BMW or Lexus.

And does Lexus IS350 sound good for stock?

"Better" and "nicer" are entirely subjective. It's all about preference. I prefer whichever car is on the right. Too lazy to figure out which one it is. I'm betting it's the BMW.

If you like noise, by all means get the toyota. If you want torque and power, you get the turbocharged BMW.

The front end on the new IS is a travesty. They simply ruined that car and I am a big fan of the outgoing IS350 and ISF. Any vehicle that intends to exude power and athleticism should not be saddled with awful misshapen beady little headlights.

I like it. I've seen it i person and it looks much better.. For some reason this car doesn't look great from photos. But in person it is nice, agressive but also elegant at the same time..
