Very nice.....those rear fender flares
Needs nice wheels with a proper offset and stance.

The front grill looks horrendous though - i like the RCF front much more.

not feeling the chrome surrounds the front grille, a bit too much bling for my liking

I find pretty ugly all that chrome too. Especially on a sport car like this

If that is the F-sport model then it is a big let down that the front grill is not like the F-sport on the IS and RC-F

Agreed. I don't care for the slats on the grill, but the rest of the car looks great.

Or, as we say down home:
Yes. Those two circles on either side of the lower grille are fog lights.

I also noticed that. I wonder why it was covered.

Yeah. Would luv to see this car in White, Black or maybe the Dark Grey.

It is a good overall design, but I do agree, the vents are one of the weakness. Another one I think it has it's the light strip under the main headlights. I still haven't warmed up to the Nike Swoosh ones on the new IS.
