I currently drive a 2005 MB E320. I owned the current version of the BMW 5 series previously, but the style kind of reverse grew on me, and I ended up trading it in because I regretted the purchase. Now it is new car time again, and I am torn between the Lexus GS and the Bimmer. Now the style looks OK to me. I am no great fan of the Lexus styling either, but these seem to be the go-to cars in the range my firm is looking at. Audi would be in play, but the nearest service location is an hour away from my home. Any thoughts? I love the way the 5 series drove, but the Lexus is pretty luxurious. I know that folks will say it's comparing apples and oranges, but I'd just like to get some general thoughts about which car they'd choose.
