    • @Dragos Pahontu I can only base my opinion on what I know and Lexus , although is a good car maker, doesn't hold in my country. I have been looking forward to trying to buy a VERY long awaited LF1 promised last year and Toyota failed me yet again. I can however buy a Bentley anytime and pretty much anywhere

  • I miss the days cars were distinct externally. You could look at W124 or E39 from the side profile and immediately identify it as a Benz or a BMW. Without the logo on the wheels a lot of these cars look like any other car from the side. That said, maybe the "carness" of a modern car is the technology it packs. The dynamics of exterior and interior have pretty much been exploited to almost the max. And that's why where the Merc stays ahead of the rest. Poor A8 and 7 series. Always playing catchup to the S Class

  • I don't think it was a fair comparison because the Audi S8 is more a performance luxury limousine than the other 2 marques. Perhaps if it had been compared to the S Class AMG and the BMW M7, it would have been more of a level playing field. That said, good analysis and food for thought for me. I'm an Audi man by the way.
