Default 5 days .... 3800miles .... Proud of IS-F

Just thought i would share, since im european living in states and i do sports for living i have to keep renewing my paperwork and visa for every season , so for me that means to travel outside of USA and usually a trip from Naples FL up to Canada to Ottawa , well in october i made my trip in my 2014 IS 350 f-sport and last week i took the 2012 ISF for drive .... Well first i was amazed by the MPG i was getting almost 24.9 MPG at cruise control set to 82MPH same thing with IS 350 meant 23.3MPG .... Over all the cars were comparable at comfort , but i enjoyed my trip with ISF a little better than with the 350 .... I drive a lot and i put almost 40 000miles on my 350 from september u til april , the ISF ive had for over two months and put almost 15 000miles on it and loved every single one of them .... I drive the car hard most of the time and it goes to the tracks, 1/4 mile and to west palm raceway and after 20+ passes at the strip brings me home in comfort with getting 25 MPG .... Had all kinds of cars in europe, Mercedes, Bmw, Audi , but so far my Lexuses did the best and the ISF is a stand out with performance and durability , nothing worst and more expensive than changing transmissions on Bmws and Mercedeses .....
Well cheers to our cars

Great to see . After 7 track days in a year with ZERO issues I know the F is well built and well designed . Great to be able to really use the car with full confidence , especially with a car of this level of performance

The ISF......The perfect car for an enthusiast. It can be driven to the track, run hard all day , and then transport me hundreds of miles to my home in luxury and comfort to pick up the wife for dinner and a movie....

Wow you drive a lot! That might be a record 15,000 miles in 2 months, keep that kind of pace going and you'll have the most miles on an F in no time

Beautiful F you have there. I too driven many european cars and in the end, lexus had always outlasted them all.
