Lexus, like many premium Japanese products:


Technically superb with many groundbreaking
and/or jaw dropping elements but ultimately
missing something.


Japanese whiskey is the same.
Some great stuff but because it
is almost perfect it seems to be
lacking ...


Welcome back BTW!

In the metal just stunning. Star of the Geneva Motor Show back in March in my humble opinion. What's not to like - stunning looks, engineering excellence, superb build and ultimate reliability. A car that if Alfa could build it would be a benchmark.....

Had some warranty work done on my Lexus a few weeks ago.

Lexus at Bradford had one of these in the showroom. While I was drinking my coffee, eating my croissant and reading the Financial Times I was looking at one, stunning, end of.

It does look absolutely awesome. I've always had a bit of thing for Lexuses.

I think the big saloons are so uncool that owning one would be really cool.


Liking the avatar Elvis. Possibly my favourite photo of a famous person ever.

I need to see it in the flesh - bound to see one pulling into Wentworth Golf club soon - but from the pics I'm going cool. It's brand new so it can't be super cool just yet. Cool it is

Saw it at Geneva show. Some great surfacing and looks nicely detailed in a different way to any other make.

This is cool. Not sub-zero, but it is indeed cool. Especially the naturally aspirated V8 version. Who'd have thought that Japan would be the last bastion holding out against turbocharging?!

Totally arresting looks. I saw one at Lexus Bolton a few months ago and I was properly caught by its styling. It's more gorgeous in the metal.
Beautifully built too. And a V8! Come on, what more do you need?

I will concede that there is a hint of soulless perfection about it but I think it's a relative rarity and just creeps into cool despite the badge.

I wish they’d have put one on mine.

I knew I'd seen that Lexus grille somewhere. . . 1961 Plymouth.

It was ugly then, it's ugly now.

Fascinating. At this time 12 think it's cool or super cool vs only 8 think it isn't.

Am subscribing to the isn’t part.
The is front is hideous! Totally Toyota Aygo. Too far between the front and the rear axel. The rims are awful. Looks like a catamaran ferry from the rear.

It’s a bl.. dogs’ breakfast.
