While I also like the IS, I'd have to agree with you. I've driven the car on a number of occasions, and it exhibits nothing but numbness in terms of feedback. It's nicely appointed, aesthetically pleasing, and even priced well for what it offers (...amenity wise), but it's ultra boring and uninspiring.

It also has a smaller back seat than the BMW. And furthermore, its not straightforward to order one to your liking. You have to wait. And wait. And if you're lucky they'll build one to your specifications.
