Excellent! Damn, looks like a coilover drop and not springs, was really hoping to find out what it was like with a spring drop and retaining the adaptive suspension...

Thank you everyone. We had some rain today and did some more testing but tomorrow you can probably figure out what we are going to do with it This picture actually leaked, we didn't actually take it so we decided to post it up. It feels like Jay-Zs new album or something

While the AG-Automotive group will eventually go with bags on this ride, we are working diligently with RS*R for USDM IS 250/350 suspensions (springs/coils). You can read more here

Let's just say you might get hit with a double whammy

In regards to my personal opinion of the car, again it looks great in person. Since the IS grew in size the 18" F-sport wheel/tire setup looks rather weak (sorry Lexus, still love ya ). This needs at least 20s to me but 19s will help. Eventually I am thinking trying some Vossen Precision Series 21s........

The front end is just bold and dynamic, the car has a real athletic look. I think a roof blackout will accent the big grill. The rear is sharp but I do see where the lower bumper could use some paint, I prefer the OEM diffuser on the GS F-sport. With the 20s it just gives it a mean bold look.

One thing you all will eventually notice is how the bodywork at the lower rear door swoops inward so the rear tire looks super meaty in the rear. I will try to take pics to better explain. Like the GS, this car features a rear spring that is separate from the shock.

Inside is well built, there are some cheaper bits but this is an entry level car. Overall it feels good and looks good, very sporty and there is a LFA resemblance for those that have sat inside that car. Again the Nuluxe is amazing, everyone thinks its leather. No cooled seats

The LFA gauges are just the topic of conversation. I can only imagine at future car meets owners showing people how the gauges move around and work. They are utterly fantastic.

Rear room is better, RastaRacer with a 2012 IS F-sport felt the rear was obviously bigger. The split folding rear seat is a Lexus first and just will be a great help to people to carry things.

Overall, everyone seems to love the car in person and even on our Instagram posts.

More to come soon!

Super update Mike, excellent to hear you guys trialing all the stuff I plan to do day 1 when I receive my car, roof blackout FTW! If at all possible can you guys experiment with just the spring drop without changing the shocks? Really would like to know what the ride is like?

I am guessing those are 20x9 up front. Any chance testing 20x10 or 10.5 up front please!! The wheels look great on the car by the way.

I believe it runs the same offset as the 2IS so 10-10.5 won't work on these either... lol


Look great so far mike....I agree with your review of the car...I myself don't think im sold on it yet...especially not the f-sport...im not sacrificing cooling seats...just for a cooler guage..lol...love how the CV5 sit on it also....

20x10 will sit aggressive up front like it did on the 2IS. I am sure one of the Lexus Boyz will stance out a 3IS soon Unfortunately for now, the 20x10 is only available with our VVS-CV3 in 5x114.3

Wow, just wow. This car is coming along nicely! That is probably my least favorite finish (I prefer the single color finishes like mine or the all-matte graphite, personally), but seeing them on the car, and lowered with the F sport accents and massive grille, those CV5's actually look damn good! Props, gentlemen! #teamvossen for life!
