Question F-Sport ROLLCALL Thread

As the F-Sport is a model it its own right, who among us own an F-Sport and what are its features?

1) 3.5L or Hybrid
2) Exterior Color
3) Major features/options
4) Any modifications done
5) Gender and Age Group (M/F, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, etc)

In addition to the objective points above, feel free to share any other points or experiences with your F-Sport.

Thanks!

1) 3.5L
2) Nebula Gray
3) No options in Canada. Comes with NAV, VDIM, ML, HUD, power tail gate as major features.
4) Some carbon fiber wrap, mostly visible on front bumper to give it the full blackout, aggressive top-down spindle grill look
5) Male. 37

I've posted a few pics already in other threads so I won't re-post here. See http://www.clublexus.com/forums/rx-t...wrap-pics.html

I'm very happy Lexus built this vehicle to reel in the target demographic as myself instead of going to BMW and Audi. Love the crisp tight handling and flat cornering (yes flat with barely any body roll!) as I never did experience in any past RX I owned. Heads are turned especially when they notice the front with LEDs lit. It really stands out from the crowd. And bumps are soaked up firmly but not jarring with little compromise to the luxury roots of the RX. A+ Lexus.

1) RX450h
2) Starfire Pearl
3) Added the Mark Levinson stereo. Comes with nav, power tailgate, HUD, VDIM as standard.
4) No modifications.
5) Male. 45 years

Love the handling compared to my 2004 RX300. The quality has vastly been improved, definitely up to par with Audi, if not better. Handling is much much better, no body roll. Acceleration is amazing for a vehicle of this mass too. Looking forward to the IS hybrid F sport next year . My wife's jealous and wants an F sport too

MASHRX. Congrats on your first Lexus. You won't regret it! I need to ask, is this your first Lexus because Lexus has now injected some sport into their cars (and RX)... if your Jetta is any indication...

Congratulations! Would love to see pics of the Claret Mica (VERY rare) if it's not too much trouble for you to post.

Looks great especially in certain angles/lighting conditions. One car argue this F-Sport RX stands out even more over the slew of whites, silvers, grays (i.e. mine), and black ones out there. Had I not had my Matador Red CT, the Claret Mica would have been in the running.

First congratulations. Youngest... Definitely contenders . Curious to know which one of you (M or F) has the bigger passion towards the RX or time spent driving and pampering it? Maybe it's the one who is on this forum?
