We purchased our LS Sport in October after looking at BMWs etc. We are totally happy about the decision to do the LS. It is the best handeling highway/back road automobile I have ever driven. I really feel the LS is a sleeper, a BMW on steriods at a $15K -$20K savings. Maybe more considering it has the wheelbase of a 7 series. I'll give up that last 10th of performance and luxury and with the savings get off the road on weekends and go sailing with the money I saved.
Sport suspension, seat comfort, high speed highway handeling along with twisting country two lane handeling.
More power, more unique but still conservative styling.
