RC350 F Sport vs 435i

CarAdvice out of Australia put together an evenly weighted comparison of the two coupes.

Quote:
rom the moment the Lexus RC350 F Sport threaded through a first sharp corner it clicked that this is not only a proper BMW 435i rival, but is one that could dethrone the benchmark in the premium coupe class.

Lexus nails quality and refinement almost consistently enough that its engineers even seem bored with just ticking off those virtues. Early impressions indicate the Lexus RC350 F Sport brings a fresh set of cards to the table while maintaining the expectations of its brand Ė donít skip to the bottom of this test and instead witness one of the closest contests this year.

Look at that! The RC350 F actually beat the 4 Series in this comparison. I'm glad to see that because I've felt that many comparisons have been a little harsh to the RC. It actually only beats the 4-Series on features and price. I'm okay with that though. Basically it means that the Lexus is just as good with better features and pricing. If you want a BMW you can pay a lot more money for it, that's totally your decision.

Yes I was thinking about the BMW 435i and the Mercedes Benz C300 coupes , but after reading the long term maintenance costs of those two european cars I couldn't go pass buying the Lexus for value for money. Sure its not 100% up with the comfort of a Benz or the sportiness of a BMW but it still is a long way ahead of something like Toyota 86 or Nissan 370Z. I intend to keep this car 10 years so don't want huge service and repair costs hitting me every 3-4 years unlike the Euros. If you just lease and trade in every 3 years than yes a Euro may be nicer.
