I agree with all the comments. I think it is fair to that the UK Lexus does not have the image in the say way as the German or UK brands.
The build quality, fit and finish is second to none but most people in the bracket will buy BMW/Mercedes.
In the USA Lexus has a huge image, ( hence all the chrome bits) , just not here.
The only reason I was looking to trade was the salesman asked if I was interested in a new car and I was curious.
i love the car to bits especially the sound it makes and wholeheartedly glad I bought it and knew I would take a hit, just not that much.
All cars in this class take a hit but you can get Hugh discounts off list price, I could not obtain one on the LC500.
i bought my car on a PCP basis with a 3 year guaranteed value of £44,000 so on that basis I will be giving the car back I assume.
I am not complaining but it am finding it hard to justify £20,000 a year financing and depreciation costs. Buying nearly new is the way forward.
as an aside when I expressed these views to the sales person he said, I understand, but is a nice car just enjoy it!!!
