Get the Vantage. 20k isn't bad mileage and cars these days are lasting a long time.

Assuming you can afford the insurance, maintenance and everything else (all of which will be a lot more), the Vantage, hands down.































The ISF has the unfortunate circumstance of sharing a body type with a $30K IS250, and when you put some F-sport accessories and badging on a 250, it can be darn difficult to tell the difference between the two without looking under the hood (or driving it). Word is that "ISF" is known at the dealership as "In Stock Forever".































On the other hand, no mistaking an Aston Martin, and it gets attention / prestige in a way that a Lexus never will.































But don't make the mistake of thinking that because the initial sales price might be similar, they cost the same.....nothing could be farther from the truth.....the Aston Martin will cost you way more in the long run.































Good luck!

I would NEVER own ANY vehicle from the UK, so it's the Lexus for me brother.

The Aston Martin might be leased, and leased vehicles are well abused by previous owners. In the process, the reliability will not be good.































The 2014 ISF isn't even out yet, Toyota/Lexus is currently constructing, researching & developing the ISF sedan and RCF coupe.































In all honestly, the 2014 will be worth the wait because the 2014 IS250 Fsport already has a much better improvement than its predecessor so I am certain that the new 2014 ISF will be even better than its predecessor.































The Aston Martin is more like a Grand touring performance car, very comfortable, beautiful but the V8 doesn't feel that quick as any other V8s do. Over the V8 Vantage, I would go for the Porsche 911 Carrera because thats a much better car.































Aston Martin is more expensive to maintain, insure, tax, fuel cost than the Lexus.































Wait for the ISF, see how the reviews are. I would keep looking but if your being impatient, go ahead and lease the Aston.
