What an awesome car! I'd been waiting for a while to try before I buy. Compared vs BMW, Audi and Infiniti. Hands down, this is the one to beat. BMW is a great car, but the IS beats it with combination of power, handling and let's not forget Lexus quality. Would love to see them combine the 3.5 with AWD. I thought I'd miss the stick, but the paddle shifters are so natural and intuitive, I'm fine without it. This is the first manual shift automatic that I feel really provides a manual feel.
Paddle Shifter POWER!! Killer Sound System Best Nav screen I've seen.
