    What Makes a Premium Car these days?

    What about the Aston Martin cygnet? Is that premium?
  2. The rear cross aspect is brilliant when trying to reverse out of a supermarket parking space if next to a van or SUV when it's not possible to see though its windows.

    I have been interested in the stinger and also infiniti as possible replacements for my GS but regardless of performance and looks neither feels 'special' inside with inferior quality materials and components. I wouldn't classify either as premium despite the fact they may be decent cars and reliable to boot.

    I wish you stop projecting your opinion!

    If you had read a previous post of mine you would have read "Premium to me is about quality of materials/components and build quality". Not once have I suggested that reliability is most or only important factor!

    How am I supposed to share my opinion without projecting it? It is an opinion and my opinion. I'm not expecting everyone, or indeed anyone, to agree with me!

    The topic is about premium cars not premium brands. The s class Merc is clearly premium whereas I doubt the same could be said about the a class. Same with Lexus. The LS is in a different class to the CT. It's all about quality of materials and components, not about looks or speed. The term I find most interesting in car magazine reviews is 'perceived' quality when talking about VW's, Audi's and BMW's etc. Perceived being the key word. Real quality is that which feels quality but also lasts because it is actually of a quality which lasts. I bought a cat basket which seemed really good on first inspection but broke after a couple of uses. Certainly not premium. I replaced it with one that was slightly more expensive, looks crap but works perfectly and has never let me down in over 10 years of service. That's premium and I think the same applies to all products including cars!

    Anyone on here own this? Am watching an old episode of Midsomer Murders and it features quite a bit!

    New is300h owner .

    It's really refreshing to hear a positive comment about the mouse. I came from an IS with touchscreen to my GS with mouse and much prefer the mouse. Easier to use and less distracting. And now I've got use to the menus can do most things without taking my eyes off the road.
  11. That's my local dealer. Think I'll pop in and see what they offer me. One up from the GS is the LS. Can't wait!
  12. I thought the red lamp meant I had a willing lady in the passenger seat!
  13. By all accounts Warren Buffet is a bit tight and not really interested in cars judging by what he drives!
  14. I agree. Better to do at night - it's much prettier! 😉
  15. If you can afford to pay cash you can probably afford the depreciation!
