Faster than a Boxster, 540, E430. More comfy than the BMW. Better control layout than the others. Better build quality in my experience too.
JM LExus is THE dealership.
BMW guy was snotty and insisted on going on the test drive.
MERC dealer wanted my credit card before allowing a test drive (right!)
Lexus chap said "take it out for the day" and I did!
Engine, controls,build quality.
Tighter suspension on the 430. A manual gearbox (no chance I suspect). MORE TRD bits an pieces.
A SUPERCHARGER PLEASE!
