TL vs TSX cluster (please remember I compared 2004 models when deciding on a TSX - if the newer TLs have been updated, then great!): it's hard to tell from the pictures that the guages in the (2004) TL are really recessed into separate "holes", whereas the TSX guages are flat. These recessed guages are what reminded me of both older cars as well as American cars. Add in the actual layout and design of the guages, and, to me, the difference is even greater.

Just my $.02...
I wouldn't consider the TSX simply because it is a 4-cyl. That is just my personal preference, but I am looking for a 6 cyl. I see them everywhere, too. The IS250 isn't everywhere I turn. Car handles great (even though I wish it had more hp and came in a MT in the AWD), and I love the way it looks inside and out. It was a no brainer for me, but good luck in your decision!

What if that 4 cyl had better performance than the 6 cyl? Getting a car by counting cylinders without looking at the overall picture is rather short sited.
If you consider the current sales volume (~3500 for TSX and ~5000 for the IS) it seems the TSX is more exclusive than the IS.

Good point about the cylinders. If all you cared about was sportiness, the 4 cylinder Mazdaspeed 6 will blow all the cars in this discussion out of the water!!!

If I were buying a car, it'd be between the TL and the Maxdaspeed 6. I think the TL would edge it out based on luxury, but I'm not sure the Mazda wouldn't be more fun.

I don't like both TL and Mazda 6.
I don't like TSX, either.

I take it this means you like the IS250?
