Both cars have their own merits to stand on. Buy whatever makes you happy.
I'd say this is still the first generation IS-F, with just the first set of minor tweaks.


The IS350 was almost there, but really not with it in terms of a ride/handling compromise. Same with the IS-F. Haven't sampled the latest IS350, but the current iteration of the IS-F (along with the first iteration of the LF-A) shows that Lexus is now a really important player as far as gearheads are concerned.

Who woulda thunk it?
