Default An anomaly?

Looking at the demographics so far, I kinda feel outnumbered and a little strange .

Default Looking at the IS350 but not sure yet...

Male/28/East Indian/Married (recently)

I currently drive a 2000 BMW 323ci with 85k miles. I've had the car for 5 1/2 years now and it's averaging around 15k a year. I think it's about time to get a new car. My price range is questionable as I am looking for the best value for the money. It can be anywhere between 35k to 55k depending on the value and luxury.

I would be paying for it by myself. However, I would be trading in my BMW which my parents bought me...so that would help with payments. I got the BMW as a College Graduation present. I now make roughly 100k as a commodities analyst so I know I can afford it. However, I still have a house to think about (my wife and I are renting). My wife is bringing around 80k but that might change if we have kids. She is currently driving a 2001 RAV 4 AWD which is extremely practical and which we will keep around for awhile.

I have been looking for 2 months now and I finally got to see the car at the Lexus event at Belmont, NY. It's a great car but I am a little dissapointed in the price for the IS350. I keep on thinking to myself is it worth 41k+? Why not spend a little more and either get a GS, 5-series, or an A6? Heck...even the Porsche Boxter 'starts' at 45k. I was hoping it would be between 35k and 40k. Also, the reason why I'm not going to get another 3 series?...maintenance headaches. Once the warranty runs out, your screwed. There are so many little electical problems that I have to deal with.

Anyway, I blabbed too much...I'll stop here. In the meantime, I'll keep looking and weighing my options.

Not in the same league but here is one more option, M3 starts at $47K.

@ $45K there are so many options. Good luck with your future purchase.

Male, 26, Swiss, IS250 M/T fully loaded. I should get it within next two weeks!

No IS350 for Europe. BTW, a fully loaded IS250 A/T costs over 60 kUSD over here!
