I was swinging by the dealership (Lexus of tacoma at fife WA) to pick up the new brochure and they had a couple cars in. A white one on display and I got to test drive a graphite grey. I was fairly impressed with the E-shift it was quicker than I expected (faster shift than the CL-S) but I would still prefer a manual. The acceleration was smooth through all gears but not really impressive and I did redline it several times. Cornering and lane changes were balanced without much body roll but not quick. The escaine material really keeps you in place in corners and made me wish my Integra had had it. All I can say about the brakes is they are VERY good.
All in all it felt a little less sporty than I expected but it is a very good blend sport and performance and I was surpised how much I liked the E-shift.
