A Wolf in Merino Sheep's clothing

Have only had car for a month but am absolutely delighted. Car is incredibly quiet and refined but seems lightning quick to me. It does drink fuel round town but when i picked it up in Kwnt and drove it home to Glasgow i managed 500 miles on a tank equivalent to 37mpg. Mind you i didn't cane it and used cruise control at 65mph. I've had a lot of cars in my driving years and can safely say this is the best so far.
Nearly two years in and the experience is still brilliant. The only downside is the front of the car is low and i have have had a couple of contratemps with kerbs! Nothing has gone wrong, the Lexus Service package is excellent value and the only real gripe is fuel consumption, still a petrol 3.0 auto was never going to be good was it. The most creamy smooth car i have owned and the comfiest, better than a SAAB or Volvo for seats, everyone comments on the comfort.
