    Yea, Toyota... Not the same. Even though "made" by Toyota Corp, Lexus is a different breed.

    I`m sure there`s one out there.

    If it makes you feel better then I can make one up for you.

    Lousy Extravagent Overpriced Underpowered Toyota

    ...hmmmm That didn`t work right. I think I used the wrong letters. Let me try again.

    Learn Everything about Xylophone Underwear Soon

    That didn`t make much sense either. I like the first on better.

    Last try....

    Lean Expensive X-rated Undercooked Steak

    Man... I think there is a good reason there isn`t one for Lexus. Nothing works with X. The way I figure it, if it has a Toyota badge on it in Japan or Europe then it fits in the Toyota catagory here. Unless it is uniquely Lexus in North America, then its a Toyota.
