Winding Road fawns over IS-F

Judging from the C&D comparo and the WR review of the Lexus IS-F, we are heading back to the good old days of having to explain why a lighter, better handling Bimmer is a better car and more fun than the faster but heavier competition (MB C63 AMG & Lexus IS-F). Judging from the C&D article, the AMG Benz is a harsh ride, so the Lexus may kill it in sales in the US market. Judging from the Swedish airfield drags today, the V2'd 335 may be the real competition for the Lexus and AMG in the speed wars.

Yay for the M3. The C63's power is gonna be useless. Might as well drive a car that's entertaining at lower speeds.

Esp. considering that they're not connected to anything... They are just false tips that aren't functional. The actual exhaust pipes are behind them.

I absolutely hate when car companies do that SOOO MUCH. One reason I hate the RS4 exhaust which also have false tips, but I LOVE the sound that comes from them
