The 335xi and it's not even close. Although I'm not sure what navigation would have to do with their acceleration.

LOL, but he can tell us which spray tan works the best! Or where to get sweet deals on Affliction shirts.
Just messin OP. All joking aside, there is no comparison between an IS250 and a 335. The 335 heavily out accelerates an IS250

op, you need an awd is350 to even come close (do they even make is350 in awd? you never see them). is250 is a relative joke with respect to accel.

The face palm was coming until I saw he/she was a new member... with that being said

IS250 w/nav has about 204HP and 335xi has about 300HP. Just comparing HP figures alone, the 335xi has better* acceleration. I would imagine the 335xi also has better* acceleration than the lexus IS350 (306HP)...w/nav


*0 to 60mph time

The problem with the 335's is the IS250 was designed for Japanese upgrades. That means you can put more Monster, Red Bull, Type-R, TRD, JDM, +5 HP, etc. stickers on the IS250 and potentially get it up to around 700hp. The 335 is from Germany so the stickers won't do anything. Also the IS250 handles a lot better because everyone knows BMW's handle like shit and Toyota Camry steering systems are designed for racing.

really? Really?

I was just going to post and say that the IS250 is the equivilent of driving a 4cyl. I've driven my friend's, and it is a bear.... No power, and handles like a camry.

335xi will DESTROY the IS250.

Nav actually brings the is250 to 304.2hp, beating the 335 in acceleration to 60.

Sarcasm, I think some of you need to look it up.

That being said, the 335xi is considerably faster in every way than an IS250

on a serious note, i had an is250 for a loaner the other day and man is that thing slow. id probably take a civic si over that lexus. but if you are looking for a cheap and reliable alternative to luxury and are or drive like a 55+ woman, then the 250 should be sufficient.

if you're just a dude who gets lost a lot, the unbearable Idrive interface and function could get a little more bearable.

Lexus IS250 (2.5L V6):
Torque: 185 ft-lbs. @ 4800 rpm
Horsepower: 204 hp @ 6400 rpm

IS350 (3.5L V6):
Torque: 277 ft-lbs. @ 4800 rpm
Horsepower: 306 hp @ 6400 rpm


335xi (3.0L I6 w/ TT):
Torque: 300 ft-lbs. @ 1400 rpm
Horsepower: 300 hp @ 5800 rpm

OP, You tell me which one is faster, and has better acceleration...
(FYI, it's not the Lexus's)

And if you have a BMW 330i (according to what you drive):
Torque: 220 ft-lbs. @ 2750 rpm
Horsepower: 255 hp @ 6600 rpm
Your Current BMW is better than an IS250... You would be Downgrading if you got an IS250
