Luxury cruiser, thinking mans alternative to a Bavarian boring grey box

After 5 years of ownership I still enjoy a trip in my GS300 even if its a just a drive to work. It does everything at least competently and most things very well.
I enjoy seeing the drivers of boring German clones of cars in their often finance company owned overpriced diesels trying to look good and get past everyone as soon as possible. I can blow most of them off the road if I choose but rarely bother.
The only downside has been the rear brake callipers which have been replaced twice. The second time free of charge, but paid for the first set. Its a known design fault even 14 years after the car was made!
I have a full Lexus service history and would not take it anywhere else as they are great.
Yes the alloys can look scruffy - a known Toyota/Lexus problem. Had mine replaced by Lexus who do an exchange scheme costing just £400 including labour 3 years ago.
