Default Purchasing: IS350 or GS450h ?

I'm making the switch from Audi 'been driving audi's for almost 10 years now' to now going with Lexus. After much thought and review buying a used model with low miles seems to be the best option for me right now but I can't decide which model to go with... So of course here I am on this site asking the experts. I enjoy the quick performance and sleek look of the IS350 but the big body feel of the GS450H is great as well. Of course the GS is a quick car,I am not sure is I would get bored driving the big GS vs me throwing the IS around turns.

Opinions and suggestions will be greatly appreciated from everyone. Would like to know the highs and lows of both cars.

Thank yo

Ironically I just did a review of the GS450h today:

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/car-...us-gs450h.html

and here's a review done between the IS350 and Q50 so you get an idea of how the car drives

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/car-...xus-is350.html

The IS and GS are geared towards two different demographics, but one thing they share in common this they are both the Ultimate Driving Machines now dethroning the 3-Series and 5-Series respectively as the best handling cars in their segments.

I like the new IS but to me there are too many compromises to the Luxury feel which took a backseat to Sport. The GS on the contrary blends Sport and Luxury in harmony. Unfortunately though the technology aka Navi is already dated vs the IS.
