Awesome. Congrats on getting the best car in its class and welcome to CL.

Which car did you own, consider purchasing, and why the IS?

I actually owned a 2013 328i Sport Line that I got March of 2013.. Unfortunately I was slammed into by a drunk driver and the car was totaled out.

Original Plan was to get a 428i (Sexy car too) but I decided to check out other options before making my final decision. Ended up driving the IS350, ATS 2.0T, Q50, and a few Others (Similar Lease #'s). I drove the IS F sport and instantly fell in love with the performance, interior, and the package as a whole. Plus my family has owned Lexuses in the Past so I was familiar with their quality and service. To Top it off my payments for this loaded 350 dropped by $75 over my Mid-level 328.

Beautiful car! Actually, I currently own a 2012 BMW 328i Sport Line and have been considering replacing it with an IS350 F Sport - I'd love any input you can give comparing the 2 cars. Thanks!

Thanks!

Frankly I've been really happy having this over the 328i. The Steering in the Lexus is better, the weighting and feedback is really balanced vs the 3 being too light outside of sport/sport+ mode. Its also quieter while cruising (prolly because the V6s are generally quieter than Inline 4s). Dynamically I have to give it to the IS. It really does handle and feel more stable driving to me.

The Engine is probably the major difference. Not the fairest comparison doing the 328i vs the IS350 but speaking from the daily driving perspective they both have their ups and downs. The 328i is much more rev happy and gets better MPG (expected) however its a little buzzy sounding and you do have to give it some extra throttle to get it up to speed. The IS on the other hand, you can get up to speed real quick but still keep the RPMs fairly low. Also I LOVE the sound of the engine in the IS, just sounds so throaty.
