I had my Benz since I was 16 till my GF
got her GS300. I loved that car, smooth
and quiet, powerful and sporty but lux
as well. So I requested a GS430 and
finally got it after 25 days, my car
was imported from Lexus, Japan
exclusively and now I even don't want
to drive my new 2003 E55 AMG! It's
smooth! It's loving! My mom has a 745ih
and my father has a S67 Lourinser,
believe me they never ride 1/10 of a
Lexus! Of course the S67 is faster!
Even I guess my E55 AMG is faster and
of course M5 is faster, but even a V8
Camaro can't be seen on your miror.
Go for a Lexus, it's almost 2 years
that I'm driving 5 hours a day! I can't
leave the car, nothing has been occured
so far! Go for it! Go!
I moved into a GS430 from a GS400.
Better Nav and sound but no more
tiptronic transmission. I attribute the
diminution in throttle response and tip-
in response to the different tranny and
possibly gear ratios from the 400. I
have to stomp on the go pedal to get it
going. GS400 more responsive and fun to
drive. After the lease is up, I'm
looking at the new Infiniti M45.
