it.” Your friend, who wouldn’t ship it home, will be in awe of your knowledge.

Hopefully, though, Lexus can solve this very serious problem with the next, wider LS generation. Your loyal customers shouldn’t have to settle for a 55-in., Lexus. They deserve more. Both TVs And Flagship luxury sedans. Certainly, TV transmission capacity is an important part of LS development criteria. If not, it should be. Do you want your wealthiest customers to only be able to afford small TVs? I sure hope not.
