I think that 318 HP is in Japan only from what I remember reading an article about, pretty sure the the USa will get the 306 HP engine

I got my car 1 month ago and IMHO the 2015 improvements aren't worth the wait, at least not for the US model! The improved multimedia interface and bigger screen are interesting, but I got used very quickly to the current system. I'm happy I didn't wait until August only to pay close to MSRP! I got a good deal.

I have a 250 F-SPORT and no regrets. I'll probably buy the car at the end of the lease.

My 2014 is supposed to come in this week but i decided to wait for the 15. I can order my car next week I was told. It really sucks waiting but for this kind of investment I really want the ml audio and the remote start. Ventilated seats will also be a nice litttle addition.

Waiting for the ML is definately worth it!

If I'm already on a lease, am I allowed to get the remote start from the dealer? That's probably the only thing I should have added.

While I think some of the new features of the 15 models would be great, one big aspect I've enjoyed over the past 8 months of ownership of my 14 is the exclusivity. I have enjoyed owning a vehicle that isn't seen in large numbers on the road. It gets lots of looks and is unique out there. That is going to change as more and more are sold, so I have enjoyed it while I could.

In another 2 years or so I'll upgrade, and be able to get those updates.

No regrets.

Makes sense, still seems a little misleading for them to list 318hp on the Lexus.ca website under upcoming vehicles without clarifying that.

Nope. Especially since very few things being shown for 2015 matter to me. I'm thrilled with this vehicle.

No regrets!

I agree with the exclusivity factor for sure! No BMW or MB out there has received the same # of double takes

Plus I went from a 2006 Rx400h to the 3IS. Every interior feature was an upgrade. Plus, this car is a lot sportier than the Rx!
