How was your experience with the 328i compared to the IS so far?

328i had a lot of mechanical problems for me, as a college student I thought I would purchase a more reliable car which led me to Lexus.

2003 Toyota 4Runner V8 Sport Edition. Had over 200k miles and still ran like new. It finally had to go when I got in an accident in 2015. Then I got the IS! I still miss that car though.

I am a former Honda fanboy, there are probably many of us out there.

'95 Acura Integra GSR.

Followed by an 08 Civic Si Sedan, ITR, 09 Civic automatic sedan. Still have my S2000, but Honda and Acura $uck now.

Love my XE30, I would get another one tomorrow over a C class, A4 or 3 series. IDK if it is the NA V6 nostalgia or what.......

Your IS must feel slow by comparison.
