I'm currently looking to buy my first new car, well not buy but lease. I currently own a 2001 Mercedes E430 4matic as well as a 1998 Honda accord. We were originally looking at the Optimas and while we were in the showroom my wife and I were like omg what is that? It was a blue limited and man it looked nice. Right now I'm still on the fence about the Cadenza or going with the Lexus ES 350. They are priced very close to each other except the lexus would be without the technology stuff such as adaptive cruise, etc to be in line price wise. I have yet to drive the Lexus but will def do so. What cars were you guys looking at as well before going with the cadenza?
