I'm the editor for GuysGab.com, a popular Men's Lifestyle site. We have a pretty heavy focus on automotive, and many of the major automotive brands bring us out to test out their new cars, or give us cars to drive around for a week and review.

Each week brings us something new.. On Monday they're picking up the IS350 and giving us an LS460 F SPORT to drive for the next week. But the week after that, we're getting a Buick..

Overall, it's a pretty sweet gig.

Haha.. My wife has a 3G TL, and we couldn't stand the looks of the "beak" and everything in the 4Gs.. But if you look at a '13 model, you'll see that they've continued to tweak the TL year after year, and it's actually pretty nice looking now.

As for the IS, we parked next to a 2011 IS350 today, and it's funny how bland the 2G looks in comparison.
