WTF!? Benzworld is advertising LEXUS now?

Just seen one of those annoying flashies! Is this what it has come to? I thought this was a MERCEDES forum! I guess it's now anybody who'll pay the green, eh?

I'd agree, except I was a way happier car owner when driving a Lexus than a Mercedes (strictly from a dealership experience/service standpoint).

I must admit that from the standpoint of vehicle performance, nothing Lexus sells gets anywhere close to AMG's. Someone should take up Lexus tuning with the AMG approach - they could set the world on fire.

The only Lexus's I can stand are the 98-04 GS, the GX, and the 2004 ES. I've actually been in a basically brand new GX and I must say the interior is gorgeous. Lexus knows how to put bits of leather, wood, and metal to make a car look like a million dollars. I don't like the new look Lexus sedans, and I hate the SC, I'd rather have an SLK or Boxster.

All I see now at the top is "Build Ford Tough"
Aren't those goggle adds? The server has no control of them.
