Default My new weekend toy

I haven't owned a Lexus in a while but this forum is still a favorite of mine. Picked up this toy a few weeks ago and thought I'd share. It was a brand new 2013 that had been on the dealer lot for while. These cars have depreciated to a point where I thought it was a good buy. Who knows what the future holds as far as values go, but who cares. To me it's a more civilized and refined GTR. It's got a lot of technology. Considered a Gallardo also but it just seemed outdated (and slower) compared to the Mac. Plus I wanted those cool doors! This is my first foray into semi-exotic car ownership. Hope it lives up to my expectations. Yeah I know the pic is crappy...

Congratulations. Quite a car. Can you get reasonable insurance for it, or do they charge an arm and a leg? Even as an almost two-year-old 2013, it would be quite expensive to replace if stolen or totaled.

Congrats on the Mac, which the brand is finally getting the attention it deserves from the public. You are doing it right Doc, getting a nice staple first for the herd.

Awesome - got to drive one of these earlier this year and they are so much fun!

Very comfortable and so easy to drive at high speeds.

Why doesn't my dentist have a collection like this.

Great pick up Drilz.

Hard to believe that your machine could sit in inventory for that long (goes to show how little I understand the auto dealer mind).
