People are dumb and make a lot of false assumptions about cars. Driving a luxury brand confuses people, even if the car is 10+ yrs old and cost less than a years worth of bus passes.

When people ask what kind of car I have and when I say a BMW a Lexus and a Z
Sounds impressive but they are all old the Lexus will be eligible for antique tags soon.
