    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.

    anyway, good decision.

    I'm not fat, bald or old enough to drive a Lexus.

    I'm greasy enough to ride FAT ELDO around though.

    Very cool and stylish.
    My favorite thing though is the exhaust tips in the bumper.
    I saw one of these the other day. I'd take one.

    Same thing with GM Cars guys. You cant tell me an Avalanche & EXT don't look the same... or the new Tahoe Yukon & Escalade dont all look the same. You pay for the name and the luxury.

    I have a tough time driving cars that are rebadged entry level rides, that's just not special.

    I am special.

    My V is entry level, it makes me feel special everytime I stand on it.

    The LS460L is very nice and makes the driver feel good, sleepy maybe but good.

    The fact that that the ES300 is sold as a Camry in Japan is enough for me.

    Re: Lexus or Caddy? Made my decision...

    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.

    Wow, what do you with an LCD on a fridge? Put a camera inside to see your food?
