    Will look into the Audi also as suggested.

    Picture this guys, you are a 40 year old looking for a new 4-door daily driver as a reward for yourself using your hard-earned money. After test driving your shortlist of cars, you got confused on which to pick since each car has its own strengths on what you are looking for. ��
    if it's so close that you cannot decide, any of the three will do. . .
    if i were you in that exactly the same situation, i'd get the lexus and use the extra money to buy the wife a nice watch (omega, cartier, or even a rolex). . .
    switch to a benz after 8 years. . .the watch will still be with her


    now, me being myself, among the three choices, i'd get the bmw

    good luck!

    At this time, I am leaning more on the Lexus ONLY because the Benz exudes so much class that it is not me, hehe. Yup, maybe after 6-8 years and it's time to switch cars, then the Benz would be on top of my list.

    I realised this when the CATS SA called me up yesterday and offered me their last remaining 3 units of the outgoing model E-Class now priced at 3.6M which is just a shade over the current price of the new C-Class. Of course went to look at the unit and.....it hit me. The car with the 3 pointed star looked so classy that it doesn't fit my personality... at this time of course. I liked the driving feel, comfort and all but it felt like I always have to be in a suit or something or I always have to be in a meeting with top executives, etc. Mind you, the current C-Class also exudes that sense too, hehe.

    Anyway, also went to Audi as suggested and looked at the A3. They don't have any more A4s since they are waiting for the all-new A4 to be launched later this year or early next year. The S3 will be arriving next month and they don't have a price for it yet. Honestly, the A3 is a very nice car, the interior is very simple yet elegant... already booked a test drive to see if it will be included in my shortlist, hehe.

    Nice choices but I would go for the Lexus. Value for money nga. Simple elegance.

    After a lot of thinking and research, have decided to get the IS350. I think I will get the most value for my money with the Lexus. Thanks for all the inputs.

    BTW, test drove the A3, although it's a very fine car, I find it small for my taste.

    Why not consider the NX 200t * 2.848M? For just a little bit more you get higher ground clearance. Hahahahaha.

    300hp, NA engine, RWD, plus the creature comforts - who can say no to that? Congrats!

    Test drove it also bro, but at this time I have no need for another SUV, satisfied pa naman ako sa Santa Fe ko, hehe

    BTW, will be getting the F sport version with the dark rose interior, hehe

    Yeah those cars are nice. Will eat a c200 or 318d alive. I wonder how big the rear seats are.
