  1. Hi... Newbie here posting for the first time. So I've had a few cars over the years mostly being sporty hatchbacks in my younger years however since having a family I've moved onto saloons. I recently parted with my BMW 320D which I really enjoyed while it lasted however the DPF packed in amongst a plethora of other things going wrong. I then spontaneously purchased a 59 plate IS 220D which I've had now for a few months now however I must admit i'm not really a massive fan of it so I'm already looking at a new car to get. I have really taken in interest in the IS 300h F Sport however I've gotten nothing but mixed signals from reading reviews (and believe me I've read A LOT) so i'm hoping to get some better feed back from those who actually own one. As i mentioned before i owned a few sportier cars in my youth so I was mostly interested to find out if the 330h has a little kick to it and if current/previous owners actually found the car fun to drive and how would it feel in comparison to my current IS 220D? (Performance, economy) How would the 330h compare to other cars I have looked at such as the Mercedes CLA 180 or the Audi A3 Saloon?!? Any and all opinions would be greatly appreciate
  2. Again thank you for your quick reply mate... really appreciate it
  3. Thank you very much for response. I've actually booked a test drive for this weekend so I will definitely be looking forward to this a lot more now after reading your reply. Unless I win the lottery I won't be getting a brand new one so I've been looking at some of the 2013/2014 F Sport models on auto trader... Would you say I could still find one at that age that would still be reliable and would last me a good few years? Or would I be better of investing in heavily into a newer model?
  4. Is300h considering

    I'm actually in exactly the same boat... I had to get rid my BMW 320D at the beginning of the year due to numerous reasons and opted for a spontaneous purchase of a IS 220D however now I've had my 220D for a couple of months i'm already at looking to replace it with something a little more permanent. The 300H F Sport really intrigues me but a lot of reviews has created a shadow doubt about its performance. I'm obviously not intending to compete with super cars at traffic lights but i'd still like a little kick for quick round a bout exits and overtaking... In Comparison to the 220D how does it compete? I've also been looking at a Mercedes CLA and the Audi A3 saloon however there is just something about the IS 300H that really appeals to me but before i take the plunge i'd really appreciate if current/previous owners could share there experiences and if they could shed some more light on real world performance instead of reading a 1 or 2 day review
