I voted no, however, where I live I do not need them. If I lived in a region where fog occurred just ONE day out of the year... I'd want them.

Voting "yes". I like the extra set of lights plus I don't like blank covers on most cars either.

Here's a picture from Toyota TS030 driver Nico Lapierre's twitter...

He drove the F-Sport IS with the fogs in white. A nice 'real world' look at what the car is with the fogs.

I've found factory fogs useless as far as function in my 2.5RS, GTI, 4Runner, MINI S, and Prius v. The only reason I'd want them is aesthetics.

yeah, and i dont care for them in GS F-Sport... but for IS F-Sport i think they work since they give some sense of normality to the front fascia :-)

Anyone noticed that on the USA Lexus website, the main pic for the 2014 IS F-Sport page has fog lights.... maybe there is hope?

We need Fogs! I see Lexus only placing the fogs on the F-Sport model, or maybe just leaving them for the ISF. Regardless, Fog lights just look cooler in the rear view mirror than no fog lights. C'mon LEXUS! Listen to the People!
