I just purchased a 2008 IS-F (for my wife), after driving that car I have never wanted a GS-F more! Oh why Lexus why can't I have a ~500hp V8 in my GS?
(also - Oh man that 8-speed transmission!).

The IS-F is also my wife's car, she is very beautiful and my 3 year old son is in the back. Lots of looks already and we've only had it for 2 days. She is coming from a modified WRX and drives both...

Yup, apparently the owner lived in London, on and commuted to Toronto, on (about 200km).

I just took it out for a little spin without my wife or kid.

Good. Lord.

What a car. A mustang wanted a piece of me, I'm pretty sure he is still at the light.

I just purchased an 2008 IS-F

I'm a long time lexus enthusiast, I have owned three of the four generations of the GS (2,3,4). I currently drive a white 4th gen 2013 GS350awd and I love it, it's just a little low on power.

Well, I purchased the 2008 ISF with 166,000mi (260,000km), wish me luck. It will be my wife's daily driver, but she is a stay at home mom so she doesn't put very many miles on the car. I have a 2013...

It will turn on and off frequently in heavy traffic, maybe every 5 to 10min the engine will run for 5 to 10min. You won't notice though so no worries. I once sat in stop and go traffic for 4 hours...

I agree that it doesn't work very well. I'm going to talk to the dealer about it. My 2007 GS450h worked much better.
