driving back from a BMW meet in my area.. i sort of cut off a lexus ES300 , i say sort of because his lane was merging in because of parked cars. but he almost stopped. so i kept going.. anyways. i guess the guy was pissed so he was racing behind me trying to catch me.. anyways.. he was keeping up ok because of traffic. but we got into some hairy corners.. i took the corner. hard... i watched in my rearview about 4 seconds later. to watch this idiot try to take the corner the same speed as me....a loud tire screach and the guy spun out , but didnt hit anything..
i dunno what happened next but at the second set of light the guy pulled up beside me and kinda gave me the look of holly shit im stupid...

lexuseses are nice and all but just a dressed up toyota.

It's like toyota saying hey look at us we have a fancy car too.

It's still a damn toyota (nothing against toyotas) but they just are not made to do the twisties. Smooth ride, yes. Goes fast, yep. Quite, very. I've not drivin one but handeling my guess is marginal or good but most likely not BMW good.

And come on why spend the money on a lexus when you can get a damn camry for cheaper....

How did you come to a conclusion that this Lexus ES300 was rice ?

He didn't say that the car had a fart-cannon or a 3 foot spoiler. All japanese cars are NOT rice just because they are from Japan.

Owners rice cars out, not the manufacturers. I have seen Mustang rice, Cavalier rice, BMW rice, VW rice...

I am not offended... sorry if I came off sounding that way.

I define rice as big wings, unpainted body kits, stickers, fart cans...
