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.
Thanks for the feedback. I previously had a 2004 325i, which was a better car in many ways to the new 3 series. I especially miss how nimble and connected the old 3 series felt. The new 4 cyl is rev happy, but throttle response is unpredictable, and overall, it just handles like a large bulky car. I'm glad that Lexus came up with a car to fill the space the 3 series used to occupy.

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.
Another conquest buyer for Lexus. Congrats. Welcome to Lexus!

Dude, that looks awesome! Congrats. My 350 F Sport will be delivered to my house today. I wanted the nebula gray originally, but started to fall in love with the obsidian. Found a rare color combo(so I'm told) of the obsidian with red interior. That's what I wanted and got. In order to post pics on here, do I need to use a photo sharing site?

By the way, way to take pictures! No offense to some, but a lot of people take bad pictures of their cars so good on you!
