The IS 350 has everything you could want in a car - speed, looks, and luxury - all for a great price. A comparable 3 series would cost thousands more, and in my honest opinion, this car trumps the BMW in both exterior and interior quality. I purchased one in Obsidian black and I still can't take my eyes off it. Trust me -- this car is worth every penny.
