The best car I ever had

Vehicle

2003 Lexus GS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I had a 2000 GS300, and was extremely happy with it except that the whiny V6 left me wanting for more so for my next car I upgraded to 2003 GS430 with NAV, 17'' Wheels and Mark Levinson. Performance is unreal, the only cars that beat me so far are the BMW M3, M5 and the Corvette and with (maybe) exception of the M5 none of them are nearly as luxurious as my Lexus. Sound sysem is off the hook, if you turn it up a little you can see side mirrors vibrating a little with the music, and the NAV is super accurate and a cinch to use (unlike my dad's on his 745). If you have $50K+ to spend on a car you will not find a better combination of luxury and performance.

Favorite Features

Super fast V8, Nav, Mark Levinson stereo and pretty much everything else.

Suggested Improvements

Have the trunk open up into the back seat for skis, more horsepower (why did it not increase even though .3 liters were added?), bring back the shift buttons from the GS400, everything else is perfect.
