Our 4th Lexus over the past 14 years, and clearly the best ever. Previously drove a '98 GS-300 for 10 years and considered the '08 GS and Mercedes E550, as well as a number of other vehicles ranging from Infiniti to Cadillac to even Hyundai (Genesis). In the end, nothing compared to the overall comfort, performance, quality, features and styling combination offered by the LS. It is an expensive "value" compared to many other cars in the same or higher price ranges. (Got a 2008 LS in silver with black leather interior, with Nav/Levinson/Parking + other options.)
I recently turned 40, and wasn't sure if I was "old enough" yet for the LS based on the styling of older models. The 2007 / 2008 is a significant improvement in every respect and I have no regrets whatsoever for going luxury instead of sports/luxury. Levinson stereo is incredible and navigation is better than most reviews indicate - I don't see a need for anyone to operate it while the car is moving - even a passenger. Intuitive park assist is more useful than you might think (advanced parking not worth it unless you are challenged and do a lot of parallel parking). Voice control works o.k. if you speak clearly, but it is typically faster to touch a button or two.
