Bought my IS 350 used and love it. Drove a G35, 328 and A4 -- none of them come close. Critics say the IS doesn't handle like the Beemer, but then I don't race mine on a track. All I know is that it takes interstate cloverleafs like a pro and accelerates like a demon with the refinement and quality that only Lexus can provide. It doesn't get great gas mileage and there is not much rear seat leg room, but it is similar to other cars in its class. A suggestion for those in northern climates -- invest in snow tires.
