    Not sure if you have seen or heard this, but I am sitting watching TV last night (US TV, obviously) when a commercial comes on showing a Lexus which has "Auto Parallel Park" as a feature. Sure enough, the car can monitor the car behind and in front, turns the wheel, and reverses into the space perfectly. WTH?

    It was a Lexus, and we know that no one under the age of 60 drives a Lexus :whistle2: , but is this really required?

    And on another note, what's the plural of Lexus? Is it Lexi?
