Two peas in a pod! They both look great. Is the 3IS making a cameo at tower shoppes anytime soon? Can't wait to see it in person!

Life can be quite interesting..... we hardly get to drive the car.... my wife now walks to work most days and I seem to be driving every other car but this one....so sadly it sits a ton

After some travel I took it out for a spin and I genuinely enjoy walking to this car, getting inside and driving the snot outta it. I drove a TON of different cars and the GS F-sport has passion, that "soul" in cars. The team behind this car really set out to make a car that will make you smile.

Even not speeding around, due to the high quality of the interior and its layout and the usual Lexus suppleness well it makes a great Lexus.

Really dreaming of a GS F now.....can only imagine the possibilities...for now, I cannot say enough great things about this car.

That's awesome and I completely agree with everything you said about the GS. I just can't get enough of it, it is just so damn gorgeous to look at and drive.

Hi BluePrint, really looking forward to your comparisons between the ride and handling of the GS vs the new Q50 you got.

We call her "Scarlett" due to the red leather.... she's been posted by Lexus on the splash page for the #itsyourmove IS launch event next Saturday. We both will be there in the Vossen booth, hope to meet some of you Cali owners!

Our F-sport has been to Orlando twice in the past month or so and the ride up and down has been awesome, what a great vehicle for a 3 hour road trip.....

This past weekend we shot down to Orlando to support a CL O.G Wringo and his "Showdown in O Town"

There I debuted something new The new Vossen CVT directional wheel

The CVT looks good on Scarlett, can we get a rolling vid, preferably a slow roll, i want to see those wheels in action at a slow pace.

Thanks…time to finally go lower

The wife agreed to go with RS-R sport-i coilovers I have planned the install for Thursday at my friends at Dynamic Turbo. We both agreed the car could look slightly lower (and I have given RS-R the feedback and they are evaluating making the down spring slightly lower) and we would have the flexibility of raising it for her daily use and lowering it for car meets and shows. Preparing for SEMA really tied up my time.

Seems she is also warming up to a bodykit so researching that as well. I love the integrated dual exhausts so not sure I want to change the rear.

Thinking seriously about a BBK except the F-sport has a BBK up front..but the looks of a full 4 piece BBK gives me feelings

Pics coming this week….

And nearly a month late…coils still sitting there…super busy and took the GS on a 1600 mile or so road trip in the South….car performed flawlessly….minimal seat fatigue compared to my GS 450h… I do wish for more power..its calling me…

My wife loves the GS but I think she is getting the itch for a SUV……so now started to early looking around…clearly if we make that move this will accelerate mods for the GS

Before our road trip we took the GS to "Simply Clean". For whatever reasons we were in a section with no music so I decided to just leave the car on a few hours and blast the Mark Levinson from the iPhone. Mind you her car is the least modded out the group but I left the windows down and doors open which attracted a ton of attention since it was the only GS F sport there and the music was blasting at Max.

Everyone with their "show cars" was shocked at the attention it received. People simply love the interior and were shocked at how clear and loud the music was playing. I can't state how many times I had to tell people it was a stock system. I spent a lot of time also showing people the interior which drew rave reviews. Its pretty clear Lexus really needs to do a better job showing people what this car offers.

I think the best compliment from the ML system was a guy that was standing there for a good 3 songs and he told me he competes in audio competitions and has some 2,000 watt system and it wasn't as good as the ML. He wanted to buy the system!

The car is simply a pleasure for both of us. Thank you Lexus.

You can see the car partially in this video…

CVT truly compliment the GS! The Cv4 are ultimately my favorite wheel for the car!
