I like it more today than when I bought

2002 Lexus IS 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Review
I love this car! This car doesn't get the respect it deserves from auto journalists - it's like they didn't want to belive Lexus could build such a great sports sedan on its first try. I have several 3-series in my family and this car is more communicative and fun to drive than any of them (even the 330i w/sport package). When you compare this to the 325i (same price), I can't give the nod to BMW in any area other than maybe the dash design.
Favorite Features
Great handling feel. The car feels 200- 300 lbs lighter than it is. Smooth straight 6. Great manual gearbox.
Suggested Improvements
Like everyone says, this car could really use another 30hp. I would like a slightly stiffer suspension and less roll but that's just me. The ride/handling balance is really pretty darn good.
