Default What happened to the new 2014 IS 350 F car?

I got a new, 2014 IS 350 F car about a couple weeks ago and I love it! The reason why I got this kind because I saw a IS F car a few years ago and it was fully loads. It included exhausted system, air-intake, sway bar, and etc. While I was driving around with my new car, I noticed something are missing. I couldn't figure it out. About a few days ago I took my car in to have the mechanic to install my license plate in the front and soon found out from the technician that my car is not fully loads expected for F Sport suspension. I was totally a sucker.

I spoke to the technician there and they told me for the F Sport exhausted system and air-intake would cost me around $2500 included labor works. I find the price outrageous, but I do not know if that what the products worth up to and the quality it'll bring to my car.

I need some suggestions. Should I stick to F sport exhausting system and air-intake or different brand? Do you know any shop that would sell cheaper for these products I am looking for? Any helpful tips would be very useful. Thank you.

you got an IS 350 F sport package, different from a Lexus ISF, ISF is a complete different car.

Default ouch

Did u even test drive the IS F? U should consult 3gen IS section. If not, sad to say that u thought they were the same but not. Seems like u purchased the wrong car.

Ah, that's why! I though IS 350 F and IS F are the same kind of car. I was misinformed. Alright, thank you so much guys for clearing this up for me. Indeed I am in a wrong forum, haha.

My sister recently got the IS350 FSport as well. It doesn't come with the exhaust or intake just suspension and interior goodies. Good luck with getting them but I wouldn't get those parts from the dealer. You can try Sewell Online to get cheaper price. The intake you can probably DIY and the exhaust, just go to somewhere else to get it done. I recommend never going to the dealer unless its for warranty and recall items.

you can get JoeZ intake pipe and JoeZ full exhaust system (F Sport is axle back) for a LOT cheaper than the dealer.

I'm a little confused. ISF does not come with sport exhaust and sway bar. Even if you did buy ISF you won't get them from factory.
