As of the end of November, Lexus has an extremely narrow 206 vehicle sales lead, with BMW breathing down its neck.

Lexus has been the #1 Luxury brand in the United States since 2000, when it beat out Mercedes-Benz by just 423 sales.

So...people who haven't purchased their Lexus yet....have another bartering tool. Get crackin!

Maybe for Lexus. BMW is having a record sales year. Which says a lot since they had a record sales year last year.

Currently the only incentive BMW has for its 2002 vehicle lineup is their 1.9% financing rate, which expires 12-31-02, and excludes all roadsters.

Based on a portfolio of vehicles, I think BMW is more successfull. They have fewer cars, or at least fewer platforms, but they're still doing great. It amazes me how many people out there spend money on $80+K bimmers and benzes. Every wealthy town you go to, you see a few of em. I hope Lexus' rumored mid-cylce redesign of the LS430 (possibly graduating it to an LS500) will yield a better, more aesthetically sculpted car. The car is masterfully engineered, and with minor tweaking, could well keep up with the S55, 745, and the upcoming XJ8 and A8. They just need to lay more emphasis on performance and styling. Quality, already, is top notch. My dad's LS430 has about 13K miles on it, with zero defects. It's the most reliable and trouble free car in its class.
