Once you get to know the car (which takes a while for ex BMW drivers) then only do you begin to fully appreciate it. It's a good looking car with faetures that I now can't do without. Once you know how, there's an incredible amount of power on tap at the flip of a few buttons and paddles. It's very light on fuel on the open road and is a great alternate to a BMW if you're looking for individuality and a car that can behave and perform in almost any way you desire. Handling and suspension is where the BMW wins though, but in every other department you'd be better off with the IS. Oh and BMW finance is better.
Rear camera, top class sat-nav integrated with media player that boasts incredible Mark Levinson surround sound, hot and cold aircon through the seats, auto-level lights that turn with the wheel, touch screen control for everything, voice commands, blue-tooth capability, quiet drive.
Suspension, integrate sat-nav with speed limit info on the roads, blind spot where windscreen pillars are. Active steering slight delay sometimes when foot not on the accelerator and you are rolling downhill. Cameraview disappears when call comes in. Having to accept the on screen message etc
