My IS350 replaced my 2004 Nissan 350Z.

I miss the stiff sporty suspension of the Z, but my new Lexus blows everything else away.

Order IS 350 tomorrow to replace 2004 Volvo S60R AWD/6-speed/18's. I'll miss the AWD but I believe I will enjoy the 350 a lot more. From styling to performance.

Purchased IS250 manual to go along with my 97 CRV. Thought about Audi A3, but reliability issues scared me. I plan on keeping my new car beyond 5 years.

Sold my almighty 2005 Nissan Titan LE Crew Cab 4x4 ( 8000 miles on her) 305 HP beast with Borla dual exhaust and Aem Bruteforce intake. I had her for 10 months , then i got the IS. No i am not a redneck ! Before the TITAN i had the 2002 BMW 330i with Supersprint exhaust and the Benfer intake. I do miss my TITAN alot.

Sure do miss the handling and steering feel on my 2002 Audi S4. I thought it looked great inside and out, too. Sure don't miss the noise and harsh ride.

Sadly parted with my 2000, VR6 Jetta, Silver/Black. Loved the power on demand, responsiveness and sports handling of that car. Never had major problems, but time to move on ..
