Advice: Get One!!Very recently I had the privelege of Test Driving the IS350, a brand new Lexus car. I was completely 'BLOWN AWAY' by this IS350; and it is like 'chalk and cheese' compared to the previous IS models. Silent, very fast and with excellent handling. Firstly, it has all the goodies and gizmos the LS430 has, so the luxury side is taken care of. But what really amazed me was the performance right across the band width. o to 60, 30 to 80, and handling like no other. I have drven several 3 series though not the latest, but the IS350 puts paid to all of them. In the glitzy surrounds of Berlin in the middle of the night the IS350 left it's 'mark', out doing and out running the German 'big dogs', and then joining the Autobahn at 110 mph and keeping up with the best of them at 140 mph. This is the first true perforance car Lexus has produced and what a good job they have made of it!!!! Everybody should buy one!
