I enjoy driving the 2008 IS350 very much. It is very quick, reliable and comfortable. I also loved the BMW and the Infiniti, but they were both quite a bit louder than the Lexus, plus I feel the Lexus is a much better looking vehicle, especially over the bulbous looking Infiniti. I also think the Lexus graphite alloys are a nice touch to the look of the overall car. The side view of the Infiniti just looks so out of place for some reason. I don't find the look sporty at all. I somewhat agree that the BMW and Infiniti are finer handling vehicles than the Lexus, and both a touch faster, but who lives and drives the curviest roads all the time? 90% of my driving is city/highway, and here it excels. What if those cars go up to 145 mph, and the Lexus goes to 135 mph? Who cares? Am I out drag racing all available BMW's and Infiniti's? Ummm, no. It is noticeably quieter than the competition, and I don't lose sleep that it might be 3/10 of a second slower going 0-60 mph. What is applicable? It is good looking with great resale value, very reliable and rides beautifully for a 4 door sports car. Those claims only sell those in high school or wanabees. Getting serious with mature drivers, this car, as well as the other two are superb machines. One just has to decide what's important. I'm not out to impress anyone with 1/4 second or 1-100 race times...I prefer to just enjoy the incredible abundant power (over 300 horses) and luxurious interior I have available to me, and at the same time in the quietness and comfort of a Lexus. This car makes me smile every time I drive it, and is great for both long and short trips. Check them out side by side...You'll pick the one that's right for you.

We purchased this car for my wife, we both love it! This car is very fast on take off with little effort. The back seat is not made for large or tall individuals, but a great car overall. Hers also has the back up camera, which is great to be able to see what is behind you, voice commands also are a plus on the Nav-System.
Love this ride
Pros: Fast , great one gas for the HP the car makes. Better the the comps. Cons: A bit sug interior
LEXUS IS 350 is Perfection
