Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

Mercedes kind of blew a big opportunity not buying ad time on Monday Night Football with the game being played at the new Mercedes Benz Superdome

That's definitely odd, what's up with that?

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

What is it with women and Lexus'? They make overpriced uninspiring cars. Am I the only one who thinks they make the most bland cars on the market?

Sounds like someone needs to go for a test drive


Not that I have a great frame of reference but I've driven both BMW and Lexus and I absolutely loved driving the Lexus. If I ever make enough money I'll probably try to buy a Lexus sedan or a Hyundai Genesis if they're still a great bang for the buck luxury car by then.

We'll see. My signing bonus wasn't exactly Lexus worthy but whatever...but where the hell am I gonna find a ribbon big enough to wrap around a car?
Get her a conflict diamond then when she's so happy about what you got her break the story about where it came from. She'll be so distraught she'll never want anything expensive again.

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

I drive a Lexus, but it wasn't a gift, and there was no bow.

Hate the commercials too, but love the car.

German Cars, Latin Women and American Beer. Everyone has their specialty.

I test drove RX a few years ago and it wasn't that special of drive. These luxury cars are overrated...a fully loaded Nissan Murano will do just fine.

Re: F... Lexus Xmas Commercials

I too say f Lexus commercials they suck. But im with d-bag in that they have changed the perception of their brand to more of a luxury car, but most people still dont see them in the ranks of BMW or Mercedes.

There is no chance i would ever drive a BMW or Mercedes or any other pure luxury car, i would just feel like a complete ass hole riding around all the time in one of those things. I would however rock a lexus and maybe an Acura just because i dont think either can ever been true luxury cars. They are in the sames ranks of Cadillac or Lincoln; just the flagship cars of a bigger brand. If money was no serisous issue i would still rock a top of the line toyota over a lexus as my daily driver all day. Id just feel like a d-bag (not you dirt) rockin a car with a fancy name as my primary vehicle. Its the same to me as the people who have fancy rims on their commuter car.

Regardless what kind of car brands you like or dont like or the image you want to present or dont want to present, i think these commercials are ridiculous. If someone gives me a car im probably gonna be happy, but only if it was a windfall and the other option is nothing.

But if my spouse just goes out and buys a car for herself without consulting me first im gonna be a little pissed, just like i think she should be pissed at me for bringing a car home without consulting her. "I just thought we talked about major purchases like this first honey?" If she buys one FOR ME im gonna be furious. Several girls have said the same thing to me when watching the commercial.

A car is a personal choice. There are tons of different shades of paint, a couple interior colors, tons of options, different tire packages, mud guards, all sorts of stuff. Maybe i just need to man up and realize that only guys make the decisions and that a wife has no say in something like a car, house or any other major financial decision. Does anyone know if they have this commercial but its the wife that buys the guy a car? That would just be ridiculous right?

it's a purse they can ride around in. and while the majority of women i've meant don't know the first thing when it comes to cars, they know it's expensive and it makes the other women jealous. Which is enough to know they want one.*




*statement might be slightly sexist

More than slightly true though.
