The Lexus Enthusiast Second Anniversary Contest

Lexus Enthusiast Contest Graphic

Hard to believe, but it was two years ago today that I started posting daily Lexus news at The Passionate Pursuit. Since then, the site has gone through a name change, four redesigns, eight million pageviews, over 1,000 news stories, and close to 5,000 comments on its way to becoming a premier source of Lexus information.

To celebrate this special event, I’ve teamed up with VAIS Technology, Sewell Lexus, Bel-Air Lexus and Lexus UK to offer some prizes to my readers as a way to thank you for all of your support. There are prize packs available for US, Canadian, and European readers, plus a special grand prize for US & Canadian readers.

  1. Cool!
    Annoyingly, this is one of those contests where you can put aside your chances of winning and still struggle over which prize is the best. raspberry

    I’d love to have a set of car care kit for use (and display x); although… the branded merchandise seem to be more of an everyday use and easier to show off; but, it’ll be awesome to finally be able to watch Top Gear and Friends in the LX.

  2. Congrats on the anniversary! Crawling all the car sites for Lexus news is too much, so very nice to have this one stop shop. Unfortunately I’m just outside the EU.

  3. happy anniversary krew! if the award was amount of comments left per day i would win, no doubt with no competition LOL

    I am glad to see Sewell Lexus participating… I purchased my certified pre-owned LS 400 from them a long time ago, and it was and is better than any non-Lexus new car I have ever owned.  Sewell is the best dealer I have ever worked with, period.  When it is time for a new one I will be back to see them.
