We test drove quite a few mid-sized luxury, sports /sedans, in the $45k- to $60k range. I have to say, I WANTED a BMW UNTIL I drove the GS 350. This car is fast, beautiful, and hot.Bought one last Saturday. My advice... Lexus has it all. You get much more bang for your buck. As for reliabilty; this is my second Lexus, and if it's as sturdy and dependable as my last one, I won't be disappointed.
You can't beat the interior of Lexus.
Even though Lexus improved the body styling, I would still like to see a more sportier sexy looking car.
