    i find it quite cumbersome around corners

    cool thing i like is the gauge sweep at startup like an STI :mamoru:

    i thought about a new IS when i was car shopping, but the general feel i got from it was that it had a comfort/luxury first, performance second attitude.

    Then i test drove an STi and made up my mind. I like the guage sweep too.

    wow, pussy hurt or something, maybe some sandy vag going on? :ugh2:

    They bill it as a sports sedan. I expected more sport than what it had to offer. Given the OP's "cumbersome in the corners" remark, i was simply agreeing with him.

    I drove an IS250 manual tranny...even with the stick it just had no balls whatsoever..could barely get out of its own way. But it had the "X" sport package, with 18" wheels and supposedly a sport suspension. I thought turn-in response was very good, and to be honest, it rode a bit rougher over bumps than i expected for a lexus. the regular suspension setup of course is smoother.

    Then I drove an IS350. Power was off the chain. Makes you *almost* not miss the lack of a manual tranny, cuz the auto is quite good. I wonder if they will ever come out with another IS300 to balance the huge power difference between motors...

    How do you like your RX8? What cars have u owned prior?

    i had a WRX before, i was inbetween deciding on a G35 coupe or an SVT Lightning

    i drove the RX8 and just fell in love with the handling (salesman was nice enough to let me take it off the regular route and into a great twisty road)

    the G35 was in an accident and they refused to drop the price :ugh2:
