My family had the GS350 AWD and it had the same Powertrain, infotainment, etc. I absolutely LOVED the engine, it sounds incredible and I beat the shit out of it with zero complaints. The transmission was the weakest link on performance. It shifted great, but it was spaced almost like a 4 Speed auto. If it had the 8 speed it would feel MUCH faster and more modern. The best 0-60 I could get on the 17’ AWD GS was about 5.7, brake boosting it to like 2500 rpm. The gap from first to second is terrible. The replacement car was a C300 AMG Line and the interior kills the Lexus. The transmission is MUCH better and so is the infotainment. But I miss the NA V6 linear power and noise. The C300 is a decent bit faster feeling though, despite being about the same rated.
