Default Will I be disappointed with Lexus IS250 awd from 2008 G35x?

I am driving a g35x 2008 model with vqhr35 engine producing roughly 300 hp,

although it is sportier and fun compared to lexus IS250,

I am marrying soon and moving to downtown plus my wife is not a very good or

at least a sporty driver...she drives like an old lady.

(G35x is great except crazy gas mileage too...so I am not thinking about IS350)

I am looking at new or used lexus IS250 awd for a newly wed car for us.

I need some comments from IS250 owner or preferably someone who has experienced both,

and will I be missing the power from Infiniti G35x,

or the low gas mileage, quietness and all around more reliable IS250 can compensate on the


Thank you

The IS is a sweet little ride, but you're giving up 100+ hp for maybe a couple of mpg.
