Default Beautiful young woman in a Nebula Gray F-sport

I was leaving the Von’s in Toluca Lake when I saw my 1st Nebula Gray F-sport. Still had dealers tags in the windshield. It had the gray interior. I thought, “Well, at least I got to enjoy the exclusivity for about 6 months”. I was loading my car when I saw this beautiful young woman getting into the F-sport.

I walked up to her and asked her why she bought it. She replied that car is “just so pretty.” I asked her if she knew that it doesn’t have butt coolers and other amenities. She replied that yes, of course, she did know that, and that she traded in a fully loaded 2IS for the F-sport. She went on to say that she liked the 3IS so much better because the ride was better and that she felt it was a better car overall – and that it was “just the prettiest car”.

So I guess based on sales figures – Americans will not let a lack of amenities keep them from buying a car if the car looks great and rides great. Lexus knew this based on data and mathematical proofs. But to be fair, BMW and Merc figured it out first.

I can’t tell you the number of friends I have with BMW’s that have pleather and fewer options than the F-sport. They like the look and the ride --- so they bought BMW. Seeing the same thing with the MB CLA – can get a fully loaded Fusion or a stripped down MB for about the same price. A huge number of people will buy the CLA – stripped down to basics.

I bought a CLA before I had the IS250. Mercedes bought it back for the full amount because it was a piece of crap. It is a very good looking car but that's about it. To get even some decent options you have to add a lot to the base price. Not worth it and I learned that the hard way.Fortunately, it all worked out in the end and I love my IS so much more.

I didn't get her number. Unlike my Lexus she looked like she would be high maintenance.

LOL. How can you disagree with beautiful young woman but I would've still loved an option for cooled seats and memory feature.

Happy new year Glashub! What do you think of the new Genesis?

Happy New Year to you SonyHome! If the new Genesis is like the 2009-2013 -- it'll be rock solid and will offer features/tech that are on par with or ahead of the BMW, MB, & Lexus BUT it will lag in ride/handling/steering feel. I hear they spent a lot of time in Germany while developing the car. From what I understand though -- the ride/handling/steering are the hardest aspects for up and coming car companies to master. We'll see. If one is okay with getting service at a Hyundai dealership (I was) -- the Genesis is one heck of a great bargain. Also, to be fair, I never had a problem -- no a rattle -- not a nothing with the car -- so the dealership was a non-issue.
