Lexus > BMW

Lexus is an underclass of Mercedes but can never compared to BMW performance. It's a different class. BMW is a true sport sedan in car world. Lexus is in sport luxury.

It's not the color I dislike (b/c hey, my mustang is red, lol). The elise just looks like that ridiculous car from the old show "Hardcastle and McCormick." It's UGLY, lol. Also, help you if you get into an accident in it (or a fact. five cobra for that matter, haha).

Yeah, you're correct. I know nothing about it.

I should have realized you know it all about motorcycles AND about cars (even though you admit you couldn't build one, lol).

oh ok, your post above made it sound like you didn't think bmw's were luxury cars. you were comparing the sport aspect of them.

lexus = sporty

i wonder if you can even find one of those that isn't already a project car or in decent shape to become one. After all those shows on TV, people probably snatched all of those up.
