yeah, IS200... they are kind of the epitome of...slow. They may pull like a train above 4500...but trains aren't really fast. I remember my mates mum got one in 99 and I thought my mums 318i was slow, made the beemer look like a quick thing (which it wasn't).
This just tie in with my experience. I used one for a couple of years for occasional London to Highlands trips. It was a 3.0L and point to point it was a very fast car.

The problem with your big thirsty Holdens is, until recently, they needed a half mile notice of a corner, preferably by letter.
The IS200 is a fantastic car to drive, I would consider one all day if it fit my needs.
All but one or two of the MX5 variants are no faster than the 2.0L model, but I know which I would rather be in on hedge lined roads and motorways..
The doctor diagnosed me with hereditary diarrhoea. I can't understand, I wear a kilt.
