Have had several BMWs and, most recently, a MB CL 500. The Lexus doesn't handle quite as good as BMW, nothing does, but it's awfully close. And while the IS 350 6 cylinder is as powerful as the MB 5 liter, it's not quite as smooth, but the Lexus is more fuel efficient. As to luxury, the Lexus IS 350 at the very least equals the others. Any advantages the europeans have over the Lexus are pretty much voided when you consider that you will spend 10, 12, maybe even $20,000 less and get a pretty damn good luxury sports sedan!
Powerful!! Quiet!! Comfortable!! Beautiful!!!
