    Good choice. I drove the A-4 and it made my right leg hurt because it had to rub against the consol. I've had two Audis and I loved them but the A-4 just doesn't have enough room for me as the driver.

    Thanks all for the input.

    P.S. BTW it is charcoal grey with black leather interior.

    Just saw this, I'm late as usual. You made the right choice, my Son-in Law has the IS300, and I get to drive it frequently when I'm in Florida where he lives. It's a terrific car as many others have already said. But notice he lives in "Florida"- NO SNOW or ICE to put up with! Oh yeah, he just loves it, & had it for 3-1/2 years with no problems!!! (He bought it one year old)

    i'm gonna have to go with Carla on this one. I dig the Caddys.
    But, from what I have erad in the car mags, that IS300 is a bad-ass car. reads like it would e be a lot of fun to drive. and you can now get it with AWD. And i read somewhere that Lexus is toying with the idea of slapping a turbo or two on it. to try and take some of the market from Subaru(WRX) and Mitsubishi(EvoVII)

    Get your mind out of the gutter - it's blocking my view

    I hope it's not too late for you. I had an Audi A6 for 5 years and it was always in the shop. Here is my list of defects and repairs: replaced electronic digital dash, replaced driver seat to fix unrepairable rattles, replaced hinge on driver door to fix squeaks that could not be lubricated, replaced plastic under front bumper due to actual separation from the body (I was not alone. There was afactory recall due to class action in Illinois federal court.), replaced failed electric window motor in driver door, replaced dash bolts that rattled and fell out inside the car, replaced fold down rear seat hardware that froze. All of these items were prescribed as the solution by the Audi dealer. They were not my idea. Needless to say, this vehicle spent many days in the shop. I kept it because my wife liked the ride. Of course, my conclusion is buy a Lexus. Based on talking to other people who have owned an Audi, I have concluded that at least 33% of all Audis have rampant defects. My recommendation is "Never Follow" anyone into an Audi dealership!

    I would have bought a Nissan 340Z but thats just me. Not great in the snow, but what a car. Actually I happened to just avoid a Aston Martin V8 Vanquish in town today, what a car to crash into, imagine the insurance on that. Overall I would think the Lexus is the more practical car, though the new Audi A8 is supposed to be a monster of a car. It would cost you though.
