At the same price point, in a BMW 3-series offers a relatively noisy, vibration prone 4 cylinder with a turbo that is likely to be a long term reliability issue point (especially in a BMW).

Someone who is currently in Malaysia would have to confirm but no, I don't believe the same speed limits apply.

I do agree that getting the dealership to invest the time and effort to diagnose...

The IS250 comes in at 7.2 seconds for 0-60 in most published tests, I don't know why Lexus says 7.7 unless they are trying not to disappoint AWD buyers. Sorry you didn't catch the fact that I never...

The wheels in the third link would be about $2,400 US. Slick looking wheels but maybe not so much covered in brake dust from high friction pads. That's one area gunmetal color wheels do well.
