I would like it if my 528i had cupholders that worked, storage space, more trunk and a better sounding stereo. Having said that the GS300 had no steering feel, disconcertingly vague spongy brakes, displays that didn't match, more road noise, less road feel, more wind noise and less pick-up (impression) than the 528i. I spent several hours driving both, and have never regretted getting the 528i for a second - like everyone else on the board says, you MAKE excuses to drive this car. The Lexus drives you, but you drive the BMW. By the way - if you are in the north, get the cold weather package. Heated seats are wonderful, but the heated steering wheel does more to keep you warm than you can imagine!
