My g/f is considering this car so it definitely attracts girls I'd say it's far from a girls car. There is really no such thing. Very nice car. I happen to like the ISF :-D

It's a nice car. If you can't figure out what car to buy without worrying about what perceived sex it's supposed to be driven by.. then my my my you do have problems!

The 250 can be had with a proper transmission, it's the drivers car of the two.

I'm just going from experience that i'm mostly seeing women drive IS250. And about 80% of cars are also AWD.

The 250 is definitely girly, the 350 is mostly - late 40s early 50s male professional who already did the BMW thing and had many bad experiences at the shop.

I see girls/women driving it.
I also see women driving many other cars.

It's a solid vehicle...I'd purchase it if I had the money.
