Leased IS 350 for 4 years starting in 2006. Loved this car. Gave it back in expectations of moving to Mercedes or BMW. Test drove 328,335 and C class, and immediately missed my 350's acceleration. Can't beat its value for horsepower, handling, looks. Had no issues with it. Drove it 52,000 miles. Loved it just as much after 4 years.Awesome power yet handled very well for city driving. Would not recommend for tall people, I'm 5'10. Backseat is decent, but don't use. I'm buying either a '06, '07 again. Adding navi, bluetooth, heated/cooled seats in next one.
Acceleration, Handling(leans into corners,very fun), Turn radius, Golf clubs fit in trunk, Comfortable seats, soft leather, 4 door sports car, classy interior.
Cant rotate tires, difficult to find good deal for tires.$750-1500 for new tires. Paddle shifter are fun occasionally. Needs manual tranny.
