Just because you put the new 3 Series with it's fuggly grill up against something visually ugly doesn't make it look any better.

The Lexus has a nicer instrument cluster...at least their gauges look like...well...gauges, and go the "proper" directions.

The fact that there's a need for this comparison is bad regardless.

Still putting analog clocks in their interiors, looks silly.

The rear lights of the Bimmer look 'Lexus like' or 'Lexus inspired' but that's about it.

I'm convinced this thread was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, given the 'Lexus' comparisons have been made ad nauseum by people on this board who have no idea what they are talking about

A bit too close to the Lexus for comfort.

Not seeing the Audi except a bit in the rear.
