You are in the Sedans
What is this discussion about?
Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, Jaguar XJ-Series, Lexus LS 460, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Volkswagen Phaeton, Maserati Quattroporte, Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, Sedan
Let's try to define this forum as being limited to luxury performance vehicles where the mainstream version in a typical configuration has an MSRP of at least $60k.
A luxury vehicle with a base price of $59k qualifies because it would typically be bought with some additional equipment, bringing the MSRP over $60k.
Vehicles like the E, 5, A6, M, or GS, even if available in certain versions over $60k, don't qualify because they are cars from companies that have higher end cars in their lineups.

If Lexus adds wheel arches to the LS when they facelift it, remember: Tagman predicted it.
It wouldn't surprise me - stranger things have happened!

Driving to u appears to be a simple process of getting from point A to point B, w/out worrying if you actually make it there safe
Driving pleasure at the expense of safety?
Did I ever say that in any post?
Are you suggesting that dumbed down technology as Park-Assist is a safety technology?
I did not know airbags or PCS reduces driving pleasure? Maybe you can explain that idea to me?
Driving safety starts with the driver and when a driver becomes too dependent on a gizmo then safety will really become an issue.

Read This, LOOK AT LEXUS PERFECTION, look to attention to details, u germans suckerss!!!
"Lexus introduced the LS460 here, a replacement for its flagship LS430 now in showrooms. All I have to say is...what could they possibly have left out"
this one is funny, just wow Japanese, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!
"ON top of all that, Toyota chief Jim Press tells me that all the wood in each car was sourced from the same tree to achieve perfect consistency"
"And...the opening of the cup-holder and ash tray were calibrated to emerge from their console pods at exactly the same speed"

oac, are you trying to start a fire? For goodness sakes, you are basically saying that German car fans should drive nothing more than an original VW Beetle!
It appears that is precisely what oac is saying.

If A/C were optional, would you and hdpowders take it or not on a BMW? After all, it adds weight and uses engine power, both to the detriment of pure performance.

LOL, thats funny, good for envirnoment!!! yah and combined 18 MPG is also good for environment, hmm but hybrids are not good for envirnoment, same goes for the combined mid 20s MPG, becoz Japanese did that not germans,
Germans are the last to know whats good for the envirnoment, dont play that role, it doesnt fit u !

Was that option not available on the old VW Beetle?
