    Well, let's put it this way. A Lexus will always be a Toyota, no matter what. A BMW will always be a BMW.

    It comes out in early 2008. 6 months later, the E92 M3 will be released to piss all over it.

    because i've driven the m3, and was curious about the comparison.

    what's the next-gen m3 gonna cost?

    Think about it. Can you think of the last truly great Lexus that forged the landscape of the industry? BMW has constantly set the benchmark for decades.

    So the Lexus will always be reliable and have great build quality and customer service, while the BMW will always have misc electrical problems and douchebags owners

    sounds about right

    i'd happily take the LS600L over whatever BMW's top luxury 7/8/9 series is, but that's an opinion.

    i think toyota makes a far more reliable car than bmw ever has and ever will. there again, an opinion.

    Lexus has always banked on superior fit, finish, reliability, and customer service. They also cater to a more comfort and luxury oriented customer base.

    :rofl: not at all - i don't and never have owned a Lexus or toyota - i enjoy seeing how BMW sackriders always think BMWs are the greatest cars ever and totally dismiss /ignore problems people have had with the cars as anamolies.
