    Chevy Cruze is the #1 seller in that class right now.

    In the parking lot at work, a new white ML350 and a black 535 xDrive.

    Saw my first 2014 IS on the road. Non F-sport model, I was just a few blocks from the dealer and the car still had a window sticker, driver could have been a salesman. Also a white Gran Coupe.

    Still hardly see many Verano's on the roads which I don't get...besides being more expensive than the Cruze, it's such a better vehicle and it looks nicer to boot. I saw one and a new ILX at a traffic light the other day and liked the Verano a bit better actually. I have sat in a few at the dealership and the seats are very comfortable also. Call me silly, but the Verano is the only vehicle that I'd trade into right now...strange but true!

    I agree, the Verano is a good looking vehicle.

    In the parking lot at work today, a couple of new CR-V's, both white and parked side by side.
    Also, a new 3 in the visitor area.

    Saw a 2014 IS F-Sport, but this one was again not far from the dealer, and had a window sticker. The cow catcher grille will take some time to become normal.

    Also saw a couple Teslas, what I think was an S8, and late model (facelift) CL550.

    I saw a Chevy Volt during my morning commute today. First one I have seen.

    I stopped and looked at a new IS 350 last weekend at the dealer, very sharp car and a nice improvement over the outgoing model. Will probably drive one when the lease on the G37x is up later this year.

    It makes the old one look ancient. Anyone buying a 2013 IS right now better get a nice deal.

    I test drove one - go for the F-Sport, for the trick gauges alone (and a few other niceties). It's less claustrophobic inside (I didn't care for the A-pillars in the old one) - and from inside, you can't see the front end :shades:

    and from inside, you can't see the front end

    I didn't like the new Lexus front end at first, but after awhile it becomes less offensive.

    The same effect has happened with the "big mouth bass" front ends on the Fusion and new Avalon. I'm not a huge fan, but don't hate it as much. I guess you just get used to it.

    A new ES350 and an new Civic coupe.

    If other designers copy it (and they will, as recently the profession is not the most creative), maybe it will normalize. Still kind of iffy though. I see the weird chipmunk cheek Infiniti face is in competition.

    I don't mind the Ford, it's an Aston homage. The Avalon is odd on two levels - the big maw, and the fact that it has an upper and lower grille.

    Saw a new Kia Cadenza on i95 yesterday near Baltimore. It was a metallic brown, not flattering for the car.

    I finished reading this sci-fi book about a cockroach that wakes up one morning and finds himself turned into a human being. So anyway, he moves to Manhattan (where else?) and buys himself a Lincoln 4D in dark brown metallic! :)

    Lol! IMO brown cars need to go back to the 70s where they came from.

    I liked the khaki Honda Element but it was more of a tan I guess. Pretty "rare" bird. Some of the old brown Volvos weren't too bad.

    Brown is for UPS trucks! :P

    I'm sure some of the old brown Volvo wagons were confused with UPS trucks. :D

    On Mercedes Pagoda SLs and Porsche 911s. At least it's not just another boring shade of grey/silver.

    Two shades of Metallic brown are on the current Porsche configurator. Make mine Mahogany Metallic.

    Brown is also awesome on a MB 6.9, and can work on a W126 (not my first choice, but not my last). I think the E63 wagon is offered in brown, that could be workable.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,385
    Yep, dark brown was popular on 60s and 70s Benzes and went very well with an orangey-brown upholstery (MB-Tex?) they had.
