I ask, because I have been thinking about an S550.
The Lexus ride was much much smoother than the Mercedes.
I hated the navigation system in the Lexus, if there were overhead ramps on the highway the Lexus would get confused. I also hated that you couldn't input anything while the car was in motion.
I loved the one touch memory seat setting in the Lexus, the Mercedes you have to hold down the button.
The Mercedes DOES NOT have a heated steering wheel!!! WTF!!! its a Canadian car and I'm in Canada!!! I am really going to miss that feature.
This is probably a small issue but still bothers me, the windshield spray for the Mercedes streams, it doesn't spray the whole windshield.
Lexus air suspension took longer to raise compared to the Mercedes.
My passengers miss the shiatsu massage, I on the other hand am benefiting this time lol... The shiatsu massage in the Lexus can't compare to the Mercedes. That was the best feature in the Lexus or any vehicle for that matter.
In all I am happy with the Mercedes (for now). I hope I don't run into any major issues.
With the Lexus, I live in Canada and for some reason Toyota like to double the prices of parts here. One of the air ride sensors went on the car. In Canada it was $875 for the part plus our stupid 13% tax. I went to buffalo and got the part for $490 including tax.
