Smile IS300 or supercharged IS200?

Hello!

I'm looking for a Lexus to trade my Toyota for and I was wondering about a few things:

In my area there are VERY rarely IS300's for sale and IS200 that are supercharged. Normal IS200's are plentiful but I think they're too lazy cars.

I don't think there's too much difference between stock IS300 and supercharged IS200 by performance, they're pretty much the same, aren't they? Only thing I can tell by is the IS300's 2JZ-GE engine that makes better sound than 1JZ. But other problem is that most IS300's that I've seen for sale are all automatic (big nope, has to be manual).

I see an IS300 or TTE supercharged IS200 for sale like once in two months, and even then they are most likely automatic or driven over 270 000 kilometers.

So which one is more powerful and/or sounds better? Stock IS300 or supercharged IS200?
Anyone here have experience with either one of these? Any comment is appreciated!

Thanks!

I currently own a is300 supercharged and its very reliable. If you wanna go turbo route then yull need do build the internal a bit to run it reliably.

supercharged IS200 would be more powerful for sure...
