Hi guys! Thanks for checking out this thread. What made me create it is that I occasionally drive to EU countries, and I thought maybe there're any V8 meet events planned like our OZ friends usually have. Or maybe we can create one some day.
I think Lexus struggled against the likes of Mercedes and BMW in Europe but were more mainstream that suited British tastes.
It was similar here in Australia.
I used to run a Prestige Motor Insurance Company and when people would ring for a Lexus quote the staff would tell them "we only insure prestige vehicles" The perception of them here wasn't all that great.
