Well, next year the Lexus will be $20k and the Pontiac will be $15k. Thats just how it works.

Lexus was a VERY good choice. The ones that I have driven have been very impressive.

Now the facelifted E63 is on the way in. I should have pictures within a couple of weeks for the dealer.

And they have three C63s now. That's $190K in C class inventory.

It is darn near impossible to drive the '04 LS and not think it the best sedan in the world. The '04 is better looking than the new LS, so says everyone I have asked. It will make a nice driver and allow me to focus more time and energy on the classic stuff that is always needy.

It is definitely better looking than the newer model. And it has to be up there as one of the top two or three best sedans in the world.

But we want to see a picture of you in a pedestrian car. It needs to be filed in the BWOT Archives for your Permanent Record.
