Dont get me wrong I love the look of the is-f and love the sound of the benz but bmw as the best car all around.

isf 13 sec behind on nurburgring.
c63 is 8 sec behind on nurburgring

and they both have more power then the m3 and if we compared m5 4 door to 4 door - lol. not even close.
Except that the car in point, the IS - apart from the diesel sold in Europe - doesn't share any key components with Toyota.

And come on, IS-F is Lexus' first attempt at a super sedan, something MB and BMW has perfected since the early 80:es! If I'm BMW/MB I'd be scared enought that they are that close with their attempt.
Have you even been to the Ring?
Like Joe Cole puts it, the lap times are fine and dandy. Put some laps in yourself and come back and tell us it is the be all end all measuring stick for production cars. It is not.

This comes from someone who used to pick up my pay check from Audi, and has owned Mercs as well as BMWs, which is what I am driving currently.
No one in the industry takes Lexus, or Toyota for that matter, lightly. I don't know about Canada but in most parts of the world, they are a top notch company from top to bottom.
