First of all, it's a head turner. great design which looks even nicer than the GS in my opinion. the interior is wicked lush, yet simple and functional. All the controls are intuitive and where you would want them to be. The 18 inch off set low profile Dunlops stick to the ground like white on rice (but this was an option I think). The seats are the most comfortable "chic" seats i've ever rested my fanny on (usually, well styled seats are uncomfy for me). And though it's purely a toy, the paddle style tipronic tranny is a blast, though the plastic used for them seems kinda cheap. Otherwise, gas mileage is great and of course, amazing Lexus customer service for less 35k.
The smart key unlock/lock and push button start. LED white interior lights are wicked cool and unique. tiptronic transmission. Amazing looks inside and out.
Better plastic on the paddle shifters. moving the position of the window buttons on the driver side. Maybe add seat heaters/coolers as a standard feature.
