Nah he didn't.This Episode was very good, but i dindt like the m3 vs IS-F at all. Jezza doesnt make sense some times, and this was one of them. Ok, the IS-F isnt the best looking car in the world, but the BMW 3series won the ugliest car award few seasons ago, and now is looks even better than the Lexus.
Dont be fooled by the ride confort, because the i read many shootouts, and the IS-F was the most confortable, even if doesnt have magnetic ride suspension, and one of those review is actualy the review in top gear website, and Top Gear magazine of those cars. Go to last month top gear magazine and see the pages where they are testing the IS-F, thy find the 8 sepeed gearbox great, 6 gears fo track, and the other foet fuel economy and low noise. Cruise at 100mph with less than 2000rpm is great, because this are car to use everyday. The lexus has better brakes, and equipment standard like heated seats, telescopic steering wheel, toutch screen Satnav, rear camera, more interior space, this are saloons and not pure sports cars, so other things have to bi considered.
And know what? the lexus has 5l engine but does a bit better MPG than the bimmet
I like very much the lexus, you already have noticed that, but im not emotional, im logical, so, dont get me wrong, the Bimmer still is the best sports in the lot, its amazing how good he is, but Jezza has made the lexus rubish, as he didnt make the mercedes, because the C63 im sure is worst than the lexus, but jeremy have made of a awesome car of it. May be because the lexus is not german? Where are the Lexus LS600h roadtest?
So the bimmer could be better overall, but it isnt better in every aspect.
Please dont get me wrong, in my modest opinion: the coolest car?... the lexus, i like the interior, and the exclusivity. The better car? it has to be the BMW for sure, outstanding handling and engine, 30years making sports sallons, is their blood, and they are the best for sure
