Right there with you. The new 'Supra' is a big enough disappointment personally as it is. If Akio Toyoda actually ends up being bold enough to allow a BMW engine into a Lexus, then no thanks, I will be fully out on Lexus as well. Even now, as is, Lexus is barely the brand I grew up with and came to love. Mostly gone are the Lexus models that had a pillow soft ride on almost any road surface, and a serene driving experience all of which lasted even into very high mileage figures. Lexus these days is mainly focused on design (nothing wrong with that), and on performance or sport (with less focus on pure luxury). I see nothing wrong with sport or performance for a luxury brand, assuming that core, regular models are kept untouched in terms of pure luxury and other existing attributes that owners love and that performance and sport is added only onto other special trims or models. This is not exactly what has happened with Lexus in the last number of years.If Lexus starts using old BMW parts like Infiniti is using old Mercedes stuff, I will be fully "out" on this brand.
