Even before I owned the F10, I knew ES was not in the same class as the 5. The 5 series did have a reputation of being a driver's car, so I never doubted its performance even then. Yet, at least in...

I don't know how F10 compares to its predecessors in driving. Let's just say that this car is good enough for an ex-Lexus owner in luxury and comfort :thumbup:

Well to be fair, both GS and ES are near the end of their life cycles (GS already is). I looked forward to what Lexus would give us, but the new GS disappointed me.
