Having been in and around the Mercedes, BMW, and Lexus business for the last 10 years, I have not yet seen a new luxury/performance vehicle that will have the impact of the new 2006 LEXUS IS250/IS350...I dare any reader out to drive the 3 Series BMW and then the new Lexus IS....BMW's lionshare of the young, hip, performance-based buyer HAS SIMPLY COME TO AN END! Needless to say, this is one of the best Luxury/Performance cars on the market at any price, much less for the 32k that I paid! Warning: do not go to the dealership unless in the position to purchase--- swore I would never buy a brand new car ever again... then I saw it, sat in it, and drove it!!!... And 32 mpg -- are you serious!
Price, performance and luxury unmatched by any other car in segment... period!
