True. If the IS500 ends up being twice the price of a CTR, V8 or not, no thanks. It's not a full blown performance focused ISF, which in manual form would absolutely entice me.True, it's in the luxury sports sedan column but... the m340i i can take to the track... incredible performance overall with the luxury not to mention most likely cheaper... but we haven't determined the price of the IS500 yet IS500 doesn't scream "IS F!" Instead, it's a page taken from the playbooks of BMW and Audi, which have long offered such midgrade performance models.
you plan on driving the LE as often as you could?When i bought my 2017 CW, i truly believed I would keep it for 10+ years as a summer car. But then I ordered the LE and was planning to keep the 2017 as a daily. Fast forward a few more months, I got a new job opportunity and had to move province. With the new living arrangement, I cannot keep 3 cars. So the 2017 was traded-in when I picked up the LE.
Moral of the story: life is unpredictable and sometimes you just have to make compromises.
It's not, but it's also not the only reason to buy a car. Lots of metrics to go by, even with performance/sports cars.I think Illinois does have it's winding roads, maybe a track or 2..? Seek and you'll shall find Yes we have that luxury in California... didn't know it was taboo in this forum.
