It's definitely love it or hate it. Heck, I'm still trying to get used to the 2-door styling after having the 4 door for so long.

I had a mustang vert and the IS350. I was looking to consolidate into 1 car that could impress me as a top-down cruiser (ie- the stang) and have the build quality and features of the Lexus.

I went looking at some other cars, but in the end I found the Lexus to be the best of both worlds for me. Also, I got some options I didn't have before in the IS (ie- NAV, HIDs, luxury pkg)

Vert wise--> it's VERY nice compared to the stang. Very little (if any) cowl shake, no rattles, but unfortunately a much smaller trunk.
IS-C wise vs sedan --> very weird driving a similar car to what I had but with no roof. A little less "sporty" to drive (although, I'm running stock susp at the moment), but a very nice cruiser. Also, they've made some subtle changes vs. the 06 that makes it similar but different from what I had before.
