    I have a Company Car as i drive around 50K miles a year - lucky me eh? lol.

    I have had Audi's for years and currently have an A4 1.9 TDI.

    It is due for renewal - hoorah!

    A couple of guys in work have just ordered the Lexus IS 220d - the SE spec. It looks great on the website but am a little bit scared to move away from Audi as i do love them!

    I can basically have any car with 4 doors for the same price as an Audi A4 - about 26K i think...

    What would you go for?

    It does look great, it was a shock to see the both side by side - the audi looks like an old mans car in comparison!! :eek:

    Apparantly silver is the most common colour of car! I can believe that too. I had a silver courtesy car for a while last year and every other car on the road seemed to be silver. When I was shopping for my new car the only stipulation to the salesman was it MUSTNT be Silver - any other colour not silver lol

    I think for that gorgeous Lexus you want it in a nice head turning colour ;)

    Blacks lovely! Ive got a black car a really shiny black and I just love it. It wasnt my first choice I must be honest but getting the model I wanted was a nightmare and I couldnt afford to be choosy with colour.

    Im a regular at the hand wash car wash place, so much so Ive got a loyalty card!!! How bad is that! Still at £2.50 its totally worth it.

    i like the Lexus a bit more exceutive than the Audi
    work out what they are going to cost you in company car tax. i got a BMW and a collegue chose a Freelander..she ended paying much more than me when we worked out the tax

    Never been an Audi person myself but must admit we rented the same model as yours in Portugal last month and the performance was lush. Cruising the motorways (which are fab) at 180kph was fantastic. But my heart would be with the Lexus. I love them.
