wow, you must have been pushing pretty hard to slice up the tires like that. Mine came with Dunlops too, I've done some spirited driving through back roads, but not quite up to your level. lol

Agreed. For me, I don't necessarily want something that's aiming to compete with an M5, but would like a GS that can go toe to toe with a 550i. That said, you're probably still looking at the 70k...

Curious as well...

As to the reliability of German cars, I think they have come a very long way since 2000, and it wouldn't really be a fair comparison to judge them based on their reliability 1.5...

I hit a raccoon doing about the same speed in my 2IS. Cracked the bumper just above the fog light and loosened the driver side fender lining.

Same situation here. It's just a lease so I wasn't terribly picky, when it comes time to buy (new engines) I'll certainly be more particular, even if I have to wait a little while longer to get what...

Sport and Sport+ mode change the mapping so you have better response in the mid range, so yes, it will most certainly help. The difference between the GS and a 550 is when you want moderate...

Based on my test drives, I'd agree in the sense where "close" meaning the GS has actually surpassed the 5 series chassis, echoing what I've been hearing in recent reviews. The engine though is a huge...

You'll miss the power, even if you don't always use it. I cross-shopped both before settling for the GS. Part of the reason was familiarity with the brand, my previous vehicle was an IS. The other...

I'd not be so confidant in those conditions if I were you. The GS with all it's electric nannies are great, but still have to abide by the laws of physics. You still just have 4, relatively small...

It's also important to note that the 3.5 V6 we are running is a 9 year old design, and while it was top of it's game nearly a decade ago, it's currently outclassed by the competition. It's the only...

It doesn't stop with leather unfortunately. Several options omitted from the 3IS F-Sport. Those omissions are what gravitated me towards the GS

If you were referring to the voice commands, yes I'd agree. I thought you meant the system as a whole, navigating, through menus, etc. Either way, glad you're enjoying your new ride overall.
