Sounds like you let Lexus woo your sense with buttons and gadgets rather than acceleration, grip and power. None of which the IS300 has.
Lexus touts it's IS300 as better than the BMW and Audi. Of course, they use the 323i and A4 1.8T as examples too.
As far as styling,.... the rice-buy look cheapens the Lexus image tremendously. I like the half-hearted design of the rear tailights. What started as nice wrap-around lenses became the rice-clear-round-accord style.
So a $34k IS300 blows away the M3 in your opinion?
Don't see to many SCCA Lexus racers out there.
Sorry man, if some leather, buttons and $34k buys your senses have a nice day and you'll live with your regrets forever.
