I have a high-pressure job & like my car to be a low-pressure, traveling sofa, so when I tested various cars (Audi A6 & A8, Mercedes 550, BMW 7 series) the LS 460 stole the show. My priorities are quiet cabin, smooth ride, great sound system and plush interior, so I'm very happy with my choice.
Much smoother acceleration and much quieter inside than prior versions of the LS.
I also like the electronics, including the 12.3" split screen. It's great that I can send digital radio from my iPhone through the Mark Levinson sound system with no wires -- I'm a classical music fan and this means I can listen to lots of stations from around the world via TuneIn and similar IOS apps. Last and definitely not least, the seats are amazingly supportive and comfortable.
A few more horses would help, but not a big deal for me. Also, it would be great if adaptive cruise control were standard.
