This is super good news. Just tested a '14 F-sport 350 fully loaded today and fell in love. I've owned two M3's in the past, and I got to say, this car beats BMW at its own game. I will be looking at trading out of my leased '13 VW GTI to get into a new IS for sure.

I love seeing all the BMW people just shifting over to the Lexus side Can't wait to see your new 3IS!

It will be a few months, probably wait until the 2015's come out and may try and snag a late '14 for cheap.

Coincidentally, my brother just bought a new 135i M-sport fully loaded a few months back. I had been nudging him to get a German car for a while...now that he does, i'm switching back to Japanese!



I talked to the GM of the Lexus dealer today (typical after the sales person doesnt land a deal I guess...), we got off on the subject of the new Lexus designs and how they are such a vast departure from the old "round and soft" Lexus of yesteryear. He made the comment that "Generation X/baby boomers are dying off or having to come out of retirement because they lost all their money on failed investments...so they aren't buying cars like Lexus anymore" inferring the Lexus target demographic has changed.

This also explains why the new IS has got such a bad rap on its asthetics from the car magazine reviews, as most of those who are testing the cars and writing articles are middle aged older men who just don't get the new modern looks at all.

I believe that Lexus will be offering a turbo engine option soon so be on the look out for that. You get the luxury and reliability of a Lexus with a turbo like BMWs.

Hey, careful now! Old is mental, not just physical.

Aloha,

absolutely interested in this. Debating whether to try to get a 2014 configured as I would like, or wait to order a 2015.
I hope someone stickies a thread when the new specs are released...

Default Any new news?

My lease end pre-inspection is tomorrow and new cars are on my mind again, so I thought I would bump this up to see if anyone has any new information on the '15's. Surely we will be hearing something soon... Really wanting another USB

This may be too much to ask, but I hope the AWD F-Sports will have power tilt steering wheel. That's all I'm asking for haha. I can deal with no memory seats and no tilting mirrors.. at least give me the power tilt! Come on, Lexus! Turn this car into a luxury sports sedan!
