Anyone have an idea how or if they will differentiate the car numbering scheme between the 2012 and 2013 models? I would hate to think there would be two LS541 running around. Just the random thought for the day. ;D
Sure the 2012 will state 2012 LS541 and the 2013 will state 2013 LS541. It will also have a different VIN. Good question actually but don't look for there being much of a difference. Maybe the foilcal will be a different color.
I'm sure there will no room for confusing the build #'s as the model year will be different, the body style has changed somewhat & different colors are available, so your LS has no chance of being the same as a 2013 LS with the same build #. My '12 Boss #1886 has no chance either of being confused with a '13 with the same build # since Comp Orange isn't even offered for 2013.
I definitely agree there is no confusing the two model years. It is probably better stated it would be nice that LS541 would uniquely describe one car versus having to distinguish between 2012 LS & 2013 LS.
