Just picked it up by trading 06 GS 300 AWD. Considered BMW 335 (too small) and 535 (too much) before driving GS 460. Tried GS 450h but did not like CVT. 8 speed transmission on GS shifts smooth up and down and so far never seems to hunt for right gear. Using 18 inch accessory wheels with Dunlop M3 run flat dedicagted snow tires in Minnesota. So far better than the average RWD car with snow and ice. Like the new soft leather seats, upgraded stereo. Expect no problems. Fast car, good gas mileage (for V8) and no iDrive!
Seats, dash, stereo, response to gas and brake.
Full iPod control. Availability of active stabilization in Minnesota.
