Very well said, my thoughts exactly!Originally posted by ispeed:
As you know many factors come into play when purchasing a car. Price, performance, style, comfort and among other things. Certain cars appeal to certain people. Not everyone likes the design of the IS300 but they may appreciate the styling of a Solara or Celica. Admitted the CL Type-S has one hell of an engine but I personally think the design is very bland. When I buy a car I want it because I like everything about it. The Type-S can surely perform but not everyone likes driving big cars. Although the Celica would get wasted by a Type-S or GS400 I would still rather get a GT-S because I personally like driving small cars. I would rather invest money into a car that has the styling I'm attracted to and improve its performance with upgrades rather than buy one that dosen't appeal to me visually but already has the goods under the hood. Some people only look at the engine when they buy, some just at the curves of the body panels, and others check out both.

That's true, the GS4 does have a slick V8 and respectable performance. But, I know one thing's for sure. I don't have $50 grand to blow on a GS4. I do know that a TRD Solara in the low $30s is a great value if you're running with '99 M3s , stock GS4s, S4s...etc.
