Review2,000 miles later I am happy I picked
the IS300 over the BMW 330i. Even after
the $2200 chrome wheel option, I saved
almost $3k versus the BMW and the car
has received more attention than it's
popular counterpart. Potholes in the
Motor City are plentiful, but the stiff
ride is confident and composed. I'm 6'
4'' and have ample headroom even with
the moonroof option. Strong braking and
acceleration compare favorably to the
BMW but the shift gate can be a bit
tight at full throttle. Nonetheless,
this car is a pleasure to own.
Best FeaturesCockpit is serene even with full throttle. Braking and steering response is solid. Escaine leather is durable and comfortable especially in hot weather.
Worst FeaturesArmrest/central console lacks space and functionality. Rear seats much more cramped than the BMW. True lack of grip on dash flat space (below rear view mirror) results in missiles flying into back seat with full acceleration.
