06 BMW 530I or 06 Lexus GS 300
Any1 have feedback?
i would personally get the GS430
i like the style over the 5
the handling should be about the same
power is very good, despite the number, it is just about as fast as the M45
is more luxurious
no new main control to learn
one of my buddy has one, they are nothing special, especially for the rediculous amount of money you pay.
gs, 430 if money allows.
530 all the way. Its a hot car.
if you can pay for it that gs300/430 is the ish.
Bimmer if you have to consider money when buying
BMW go euro
Anyone with common sense would tell you to get the Acura RL or Infiniti M35...
Coincidentally, my name just happens to be Anyone.
Neither. New A6.
get the BMW if you want to try all the loaner models while your car is being repaired
Lexus might be a little more reliable, but who wants to drive a numb car? (Lexus - feel nothing) Go for the BM, even though the new ones are ugly (the Lexus is ugly and not very distinctive, however) - if I were you, I would look for an E-class Benz or try a new A6; alternatively, the new Passat is looking hot.
all the cars you mentioned to get are known to be crap in reliability, the new passat following the passat history will proably be the same
and how do you know the new GS is not very sporty, have you driven it?
Actually, i just made my choice comparing all those vehicles, BMW 530XI, Acura RL,Lexus GS300,Infiniti m35 and Audi A6 3.2.
After a few weeks of driving all of them and comparing everything. No doubt, the clear winner. AUDI A6 3.2. If you dont drive it, you are cheating yourself. BMW is great but feature for feature does not match up, its great for Brand fanatics. the Infiniti has a winner here but a proven track record of performance is necessary to gain a foothold in this competitive market. The RL and Lexus are exactly what i expected, great cars that have ZERO passion or soul, it just lacks a real personality, they are trying too hard to something for everyone.
The Audi just killed. I pick mine up on Saturday. and if you try hard you can get at least 2K off MSRP.
Actually i am a first time owner and got a great finance deal as well 1.9 for 36 months, not to mention the free maintenance for 4/50,000. Cant beat that deal with a stick.
