It's all about what you want and being secure in your decision. I tested the bmw 325, 330, and a 328 (in 2000), a A4 and the IS.
The IS won, obviously, but not on one point in particular. Everyone has their own "equation" in their head, where they weight each aspect of cars, and calculate what suits them best based on this equation. I found cost to be important, so that weighed heavily against the 330 which was much more with all else being equal, and performance was only marginally better.
Without getting long winded, as this is not an easy decision, I think you should ignore the "vandalism stories" you see on the boards because this car is just as much a target as any other IMHO.
