I bought my IS 300 in June and have been driving it as my daily driver for 7 months now. So far the car has lived up to or exceeded all of my expectations. It's not going to out perform some of the new sports cars (G35, 330, etc.) but the IS 300 has what a lot of those cars lack. The Lexus name. Not saying I drive a Lexus I'm better than you but the Lexus name that says this car was quality built, reasonably priced and fun to drive. The 2JZ-GE engine is under powered compared to a lot of today's sports sedans but it is easily modified to be an unstoppable street machine. I highly recommend this car. You will not be disappointed.
This car provides the PERFECT mix of performance, reliability and luxury that I was looking for.
