One of the biggest differences would be the AVS (Sport+ mode) suspension on the IS350 F Sport. It makes a huge difference.

Up here in Jacksonville I seem to see a lot of base IS250's and only a few F-Sports. That being said, I've never seen an IS350 F Sport, other than my own UW/Rioja Red combo.

Anybody know what the stock 3IS FSport wheels weigh?

I'm loving the Velgen VMB5 in 19s and the Vossen CVTs. I'm leaving towards the Velgens, though. All of them look great on the 3IS.

Using simple math and lots of Dyno charts of stock IS350s.

There is no way there is only a 6-8% drivetrain loss. 15-18% is standard for RWD applications with 12% being in the super low-end.
