For us it came down to the fact that we were buying with the plan of long-term ownership, and felt better about the Lexus in that regard.
I too did the same thing. I was digging the Audi 2.0T and even 3.2. They are very competitive pricing to the RX350.
The things were that I got onto the Audi forums, and all the Services, maintenance records. I gave it up, and went the RX350 route.
1/ Customer services, Lexus will replace Brand-new car for you, if your new car have any problem.
2/ Audi have problems with Carbon built up in their 2.0T model.
and there are way too many Horrible stories, as in where if you compare to Lexus
In the end Audi and BMW owners will always come out Butt Hurted as the result, Lexus owners are however faced with less Horror stories, and would always come out Satisfied.
So Lexus it was. Even though all the Gadgets, and Features are still lacking....but...I don't really care about those little things
