Wow! I couldn't be any happier with this car. I drove the IS 300 for 3 years and loved it, but the IS 350 blows the IS 300 away. Looks and quality are upgraded and the power and performance are incredible. My buddy drives a 2006 330i and was gloating about it until he drove the IS 350 and now he has buyers remorse. Lexus will not confirm or promote the ability to do so, but contrary to the press reviews, the VDIM can be disabled. It requires some input in a specific order on the brake and emergency brake, but it can be done.
Fast, fast, fast. Handling is awesome. Cooled seats are a must in Texas. ipod port. 18 inch wheels.
BRAKE DUST...Its pretty bad. You can't close the center console without smashing the ipod cord or any other accessory that you are powering from the center console power port.
