BMW 550i vs Lexus GS 430
I am finally in a position to buy either the 550i or a Lexus GS430. For those of you that have either owned or had the opportunity to drive both a new 550i and a new Lexus GS430 what made you pick one over the other?
It appears that the Lexus is refined luxury with a hint of fun, while the BMW is an exhilarating machine with some luxury injected into a rather spartan interior.
Is the extra 7k for the BMW worth it?
Any maintenance issues? I don't want something I have to leave at the dealer on a regular basis.
I have been going back and forth for 3 months now, and can not make up my mind.
I drive about 30k a year so comfort/luxury is high priority. At the same time the car needs to excite me or I will want to get out of it in 18 months and probably lose my tail.
Any insight into what made you chose one over the other would be greatly appreciated.
