No boasting intended- honestly. You are correct- both are nice cars. However one is in a performance league well above another. Why get on my ass and drive aggressively? One driver is pushing his car to the limit and narrowly avoiding death while the other is sipping his coffee and looking for a new cd... Harldy a race, wouldn't you say?

However, that's exactly what I don't understand.
The power rating and price differential between the IS300 and the S4 is even smaller than the same comparison between the S4 and the new M3.
How do these magazine people figure these classes out? The new M3(for now) and the Viggen are two-door coupes, and they are to be compared with 4-door sedans?? While the new performance sedan from Lexus, namely the IS300, is to be set in the same class as family sedans like the A4 and 3-series.
