If the IS is 2nd, who was 1st? BMW for good mileage?

BMW is first in every car magazine ever, no matter what. They'll say 'true it's more expensive, and slower.. and the 3 series of past have terrible build quality but we're sure this one is different.. but it's a BMW, you just don't understand!'. Car magazines rock! :D

That's so lame the BMW got 1st. I applaud Lexus for adding some juice, but then they f*ck that all up by not having an off switch for the stability control, or a manual. They def made it "softer" or more luxurious.

Well, if the IS460 comes out, maybe that'll be more of the track car with luxury amenities (i.e. M3/S4). I'll also take one with AWD and a sequential gearbox.

Isn't CAR and Driver magazine sponsored by BMW?
Same thing happened when they tested the Mini vs Mazdaspeed, Focus, Golf and Civic.
Although it did alright, the Mini was outranked by the others.
But... it won!
Hail to sponsors!

WOW... the IS350 sure looks bad assed in black in those pics! And those performance numbers... WOW WOW WOW!!! :cool:

I can't believe C&D is that biased that they would still vote BMW #1. Oh well... I won't be driving the BMW in the future... when I retire my IS300... it'll be for the new IS. I think I will also e-mail/write C&D and let them know what I think of their biased test. :rolleyes:
