I have owned BMWs, Audis for the past 30 years and my new Lexus blows them both out of the water. Here's a reliable excellent performing sedan with over 300 HP that gets almost 30 MPG on the highway... unbelievable! Great fit and finish and a pleasure to drive.
Engine performance and interior including the Mark Levinson sound system.
Get rid of the cassette deck! A larger trunk would be nice but not really a problem.
