Test drove 2002 Grey IS

I test drove for the first time today an automatic 2002 IS. Although I'm looking to buy the manual, I wanted to test drive the automatic just to get the feel of the car. Some things that I was paying particular attention to were:
1) Pick-up and speed
2) Steering and suspension
I was very impressed with the way it handled turns and drove overall, however I'm kind of skeptical about speed. I recently test drove a manual V6 Jetta and found it to be very comparable to the speed of the IS. I was actually expecting the IS to have much better pick-up and speed, has anybody else experienced this also?

Have you try to turn off the Traction Control, Power button ON, and shift to Manual(M) instead of D(Auto). Its will pickup better by doing that (atleast it does for me).
