...And I liked it! Extremely comfy seats, nice engine sound with very fast paddle shift, cute little throttle blip on downshift, very responsive and nimble. I really need a bigger garage.

And it has the 6-speed. The 8-speed should be even better.

You need an AWD car to get to the hospital in the winter

How annoying was the hump under your right leg?

I drove the IS350 F-Sport yesterday and feel in love with the sound and power. The ride was much smoother than the IS250. It is a no brainer between the two. My shopping for cars have now come to an end.
