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?

True enough Bruce.

I also find it amazing that they listened to their customers and the market and in only 3 short years made the changes necessary to run neck and neck with an M3 on both the straights and a track.

LSD was not an option or available for the '08's.

Competition like this is a great thing as it only forces companies to work harder and bring better products to market.
