I'm trying to figure out if the press cars sat lower in the front then the production ones.
I requested Lexus to bring it up for the event along with the VIP Auto Salon LS460 that was at SEMA. That particular IS-F was supposed to go to the Utah Auto Show but ended up at our event instead. So there was no IS-F at the Utah auto show this year.

So did it sit lower then the production model? I told myself no mods (yeah right) but I gotta drop the front a little because it's got more gap then the rear.

The White ISF @ JDM Theory was a pre production but close to production model. Essentially everything on that car is what you see to date. It was a freshly air freighted ISF, just a few days prior to JDM theory. The lowest sitting ISF was the first hand built Ultrasonic Blue Mica that was featured in Detroit last year at 07 NAIAS.
