I already purchased 6 LS400's, and last year, i decided to try a Benz S430. I was just about to buy it until I went to the autoshow and sat in the Lexus LS430 Ultra-lux. It was the best car I've seen! Well, guess what, I have myself a 2001 Lexus LS430 Ultra-luxury, millenium silver on black leather. The best, even better than an S-class!
For the price, it's well worth getting the Ultra-luxury package; I got mine for just $60,000!
I wish the GPS screen was lower, like on the previous generation LS400.
