LFA is no beauty queen but I like it. The 599 GTO is no beauty queen nor the 458 or SLS.

The DBS is.
lol now this is a funny post

yeah it'd have to be a video to get all 4 calibers. A picture would only capture 2 at a time, but anyway, does anyone have an answer to my question? Can you get those ugly yellow side markers in front of the front tires clear? Or white? It'd look much better, give it a more euro feel, the ugly yellow markers are all over US cars, but the Euro versions are usually clear or white. I think it's look better.

LoL on the "calipers"


To answer your question the Amber color is regulated by the D.O.T. for the US Spec cars

So any other color or replacment will have to be made custom or aftermarket or maybe if the LFA Euro versions can be purchased overseas..
(if they are a different color)

given how much money owners have, they won't bother with clear reflectors (illegal btw like joe said). if anything, they will just order a euro spec lfa front bumper and replace it. euro owners have this done all the time

I like that gray paint on the LFA , looks Truffle Mica-rish (at least in pictures, although I think it's a bit lighter), which is my second most favourite paint for the LS, and among the best for other Lexus models as well

I figured it was the law to have them on american cars, which is why you see them. But it's not like there isn't the 'import crowd' that replaces things like this a lot with clear markers, and clear headlights. I can see if they have a yellow bulb but have the marker clear, that would look better as well. Just something I think the european cars have that are better than american versions. Why does america have to be so **** about things like that? Every other country the cars look cool, come to america and you've got them dulled and dumbed down IMO

^^ I got bad news for you...

The Euro Spec LFA side marker is even worse.. Not only is it Amber, but it bulges outwards...

At least the US Spec is flat.

Yeah, I saw it in person.

Look, i like the LFA. It's really cool, its fast, its exotic-like and its a Lexus...which means a lot to me. If I had the 375K sitting around I'd buy one. I just think the front could have been made to look better. Its not ugly but its not as attractive as the rest of the car....not as attractive as it needs to be for 375K. IMO.
I would still buy one. If I had that kinda cheddar, I could get someone to mould or fabricate something to improve it to my liking.

If you don't like the front end that's cool. I think it looks fine the way it is. It doesn't need to look like anything but what it is. If it were more like ferrari or Lambo, it wouldn't be the LFA. I've learned to appreciate cars for what they are. There are some that aren't the greatest, but then there are some you just have to look at as a whole and appreciate the package. The LFA is one of those cars for me. The Nurb edition I think looks even better. The front lip spoiler/splitter and the side canards give it that race look, then the rear wing and the different style wheels all make it more attractive in my eyes. I hope someone in the US options for that model and shows it off!

So now we have confirmation that US of A is receiving 175 LFA.

My guess was 171 to be exact I was quite close:

Making it worse for me is how good the prototypes looked up front. Beautifully shapes headlights, grill and facia. The they make the real thing look like it doesn't belong to the rest of the car.
No biggie to me. I'd still buy one if I had the cash. Either customize the front of get it in black. Then I'd put some sweet wheels on it that take the attention away from the front.
I know how to make it right.

I don't think the prototype looked as good. The headlights weren't. Maybe there could be some sharper edges on the production car's front bumper, but those strips of LEDs going down probably wouldn't have made it to production regardless. I never expected them to. I thought the concept looked incomplete, unfinished. The mirrors were what let me down i think. I don't like the production car's mirrors that much either, a bit big for me, but they have purpose. I also like the race cars 3/4 behind the windows, I don't like the radiator intake as much, but it still looks good to me.

The world’s best automobiles combine with some of racing’s most famous circuits in Forza 3 Ultimate Collection; the game will have more than 100 track layouts to race on, including Laguna Seca, Tsukuba, Road America, as well as endurance tracks like Le Mans de la Sarthe and the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

When you aren’t taking your cars on track and putting them up against the game’s demanding AI, Ultimate Collection owners will also be able to take advantage of Forza 3’s outstanding community features, from eight-player online racing via Xbox LIVE, to sharing their paint shop, photography, and video creations with the wider Forza world via the storefront. Racing, drifting, drag, tuning, painting, photography, video… it’s all here for you in the Ultimate Collection.

Look for the Forza Motorsport 3 Ultimate Collection on store shelves in late October in the US, Canada, UK, and Germany and in other territories in the coming months.
