Ill wait to see if they drop that 5.0 in the new supra,, if it ever comes.

Then if Toyota wants to play they can TT that suckr.

The 8 speed looks to be pretty nice.

Cant wait to see how it go's.

I think they stricker for $65k.

Hey guys. I knew there would be a lot of haters. There were haters when I posted up my brother's G37s hehe
Anyways..finally drove the car today and my buddy let me floor it a bit. The power delivery is soooo smooth all the way to 6000 rpm (friend wont let me take it any higher hehe) The suspension is nice and stiff and can take corners A LOT faster than my e92 with stock sport suspension. I cant wait to do a little race with him with my V2 powered car. So far from my butt dyno, my car feels faster down low but who knows what he'll do to me after 80mph.
Videos to come in 850 more miles on the IS-F

sat in this car in Toronto auto show...
interior looks bit plain but m3's interior aren't
too sepcial either....!

Overall, the car looks much better in real life and
very aggressive!
to tell the truth, I was a bit (not alot but just a little)
disappointed with the M3. For some reason it
looked much better in pictures.
I'm gonna be flamed for this but,
look wise: RS4 > (M3 = IS-F)...

Driving experience might be a different story
though... I just can't make any assumptions
since I didn't drive any of them.

Saw the IS-F at DC car show...looked ok. I would never buy one.

My general impression of Lexus...waste of money.

It does look agressive but I just can't get myself into liking the interior even if you most of you guys think that their build quality is better.

It doesnt looks too bad in those pics....great color too. The stacked exhaust pipes have got to go. Too bad its not a manual...it may be a great shifting auto, but I love the feel of driving a manual.
