NICE pics, good contrast between the 2 cars. Especially the interiors!

Holy crap there's a boatload of buttons on the door of the Mercedes and the center console of the Lexus.

I mean, yes it's better than i-Drive, but, Wow!!!!!

Very nice.
Those are my 2 choices for my next car.
Makes the decision more difficult now.

Just an opinion as always, but I don't feel you can look at these pictures and say the LS doesn't have a distinct look.

Not a fair comparison. Should compare it to the S550.

Otherwise I'd say in looks it's a tie. In the real world driving I'd take the LS. For driving up to the country club the S wins as it gets more respect.

Well the S550 is sold as the S500 in Europe.

Yep, the S500 in Europe has the same 5.5 litre V8 as the S550 here with the same hp, but they think Europe prefers the traditional S500 designation.

what are you talking about?! like enigma said, that's s550. the pics are from european sites i believe. it's s500 everywhere else, only s550 in the states coz' most people are too "into" the numbers

But either way it's a misnomer, since it's a 5.4L under the hood.

The Mercedes marketing guys must've been paid tons to "research" on which numbers "sound" or "resonate" the best.

Yep, they're from the German autobild website, & they have been posted here before in another thread.
