C&d: Lexus Beating Bmw

It is not up on their website yet, but I am surprised no one has mentioned that BMW was beat out in a recent comparo with the new IS.

Also, the X5d was placed last in a series of diesel SUV's in the same issue.



Seems like C&D have not been a fan of BMW as of recently. New M5 ranked last in its comparo, and now the 335 (taking 2nd out of 3) and X5d (last)

Is it really of any significance what Car and Driver thinks about how BMW ranks with the other wannabe brands? I sure as hell would never buy a car based on a magazine article. People rely too much on their "smartphones" these days instead of going out and actually driving the car and talking face-to-face with someone.

Yeah, I'll second that - only it's the "Predator" from the movie series of the same name that the Lexus resembles. Too closely. While the Japanese have made some great strides in quality and construction, their styling tastes are at both ends of the spectrum. Toyota vs. Lexus - same manufacturer, one dull as dust, the other frighteningly ugly. Nissan, on the other hand, has done much better - the GTR is nicely styled, although the computer does too much of the driving for you. With that kind of power, though, maybe that's not such a bad thing for some drivers (the ones with more money than brains or skill).

Just close this or merge it, why do we need another thread to blow up when the same topic exists with like 10 pages already?
