Default Can someone check this out for me?

Today I was in front of a car and looks to me as if it was a 2000+ model Bonneville SLE or SSEi. It followed me for about 5 miles on the expressway on my way home about 75mph. I guess after 5 miles they decide to get off. When the car passed me it was a Lexus ES 300. Those lights on the SSEi and the Lexus look very similiar at night. Has anyone else been fooled by this?

I havent been mistaken by those. Now the Toyota Camary & the Lexus ES300 headlights I can barely tell the difference. But then again I think they are interchangable.

Its very rare that I can not tell what a car is from its head or tail lights but this time it got me. I thought it was just two Villes hallin butt for a while.

I guessing you are talking about the older Lexus that are more slimmer than the newer ones.

The older ones have those small bright amber projector foglamps.
