Thread bump. Now that you guys have had the exhaust for a while:

1) How intrusive is it at 2000-2500 RPM, inner city driving or cruising
2) Highway drone?

It is normal for the car to start and immediately die the first time after you disconnect the battery. My 2IS did this also. CELs could be caused by loose clamps (vacuum leak).

Drone

I've been hoping to hear an IS350 in person with the Fsport exhaust. Low note with no drone is exactly what I'm after too.

Anyone in Houston w/ F-Sport Exhaust??

I'm thinking about the F-Sport exhaust for the IS350... Does anyone in Houston have it on their car who wouldn't mind a ride along so I can see how it sounds?

Food and beer on me afterwards :)

Yes they are definitely going to release an F-Sport intake. I emailed Lexus and asked them that question a week ago - they confirmed that one will be offered but didn't give any hints as to when.
