I am with you on that all the way. The old IS is just so dam sexy looking! I will take it anyday over the new IS, which is a quick car, but they killed a lot of good stuff which the 1 generation IS had.

Yeah, I know, it was a car that the word 'Jazzy' perfectly described. It made the BMW 3 series look horribly overpriced when it was released in '99.

It looks more like a new 6 series to me. But I don't care if it looks like anything else. This thing is hot!
