No, actually ClubLexus folks aren't the type to gang mob other forums. Just a few of us punks that like to lurk around .

BTW, when you say LS430 vs S-class, you don't specify which S. If I were given any one for free, it'd be an S600, however if I had a limited budget and had to spend my own money, it'd be an LS430. Also, expect a slight bias considering the location of this poll, just a slight one .

Mercedes S Class versus Lexus LS430?

In other words Mercedes verses Toyota.

Is this a trick question,because you don't have to think too hard about the answer!

For real, I thought it was. I thought I read that somewhere, they are dropping the 4.3 liter engine for the 5. 0 liter (ala E 500, CLK 500)...guess i was wrong

Funny you call it a "riceburner", but the riceburner will smoke it's pricier competitors the S430 and S500. Ain't that a biitch!?

BTW pocholin, you still calling R34 Skylines "riceburners" after all that education in Basic Automotive Knowledge 101 you received? Tisk tisk...

Yes I am, and I really shouldn't call Lexus a luxury riceburner, they are better than that, i just wanted to catch your attention , it worked .
R34 skyline is still a riceburner though

Let's say he compare the S 500 with the LS.
The exterior have to go to the S
Interior-I don't know.Depending of the taste.
Comfort and reliability-LS
Value=LS

The S-class is an outstanding car; and so is the LS. I love both, and wish I had the money to get both!
