That said my next car won't be a Lexus, they don't reward you for pushing the car, same can be said for the new 3-5 series BMW, gotten way too big.
If the IS drives as good as BRZ or FT86, watch out!
Apples and oranges.
Nothing in the entry level luxury sport class (BMW 3 series included) will handle as good as a BRZ/FR-S/FT86 on the track.
Those cars are built
to have monster handling for a reasonable price (but with mediocre power and limited luxury). They're not even the same class of car.
The BMW 3 series is the king of handling within
the entry level luxury sport class where cars are generally much heavier.
