So this new IS seems very similar to the GS, has all teh same goodies and even has a better sat nav.

does the GS have teh noise reduction sun visors and the front bonnet or was it headlamps that also reduce noise?

From all that i ead, the IS seems to be very very good and so is the GS but somehow i am thinking the IS is better? u pay a whole lot less for the same stuff??

This is only a guess, but I think the satnav will be upgraded when the car has a few tweeks in a year or two. I've heard that at some point there will be a GS350 and a GS460 (obviously alongside the GS450h which is prob coming first)

This is probably the point when things like the new upgraded satnav will be introduced, although I don't know whether they would bother with things like the sunvisors (although not sure why :blink: )

Having said that, I still think the GS is a much cheaper car than the IS. A full spec IS250 SE-L only undercuts the competition by a few thousand pounds, whereas I remember from when we were going to buy one, that the GS300 SE-L undercut the opposition by a much larger amount :)

Have you read the comparison road tests for the IS250 and BMW 325i in What Car? That gives the impression that the IS is nowhere near the quality of the GS. It might have a few techno improvements going for it, but that always happens when one model is released before another. I should imagine that the GS will get upgraded in a year or 2 to incorporate the same & more.
