I hope Lexus realizes the quad exhaust 'stacking' feature is a bad choice.

A revision of the exhaust would definitely give it more market appeal.

It's retarded how Lexus compares their automatic torque converter tranny shifting time with true sequential auto clutch transmission.

Why would anyone pay more money for a LS-F over a better performing E90 M3 is beyond me.

I guess its because more people are concerned about 0-60 time in a straight line than overall performance.

When Lexus tries to be only luxurious then enthusiasts complain that Lexus is not sporty enough, when Lexus comes out with a sporty car then they are not luxurious enough....

It's their first attempt at a sports saloon, give them a break. Sure it's not perfect, there may be a few design areas that need tweaking but if it looked like a normal IS with just a bigger engine everyone here would have complained that it doesn't look different enough and that it's "just a Toyota".

It's not. Real pics have been shown over at ClubLexus.

I think the IS looks better than the IS-F personally.

haha thats my car, i posted it on clublexus!

Yes exhaust arent connected. Exhaust cannot be connected to the bumper because it rattles, and will damage the bumper. Hey if a 300k lambo can have it not connected, I'm okay with it.

btw to the guy who said BMW interior is better, you're an idiot. And yes i own e93.

If you think the any IS including the IS-F has a better interior "Quality" your high! That interior is "Designed" well I agree but the Texture of the Dash is inferior by far to the BMW, infact that lexus probably has the Cheapest dash board material available on the market IMO it looks like it was lifted from a Scion TC literally! BTW nice car.

I do drive both and give the nod to bimmer. My lexus is solid as a rock except for the dash. Lots of rattles. Have had many bmws and my wife's x5 dashes are solid. Well laid out and little noise.
