2006 Lexus GS 430 Base

- comfortable, quiet, nav system
- sluggish, dated styling
I switched from a 2000 BMW 540, and am regretting it. The car drives like my old Mercedes CLK 320 Cab - a very smooth, quiet ride, but when you need to get moving, the car responds "Just a sec!".
The goodies are great though. I love the nav system (though it's a pain that my passenger can't use it while the car's moving). The Mark Levinson sound system is amazing too.
I don't quite grok the seat ventilation system. It's been hot a few times this summer, and I've put it on max-blow/max-cold, but can't say I noticed the seat getting cooler.
When my lease is up I expect I'll switch to a BMW 550; I miss the responsiveness of a BMW more than I appreciate the luxury feel of the Lexus.
