Can somebody please tell me the difference in the 04 SLS and 02 STS? I noticed there was only one body style available in 04. They look similar but never saw them side by side or have driven an 04.

Any suggestions?

STS (300HP/3.71 final drive) production ceased in about June of 03. The SLS (275hp/3.11 final drive) continued until Dec. of '03, so the end-of-run SLS is titled as an 04. There were essentially no changes to the K-car line from mid '02, the beginning of the "'03" production run. (Anything built from August 2003 on was designated an '04).

The normal STS/SLS trim/drivetrain differences carried over.

So were the SLS models also equipped with magne-ride after mid 02 Sub? That would also be a huge difference if the STS had magne-ride and the SLS didnt.

No. MRC in the Seville ceased with the last STS. The F55 on the RPO sticker is the MRC, while F45 is CVRSS or its variants.

correct mostly
in 04 you COULD get an STS from Canada with export cluster but there is no domestic STS in 2004 to provide a break in the model design name so there would be no confusion between the Seville STS and the 05 RWD STS

Which begs the question: What is the build date of an exported Seville TS which is titled as a "2004". The door sticker will tell all. Any Canadians with a "2004" Seville Touring Sedan (STS) willing to chime in ??? .........and what would be the procedure to import a Canadian "STS" and have it pass 50 State emissions requirements ?

There is not really any major hoops necessary to purchase a CAD vehicle and bring it here. The salesman at a Lexus dealer I called several months ago in Canada explained that he sells cars to U.S. customers all the time without any hassles.
