    Then this car, although I wish I could afford the GS, its still pretty nice.
    I get the RWD/Nav/Luxo parts of my wishlist PLUS paddleshift and button start (2 things I thought was out of my reach)
    Test drove the new IS350 and its very impressive. Very quick launch from a stand still compared to my 3.6L CTS. Handling feels more responsive too. A recent C&D comparison gives the CTS better skidpad numbers but the IS feels quicker through the corners. The IS interior is much quieter and has better quality materials.

    I am 6'3" 205lbs and the IS has more headroom than my CTS. The IS rear seats are not where I would want to sit for extended trips. The CTS definately wins there.

    Re: New Lexus IS

    I've been seeing them on the road here and they ARE very impressive.. I'd rather have an IS than a GS now.. The IS is small, but the interior is more comfortable and impressive to me.. I don't think it'll steal too many CTS sales, however.. The styling is very nice, but the CTS is still a bit more impressive - to me... Other than the interior, that is... The IS interior is perfect...

    Anything has to be more reliable than my CTS. Had to call Roadside Assistance yesterday because it wouldn't start. Add one more problem to my list.

    Visited my local Lexus dealer today and put down a deposit on a new IS350, should arrive in sixty days.

    I will provide some feedback as soon as I get a few miles on the IS350.
