I see alot on campus but the only way I am able to destinguish one Legend from the other is by noticing the sound sysytem with the tweeters!
What other way could I possibly tell? the wheels?
Also are they the ones that come with the big LEGEND on the trunk?
thanks

Yes, GSs have L E G E N D across the trunk, but that's only because all '94 and '95 Legends have it.

Physically, and externally, the wheels and body colored grille trim are the first hints.

Inside, the shift lever for the automatic has the button on the top rather than the front as it is on the other trim lines. For a manual, it'll have a 6-speed. The speedo goes up to 160 vs. 140 on other sedans, the tach would have a higher red line (can't remember what the difference is right now). You will also see on the dash to the left of the driver a TCS switch. The GS is the only sedan which has TCS.

Under the hood, the intake manifold would have a Type II badge on it.

That being said, the more of these that you can match the more sure you can be that it's a GS. A lot of these things can be swapped.

Haha, well said. I have a GS poser, I bought body colorered grille and a typeII shifter, TCS switch and intrument cluster. My rims are aftermarket. Just don't lift the hood and I'm all set. :D
