Default a fully optioned F sport DOES exist! do why cant we get one?

look at this image i just found.
it is a HIGH res picture so you can zoom in but zoom in and look around what do we see?
we we know it's an F sport because of the gauge cluster.
we can see heated and cooled seat's
you can also see lane departure and radar cruise on the steering wheel.
also you can see seat memories on the driver door.
you can tell it has the rojo interior
also has the mark Lev system.
also notice it has rain sensing wipers
and if you look really carefully you can see what i think is a fog light switch inboard of the headlight switch.
so why the hell can't we order a fully optioned car!

interestingly enough no homelink on the mirror (that would be a simple addition and easy to get another mirror)
an also i don't see the SOS safety connect.

if you can't get the image full screen try this link

Do other country models also have wider navigation screen? Even on the US version it looks like there is enough space to accommodate, perhaps in the future models.

i was invited to view a 350 AWD in UW when it was delivered to my local dealer by mistake weeks before launch. I saw inside and was STOKED when i saw that the memory seating as an option. It was a feature i always wanted in my '12 2IS. i was dissapointed when i figured out that the AWD version had more available options than the RWD ones.

itll probably be a first year thing. So if these options are that important to you than just give Lexus some time to release RWDs with the options you'll be happy with.

Welcome to Europe. We get it all, except the fog lights in some countries.

You don't get everything in America because the morons that Lexus uses in their demographics don't want the option to pay more for added features let alone pay for a fully loaded model.

Agreed.... That's why my ISF has only heated seats instead of both heated/cooled even though they perforated the leather/alcantara...

Nice red with black combo. Guess you can always import if you wanted a "fully loaded" one

The traction control off button is missing? It should be by the EV mode and SNOW button.

The traction and snow mode buttons are there. It doesn't look like this is a hybrid.

That picture isn't of a IS300h, looks to be a loaded 250 as there is only SPORT and no SPORT+. The TRAC OFF button is there right above the SNOW button before the Driver Mode Select. Make the picture bigger and you can see it

Black "Power" button = not hybrid. It's a 250.

I can't believe how wide the navigation screen is! The U.S. consumer should have been given that as a standard feature lol

The screen is the same as in the US. You just don't see the broad frame since it's a black image on the screen.
