Most honest car advertisement?

Even BMW admits that their current models are all about "attracting badge whores" (both of whom are sitting in this stationary car in this Ad) :wink:

So far, within the past six months Car & Driver has linked a new Lexus IS higher than a BMW based on fun-to-drive quotient, and praised aspects of the chassis and steering in both the Caddilac ATS and all-new Chevy Impala while criticizing recent Beemer models as feeling increasingly asceptic.

Clearly, end times are upon us.

Unfortunately the Lexus will continue to be driven by people who are incapable of driving any car correctly.

Lexus IS still looks disgusting enough (both inside and out) to detract many potential buyers :wink:

I test drove an ATS with 4 wheel drive and the 2.0 turbo engine. My budddy has a 528 with xdrive. I completely agree with Car & Driver, and based on dynamics alone thought the ATS was the better vehicle.

Depreciation, however, makes it silly to buy a new Cadillac.
