but, i got the CTS because it made me happy. I wanted it. U cant force a car on someone, if they are to enjoy something, they've got to desire it. U got him what he wanted and thats was the right thing to do--for that good job.
my dad loves mini's ... he's loved them ever since they were called "mini minors'' .. i wasnt even born back then. When i get older and have some money i'm getting him his mini... even tho i hate those cars.
Yes i'm gonna get him 20s... I drive that car sometimes too so Its gotta look good... plus the stock wheels look like crap. I only get the best for my dad... If you really think about it your parents take care of you your whole life. So whats $ you know.
I have tremendous admiration for the new LS as a piece of technology. Like a shiny new Treo phone, its functional and clean. It isn't, however, a timeless or original design that stirs emotion or makes me turn around to look at it again and again while walking away. It doesn't offer handling that makes it a thrill to throw around corners or straight-line performance that bests the $60k+ competition.
Extreme comfort + luxury + resale value. Thats what it is in summary.
The problem with a car built around a bunch of gadgets is that eventually, technology gets cheaper and low-end cars start to adopt the same features. That shiny new Treo phone becomes plain rather quickly.
A car has to have more than just toys to offer lasting personal value. But I guess if you're trading it in within two years its a non-issue.
At the end of the day a Lexus is an appliance. A damn good one but never the less an appliance. If you want to get in a high tech Refrigerator (a really nice refrigerator) and drive it around you can't beat 'em.
