My frame of reference, my last car, was a BMW 3-series so I definitely miss the handling. But had I wanted a car that handled perfectly, I would have gotten a BMW. I opted for the Lexus because it offers the silkiest, smoothest ride of anything I've driven.
Another 75 hp would make this car near flawless, but not at the premium required to get a 430.
Really good stock stereo. Power setting. Heated seats. Dual zone climate control. Memory seat, power lumbar.
Paint quality just slightly better than good nail polish. Radio controls on the wheel. More wood in the dash.
