Do it best color for the F plus 5 years from now the F will be worth more than your 350.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I am going to the Dealership today to test drive the car along with seeing what the numbers come out to. So we will see how it plays out.

If the insurance, fuel,down grade on the interior equitments are ok for you then it's worth it.
Also FYI, Lexus modified the suspension and instrument cluster on the 11 ISF which it's better than 09+ models.

If that car was here in Orlando, you wouldn't have a choice, I would have already drove down to the dealership and purchased it. Easy decision for me! I'm all about the horse's....

Insurance should be same , depends on your driving record, interior not so much, ISF comes with bucket seats and not to mention 2 tones for some cars. 2010 and up ISF up grade to LSD , that a plus but still not enough. Extra upgrade rear tires side from 255 to 285 and front 225 to 245. Set of good coils , add fpsort rear sway bar . ?Now u can really feel the beast Not to mention the bolts on

Currently I have a 2011 SGM IS350 F Sport and in my area the dealership is selling a Starfire Pearl 2009 ISF with 36,*** miles on it. Would you keep a car you bought brand new or go with the F if the numbers work out?
If it was me I would do it. Just negotiate it down a few grands. You can't let the F bother your head
