GS 300's in-line 6 is a clone of the
BMW. We got BMW type acceleration and
Lexus quality. The car has more of a
luxury ride than the 5 series and the
steering is more relaxed but the GS
has more luxury, features and
realiability than the Bimmers.
One other note, our Lexus dealer
treated us right from the get go.
Every BMW dealer in town that we
visited acted as though they were
heirs to the English crown. Over the
top arrogant attitudes and some
salesmen had less than acceptable
level of knowledge of their own
products 3 and 5 series. BTW- the 325
are made in S. Africa not Germany.
The in-line 6 engine, Mark Levinson
stereo and DVD GPS Navigation.
Everything is so well thought out on
this car. Every component on this car
says luxury and smart engineering.
The 2004 version is rumored to give
the GS a much more aggressive look.

Other than the need for a more
aggressive appearence, which Lexus is
already addressing, this car is
great. Perfect combination of luxury,
performance and reliability.
