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!
