      Nothing wrong w/ cloth and doesn't have to be cheap (note the fabric in a high-end suit, tho, probably would want something a bit more durable).





      Blah, blah, blah....

      That has not...

      Not a fair fight and was the BMW even the M-Sport?

      If you're going to test the hard-core AMG version of the GLA (notwithstanding being one size down), then should test everything else in...

      Did I not say that Cadillac misjudged demand (among other things)?

      They were expecting E Class-like sales which weren't going to happen, so they vastly overproduced.

      But I was talking about the...

      Brewing Piech vs. Winterkorn/Porsche battle.

      Things are starting to get real interesting.

      ^ As they say, there are those in denial and project out to others.

      And considering that you have some weird obsession and been following me around like my little b!!ch, you're the one in need of...

      ^ Was pointing out to other the major distinction btwn a brand/automaker that was purchased by another (or a holding company) and those that were created solely as a separate sales channel.

      Since when?

      Conspicuous consumption has never been at a higher point - we're talking hardly batting an eye at a $70 million condo purchases in Manhattan, 16 yrs olds getting a $200k exotic for on...

      Days on the lots isn't always the best indicator - could just mean that the automaker misjudged demand and is making way too many.

      Conversely, Honda/Acura cut production for the RL to meet the low...

      Don't have an issue w/ sticking people who don't take care of their cars in less nice models, but at the same time, would try to stick to vehicles which aren't so old (cars are much safer these days...

      The one major difference is that auto brands like Lincoln, Cadillac, Opel, Holden, Jeep, Dodge, Audi (Auto Union - which itself, was a combination of 4 automakers), Porsche, Skoda, Jaguar, Land Rover...

      Granted, many people are clueless about autos (more materially impressed by a used 10 yr old 328i than brand new, fully loaded minivan going for well above $40k), but it's an X1 and not a 6 Series GC...

      Primarily for the Chinese market - names don't always translate well and if properly done, alphanumerics can set the hierarchy (which is why Mercedes changed the nomenclature for its CUVs).

      What's even more humorous is your reading comprehension or memory retention - the lack thereof.

      I've posted on just about every make and in particular GM (esp. Cadillac); and have posted on just...

      Does Lexus offer it now in the US? No.

      So who cares if Lexus offers it in other markets (basically its home-market, Japan).

      Hyundai offers more options and customization and special editions...

      More like this...

      Sonata - 21k
      Azera - 34k
      Genesis 38k

      The Azera needs to start at a lower price-point ($30-31k), but for some reason, Hyundai USA doesn't want to offer a lower-priced base...

      But you can also throw in the full size Impala, Avalon and new LaCrosse, as well as the Genesis.

      All have that pseudo fastback look.

      Opposite for me.

      The RX is a snooze-fest and can't stand the asymmetrical dash design (which is just as bad as the exterior).

      The NX has a much better interior design and sheetmetal-wise, it...

      baljiet inserting a Lexus (w/ the requisite photo) in a thread about a competitor - just like clockwork as scheduled.


      And this is more suited to the comparison.

      While I agree with you, the final product doesn't come off right/what the designers were going for.

      Latest word is that all signs indicate a greenlight eventually, but final decision won't be made until the fall (probably dependent on building a 2nd plant in Alabama).

      Just hope they don't tone...
