My Take: 2009 IS looks alright still, so be sure to check out any remaining 2009 models if you are in the market for an entry-level sports sedan. I think the 2010s are a bit expensive right now, but the residual is high enough to offset some of the MF. Don’t forget MSDs if available. The key here is the sale price. If you can secure very good discounts off the MSRP (ideally around 10% or more), then you might be able to pull off a decent deal on the 2010 IS, even on the convertible.
