I like them all to some degree. For your car though, I think GTS5.

Keep the lip or go GTS3, Amuse, or Arkym. The other two are absolute no-go's IMO.

GTS5 could be the best of both worlds since it has some 1M flavor to it. Exclusivity is a plus as well.

I've never seen the Vertice before. Interesting...

I'd go with the GTS5 if you just HAVE to make a change
