...GS300 ...just think for as little as $8K more you could've had a real lexus rather than a top of the line Corolla...

Well, the GS300 is really nice, but I still prefer my IS. It's fast, compact, handles great, and is just what I can afford.
Oh, and it looks great too.

The GS300 is a totally different car that is sold to a totally different buyer. Compared to the IS300, the GS300 has a much softer suspension and is designated a family car. If I was married, I could picture my wife driving the GS3 taking the kids to soccer practice.... Grishulia why are you comparing apples to oranges here?

...well ...comparing IS300 to ES300 didn't seem right... and I bet comparing IS300 to a Corolla has been done already... and I bet Corolla was a better value...

Too bad ? What makes a GS300 a much much better car than an IS300 ? The Lexus manual, Lexus nameplate, and Lexus dealer where I bought my IS300 from would suggest to me that my IS300 is a real Lexus. If I wanted a bigger, softer Lexus, I would get a GS400, and not settle for a GS300.

What makes you think that any of us here would rather have a slower, bigger, heavier, and less sporty Lexus ?

On that subject, here are some more SAD notes. I could have bought Levi jeans instead of Hilfiger when I went shopping yesterday. I could have went to Red Lobster instead of Razzoo's for dinner last night. I could have taken my girl to see "Meet the Parents" instead of "Charlie's Angel's". I could have stayed at a Holiday Inn instead of Ramada. My point is, I could have done all those things, but I chose to spend MY money on what best suited ME. Just like all the IS owners here. Understood? Grow up, and get a life!

Grishulya,

IS300 IS a better car.

Now, in a language you can really understand: "Kogda u tenya budut den'gi togda budesh vypendrivat'sya"

Using same language.... :"esli bi u menia ne bilo deneg togda bi ya obidelsia... a poka pohozhe chto u tebia est' dengi na plohie igrushki..."

For the rest of you... Lost_soul is really sorry he bought the IS300 and wishes he would've bought anything but the IS300...

I would have picked the compact size, and extra sportiness of the IS300 over the GS300, and the $8K difference makes the decision even more clear...

Most of us here never considered the A4 against the IS300. Many of us did, however, consider the S4. In my case, I chose the IS300 because it was less money and looks better.

As for the GS300, it's too big and more money.

Oh, and if you're gonna compare the IS to a Toyota, at least compare it to the right one, the Altezza. The Corolla is a fwd econocar in an entirely different class.

And here I am, responding to trolls...

Hey... compare apples to apples... as EricK mentioned before... If an A4 has a minor lead over IS300 the S4 has a major one... not even comparable to an IS300... and you know it as well as I do!!!
