    ...needs a 6-speed manual...grumble grumble...
    ^ your a lil off. The drivetrain is totally different. You get a new 6 speed auto with sport shifting (1-6 gears). The previous GS 430 has a 5 speed auto. Both do share the same 300hp 325lbs torque V-8.
    GS 460 is right around the corner and the GS 450h coming next spring should be faster than the current GS 430.

    better gearing and I thinks about 80lbs lighter... not a huge difference, but still something an enthusiest would notice.

    Good info. Maybe it will be a hair quicker than the previous GS?

    Whatever, I still like the new M45 more.
