Sure, if you look at a 10 year old Infiniti\Lexus, they do not seem to look too classy. The thing is, 10 years ago BMWs\Mercedes were clearly better designed cars than the japanese makes. 10 years ago, Mercedes had the highest reliability of any make according to JD Power. Today Mercedes is at the bottom of the barrell in terms of reliability. Fast forward to today, the RL, M and GS are a harbinger of things to come from Japan, these cars are clearly technologically superior to anything out there today. If BMW\Mercedes does not get off thier butts, and start making better cars, the next versions of the RL, M and GS will clearly blow them out of the water. I'm not bashing european cars, as I am in the market for an 06 530i, but you have to admit Acura, Infiniti and Lexus are putting out some very fine cars.
