They've got piles of GS' sitting at the dealer I bought mine from. Sorry but no one is waiting on line.

Jeff, how many of the problems I listed did you have on your GS?

: Uhmm, if the GS400 was truly "something better on the horizon" I wouldn't have traded it in. Surrounded by them? Yes, I am, and it feels GOOD not to see myself coming and going on the road constantly. As for one keeping up with me?
: Not likely. First tight bend I went through the GS would be off into the weeds. :-D

: The GS400 is a great VALUE. It's less expensive than a comparable BMW 540. But it'll never drive the same.

: Sales figures? Hah. Nothing about the passion or driving experience. Who CARES how it's helped Lexus sales. Does the fact that it's a sales hit change the fact that it drives like a Camry?

: Frankly, they can sell all they want. I'm happy for 'em. As far as people lining up to get one... go down to your dealer and try getting a 540i six speed... good luck :D
