    i would personally get the GS430

    reliability
    i like the style over the 5
    the handling should be about the same
    power is very good, despite the number, it is just about as fast as the M45
    is more luxurious
    no new main control to learn

    one of my buddy has one, they are nothing special, especially for the rediculous amount of money you pay.

    Anyone with common sense would tell you to get the Acura RL or Infiniti M35...


    Coincidentally, my name just happens to be Anyone.

    Lexus might be a little more reliable, but who wants to drive a numb car? (Lexus - feel nothing) Go for the BM, even though the new ones are ugly (the Lexus is ugly and not very distinctive, however) - if I were you, I would look for an E-class Benz or try a new A6; alternatively, the new Passat is looking hot.

    all the cars you mentioned to get are known to be crap in reliability, the new passat following the passat history will proably be the same

    and how do you know the new GS is not very sporty, have you driven it?

    Actually, i just made my choice comparing all those vehicles, BMW 530XI, Acura RL,Lexus GS300,Infiniti m35 and Audi A6 3.2.

    After a few weeks of driving all of them and comparing everything. No doubt, the clear winner. AUDI A6 3.2. If you dont drive it, you are cheating yourself. BMW is great but feature for feature does not match up, its great for Brand fanatics. the Infiniti has a winner here but a proven track record of performance is necessary to gain a foothold in this competitive market. The RL and Lexus are exactly what i expected, great cars that have ZERO passion or soul, it just lacks a real personality, they are trying too hard to something for everyone.

    The Audi just killed. I pick mine up on Saturday. and if you try hard you can get at least 2K off MSRP.

    Actually i am a first time owner and got a great finance deal as well 1.9 for 36 months, not to mention the free maintenance for 4/50,000. Cant beat that deal with a stick.
