Congrats on your new IS. Looks great!

When you get a chance, please post your feedback on how it compares to your previous IS. Several of of us here like myself have had a 2IS and bought the 3IS totally on faith so any real-world impressions (whether good or bad) are very welcome!

It came with the Bridgestone Turanza's. I have had those on my other IS's. I can't remember if my last car had the Turenza's or had the Potenza's. These tires are filled with nitrogen which I've never had before
Noise Vibration Harshness

Basically, is the car quieter, same, or noisier than the 2IS at both low and high speeds considering wind, tire, and engine noise. Also, does the engine feel any smoother or same as 2IS?

With the windows rolled up the car is the same quiet ride it's always been. Soundproofing is as good as always been and it's so quiet sometimes you can hardly hear the engine going


I did notice one interesting thing I like to drive with the drivers window down and the sunroof open. In my previous versions of the IS this was almost impossible to do because of the amount of wind that would come into the car. I noticed when I do this on the new car I don't get that wind motion in my face like I used to it all. The dealer said that they redesigned this by adding these littte wind deflector's on the outside of the car near the Sideview mirrors. If you want to see a picture of them I can take it for you this is something that was definitely added to the outside of the car as my previous IS 2012 did not have this. So I definitely notice the decrease in the amount of wind when you drive with the sunroof open and the drivers window down

Hehe, I know what you're talking about the "spoiler" right by the bottom of the A-pillar where a mirror would normally be mounted, but by all means, please post more pics!

Bruteshot -- sweet. I almost bought from Lexus of Glendale but Longo had what I wanted color wise. Did they give you an option on the front plate?
