I'm the same way even though I really tried to change brands this time around. I crossed shopped Lexus IS, BMW 3 series, MB C class, Audi A4, Acura TLX and GTI/Golf R. The funny thing is the Audi...

Well I have a little over 2 years until my lease is up so maybe next time I get to pick. The reason for the compromise this time was so I could get another GTR which I did right after so no...

Who knows, maybe this one will sell because it is a new line in the Lexus line up and it looks incredible both outside and inside. I just feel like when you start playing in the over $100k area it...
