I'm a long time BMW 3-series fan. So when I needed to trade up to a bigger car, the natural course of action was to buy the 5-series. But wait. After driving both the 5 series and the GS 350 and comparing all their features, the Lexus made a lot more sense. Granted, the GS-350 is not as fun to drive as the 3-series BMW, but neither was the 5-series, after all they are much bigger cars. Nonetheless, the GS 350 is great to drive, is powerful, handles very well in the snow and is amazingly comfortable. I learned to love it very quickly and look forward to driving it whenever I can.
