I have read both threads and it appears you are looking for reasons not to buy the MB.

So buy the Lexus. There is nothing that special about either a LS or an S class.

By that I mean the S class are not rare by any means. It is the very nice car.
I should have worded it that way.

Yeah I guess You are right. I am looking for a reason mot to buy a MB. It's really not me. I am not a flashy kind of person. I don't really want to wear my net worth on my sleeve. I guess I prefer "unnoticed" luxury. I will look at the LS.

I have both cars in the family and talking to both drivers, it's their value systems that made their choices and their choice of vehicle was based on that alone. My brother wanted an understated luxury car. Both are leased.

My niece's husband wanted more prestige. He has a Rolex My brother has a Seiko. They both keep time. The Seiko does not require as much maintenance. BOth drive what they prefer and can afford each other's Choices. BOth have never not had a car payment. I have not had a car payment in 25 years, Different value system. I guess I buy their throwaways.
