Had a 12cyl, 6 carb Ferrari Daytona, beautyful car that drove like a truck and used as much gas as a truck, that was just a phase I was lucky to survive. Damn near drove it off the cliff at Virginia City. But back to BMW, the newer BMW's are complicated trash, loaded with computer gimmicks. I got the new Lexus for my wife because she likes gimmicks and comfort. Up till last year my ride was a 10yr old Toyota 4x4 with no air, no radio, no nothin, it just ran for 200,000 miles without ever seeing a dealer, I changed oil, hoses and belts myself. I did the 450 miles between L.A. and S.F. twice a week, that's my kind of car....
as if lexus isn't loaded with computer gimmicks as you so well put it.... name one car that isn't.
BTW just so we're clear, you are pissed about signing a contract YOU DIDN'T read at an independent franchised dealer??
