    Exactly. You can put as many toys in a car as you want, but it'll never make the car fun to drive, memorable or give it sentimental value. Only the car it's self can make it fun to drive, or give it sentimental value. Think of it like this... the car is the cake, the toys are the frosting. No amount of frosting can fix a godawful cake.

    Too bad you didn't consider a Lincoln Town Car L-series. That's the one which is stretched out 6" compared to a regular Town Car.
    If I were to buy a new car, that would be one of the very, very few I would want.

    Like you said, thats in Europe, and since the OP is in the USA...

    Just like Jesda said, meh. That Lexus is just an appliance for the rich. Its a car for people with money who dont care about cars. At least the 750iL handles well for its size. The LS460 I drove reminded me of why theres such products out as Viagra and beard dye.

    I traded with a friend, my V for a 750Li a few weeks ago. This was supposed to go for a week or so, but I snuck in his garage and took my V back the next morning. That 750Li was a BOAT. Keep in mind I drove a 1973 Eldorado to work this morning, so this is said by a guy that knows his boats. That Bimmer is a BOAT.

    Lexus sure does make boring cars, but great value, and very reliable. And FINALLY, they make some fine looking sedans. Pictures dont do the LS justice, you have to see it in person, it's gorgeous. So is the IS, and the GS. Even the new ES (which is the only one to share a Toyota platform to keep the cost down.) I think SUV's are an absolute waste (even though I own one) so I wont comment on Lexus's.

    I think the IS is a nice looking sedan. I would seriously consider a 350 if it had a manual.

    That and better chassis response. It's pretty numb from everything I read. But if you like toys, the IS (and ES and GS for that matter) has all the toys you need.

    The IS350 drives great. I drove one at the "Taste of Lexus" thing and that thing corners. It was great. This is gonna sound crazy though. The big 750li i drove at the same event felt better in the turns.... no joke! BMW's feel great!

    IS sedans are a bit too small for my taste though.

    The only thing I really like on the Lexus is the flush exhaust pipes. You have to admit they are pretty cool. I can't imagine what happens to the paint near them though. Oh well.

    Nice car, not that it would ever be my choice, but still.

    I bet there is a heat shield built in to the finisher.

    I agree, if I was simply interested in commuting, and not driving, it is hard to go wrong with a Lexus.
