Default Another Thought to Ponder

Alright, so, as the title says... I want you to ponder this...

If you had around 150 large to spend, which would you buy, a Mercedes-Benz *-Class, a BMW 7-Series, a Lexus LS, an Audi A8, or a Hyundai Equus. Now, those can include any variant (AMG for the Benz, Hybrid for BMW, Benz, Lexus, etc.). All of these are to be the newest versions. You can vote for just looks, if you don't know much about them, or if you do research, whatever you want.

Personally, I'm rooting for the all new Audi. I think they are before their time, as far as technology goes, plus, they look pretty B.A. Plus, Audi is far underrated, and nobody buys them. All the rich people spring for MB and BMW, just for the name. Personally, the MB is overrated, and has been the segment leader for FAR too long. The new BMW looks too awkward for me, and the body style needs to be changed. The Hyundai? Who wants to spend 100 large on a Hyundai? Why did I even put that in there? The Lexus... eh, just a really big, dressed up Toyota. Go Audi!

I'm going to say the Equus... Have you actually looked at this thing ?? Audi is over priced and over Rated. IMO..

Hyundai has come along long LONG way with what they produce, Look at the Genesis..

Oh and the A8..... I passed one on the Highway the other day.... Well drove beside the nimrod as he tried to pass me on the right....


I was driving my Diesel... haha I run out of Gear before I run out of Speed... The guy had a STUPID look on his face haha like WTF...

Pass me on the right lol or at least try

Only two foreign car companies that I like. BMW and Audi. Vote goes to BMW 7-series because the only Audi I'd actually own is a R8.

None of them. I opt for a Yugo and spend the rest on cheap women and fine booze!
