Lexus, continuing its proud tradition of making ugly cars

When you are desperate for inspiration, sometimes, you have to dig deep.

Only thing left to determine is how it drives. The only saving grace for the BMW is the option of a manual or a 8-speeder for the smaller engines, and it uses a proper handbrake. But as BMW's are all sold as normal automatic's and comes with a singular crap spec in Malaysia (no such thing as the F30 M-Sport here)...the gap is even smaller

having said that.... I almost converted into a Volvo S60/V60 because its as well equipped as a 7 series in malaysia.
No Proton?

I think the BMW interior is fine now. We have a 2010 IS and the 3 series interior is every bit as good.

But I am not as opposed to the look of the new IS as others are. At least they're doing something different.

ah haha. the symbol of corruption in my country. its good but not as great as some would think. malaysia due to the various screwed up laws, the cars are assembled here (basically shipping the parts from germany and then making the car in malaysia) to enable it to become more affordable, often leading to catastrophic circumstances.

i like the new IS. but problem is its never going to be an Altezza (the perfect car for someone who just ditched his impreza in the 2000's, slightly grown up image but can still be fun).
