    Best Car I Have Owned. — I test drove the G35, G37. Both were much harsher at shifting and accelerating. The Lexus is silky smooth to 60. With traction off it will spin out the back tires easily. I also test drove the 335 which I enjoyed more.... but... as I was buying and not leasing, I did not want to risk owning a bimmer. Also, at the time it was 10k more and had no back up camera. Drove the TL as well but that was the year the ugly grill came out... and it was just not the same level car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable and fun to drive.  I have owned it 4 years.  Great car.

    Cons: Slightly harsh ride.  Wish it was faster.

    Great Car — The navigation display seems outdated to me--had a 2008 Mercedes C300 before this and liked the navigation display (and the entire system) better. Sometimes the navigation self corrects to a ridiculous, out-of-the-way route, when my phone (correctly) tells me I can just drive straight and get there. Way more power than the benz, though--much more fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good power.  Very quiet, smooth ride.  Sharp looking interior, exterior.

    Cons: Rear seats don't fold down.  Paddle shifters useless unless you really know the shift points.  Mileage a bit better than projected on the highway, bit worse than projected in the city.

    My Is350 Lexus — I love this car, it truly is the favourite from any car i have owned. The only down side is restraint...ie, I have to use restraint every time I drive anywhere coz I would love to put my foot down and really see how fast it goes!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 307HP cant be wrong...especially in a little car like this!!

    Cons: That I dont live in Germany and drive the Autobahn!!
