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.
Great handling feel. The car feels 200-
300 lbs lighter than it is. Smooth
straight 6. Great manual gearbox.
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
