  1. I think the price tag is way to steep. Base MSRP = $61,000

    Are you kidding? I don't think the price tag is not steep at all, you're getting a helluva car for that money.

    Try the advanced parking guidance and get run the fuck over in traffic ftl. But its a comfortable as fack car, great bang for your buck, but it would be the A8L for me.
     
  8. I test drove one and it was pretty sweet. We found a nice area to practice the self park feature, and when I activated it the car ran over a curb and hit a tree.

    I'm not getting one.

    i'd love to see what the dealer said when you take it back after that
     
  15. So why don't we stop focusing on the price and start talking about it's techie toys and selfparking feature? Somebody mentioned that it hit the curb trying to self park.

    This isn't comparable to those. The LS600hL hybrid will have a stab at the 12 cylinder brutes. And it will for sure be north of $100k

    Yes sir. V8 + hybrid. Which in keeping with Lexus nomenclature, will probably be 4.6 from the 460, and the DC motor which will equal to about 1.4 litres of petrol engine. I cant wait for the class we (the dealership) will have to go to on that one. Usually they put us on an auto-x course with it, and 2 competitors. For the 460 it was the S550 and the 750 :wiggle:

  25. I have never once mentioned about the german competition or any competitor for that matter. I just won't spend that much on such a car. :o
