A front wheel drive Camry based E350 does not compete against Rear wheel drive 535i. It is the RWD GS350 that competes against the 535i. Two totally different cars built for two different purposes.
The price difference between ES350 vs GS 350 is appx. $10K with ES starting at $36K and GS starting at 46K.
