: : Lexus is currently running demonstration of their vehicles in number of cities. This demo includes all of many of Lexus' competitors. For example: the ES300, 328i, Acura 2.5 TL, and Mercedes C280 are on one test track. The 540i (Automatic), 528i(Automatic), Lexus GS 400 and GS 300 are on another. Everyone at the event wanted to test drive the BMW's mostly the 540i and the 328i. You can test drive the cars as many times as you want but you have to stand ing line. (Ususally a 10 to 15 minute wait depending on time of day. I test drove the 540i and Lexus GS400 is nowhere close. The 540i handles like a dream and it did not slide on any of the corners. The GS400 kept on sliding on corners and a few people crashed it into cones!!
