That's a great price on the LS460, and a tremendous value.

I mean, it's $10,000 cheaper than a 750i and $25,000 cheaper than a S550.

I'm really surprised that the Fit only sold 2000 units in September. By contrast, Versa sold 4700, and Yaris sold 7500. Are supply issues with the Fit really that bad?

Their 3.0L I6 TT makes similar hp and torque as their 4.0L V8.

That's the slowest time for the M45 that I've seen. Even slow-ass Edmunds got a faster time than C&D. That doesn't happen often.
